::Child Rapist Cannot Be Executed::
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 Wednesday that child rapists cannot be executed, concluding capital punishment is reserved for murderers.
Patrick Kennedy was sentence to death in 2003 for rapping his 8 year old step-daughter in Louisiana.
The Supreme Court reserve capital punishment for murder only.
Patrick would have been the first since 1964 to be put to death for a crime in which the victim did not die.
Florida, Montana, Oklahoma and South Carolina have death-penalty laws for rape, but have not applied them in decades. Texas enacted a version a year ago, but no defendant has been designated death-eligible for child rape in any state but Louisiana.
I have to agree with the Supreme Court for this one.
I believe in justice, however death for rape is a little over board.
Not that rapist should not face a harsh sentence, I just believe death should be reserved for those who have killed.
Although his step-daughter will struggle growing up and face many emotional challenges, it is still possible for her to recover and live a normal and successful life.
I hope he rots on death row and every thing possible is shoved right up his sick ass as he watches his pittiful worth of existance whither away, rot in jail then hell you disgusting fuck.
i hope they make you suffer before they put you down like a big nasty fucking dog i hope your beggin fvor death by the time they get to you, and it should absolutely be punishable by death that girl might be consious but shes dead inside and i will pray for her as i pray he gets passed around like a joint.
they should de-dick him before he goes to the chair just cut it the fuck off startin at his nuts.
