29. death penalty for child rapists
I'm not fond of the death penalty, but in this case, my biggest problem with it is that it would seem to remove ANY reason for the rapist to leave his little victim-witness alive.

My research indicates that most rapes (at least of adults) do NOT end in murder..We would not want to change that.

The whole subject is so dark and evil that I feel like raising crossed fingers (Yeah, as in vampire defense) every time the ugly subject comes up.
