It depends. If it's a case like Ryan Farmers than no. And if it's an actual child than yes they should.

WHAT AGE DO YOU THINK A CHILD QUITS BEING A CHILD AND BECOMES AN ADULT?
THE LAW SAYS 18. aNYONE THAT IS 16 TO 18 THEY CALL IT SATUATORY RAPE, anyone under the age of 16 it is child molestation. There are no special cercomstances.
As for ryan farmer he is a good example. he not only had sex with one 13 year old but 2. Now in most peoples eyes he is a child molester. but you say no, So why do you say that are you his mother or sister? Im telling you HE IS A CHILD MOLESTER!!!!!!!!!! a 13 YEAR OLD GIRL MAY VERY WELL LOOK LIKE SHE IS 18 BUT HER ACTIONS WILL GIVE HER AWAY EVERY TIME! NOW WHAT MAKES IT OKAY FOR RYAN FARMER TO GO ARROUND HAVEING SEX WITH CHILDREN IN ANYONES EYES. NOW YOU ALSO SAID THIS GIRL HAD BEEN AROUND THEN I SAY IF SHE HAS THEN everyone including ryan farmer are child molesters she still did not know what she was doing!!!!!!!
do you understand THAT!

Anyone who would take advantage of a child is a sick individual... and killing the sick is inexcusable.

Ok, first off I just want to say that I think that child molesters are the scum of the earth and in my heart I wish that we could give them the death penalty but it just can't happen folks. If we start giving the death penalty for anything but murder itself what's to keep these creeps from escalating the crimes they are committing. If someone thinks that they will get the death penalty from molesting a child there is nothing to stop them from killing said child. If someone thinks they will get the death penalty from raping someone, what is to keep them from killing the victim after the rape? Nothing. If the death penalty is imposed for anything but murder it will do much more harm than hurt.

The death penalty does not deter crime. Never has... never will.

Earl, I agree with you 100%; however, you did not reveal your position on the death penalty. Would you care to let us know where stand in regards to the death penalty?
I took a criminal justice class as an elective, and was taught that the death penalty was not a deterrent to crime. I believe in the death penalty;however, the appeals process is to time consuming and costly to the tax payers. Do you agree?

The appeals process is very costly and time consuming, but without it where would we stand? To date 108 people have been executed and had their cases over turned after the fact. I am not ok with this country executing innocent people and as long as the death penalty is in effect this will always happen. If we made the appeals process any less extensive how many innocent people may have been executed up to this point? I say put these animals in solitary confinement for the rest of their days. I feel this is in many ways a worse punishment than death. Also, the average cost of a lifetime sentence in solitary confinement is 800,000 dollars. The average cost to taxpayers of an execution is 2-3 million.

Earl I agree with you the death penalty is not a crime deterrent. The only way to make this possible would be to make the certainty of getting it when you commit murder near 100% and this is simply not a feasible option for countless reasons.

I have a degree in law enforcement and worked several years as a case manager at a halfway house for those reintegrating into society from the prison system. Several of our clients had been convicted of murder. Threat of the death penalty had not deterred them at all. They went into the penal system and came out even worse… prison was a nightmare from which they could not awake due to the daily threat of rape, disease, violence, etc. In addition, the stresses of isolation from loved ones; the shame and grief of looking at Mom and the baby through Plexiglas; and fear of the next day’s or next hour’s physical attacks from predators had taken an enormous emotional and mental toll. Prison is and was for them an institution of terror – with daily survival the only priority (It always amuses me when I hear the woefully uniformed crow about how good the incarcerated have it… television, gym, college programs, three meals, a bed, etc.- they have absolutely no idea).
To answer your questions; the death penalty doesn’t work (as you and I were taught in college) and in my experience as a case manager is ineffective… so why have it? Some would say those who take another’s life must forfeit their own – the ‘eye-for-an-eye’ crowd, for example; using as their justification the teachings of a man considered to be the epitome of patience, tolerance and love – kind of ironic, isn’t it? By any measure, someone who would kill another is by definition emotionally, mentally and spiritually disturbed (sick) and executing the sick is indefensible, no matter how heinous the offense. All execution does is offer a sadistic society the twisted pleasure of vengeance and retaliation; it is NOT a deterrent, it is NOT justice. Those who champion state-sanctioned execution are just as emotionally, mentally and spiritually sick as those who actually kill. The rage, selfishness and self-righteousness are the same and the only difference between the two groups is one has pulled the trigger and the other has not; but would like to (as exemplified by the ‘I’ll pull the switch’ crowd).
As for the lengthy appeals process and associated costs; treatment/rehabilitation programs are exponentially less expensive than incarceration/death row and are the only logical solution for serious crime. And I mean residential treatment/rehabilitation programs that last for years – where the offender foots most of, if not all, the bill. For those who refuse or are incapable of rehabilitation; confinement (not the cruelty of our existing penal system), treatment and monitoring are a much more humane option.

Earl I would have to say that I disagree with you on a couple of things, but it is nice that a few people can have a conversation here on topix without a bunch of hillbilly ass holes who don't have any idea what they are talking about ranting and raving. I myself am a soon to graduate criminal justice student, and the death penalty does and always has fascinated me. Even though I disagree with you a couple of points on how they should be handles, we are in complete agreement that the death penalty is a complete waste of money and there are much better ways to handle these criminals.

The death penalty would still not be a deterrent, 100% certainty or not. For example, a suicide bomber executes his death penalty. The denial, delusion, selfish, self-centered and self-righteous insane excuses associated with all homicidal intent override any rational thinking about the consequences of our actions; the certainty of death or not. Always has been, maybe always will be.

Thanks for your kind, articulate response! And you’re right; it is refreshing to have a decent conversation!
I don’t claim to have all the answers; especially when it deals with the sticky, emotional, volatile subject of the death penalty. My suggestions are based on experiences working with the formerly incarcerated. Hopefully you will someday be a part of a criminal justice system with a more enlightened approach to dealing with the death penalty and crime in general. Good luck in your career!

STEP 6.REMOVE RIGHT & LEFT HAND,SO HE WILL NOT TOUCH A CHILD.

STEP 7.REMOVE LEGS SO HE CAN NOT RUN AFTER A CHILD.

step 8.remove brain so SEX will not enter the mind.

Remove legs? Remove tongue? Remove eye, etc.? Sadistic and rage induced response.

Thank you for making my point.

Mr Earl,apaently you have not known any one who has been molested as a child.the hurt that will allways be with them.there may be that one child that has to indure the PAIN,hurt and a lifetime of terrible memories of a discusting child molester.these sickos know what they are doing as soon as they put their hands on a child.i think the 11 step program is the ONLY WAY.I do not beleive in takeing some ones life, but when it comes to an inocent child, who is going to be there 24/7 to protect them from so meny preditors. they are every where.mommy & daddy cant allways be there to keep these monsters away.i pull up on the computer what preditors are near me,i am discusted on how meny there is.so i feel like our children will never be safe as long as their ARE child molesters(monsters) among us.YES THE MORE I THINK ABOUT IT THE 11 STEP PROGRAM SHOULD BE SIGNED INTO LAW,I FEEL NOTHING FOR A CHILD MOLESTER.I FEEL LIKE you COULD BE PROTECTING THEM,ARE YOU??? I THINK CHILD MOLESTERS ARE MULTIPLYING LIKE RATS,AND NOTHING IS BEING DONE. SO COME ON EVERYBODY LETS STAND UP FOR OUR CHILDREN,NOT THE PREDITORS....
