I think death is too strong a punishment for the crime. I don't think the homeowner should be charged but he should be ashamed. I bet the sex offender got caught taking a leak in an alley. Maybe he was lost. Maybe he was going to rape. His crime was trespassing. You can't deal a death penalty until they commit the crime. I know it seems wrong but it is just.

Once convicted of raping a child that persons' life should be forfeited. Violent sex offenders; should be ended.
Violent sex offenders have shown consistently that they repeat their crimes, even after extensive prison time. Perhaps if we put all our smarts and resources together we could create a successful rehabilitative process for them. That's not the case. As of present these violent sex offenders repeat repeat and repeat. The only options right now is to put them in prison for life or end their life. Or.... they get out and rape your daughter, with a knife in hand.
I agree with your statement, what is known about sex offenders is that rape/assault is NOT about sex, it is about control, how do you "fix" that? I don't believe we can at this time, maybe in the future but not now.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The Marion County prosecutor will not file charges against a father who killed an intruder.

The guy totally deserved it.
Good for the father.
I wonder how this case would have gone differently if the offender was an illegal alien?

Don't buy into the PC hype that "it has nothing to do with sex". If their balls are whacked off they are MUCH MUCH less likely to reoffend. It DOES work but it would not be politically correct to use it.

Some people simply don't believe in retribution, violence, or killing (even when seemingly justified.) I'm one of those people.
I respect the views of those who would do what this man did in this scenario, and I respect the man who killed the intruder as well, but I disagree with them. I simply don't believe in violence or killing, no matter how sick, twisted, or dangerous the potential target of said violence or killing may be.
That's just my belief, and I'm not the only person on the planet who holds it. I respect everyone's views, and I don't judge or blame those who do commit violence (even violence resulting in death) in these sorts of situations. I'm not them, and can't judge them for what they felt was right in an incredibly bad situation.
It's just not what I would do myself. I know that's not popular. So be it. I would like it if people could be respectful and tolerant of those who hold such views though.
