Angry Politicians Call SCOTUS Child Rapists Ruling Absurd, Vow to Execute Child Rapists


Who is looking out for the children … obviously not the US Supreme Court.

Earlier this week, the US Supreme Court ruled 5–4 that child rapists cannot be executed stating that such punishment “cruel and unusual” and is unconstitutional. Obviously those that voted in the majority on the SCOTUS must believe that child rape in nor cruel and unusual in its own right. How else could one determine that the punishment against child rape of the death penalty is not proportionate to the crime?


Angry politicians vowed to keep writing laws that condemn child rapists to death, despite a Supreme Court decision saying such punishment is unconstitutional.
“Anybody in the country who cares about children should be outraged that we have a Supreme Court that would issue a decision like this,” said Alabama Attorney General Troy King, a Republican. The justices, he said, are “creating a situation where the country is a less safe place to grow up.” (Yahoo News)

A battle seems to be certainly brewing between the SCOTUS and lawmakers. The idea that criminals are granted rights and escape the ultimate punishment is utterly disgusting. The fact that the heinous act of raping a child,  the most innocent among us is not looked upon as murder is absurd. What does the SCOTUS think that the rapist is doing to the child, but murdering their future? Instead, liberal justices make excuses for child rapists.

In his majority opinion, Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote “the death penalty is not a proportional punishment for the rape of a child,” despite the horrendous nature of the crime.

Republican Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal called the ruling “incredibly absurd,” “a clear abuse of judicial authority” and said officials will “evaluate ways to amend our statute to maintain death as a penalty for this horrific crime.”

      Guess I have not learned my lesson replying to this topic.

      Male forced rape of a child under a given and estabished age I can see death penalty, but not automatic. I think it not being automatic can help with the release of child hostages in some cases. ALso, let us allow for some bazzar case we cannot from here forecast. As a 3 time juror on criminal trials (2 to jury sentencing), I like letting juries have strong rule…and it not amended by a judge.

      And I concern for one law for both sexes. Not good at all, not in the least. Beginning say about 8 or 9 years of age I had a female doing activities with me. I do not think this is a damaging — to me, no way. I have had a terrific life. NO tendencies to sexually abuse others, and yes I have had that concern and wonderment but it did not effect me that way. Now I have always cared more about females, grown ones, willing ones, than other males. Not sure there is a connection, maybe more connected to my extreme creativity side. As a warrior I have readily admitted a females like thing on the mind, sort of simi sexually connected thing….might be common for guys through all of history? Was a high risk taker in life. But…I just do not think I was damaged.

      I agree with you that no such penalty should be automatic. The notion of automatic penalties bothers me; I understand that people are angry with the way some criminals seem to get off with minimal penalties (this has been the case with sentences in Vermont, among others), but there are a lot of dangers in imposing set sentences.

      I’m not saying that the death penalty is wrong here … I’m just saying that I would not support its being automatic. One concern, as I posted before, is that if an animal who carried out such a crime knew that he was going to be executed, then perhaps that would provide more incentive for him (or her) to kill the child.

      No. 1 … I don’t know, and won’t enquire, as to what those “things” were that the female did with you … but if you were age 7 or 8, and she was an adult, then legally it might have been statutory rape.
