Liberal M*ther F*ckers!

Supreme Court rejects death for child rape

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday struck down a state law that allows the execution of people convicted of a raping a child.

In a 5-4 vote, the court said the law allowing the death penalty to be imposed in cases of child rape violates the U.S. Constitution's ban on cruel and unusual punishment.

"The death penalty is not a proportional punishment for the rape of a child," Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote in his majority opinion. His four liberal colleagues joined him, while the four more conservative justices dissented.

There has not been an execution in the United States for a crime that did not also involve the death of the victim in 44 years.

Patrick Kennedy, 43, was sentenced to death for the rape of his 8-year-old stepdaughter in Louisiana. He is one of two people in the United States, both in Louisiana, who have been condemned to death for a rape that was not also accompanied by a killing.

The Supreme Court banned executions for rape in 1977 in a case in which the victim was an adult woman.

Forty-five states ban the death penalty for any kind of rape, and the other five states allow it for child rapists. Montana, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Texas allow executions in such cases if the defendant had previously been convicted of raping a child.

The court struggled over how to apply standards laid out in decisions barring executions for the mentally retarded and people younger than 18 when they committed murder. In those cases, the court cited trends in the states away from capital punishment.

ambergirl sperm just hit the egg
that's sick. And horrible, just lets rapist know as long as they aren't in those other states they won't die if they get caught. I think it would detour people from raping if it might end in their death.

Death should be there punishment. They do worse to the children they rape!!
Before they kill the bastards they need to let the family of the child have them for 24 hours. And let the parents do whatever they want to do to the bastards that hurt their babies.

It's good to know that Obama disagrees with this decision. He's not as liberal as some think.
I have to disagree with those who say this guy should be handed over to the parents of this poor child. No matter how much he suffers-it won't change a thing. Revenge is not all it's cracked up to be. It's much better to execute this bastard and make certain he will never be able to do it again.

Even if they don't get the death penalty in court, they get it in the form of death by splinters of a broom handle up the ass in prison... Let them suffer a short life and die in prison.

Instant death would be too good.

It is inhumane, but torture, salt the wounds, the beat with a wip, add more salt. Castrate them, put their nuts in their mouth, gag them. Add more salt.
Stick red hot branding pokers up their ass. Rinse with alcohol, and repeat every thing over till they die.

Children cannot defend themselves.

The crimes punishment could never be enough.
