    studies clearly show that extreme punishments do not in fact aid deterrence either general deterrence or specific deterrence so other than sounding tough it does nothing and in fact does a lot more harm than good.

    And since I don't support the DP period, i dont agree that the Steubenville folks should be hanged.

    Now, i do think they should go away for a long long long time because their crime was especially heinous.

    •  when they get out they'll do it again (0+ / 0-)

      if they're not more than 80 years old apiece by then.

      Rapists don't quit.

        the 24 year old or the 18 year old are all pedophiles who will do it again when they get out?

        All rapists will always and forever rape if they've commit that offense, whether statutory or forcible, one time?

        Wow.
