    Some of us oppose a death penalty for any reason.

    Some of us endorse a death penalty for some reasons.

    It is a given that there is no "cure" for pedophilia.

    So, the question is:

    Do you support the option, in your state's criminal law, of the possibility of the imposition of a death penalty for pedophiles?


    EDIT: I voted "yes." I am not a particularly strong proponent of the death penalty in general, but for the protection of society, that option needs to be on the table for pedophiles, imho.

    I voted no on the assumption that you did not mean in the case of a child dying. I do believe long jails sentences and chemical castration should be required.

    In cases of long jail terms I would require:

    1- removal of thumbs...that way they cannot grab hold of anyone efficiently ever again.

    2- removal of tongue...so they can no longer seduce with their voice or words.

    3 psychical castration.

    And optional depending of what they did, Cutting them off at the knees...so they will always have a child's perspective of how threatening an adult looks towering over them.

    I oppose the death penalty, so I had to vote no.

    I assume you meant perspective, and sorry I believe in the Constitutional ban against cruel and unusual punishment.

    What I find most odd about your stance is that you are perfectly ok with all forms of child abuse except for sexual abuse.
