Unless I am wildly inaccurate (always a possibility), no one has been executed solely for the crime of child rape in my lifetime, and only two people are even on death row for child rape, both in Louisiana. As such, I find the outrage in certain quarters about today’s decision to be a little perplexing. Nothing really changed with the ruling today, but the usual suspects are up in arms. The Confederate Wanker warns us that we are about to see a surge in vigilante justice:
There is a macabre old urban legend that has floated around for years in which an exceedingly bad person—a wife-beater, a child-abuser, or other such societal dreg—is found perforated with bullets, and knowing local law enforcement officials note that the miscreant’s death was a serious suicide, where the deceased if found having shot himself in the head and/or back multiple times, in some variations even taking the time to reload an empty weapon and fire again.
Such stories, of course, are told with a knowing smile.
We find before us—and perhaps a bit beneath us—a Supreme Court of the United States that in this session has found more sympathy and more previously unknown rights for suspected terrorists and child rapists than it has for the average American.
Wouldn’t this already be taking place, as there already IS no death penalty for child rape in 49 of the fifty states? And how hard is all this vigilante justice, considering all the people convicted of child rape are incarcerated? Did I miss all the stories of lynch mobs breaking into super-max prisons to bring these child-rapists to actual “justice?”
Malkin, knickers in a full twist, finds perfidy in the media:
Anthony Kennedy and the leftists on the Supreme Court ruled this morning that what child rapist Patrick Kennedy did to his 8-year-old stepdaughter is a crime that should not be punishable by death.
The MSM will tiptoe around what child rapist Patrick Kennedy actually did.
She then goes on to quote details of the rape, presumably because we are not bright enough to figure out what happens when a man rapes his 8 year old stepdaughter. Then again, with the dim bulbs who read Malkin on a daily basis, this may be a safe assumption. Her apparent reasoning is that if only the media would go into more detail about the rape case, then we might be able to execute child rapists in Louisiana. Damned liberal media- that must be why we never heard about the lynch mobs!
I simply do not get it. Nothing has really changed, but to read the reactions you would think this monster had been set free . Some days the only reasonable explanation for the apparent bloodlust from some of these folks is that they really just like death.
