death penalty

Like Tree141Likes

I'm admittedly simple minded. If his semen is in the girl, he should die. Let his family choose the labs (10 or 100) that does the tests. If it's his semen, he should die. That won't deter other people but it will certainly deter him. If it's not his, then put him in prison for life because of the child porno.

Until he dies - whether a needle or natural causes -, the victims' family will be paying for his housing, health care, education if he wants, food, legal fees and whatever else he wants through their taxes.

You can't fix a pedophile.

Are you saying that this guy should have no punishment for what he did - if he's guilty?

I would like to add that there are people sitting on death row who either confessed or were found guilty, but it was proven later that they were innocent of the crime. The Dixmoor 5 and The Central Park Rape cases comes to mind. Thank goodness for the Innocence Project and programs like it.

And don't forget the West Memphis 3, whose convictions (including one sentenced to death) were based on coerced confessions.

I don't get what people are saying about how, since murder is bad, we can do anything to murderers and still be good people. We can let them die of pneumonia. We can torture them with solitary confinement. We can eat sandwiches in front of them while they starve. We can do all this and more, however cruel or depraved, and still be good people.

I dunno. I prefer to focus less on what murderers deserve, and more on my own conduct.

I don't think child porn deserves life in prison, as troubling as it is. There are also a lot of issues now with the internet as to whether people went to those sites or someone else used their computer, whether they intended to download that, not to mention where you draw the line at art vs. porn, etc. etc. etc.

As to the victim's family housing him, we ALL house everyone in prison. It is a responsibility of tax payers, just like we all educate each other, pay for each other's health care, social assistance etc. Incarcerating people is very expensive. If this is really a concern, we should be locking up less people, using community sentencing and restorative justice whenever possible, and saving incarceration for the worst cases (like this guy) - then it would cost us less. The victim's family aren't personally housing anyone. They are not a party to this - it is the state that prosecutes.

Also, even when people get the death penalty, they still have to be housed for years to run through all the appeals, etc. so it's not like they'll be saved those expenses by killing him.

Inmates at least in CA get way too many privileges. In fact they get a lot more than a lot of working citizens who have no violent criminal history. It's disgusting!

Plus, again, it shows humanity to treat them as human beings, and may help to rehabilitate some. If there were more programming in institutions perhaps more people would turn their lives around.

If someone confesses to a particularly heinous crime and there is compelling evidence (eye witnesses & DNA together for example) I don't think the person should have contact with any other humans (I don't care if the mind decays). Frankly, I wouldn't care if he (or she) was waterboarded every day of his life. I don't care if I seem bloodthirsty or vengeful when it comes to certain types of criminals; for everyone else I am softhearted to a fault.

I was molested when I was 8 and had a rape attempt when I was 20. I would be delighted if both men died a slow death screaming in pain.

ETA: Reiterating what I said in earlier post, I don't support DP because innocent people get killed. Unless there is some way to never make a mistake, I am against it.

We also haven't touched on the fact that this man may have a mental illness. Surely people aren't in favour of executing the mentally ill who cannot control their actions?

And for those concerned about housing and educating and treating prisoners - in many cases, given the socioeconomic and racial disparities in who is incarcerated, if we had invested more in their housing, education and medical care when they were younger, many people might not be costing us money as inmates today.

I agree with Amneris. I mean, I understand wanting to harm someone who has committed a heinous act, but as A said, where is our humanity in all this? Two wrongs don't make a right and all that. Amneris already said it better than I ever could.

If he is guilty he should be locked up for life without parole.

Got it.....so if this guy is guilty, then we put him away in comfortable (convenient?) surroundings so that he doesn't feel less human because he raped a 10 year old and killed her mother? We essentially say to him, "you did a bad thing so you have to stay here until we feel that you won't do that bad thing again. Let us know what we can do to keep you feeling as human as possible. If it's too cold or too hot or if your food isn't prepared to your satisfaction, let us know because we want to show that we're humane".

To some of the other comments - its not that some of these people are mentally ill and can't control their actions, its all of them. Any person who rapes a child is NOT mentally okay, and because they do it over and over again, they clearly can't control it. Besides, I'm not entrusting a person who has these thoughts and feelings but is under an obligation to 'control' them. Thats crap.

And no I do not have humanity in this situation and I do not feel bad if they are harmed in prison.

Child rapists are cockroaches. I don't consider them human beings. Those people who sell their kids into sex slavery? Same deal. I just don't give a ****. And I'd have no remorse.
