The Supreme Count Rules on the Child Rapist

The Supreme Court yesterday rejected an appeal that would have allowed a 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 rationale, wouldn’t a proportional punishment be that we take a broomstick 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.
