It is blood thirsty because you want someone else to be killed to provide you with comfort. You are asking for more death.
WASHINGTON — The death penalty is unconstitutional as a punishment for the rape of a child, a sharply divided Supreme Court ruled Wednesday. Related Justices to Decide if Rape of a Child Merits Death The 5-to-4 decision overturned death penalty laws in Louisiana and five other states. The only two men in the country who have been sentenced to death for the crime of child rape, both in Louisiana, will receive new sentences of life without parole.
Because there really is no capital punishment. If you commit a crime, are convicted, and sent to "death row," you're going to sit there for 20 years waiting for your endless appeals to run out. A man or woman on death row is more likely to die of old age than lethal injection.
