1 Year Old Girls CAN Marry & Death is “Cruel & Unusual”

Ok, there are a couple topics today that are just plain frustrating.

First, here in the U.S., the Supreme Court was Divided Over Whether to Allow Death Penalty for Child Rapists.  In a 5-4 vote, the court said the Louisiana law allowing the death penalty to be imposed in such cases violates the Constitution’s ban on cruel and unusual punishment.  “The death penalty is not a proportional punishment for the rape of a child,” Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote in his majority opinion. His four liberal colleagues joined him, while the four more conservative justices dissented.,2933,351528,00.html

Oh yes, even this has NOTHING to do with what is RIGHT or what is WRONG but instead which partyline one is walking… DISGUSTING!

Second, a fine upstanding (SARCASM) Massachusetts Lawmaker’s pledge to ‘Rip Apart’ Child Rape Victims at trials,2933,371344,00.html – Really?  As if the rape of a child is not bad enough, horrible enough or shall we say “Cruel & Unusual” treatment of a child… as if that were not enough, this scum of the earth goes on to say “I’m going to make sure that the rest of their life is ruined, that when they’re 8 years old, they throw up; when they’re 12 years old, they won’t sleep; when they’re 19 years old, they’ll have nightmares and they’ll never have a relationship with anybody.”

My personal opinion is that these scumbags are perpetrators themselves, why else would they be SO APPARENTLY OK with such treatment of a child?  Is it because they fear for themselves that they are so determined to make sure that this ONE area in particular is kept as their little “safe haven” with minimum penalties?

But hey, there is always the middle east to look to for guidance with their blessed ways, religious muslim conservatism and continuous cries for FAMILY VALUES.  I suppose they mean values like, 1 year old girls being able to marry?  No joke,,2933,371581,00.html  Of course, don’t think this is completely insane… I mean al-Mu’bi does say: “You can have a marriage contract even with a 1-year-old girl, not to mention a girl of 9, 7 or 8,” he said. “But is the girl ready for sex or not?” What is the appropriate age for sex for the first time? This varies according to environment and tradition,”

Yes, indeed, what is the appropriate age for sex the first time?  Is it 2?  4?  6?  8?  Huh, and does such thing as “Child Rape” exist when the relationship is based on ownership… OOOPS I mean MARRIAGE papers?

If only FUNDING was somehow tied to the RAPE or STOPPING the RAPE of children.  Maybe then the politicians would find a way to be serious about this.  Maybe then the children would count?  I mean they love to bring the kids out at election time touting the importance of electing them to office or voting for their initiatives because it is FOR THE CHILDREN afterall… yes yes indeed… they need better classrooms, they need different school books, they need better school lunchs, they need breakfast served… they need they need they need… maybe if we paid the thugs to PROTECT them… maybe just maybe
