Half America Would Be On Death Row

Angry politicians vowed to keep writing laws that condemn child rapists to
death, despite a Supreme Court decision saying such punishment is

"Anybody in the country who cares about children should be outraged that we have
a Supreme Court that would issue a decision like this," said Alabama Attorney
General Troy King, a Republican. The justices, he said, are "creating a
situation where the country is a less safe place to grow up."

The court's 5-4 decision Wednesday derailed the efforts of nearly a dozen states
supporting the right to kill those convicted of raping a child — and said
execution was confined to attacks that take a life and to other crimes including
treason and espionage.

: If it were up to many in the Republican party, half our population would be on death row and the other half would be fighting in some war the "R" leaders had created.

I know this is a big over-exaggeration but you have to ask yourself... what is wrong with these people?? They must have such pampered lives, they can't see society for the people. There are many appalling occurrences in this life and we all wished we could find a remedy to cure these societal ills. But when it comes to human brains one size does not fit all. Many brains take a beating before an individual reaches maturity. Some can be helped while others cannot. So we do wind up with macabre crimes. If the laws of the land put all such brain damaged people on death row they would have to build umpteen death rows. I believe putting one to death does not stop such horrible acts and only sets an example that killing is an answer. What's wrong with life in prison without the possibility of parole? And it is cost effective because it takes so much time and money before execution finally occurs that the life sentence is far cheaper. (for those who keep touting LIFE SENTENCE COST US TAXPAYERS TOO MUCH MOOLAH, KILL THE BUM!)

Since capital punishment is a fact of life in this brutal society, the Supreme Court must weigh what crimes it should be slated for. They are correct to only reserve it for homicide. If it started to pertain to crimes not involving a dead body, soon we would be on a giant slide backwards and they would start hanging hungry little kids for stealing an apple. Just as they did in days gone by. A grownup would have to pull on their legs because their bodies would be too light to choke the life out of their short existence. Is that the sort of society these people who want blood for all crimes the sick amongst us commit, really desire? If so, they are big time contributors to the ills we face today...
