State senators are considering a proposal that would allow South Carolina to execute those convicted two or more times of sexually assaulting children.

The amendment came as the Senate took up sexual offender legislation crafted in response to a Florida girl kidnapped and killed last year and a week after a Hartsville man was charged with abducting two girls to an underground shelter and assaulting them.

Currently, South Carolina prosecutors can only seek the death penalty for murder with aggravating circumstances. If the proposed amendment by Sen. Kevin Bryant of Anderson passes, South Carolina would join Louisiana as the only other state to allow the death penalty for an offense other than murder, senators said.

'They may never recover from this,' Bryant said Wednesday of children who are assaulted. 'I say that's just as bad as taking a life.'

Do you agree with the new proposed law stating that repeat child sex offenders should face the death penalty?

No, death for murder with aggravating circumstances is about as far as I will approve death.

But if they MUST kill someone, they should consider Dealth penalty for the parole board members who though "Well, he hasn't raped any little girls while he has been locked away in a private cell in an adult males only maximum security prison, so I think he has been reformed. Parole Granted!"

Hahaha! I'll agree to that, Tx.

I hate to sound insensitive, but there are lots of crimes that victims may never recover from, but it is still not as bad as taking a life

15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 3/26/06 - 12:38:43 AM EST (GMT-5)
I hate to admit it, but I agree with the death penalty in extreme cases but I think serial child rape or rape in general is something extreme.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 3/26/06 - 12:46:43 AM EST (GMT-5)
I think repeat rapists should definately get life, as I don't agree with the death penalty at all. There are certain crimes that should never be tolerated, when someone is released from jail that shows that the crime they commited is tolerated and isn't heinious enough to be prevented forever, I believe rape is a crime that should never be tolerated.

Especially in the cases of children, I do agree with the heart of what this proposal says, which is that child rape and murder are equally offensive acts and their perpetrators are unfit for society though, I would just rather see life.

15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 3/26/06 - 12:49:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
Absolutely.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 3/26/06 - 12:54:57 AM EST (GMT-5)
100% agree with it.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 3/26/06 - 2:32:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, they should just have life in prison.

I say kill them the *first* time they do it. Then they don't get the opportunity to do it again.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 4/4/06 - 5:47:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm against death penalty for any crime.

I'm not in favor of the death penalty, but life imprisonment is a good alternative...
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 4/4/06 - 6:06:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
let them suffer in jail! the jails are too nice these days... i say give them dog food once a week and dont give them tvs and wutever else they get.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 4/4/06 - 10:44:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
Kill em!
simple as that
i know that may sound mean, but i hate people that hurt children.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 4/4/06 - 10:56:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
I was raped as a child.

I want him put where he can't do it again, but I don't want him dead.

I don't believe in the death penalty for anyone.

Life imprisonment is SO expensive. And our prisons are too crowded as it is.

I have two words: Chemical castration.

Another death penaly advocate who has no f*cking clue what they are talking about.
The cost of executing someone, with all the MANDATORY appeals, is many, many times the cost of keeping them in prison for life.
If you are worried about crowded prisons, maybe we should let some of the low level drug offenders out. The ones that have been in there since the 70's because they were at a party where someone snorted a line of coke.
Now, for my answer, I contend that they be locked up for life the FIRST time they molest, therefore, there would be no repeat offenders.

Your right, and there is only one solution, take out the mandatory appeals

30s years for being in the same building as someone doing coke? Wow, where do you live, China!? Because I know the US doesn't do that!

The mandatory appeals will never be eliminated, especially since so many people on death row have been found not guilty of the crimes they were convicted of through DNA evidence.
In my opinion, the US is just about at the end of the line as far as executions go.
Look up the Rockefeller Drug laws in New York State, hot shot. The US does indeed do that!!!!

If they are locking people up that long just for doing drugs, then yeah, I definitely agree with you.

I also didn't know that appeals were mandatory.

15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 4/6/06 - 12:22:09 AM EST (GMT-5)
No-one should get the death penalty, they should suffer for life in jail.
Perhaps they should just continuously be put in with the general population in jail...Martin Bryant (killed 35 ppl back in about 1995, 2 kids included) is now in solitary confinement because he was just in the hospital all the time, other inmates would beat the sh*t outta him.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 4/6/06 - 12:35:30 AM EST (GMT-5)
I was joking about the mandatory appeals thing, Brett, that is what the is about, I was messing with you.

As for the Rockefeller Drug laws... I'm just glad I live in Texas. Leave it to the New Yorkers
