What do people think about peadophiles being released from prison (early) and compensated (financially) for being abused whilst in prison. This is very intringuing for me as I can't beleive how we as a society should compensate (from our taxes) for the cruel and inhumane behaviour of these individuals rather than spending that money councelling the poor victims. What do you think about this?

I think it is wrong that they are released early, however, people should not be abused. It doesn't matter who they are or where they came from. If you allow people to be abused in prison then someone, somewhere, will use the excuse that they abused their child because they commited an action that was punishable by this in prison, so why should it not occur at home for the same crime? You cannot make exceptions to the rules for anyone, anytime, ever, or that will become the rule.
