I think it should!  But only if it is proven beyond a reasonable doubt - meaning forensic evidence.. not just witness testimony..

I only think they should be executed because most of the time they cannot be rehabilitated..

well, not with overcrowded prisons that already have hundreds of felons who are on the WAITINGLIST for a death penalty, i would rethink strategies on how to eliminate crime/sex offending itself other then eliminating more lives whether they were good or bad.

It depends on the nature of the offense.  I don't think teens who are sexting deserve to be put to death but they can still be convicted of a sex crime.  I think that in the case of a child rapist then yes I would not be apposed to it.  There is a case here you all probably remember.   Chester Stiles raped a two year old little girl and video taped himself doing it.  In cases like this where there is indisputable evidence then the death penalty should be on the table.

yes, I think if they have sexually injured a person...especially a child they should be on death row. Now like another poster said it may not end up happening that they die BUT they will be off the streets forever till they do
