Michael Eric Dyson of the Chicago Sun-Times further explained his controversial column last week in regards to R. Kelly’s child porn charges. He argued that Kelly needed a minister and therapist more than a judge and jury. He goes on to explain, “Simply sending such offenders to jail without attempting to cure what ails them, and what harms their victims even more, may not ultimately fix what’s wrong. Without proper therapy, many sex offenders, once released from prison, repeat their crimes many times over. If Kelly is proved guilty, he must face legal punishment. But punishment without therapeutic and spiritual rehabilitation may prove a short-term remedy without long-term effect.” Suntimes.com has since removed the article.
