Let the punishment fit the crime

I'd just sentence him to *wear* the stuff, in public, for a month.

I just thought that everybody overreacted. "The girls are doing fine". Of *course* they're doing fine. They just looked at him and said "*Duh*"...

i dont think it's overreacting to be upset that a strange man bought the underwear right off a middle school girl. that is really fucked up. that man is a predator and should be arrested. this is the kind of incident that the man will gain confidence from -- his next crime might not be so benign. it's like kids who torture kittens growing up to be serial killers.

My point, Rebekah, was that *the girls* obviously weren't especially messed up by it... until *everyone told them that they ought to be*.

*So many* of our neuroses come from people telling us that we *ought* to be weak, even when we are strong. And I, for one, am getting a little sick of that.
