Short Bios of Past and Present TtP Bloggers? Close, But Not Quite

My gut reaction would be to generally oppose civil confinement laws (although they're a better alternative than Bobby "I'll Cut Your Nuts Off" Jindal's approach to pedophiles), but the profiles of some of the winners confined to Ward's Island in this Village Voice piece makes me re-think my opposition to confinement laws:
Christopher James, 26, whose life was disastrous from the start. He was born with the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck, causing a lack of oxygen to his brain, and two genetic syndromes that cause eye-movement problems, small testicles, and reduced fertility.[...]

All of these early problems, according to a state psychiatrist, contributed to what came next: an inability to control deviant sexual behavior. James was kicked out of his house and arrested for his first offense at age 19, after a seven-year-old girl accused him of touching her vagina. Out on probation, he was arrested a second time for fondling a 17-year-old girl while she was sleeping. That incident was caught on tape after the family he was living with put cameras up because they thought James was stealing from them. By 2005, he was behind bars and in trouble for violently raping a fellow inmate.
Jesus, this guy didn't take a break. Pre-arrest -- molesting. Probation -- molesting. Jail -- raping. Impressive resume. And all because of small testicles and shifty eyes.

More creeps here.
