    Death for some sex offenders OK'd in S.C.

    By SEANNA ADCOX, Associated Press Writer 53 minutes ago

    COLUMBIA, S.C. - The South Carolina House on Wednesday passed a pair of bills that would allow prosecutors to seek the death penalty for some repeat child molesters.

    Support for the package picked up steam after a man was charged with kidnapping two girls and raping them in a dungeon behind his home earlier this year.

    The related measures could send to death row offenders convicted twice of raping a child younger than 11.

    About freakin time people made sense with the child rape laws. Under 11 and you RAPE the child, you die. Nothing more, nothing less.
