    I have heard that all my life and you are far from the first to say it here. There is a huge difference between rape and murder and I don't believe 99% of rapist are murderers. If a rapist knows he will get the death penalty for rape and murders his victim to cover up the crime he was likely intending to kill her anyway. Most potential rapist knowing they would be put to death if they raped would likely not commit the rape if they had to cross the line of murder in order to avoid being caught. This is all just my opinion of course and I have no stats to back it up because as far as I know no country has ever tried this type of law. This may get me in trouble but there is an ancient urge in men to rape. At one time a man saw a woman that aroused him and he did what came natural whether she was willing or not just like some animals do. Murder on the other hand seems to be something man as a rule shy's away from and crosses a line most people instinctively don't want to cross.

    I realize those things, however killing someone who has not killed, is not justice. Justice implies a balancing of the scales, and society killing them would be unjust. As I said earlier, if it were me walking in on someone molesting my own child or grandchild, I'd shoot them without hesitation, but as a societal policy and action, I could not support it.

    ....So jail is a reward? All the people we have in prison are living the High Life, huh? Or was this an incredibly stupid statement? Because it seems like it's likely the latter.

    The damage done to a child is often quite worse than death, as they have to deal with it their whole lives. Kill the sick bastards that do it, one shot, one kill, no other children harmed by them.

    They are are an obvious danger to our children, much more so than any other stylish defined danger of today like a soft drink, and need to be eliminated.

    What are the great and dynamic contributions to society by pedophiles? What justifies their existence within society? Why pay a life time of room and board to assure they eventually get released to create more mischief?
    Thanks Lovejoy, but even in all the "Won't someone PLEASE think of the children" hysteria going on here, we still must think about the institutions and penalties we call into action and the consequences for having done so.

    Paying a lifetime of room and board is cheaper than killing them, if you can prove that they need to be in jail for life then there you go. Already a punishment on the books which will take these people off the streets for good without calling on a system that innately consumes lives, where innocents can be killed, which costs way more money, and has at best dubious moral implications.

    If it met the standards of what justice actually is, I could go with it, but it doesn't.

    I truly believe that physical or chemical castration is the way to go.

    No future possiblity (via rape or consensual) of repeat acts (though one can rape by other means, agreed) nor personal pleasure for themselves.

    Let them live with that.
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.
