    My gosh! So sorry to hear about that.

    But death would have been the only absolute way of knowing he would never ever harm another innocent child. As harsh as it may seem we don't try to treat a dog with rabies.

    I don't see why we can't just lock them away for the rest of their lives? What's wrong with that? Taxpayer dollars pay to execute someone you know.

    Tax dollars shouldn't be necessary for execution.

    Well, the reality is that they are, and so are all the appeals and anything else. Besides, killing them is sometimes giving them the easy way out.

    I also think that prison life should be a lot more unpleasant than it is though. Prisoners should have to work, perhaps doing the jobs that people claim illegal immigrants do now. I have LOTS of ideas.

    The reality is that we could fix the problem of wasting money to put them down. Slavery, making them earn above what it costs to keep them alive and monitored, is one of the few arguments suggesting benefit of sparing them.

    The rapist must be brought before his/her maker to dole out the ultimate justice. Implementing the death penalty is merely a means to expedite the process.

    Re: Death penalty for rapist and pedophiles?

    I'll be very honest with y'all :

    I'm 58. It caused me to be "frigid" ~ unable to achieve orgasm, until just earlier this year,
    when I discovered that I could just relax, and ENJOY it,
    instead of ... striving to reach the goal.

    It DIDN'T "ruin" me, in any way, shape or form,
    other than that most folks thinking that my trusting in, and loving, others is some weird way of being.

    God didn't give me more than the SPIRIT He gave me could handle.

    It took me a LONG time, but He GAVE me a long time. lol

    Re: Death penalty for rapist and pedophiles?

    That is NOT to say that I don't hurt and cry, also, over a baby being raped;

    it IS to say that I know it's a vicious cycle,
    where pain becomes pleasure,
    and the only way to go over is to over do.

    We're trapped in a world that thinks that :

    YOU hurt ME,

    so now, instead of me trying to RIGHT the wrong I've felt,
    it's so much easier to propagate it,

    AND, it suits my warped passions.
