Even pedophiles who have murdered a child do not receive the death penalty nowadays. The sentences they receive here in the US are stricter than what they get abroad, though; did you see that the Dutch one, who had molested 67 children, got a big 18 years?
This needs to be a capital crime again.
Well, no offense but I don't think that's exactly correct. This article covers a Federal Crime where child murders and kidnappings could be involved, and the US Code still includes the DP for murder.
And the FedGov does execute, though not enough IMHO -- a couple days ago I read a short article were the Feds just did it in the Eastern US. I was actually surprised Barry didn't pardon the mutt.
But all that aside. Whatever the legal sentence these maggots get they won't last two days in any Fed Prison. Even John Gotti had to go begging the Aryan BH for protection after one week (iirc) -- at $30K/mo -- when he was in the Supermax in Marion, IL.
The fact is one way or the other these guys will die in prison, and fast. So I'm just (hypothetically) offering my services for 'a legal way' (naturally). After all, contract work is always cheaper than having the 'G' do something themselves.
Although I understand where you are coming from, it is clear that it SHOULD NOT be a capital crime. The reason being that having a punishment one level above whatever they will receive for NOT killing their victims is necessary as a deterrant to keep them from killing their victims. Yes, the destroy lives, but I would rather have my child abused and alive than dead. Read some of the works of Cesare Beccaria for some additional details. The only logic to have them executed rather than locked up for life is that you do not believe that the death penalty is a deterrant. Everything is else is emotion and not justice.
