The Supreme Count Rules on the Child Rapist

The Supreme Court yesterday rejected an appeal that would have allowed child rapist to be put to death. I was a little surprised to find out that this was even a case that they were hearing. I thought it had already been established that a person could only be put to death in murder cases. The court found that, "The death penalty is not a proportional punishment for the rape of a child." Well yeah! But by that rational, wouldn’t a proportional punishment be that we take a broom stick and shove it up the rapist ass?

If you were wondering how the vote weighed out, it was 5 to 4, the liberal side with the 5 and the conservatives with the 4. It’s nice to see that a judges political leanings has no effect on the judiciary system.

I guess what really matters here is how big the broom stick is and how far up his they shove it.

For raping a child, the broom stick should have a 12 inch circumfrence and shoved up so high it blocks his airway.

I’m down with that. If I remember correctly, the case came from Louisiana, where they sentenced a couple guys to death for raping a 5 and 8 year girls. Looking at it from that point of view, if I had a 5 year old daughter that was raped, I wouldn’t want the guy just dead. I’d want him to die by cutting his nuts off to slowly bleed to death.
