Liberal Supreme Court Protects Child Rapists
This week the Supreme Court decided the death penalty is too cruel for child rapists. The 5 liberal justices concluded that this would be considered cruel and unusual punishment. Many consider the brutal rape of a child to be cruel and unusual and find it disappointing that liberal sensibilities choose to protect evil over the innocent.
The Supreme Court has struck down a Louisiana law that allows the execution of people convicted of a raping a child.
In a 5-4 vote, the court says the law allowing the death penalty to be imposed in cases of child rape violates the Constitution’s ban on cruel and unusual punishment.
“The death penalty is not a proportional punishment for the rape of a child,” Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote in his majority opinion. His four liberal colleagues joined him, while the four more conservative justices dissented.
Liberal judges display a pattern of being more concerned with championing the rights of the criminal over the victim. All too often a predator is allowed to prey on the innocent time and time again. The courts make a mockery of justice while the children and their families must continue with much of their lives destroyed forever. This constant liberal cry of, “it’s for the children” must occasionally be backed up with action and not just feel-good rhetoric.
Maybe in the scheme of things a little vengeance against predators is justice for the victims and society as a whole.
