    I just saw a programme about a man who received over 1000 years in prison for more than 80 counts of child pornography. I was wondering what people's opinions are on this penalty as it is the second longest ever.

    I am not saying I think this man is right at all (in fact the very opposite) but does nobody find it strange that this man received a longer sentence than mass murderer's, child rapists/murderer's, serial killers etc. when he never physically hurt anyone (directly)? Surely distributing child porn is not as bad as raping and/or murdering a child or several children.

    I feel I had better repeat, I am not on this man's side, just incase that did not come across there.

    I don't understand what they mean. I know he is in there for the 1000+ years straight if that's what you mean. It has now actually been shortened to 180 years though.

    LMAO shortened to 180 years????HAHAHA it would be easier to say for one lifetime instead of changing it all the time. But I do agree that noone should have anything to do with child porn.

    So how did that work

    Did he win appeals against some convictions, or on some of the sentences.

    Whats the point in giving someone a 1000 year prison sentence?
    Why not just say "I sentence you to spend your life in jail. You will die there. But not before being gang raped and tortured on a daily basis"

    Yes, an appeal.
    But still, I was wondering what people's opinions on this man getting a longer sentence than child murderer's and rapists.
