Should the death penalty be extended to violent rapists, pedophiles, and/or those who torture?
To be more specific, a violent rapist of any sort, a pedophile who is not just an 18 year old having consensual sex with his 16 year old girlfriend, and one who is found guilty of torture that includes permanent physical disfigurement. Regardless of your position, please explain why.
please don’t start a semantic argument about how all rape is violent. Also, for the sake of this discussion, assume waterboarding is NOT the type of torture that would be punishable by death.
