But you don't have to taint your own mind by committing torture and letting out your own obvious bloodlust. I know things like this can make you angry, but keep your composure and don't become a sadistic b*stard like him, otherwise eventually everyone will just have a sadistic mind.
Originally posted by gnosis111 Not only has this poor child suffered such trauma, her only family left is her father and brother. And her father is dying of cancer and her brother is a felon, who I think may still be in prison. So what scares me is what will happen to her in the long run.

He is NOT innocent. He does NOT deserve humane treatment. He gave up that right the minute he violated an innocent person (child).
Sitting in prison cell with : porn, outside communication whith whomever, food, bed, clothing, etc etc. all by himself with 100% proection from other inmates...................is NOT JUST punishment for what he has done.

when dealing with this type of person, seagul and others are right to caution about becomeing what we are trying to stop, however there are times, like with this guy, that recompence is called for,, there have been a lot of good ideas on how to deal with this guy.. but there also has to be a proper blend of common sense and sense of justice, this guy deserves to be tortured and killed the way he did. but does that make it ok for us to do so, a very fustrating conundrm. i think that there are times where the payment for a crime justifies what has been suggested on this thread, we cannot clump all crimes in the same boat, somtimes compassion is deserved and somtimes it isnt. u know let the punnishment fit the crime..
i say execute him and let the father have the choice to filp the switch himself

Sorry but we don't live in an ideal world, as much as we would like to. Things like that would wake up even emotionally dead people, and with red-blooded (and horrified) fathers of young children on this board... Forget warm and fuzzy feelings. These are not sadists because they don't have inclination to do that just because - like that bastard did. It's just a desperate, and impossible, attempt to get even. And that's human.

Well, how about the possibility that some sort of hideous execution, made public, would act as a deterrent to other potential deviants? That was the whole rationale behind ancient forms of torture such as crucifixion and the like; a warning to others that may contemplate the same course of action.
Granted, some are so depraved that nothing will sway them from their deviance but if it did dissuade one potential psycho, wouldn’t it be worth it?
