Scary...

A Nevada judge has called a man's child pornography offense an issue of "impulse control" (via Feministing). The man was sentenced to up to 18 years in prison for posessing more than 800 pornographic images of children and will be eligible for parole in 2 years. But, based off of the judge's comments (see below) before sentencing, it's a wonder the man was given any prison time.

These kinds of offenses are problems with impulse control.
...
When I say that, it's my understanding that most men are sexually attracted to young women. When I say young women I don't just mean women that ... you should be attracted to. I mean women from the time they're 1 all the way up until they're 100.
...
It's likely that most people would find young girls sexually attractive.

The judge's comments are disturbing. Perhaps someone should be investigating if he has child pornography since he seems to think it's perfectly normal to find young girls sexually attractive.

I need a shower now.

What the..!! I'm stunned. Just when I think I have heard it all, we have JUDGES saying b.s. like this! I'm with you--this judge should definitely be investigated, pronto!
