Court bans death penalty for child rape

Go out of the country for a few days and things like this make me wonder what kind of sick idiots have taken over my country.

So, stealing information for another country, which is rarely punished, is considered worse than raping a child? Stupidity like this makes me wonder if Liberals might make rape legal someday, just because sex is fun.

Court bans death penalty for child rape - Yahoo! News: "The court's 5-4 decision struck down a Louisiana law that allows capital punishment for people convicted of raping children under 12. It spares the only people in the U.S. under sentence of death for that crime — two Louisiana men convicted of raping girls 5 and 8.

The ruling also invalidates laws on the books in five other states that allowed executions for child rape that does not result in the death of the victim.

However devastating the crime to children, Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote in his majority opinion, 'the death penalty is not a proportional punishment for the rape of a child.' His four liberal colleagues joined him, while the four more conservative justices dissented."
