    The problem with ass raping a pedophile is they would probably enjoy it now emasculating it is a better solution !As for the the gun ruling I have bad feelings predicated on the length of time it has taken .But our second amendment rights will be diluted, big time or a little,that is the issue !

    I don't know if I completely agree with this or not. Seems like the states should be granted broad leeway in sentencing. Look for a lot more "child rape + attempted murder" cases.
    The silencing of the victim argument is a strong one against the DP for rape, but certainly rape+murder or rape+attempted murder should warrant it. I don't see why we reward failed murderers who had the same intent as successful ones. We're only ensuring that they will have the opportunity to perfect their skills.

    It will certainly make life easier for UN Peacekeepers who engage in sex with children. No, wait, those guys were never prosecuted, so it will have no impact on them... Nevermind.

    Have you noticed how much the liberal far left is being driven by the wishes of the 'one world' EU ?They are beginning to be a dictatorial force in American's liberal legal and political circles and the root of many liberal causes !

    The abolition of the DP for minors no matter how heinous the crime is now a fact .Kennedy's and Ginsberg's Supreme Court opinions are riddled with European Union's Jurisprudence.The EU will attempt to impose its will on America through the Liberal left at every opportunity .

    In the past liberals like Tom Hayden at the time clamored for the UN to rule America but liberals of today worship at the alter of the EU!

    The EU'S influence reaches into Americas business on a daily basis with Dictatorial judgements against some of our major corporations doing business in Europe .

    your opinion there just might be a bit off. Barack Obama today in a meeting in Chicago when asked about the decision, said he dsagreed with it. He felt the rape of a child was A HANEOUS CRIME. He was for the death penalty on rape of a young child. Probably ticked the base off but he didn' hesitiate when he answered the reporter's question..

    Here is the link.

    Oh, noes; a politician would not state his opinion to get votes especially a Democrap.

    If the courts will not execute these monstors, they should at least be castarated.

    You make some excellent points. The EU hates the US and is trying to undermine it. This is especially true in the death penalty and the war on terror.

    Now, Europeans are doing more than complain-they are starting to act. More and more European lawyers and human rights groups are filing amicus briefs in U.S. capital cases. European heads of state call governors to plead for clemency for those about to be executed. The EU funds several major anti-death penalty initiatives in the U.S.http://64.233.183.104/search?q=cache...n&ct=clnk&cd=5

    Correct. And I'm guessing that there is an extremely small miority of child rapists that just do it once if they don't get caught. I think it's pretty well documented that these people don't "get better." I don't have a problem with them getting the death penalty, I just question if it's really a deterrent.

    Screw the deterrence - how about not having to feed, clothe and house them with full medical benefits?
    At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)
