What punishment is fitting for those that torture children?

I had to write a paper on chemical castration for child molestors, but besides the death penalty what should we be doing to those that tortue and murder innocent children?

Let's try to be creative...

I am a firm believer in a na eye for an eye so I believe that how ever they tortured that child, they themselves should be tortured, with one exception, they can not be alllowed to die. That's the easy way out in my opinion.

  • i agree with you. but for some reason that is considered cruel and unusual punishment, even though it is what they did to a CHILD.

  • Jennifer, I agree with you. it is outrageous to me that they are calling it cruel and unusual to do anything besides lethal injection... I mean how can people read the case files of what these maniacs put these babies through and say let's just put him to sleep, no biggie...

  • Give them a gun and let them shoot themselves.

  • Cut off their penis: they'll never rape another kid.
    Cut off their hands: they'll never touch another kid.
    Cut off their voice: they'll never talk to another kid.
    Cut off their legs: they'll never go near another kid.
    Then just leave them all together in a cage and only feed them the bare necessities to keep them alive.

  • I'm a fan of "corporal" punishment, always have been... In countries where canings and loss of limb are a real threat in cases like these there are MANY MANY less cases!

    Now, that said... I don't know that I could put a name on what should or shouldn't be done in these cases... I'm also a huge fan of the Death Penalty, but I don't think a first offense should ever be a DP case if there is no death involved in the case. But I wouldn't take life in prison off the table... or medical testing...
