Exactly if they are so ill and caused so much pain then why not just eliminate them from society. Paedophiles and rapists typically have deep seated psychological problems, is there any real hope for rehabilitation? Why can't we have faith in our system, one trial with the opportunity for one appeal. If both find you guilty and condemned to death then walk them out of the courthouse put a gun to the back of the brain stem and problem solved.
