South Carolina OK's Death Penalty For Repeat Child Molestors

It's about time.

The Supreme Court has claimed, idiotically, that only an active participation in a murder can warrant the death penalty. So, a gruesome thug who, for example, captures someone and proceeds to hack off all of his limbs -- while keeping the poor victim alive -- is not eligible for the death penalty.

Makes no damn sense. We shouldn't expand the offenses that can earn you a date with The Needle greatly, but surely there are some offenses that are so horrific they are every bit as evil as murder.

Like child molestation, for example. Especially repeat offenses of child molestation.

Let's see if the new court endorses the previous stupid precedent, or rules that it was largely dicta and confines the ruling to the specific instance (i.e., that the death penalty can't be imposed on someone only tangentially involved in murder).


In related news, Carson Palmer just announced he will no longer play any games against the Jaguars in South Carolina, stating that their "backwards ways" are not supportive of the Carson Palmer Cornhole Classic Lifestyle (TM).
