    Death penalty for rapist and pedophiles?

    Pedophiles don't get better and they have devastated a child's life not to mention devastating the entire family. Rapist have violated a womans rights in the most despicable fashion possible and scarred her for life. The impact of these crimes on children, their parents and women are so grievous that IMO the perpetrates should get the death penalty. Not only would this be justice but the incidents of rape and child molesting-rape would plummet.

    I am against the death penalty in general and would not endorse it here.

    No death penalty for anyone. Life in prison without parole for child rapists, just like for murderers.

    Sorry there is no poll, I pushed back button to create a third option, life without parole and the thread posted.

    They would not budge an inch. Deterrence does not work on pathological crimes.

    When you say things like "the incidents of rape and child molesting-rape would plummet", you need to back that up with research.

    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.

    But according to you in this scenario, the girl was partly to blame for her own rape...

    So I mean... would you execute those boys?

    Or maybe just a caning for them and a slap on the wrist for her because you know... it was partially her fault?

    Or is it as usual you haven't fully thought out your position at all...

    I would want to know the particulars before making any sort of blanket statement.

    Our system of justice is predicated upon an understanding of intent, the egregiousness of the act in question and so many other factors as to make any sort of one-size-fits-all doctrine impossible.

    We should just sub-contract our prison management to firms from Turkey. Americans need not apply.

    For a second I thought the title was "Death Penalty for apdst..." I've had my tussles with him, but I think that's a bit excessive

    At what point is said death penalty enforced? Only when a crime is committed, or should we pre-emptively kill anyone who is sexually attracted to children? The whole point is to protect people right?

    I'm going to have to be against it, because it assumes recidivism. We don't do that for any other crime.
