In light of this horrific case its time we in America re-instituted the death sentence for the crime of rape, particularly of a child - no matter the age or sex of the child.

Its been forty four years since the state of Missouri put Ronald Wolfe to death for the crime of rape, and his execution marked the end of an era - one that I am suggesting we should return to. Throughout much of our history as a free nation this justifiable punishment was in force into the mid 1950's. In 1977, a year after the restoration of the death penalty as a constitutional punishment for murder, the U.S. Supreme Court branded death a cruel and unusual pun¬ishment for rape, and strongly suggested that only murder should qualify as a capital crime. “We have the abiding conviction that the death penalty, which is unique in its severity and irrevocability, is an excessive penalty for the rapist who, as such, does not take human life,” wrote liberal Justice Byron White.

But on April 16, the court will reconsider that “abiding conviction” in the case of a convicted child rapist from Louisiana. Kennedy v. Louisiana, No. 07-343.
When Patrick Kennedy, a black man, was sentenced to die for the rape of his 8-year-old stepdaughter, he was the only person on death row in this country for a crime other than murder. In 1995, Louisiana became the first state to restore capital punishment for the rape of a child under 12. Since then, four other states—Montana, Okla¬homa, South Carolina and Texas—have authorized capital punishment for child rape, albeit for a second conviction for sexual assault of a child.

Do you notice the half smile on his face? Perhaps his countenance would change somewhat if he were sentenced to death row.

Anyways... I'm against the death penalty until kids are involved. But my main thing is you have to be able to PROVE guilt. Plenty of rape claims are made against innocent people, this also includes molestation charges. It does happen.

It's a tough spot for sure.

Because according to the GOP platform, that girl shouldn't have a choice over getting rid of that child if she were pregnant.

Because traumatized 11 year old girls should be having babies and then be able to raise them without welfare assistance.

Pack of animals indeed.

I'm with you on this one. The dumb, sick bas****** video taped it on top of everything else they did. (You would think that would be all the evidence you would need.) They should be put down.

8 confessed so far, so as far as I'm concerned case closed.

I vote for public flogging and a long jail sentence.

That's my 2 cents worth.

Six juveniles who were charged also have previously pleaded guilty. They received 7-year prison terms, but their sentences were suspended and they were put on probation for that amount of time


What the hell??

Am I the only one who sees something wrong with this??

Although I am not totally against the death penalty, but these days the death penalty is more or less painless ( lethal injection or gas chamber). With all the suffering that poor little girl had to endure, why not bring back the electric chair and die a slow horrible death?

Or, when charged with rape, why not castrate the sobs and have them rott in a state pen with zero percent chance of parol and let them be raped for the rest of their pathetic lives?

As a mother, I feel people like that should be shot dead on the spot...

Alright rant over, phew...

I'm sure their next victim will disagree with the sentence, too.

Probation is out of line.

Chemical castration. Period.

I have no tolerance for rape, ESPECIALLY against a minor.

Death is too humane of a punishment for them.

I say tie them over a barrel in the showers at the prison 10 hours a day for the rest of their lives.

I'm sure that the prisoners will know what to do from there to make it memorable for them.

they should be hung by their testis just high enough so their toes just touch the ground, giving a false hope of relief.
then thrown in general population, at the prison of their choice with a non removable sign around their necks that says child rapist.
they wouldn't last long.

I think this is the best idea by far. And video tape it and pass it around the internet.

Actually, since she is 11 she is a child. That won't go over too well with the inmates.

These guys are gonna have it coming to them. Which is probably why they put the jeuvaniles on probation, because they , themselves, wouldn't be able to handle the gang rape.

Inmates already have their eyes on Holmes for killing children in the theater. Imagine what will happen to these rapists.

after some residents suggested the girl was in part responsible for what happened, saying she wore makeup, looked older and wasn't properly supervised by her parents.


Are you *ing serious? An 11 year old girl is gangraped by 8 men and it's her fault because she was wearing makeup?

These guys should be fried and so should the idiots who blame the girl for the attack.
