Boy Governor's Latest Plot Against Children

Hold the presses! After three years in office, the Boy Governor has just noticed that raping children is a bad thing.

Duh.

He wants to execute child rapists -- a really bad (if emotionally satisfying) idea. First of all, the death penalty is both expensive and useless as a deterrent. BUT IT GETS WORSE! If you make any crime but murder a capital offense, it provides an INCENTIVE to murder the victim, to reduce the chances of ever being charged & convicted. Eliminate the victim as witness, since you can only be executed once.

That is where the old saying "As well be hung for a sheep as a goat" comes from, Matt. It's in all the law books. Ask a lawyer -- if you can find one still talking to you. Even proposing execution for such a crime actually endangers the children we want to protect -- even if we never get around to executing anyone.

So is the Boy Governor so dumb he does not realize that he is actually endangering child victims -- or so desperate to be reelected that he does not care?

Or does the answer really matter?

There must be something really wrong with the Governor's ability to consider the outcome of his decisions. I hope the press eats him alive for his lack of consideration as to the consequences.

Maybe he has too many "yes men" in his office. One would think that at least one of his many advisors would have explained the potential, if not probable, threat imposed upon the victims.

A couple of states already have death penalty crimes other than murder. A few have the death penalty as a possible result for kidnapping and hijacking an aircraft.

Only Lousiana has the death penalty for raping a child under 12.

Phil is 100% on the mark. If the penalty for letting the victim live is no different than that for killing the victim, why keep a witness alive?

Knee-jerk solutions tend to cause more problems.

I knew the 2moons dil so I always try my best to earn them more and more to make myself strong. I have never played the game before, at the beginning I did not know what is so I went to kill the monsters with the 2moons gold that I earned with myself in the game. I will duty bound to a friend to help brush the 2moon dil together with my friends. I spend a good relationship is then fly to tears. If my levels are very high, I can go to buy 2moons dil more and more and I will not depend on my friends to help me to earn them. I get some cheap 2moons gold as the gifts to encourage me.

Even it got me crazy enough to buy Guild Wars Prophecies with some my own GuildWars Gold and Nightfall and Eye of the North. I wonder to know why are not you guys and gals who like the PVP concept buying this awesome game. okey, it is expensive to buy gw gold all parts. If you lack the GuildWars money, but it is worth it and no monthly costs and the game gets updated weekly at least. Once again, if anyone wants to play Guild Wars sometime add me to friends here Guild Wars Gold. And realize how much cheap gw gold I bought in the last couple of weeks, months, years. So I found this Guild Wars Factions and installed it.

I am so happy to get some 2moons dil and the 2moons gold is given by my close friend who tells me that the 2moon dil is the basis to enter into the game. Therefore, I should buy 2moons dil with the spare money and I gain some cheap 2moons gold from other players.
