I can't get over a world who believes that corporal punishment of any kind is cruel and inhuman to any person who has raped and or murdered a child or woman (and man if it happens). Everyday another happens and at this point even domestic violence should be considered attempted murder with premeditation. Does anyone consider the child or women and how that person never even gave what was fair or decent, a second thought before they did their malicious crime to innocent people. Shame on all of our societies. Free rights are something we earn. We all have the same choice between right and wrong. The cruelty is the act that was commited during the crime and that individual had a choice not to commit crime. Quit excusing them.

Agreed. This is only a slap on the wrist for this bag of sh*t.

The flogging notwithstanding, the prison portion of the sentence seems pretty light. Only seven years? Not nearly enough.

Maybe Bubba will get ahold of him during his jail time.
