    Re: Death penalty for rapist and pedophiles?

    simple solution....pedophiles need to know there is no more segregating them in prison...

    if you are a pedophile you have to serve your entire time in the general population...

    let them know the fear they dealt to the kid they raped and tortued...
    why protect them

    So if a woman is jogging down the street and a rapist drags her into the bushes, holds a knife to her throat and rapes her you would equate that to a woman that goes into a dorm room with a bunch of guys and takes drugs and drinks until she passes out? Both those women are just the same?

    That's so sad. There are some evil people in the world but you're a survivor.

    You referenced God and one thing I hope people would consider is God isn't the one "giving" horrible events to people. The Bible makes it clear that God rescues us from evil, not causes it but "only up to we can handle." I know this thread isn't about whether or not God is responsible for evil and maybe we'll do another thread in the appropriate category. Just wanted to weigh in on something you said. Hang in there.

    PS. You have a bigger heart than me. I would have wanted the perpetrator slowly and painfully tortured to death.

    Because otherwise, we are siding with predatory rapists. We might think the molester deserves it; but we don't want to side with predatory rapists under any circumstances.

    The crime is the same. We are prosecuting the crime, not the woman. That's what you don't understand.

    Re: Death penalty for rapist and pedophiles?

    As much as I support the Death Penalty, I think it should only be used for general crimes when it is in response to the death of somebody.

    Yes, rape and sexual assaults are horrible, but the victim continues to live. LWOP I do/would support, but not capitol punishment for these crimes.

    I also would not throw them in GenPop as some here have endorsed. That would be in essence passing the execution off onto the other inmates.

    Also, I don't support the death penalty in the United States as it isn't necessary to keep the public safe. Our justice system should not be concerned with taking revenge out on people.
    I am not sure if it will deter others, but it certainly prevents the executed person from repeating the crime.

    Yes, the death penalty has had a dramatic effect on capital crimes like murder

    Then they are executed for murder with special circumstance, not for rape.

    Well, you have to agree that they never kill again.

    One thing a lot of people fail to realize, is that a lot of murders occur inside of prison. Jeffrey Dahmer was murdered by somebody who was himself in jail for multiple murders. A lot of prisoners are locked up for non-violent crimes, or crimes of a much lesser nature. Is it really fair to lock them up with somebody who knows that they will never leave prison alive, so has nothing left to loose?

    So yes, the death penalty does have a strong impact. Because people on death row are so isolated that murders there are almost unheard of.
