    Rape would have to be broken down into degrees like murder is. First degree rape where a woman is jogging one minute and being raped in the bushes the next minute or when a woman is sleeping in her bed and someone breaks in and rapes her at knife point would be first degree aggravated rape and be punishable by death.

You want to fry em that's fine, but as far as I am concerned you better have rock solid INDISPUTABLE evidence of guilt, without which you can fugetaboutit.
    I for one do favor the death penalty but ONLY in cases in which the jury thinks it was done beyond a shadow of doubt.

    I personally don't support it; but if I did, I think only those convicted under DNA evidence should be killed.

    Don't some DP states already have such a provision, or am I mistaken?

    Or for mistaken/misidentification charges. Which is why it should apply where there can be no mistake of the person doing the deed.

    Re: Death penalty for rapist and pedophiles?

    As I posted I believe that the death penalty should apply to convictions that the jury is convinced the accused is guilty is beyond of the shadow of a doubt . That being said I beileve that a point system may also be a good way to apply the death penanty with serious crimes getting more points and lesser violent crimes lesser points and if they get sufficient points they can be executed.

    Why stop there? The incidents of every crime would plummet if we just attached the death penalty to them!

    Re: Death penalty for rapist and pedophiles?

    I was kidnapped and molested, as a child, and though it DID make a difference in my life,

    I know now that God didn't give me more than I could handle.

    Even back then, I wouldn't have desired DEATH for the man;
    he, himself, was damaged and deluded.

    And as liberal as this sounds, I'd want HIM to have access to loving/caring help and support,
    rather than throwing him into another hell on earth.

    Like what? And how would you know? Have YOU ever been dead before? I don't think you can measure that.
