I firmly belive that rape should be a Capitol crime, these boys need an execution.
“I firmly belive that rape should be a Capitol crime, these boys need an execution.”
Rape of a child under 10 years of age was a capital crime in Louisiana up until recently. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kennedy_v._Louisiana That statute was struck down by the United States Supreme Court.
I wonder when and by what hand the United States Supreme Court will be struck down.
Growing up in the 1950s in West Virginia, I remember that rape was a capital crime.
When I was living in southern Chester County, Pa in the 1980s, a local woman was raped. IIRC,when the perp was identified and I believe out on bail, he was visited at night by 2-3 men in hoods and castrated.
As satisfying as that sounds, it’s a terrible idea. Make rape a capital crime and you may have fewer rapes, but you’ll have more murders. Why would a rapist allow his victim the chance to identify and testify against him? If the punishment for him is the same whether she lives or dies, you’ve given him more reason to kill her than to let her live.

I agree. Under certain circumstances, rapists should be executed. However, it would have to be clear cut (the rape evidence, not the execution). I’d hate for someone to be executed for a so-called date rape, where it comes down to the word of the victim alone. Even physical evidence, i.e. DNA and tissue tearing, aren’t absolute proof a rape occurred. I think cases like this where the rapists are gloating on video should be sufficient evidence for the death penalty.
violent rape of a stranger should certainly be punishable by death.
date rape with no violence involved where it’s purely a he said she said situation.. I don’t feel comfortable with death.
