Then don't put him in a prison where there are low risk non violent offenders. Keep him in a prison cell all day, no activities, no yard time, no
human contact. I do agree with one of the other posters though, we should have forced labor for rapist and murderers.
I'm selecting that quote specifically because the points that come after we just disagree on so strongly, argument is all that is left, not debate.
I feel that when someone takes the life of another outside of legal necessity or war, their own life SHOULD, normally, be forfeit. Exceptions
exist...which is the only reason I'm even that flexible in how I say it.
Having said that.... On the first part and the quite, I'll say we probably agree in many areas on this. My own attitude about the Death Penalty would
be a bit different if, perhaps, your suggestion were a viable one in the U.S. I'll ALWAYS support the Death Penalty and people like this thread is
about are why that support will never falter in principle. How WIDELY it's used for what crimes..now that is where your suggestion would change
IF we had a 3 tier system, it might work.
* Tier 1 for the non-violent first timers where rehab is 100% the focus and it's still worth trying. Both kids and Adults ought to have a level 1 to
go into when violence wasn't involved and a history of criminal activity doesn't exist.
* Tier 2 for the vast majority of our Prison population that is criminal, no question...but not cold predators or animals. They screwed up..or spent
real time going down the wrong path..but WILL get out some day, and so need treated with that fact in mind, if nothing else.
* Tier 3 for the Animals. The TRUE Human predators, sociopaths and outright psychopaths. Serial Killers...Cop Killers..Child Molesters (I don't
support anything short of LWOP on that crime anyway).
Never the three shall cross, overlap or meet. Let alone live among each other in the same cell blocks and on the same yards. It would change the
prison system from Criminal College or full blown University to a place with different levels for different people...and noobs in for the first trip
don't come out hard, cold and lethal predators.
Failing that... Well. Tier 3 is Death in my mind..and if we can reform this system for what PROOF is required (Much higher bar) for death, I don't
see any real issue while looking at the Mutt this thread is about. Not even a small one. In THIS animal's case, proof isn't even a relevent issue.
He's good for it...and he should die for it. Just like that very elderly lady did...after he mercilessly raped her.
