How does this happen?

    There's a Canada-wide warrant for a four-time convicted pedophile suspected of abducting a 10-year-old boy. An Amber Alert has been issued.

    The suspect's MO is always the same -- get out of jail and immediately go after another helpless little kid. How can this guy be walking the streets? Why hasn't he been given harsher sentences? Why does he keep getting chance after chance?

    I'm tempted to take out ads announcing I'll pay $1,000 to whoever kills this lowlife when he's finally caught and returned to prison.

    Whitmore has a long criminal record.

    In 1993, he was convicted of abduction and five sexual offences involving four young boys in Toronto. He spent a year and four months in custody.

    Nine days after his release, he took an eight-year-old girl from Guelph, Ont., to Toronto and was sentenced to more than four and a half years in jail.

    Less than a month after his November 2000 release, he was found in a downtown Toronto motel with a 13-year-old boy. He was sentenced to one year in jail.

    In 2002, a Toronto judge sentenced him to three years in jail for probation violations because he fled to B.C. after being found in the company of a five-year-old boy.

    Those parole violations included the fact he was carrying a ``rape kit" in his backpack while in B.C. It contained latex gloves, pictures of young children, tubes of jelly lubricant, duct tape, a sleeping bag and plastic zipper ties that can be used as handcuffs.

    Whitmore was released on June 16th, 2005, after serving his entire three-year sentence and took up residence in Chilliwack.
