    Being denied freedom is rather cruel. Dying may surmount it though. As for benefit to society, there's no difference between life without parole and the death penalty from an aggregate societal perspective. And the DP costs way more money to use, so it's cheaper to throw on in jail for life over state sponsored killings.

    Suicide is death.


    "Rape is a horrible crime. And it effects the victims for the rest of their lives. Depression and post-traumatic stress disorder are common conditions among rape victims.

    Numerous rape victims have suicidal thoughts. Many die by suicide."

    Okay, but I don't see how that justifies the state killing the perpetrator. Didn't mama ever teach you that two wrongs don't make a right?

    I was specifically answering a post that said rape victims don't die, actually they often do.

    Often? I believe the majority of rape victims do NOT commit suicide.

    A woman minding her own business jogging down the street pulled into the bushes, a knife held to her throat and raped is not the same as a woman going to a party taking drugs and drinking and flirting with boys and then passing out. To say different is disrespecting the woman jogging.

    This is a terrible argument Sawyer. You want to kill rapists because a victim of their's may or may not commit suicide? That's stupid as all hell.

    Yes I do. When you decide to rape someone you take one of their most basic rights and as the link I posted earlier says it often leads to depression and suicide. I have never understood why attempted murder gets a much lighter sentence than murder either. To me trying to kill someone and having that person somehow survive should be just the same as killing them.
