Finally a Stand against Child Molesters; South Carolina Bill, Execute 2-time Molesters

Sick and tired of reading about judges from Vermont and Ohio letting child rapists out with little to no punishments for their crimes? Tired of hearing about the rights of the criminals and that they have an illness?

South Carolina has an answer to that illness that will cure it permanently. In a backlash to the recent Dungeon rapes by sex offender Kenneth Glenn Hinson, the SC attorney general backs a proposal that will execute twice convicted child molesters.

Some S.C. legislators want to execute twice-convicted child molesters, and experts say such a law could be upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.

“This is a historic moment for South Carolina to step forward and force the Supreme Court’s hand,” said Sen. David Thomas, R-Greenville, who is supporting a bill that could make the state the second — behind Louisiana — to allow the death penalty for a crime other than murder. “We have changed as a nation since the 1970s when the court last addressed the constitutionality of capital punishment for a sex crime. It’s a horror — someone who twice rapes a young child — they deserve a death sentence.”

It is about time someone start taking the protection of our children seriously. All too often we hear that a sexual predator needs to be rehabilitated and provided therapy. This of course after they have violated how many children? It is well documented that a sex offender has committed far too numerous to count acts before they are ever arrested. Then when they are, misguided judges provide a slap on the wrist. Not any more in SC if the legislature and AG get their way.

“I’m going to give the General Assembly a green light on passing this law because we need this to protect our children and to deter these sexual predators,” McMaster said late Monday.

Robert Blecker, a professor who teaches a course in death penalty law at New York Law School, says he believes the “right case” for capital punishment for a twice convicted child molester could be ruled constitutional.

Several states seem to be following this same “get tough” attitude to protect children. However, some states like Maine just don’t get it and actually have the audacity to call things that would protect children like Jessica’s Law, an election-year gimmick.

Richard Dieter, executive director of the Death Penalty Information Center in Washington, said several states, including Oklahoma and Georgia, are considering capital punishment for repeat child molesters. Kentucky has tightened penalties for repeat child molesters but decided recently not to pursue the death penalty.

In Louisiana, a convicted child rapist has been sentenced to death row, and in 1999 the Louisiana Supreme Court upheld the ruling.
