The U.S Supreme Court is considering it we should allow the death penalty when the crime is child rape. Since I'm not a supporter of the death penalty for any crime, considering expanding its use for child rape seems wrong.
The U.S. Supreme Court this week hears arguments about whether the death penalty can be imposed for child rape, taking up for the first time in more than 30 years whether a crime other than murder can be punished by execution.
The nation's highest court has set arguments on Wednesday on whether the death penalty for the crime of raping a child represents unconstitutionally cruel and unusual punishment.
A long hard prison sentence in the general population is the answer.
