I'm sure you won't agree with me that it was a good ruling, but basically they said that child rapists couldn't be put to death. If anyone deserves to be put to death at the hands of the state, it's child rapists, but I don't believe anyone does, so a ruling that prevents that is a good one, as far as I'm concerned. In the majority decision, Kennedy wrote "The death penalty is not a proportional punishment for the rape of a child," which I don't necessarily agree with. I just don't think the state should be executing it's citizens regardless. Anyway, here's a link: http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/ap/tx/5856771.html

Thanks for the link Art! ;-D

You're right, I don't like it. But hear me out, the Texas law made the death penalty available for "repeat" child rapists. They had opportunity to clean up, change their ways, and be responsible citizens after being tried and convicted the first time. They chose not to, so I fully and 100% support the death penalty for repeat child rapists. Raping one child and being convicted once is too much, but more than that is just ridiculous and calls for extreme measures in my eyes.

But we disagree on the death penalty in general, so we'll have to agree to disagree on this one. :-D Again though, thanks for the link! ;-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Well I personally don't believe in the death penalty, but if there was one group that deserves it, it would defiantly be Repeat Child rapists. Thats just awful I have no pity for them.
