Now...put your opinions regarding the death penalty aside...Assuming you do believe in it...do you believe it should extend to other serious crimes than murder?
In this case, a young girl was raped and the accused was sentenced to the death penalty. The last time a case got brought to the supreme court it was an adult who had been raped and the death penalty was thrown out.
Obviously the crime is more heinous since it's being done to a little girl, but still...does the person deserve a shot at rehabilitation? If not, is life in prison a fair punishment?
Looking forward to replies.
