"...no matter how young the child, no matter how many times the child is raped, no matter how many children the perpetrator rapes, no matter how sadistic the crime, no matter how much physical or psychological trauma is inflicted and no matter how heinous the perpetrator's criminal record may be."---a portion of Justice Alito's dissent
I'm still shaking my head at the latest Supreme Court ruling. Yesterday, the liberals on the Court decided that it was "cruel and unusual punishment" to execute child rapists. I can't fathom the logic here. When someone rapes and tortures a child they damage their soul. I cannot conceive of a worse crime, murder is a lesser offense in my eyes. A child will have to live with the scars the rest of their lives. The specific case that was before the court was horrific, if you can stomach the details, go here! Yet, Anthony Kennedy and the 4 other liberals on the court think that a painless execution is disproportional to the crime.
Who would be rejoicing over this ruling? The rapists and their lawyers. Who rejoiced over the Gitmo ruling that was made last week? The terrorists. Somehow, liberals always seem to misplace their sympathy. They think its okay to kill innocent babies in the womb but child rapists shouldn't be executed. Does that make sense to you? It doesn't to me either!!
