Why do even tough criminals hate child molesters?

They are still serving time in prison for committing other crimes (ex: burglary, being a fraudster, beating a man at a bar fight to death, etc) but even so hate child molesters the most.

At times a child molester/rapist either ends up beaten to death or injured by the other immates. Why are they hated the most even in prisons...more than other criminals?

    Most people like children, have a soft spot for them, because Mother Nature instills in human beings (even animals) a protective attitude towards children, for the sake of the survival of the species. It's the rare human being who doesn't feel it.

    That's why.

    Criminals love to pick on others because they are so low themselves. Gives them a boost.

    while child molestation is terrible, murder is worse. a molested child can get therapy and go on to live somewhat of a life. a dead person, is, well , dead. no hope. criminals need to feel superior to someone, and have a pecking order in prison, so the child molester becomes their victim.

    They are considered by other Criminals to be the lowest of the low

    Even lower than Supergrasses

    Being bad is one thing, they know what they are in for

    A lot of people in jail would tell you they have been misunderstood

    With Child Molesters there is just no understanding

    They are just considered pure evil

    When you have seen the results of their crimes you would understand

    Many criminals see pedophiles as the lowest of the low. They pick on innocent and vulnerable children. Many prisoners have children, all were children at one time. These pedophiles have no sympathy and empathy for the children.

    Because nobody wants to be seen as the worst.
