That person should not be convicted. If I were a juror I would not convict a person of a crime unless it was proved they did it. If I was a prosecutor I would not charge a man on the word of a victim alone. That is a larger issue.
That you might execute an innocent person is the only valid argument against the death penalty. I support it anyway but I acknowledge that argument is a serious one, the government is incompetent.
Perhaps not every rapist I would but in certain cases yes, they should definitely die. Pedos, ones where they beat the girl half to death, etcetera. There are too many rapes, fear needs to be put into these scum.
What you said earlier, what if they just kill the victim, well if a murderer knows he will get the noose if caught, why would he surrender if caught by the cops instead of shooting at them? We can’t let them dictate the rules.
It doesn’t matter if he shouldn’t be convicted, because many times he is.
“We cant let them dictate the rules.”
That’s easy to say when you won’t be the one murdered.
You and I just have differing opinions, there isn’t a “correct” answer to this.
