Despite the ruling by the Supreme Court yesterday banning the death penalty for child rapists, state politicians are vowing to fight on. It is unlikely they will succeed.
"Anybody in the country who cares about children should be outraged that we have a Supreme Court that would issue a decision like this," said Alabama Attorney General Troy King, a Republican. The justices, he said, are "creating a situation where the country is a less safe place to grow up."
The court's 5-4 decision Wednesday derailed the efforts of nearly a dozen states supporting the right to kill those convicted of raping a child — and said execution was confined to attacks that take a life and to other crimes including treason and espionage.
At issue before the high court was a Louisiana case involving Patrick Kennedy, sentenced to die for raping his 8-year-old daughter in her bed, an assault so severe she required surgery.
Michelle Malkin has the description of the damage done to the victim during the rape in question. It is not for the weak of stomach. The Supreme Court has effectively given protection to monsters.
Consider what the makeup of the Supreme Court will be like if a leftist appoints the justices. Remember this in November, folks.
