According to academic researches most of pedophiles and rapists are people with mental disorders. The cannot control their actions and do not understand what they do. Louis Theroux, a journalist from the UK, visits the mental hospital in Coalinga and talks with pedophiles and rapists. Most of them deny their illness because of fear of psychiatric hospitals, but doctors definitely diagnosed them as mentally ill persons. And we know that mental illness are evaluated as irrational state and nadequate state. So they shouldn't be killed just because thay have such disorders. It is not their fault, but parents' and hospitals' fault.
I agree that pedophiles are mentally ill but what about the rapists? Is it the same disease? And if you refer to the disease, should we ignore the number of children and women that become victims of violence? Should we close our eyes to this indeed? Besides, according to crisis psychologist Michail Hasminsky, the vast majority of rapists are sane people and they go to this step consciously. That means they are criminals and they should be punished severely!!!
First of all, according to Resick and Jackson most rapists are "mentally ill" or psychologically disturbed. But of course there are some rapists who consciously commit violence, but it is not a reason to kill them. No one has the rights to decide the man's fate. God gave life, God will take away it. It is not our life and it somehow can be evaluated as interference with the right to private life. Moreover, everything can happen in our life and no one is safe from it.
I strongly beleieve that rapists and pedophiles should not be killed. Capital punishment is not appropriate punishment for them, unless someone is killed. Even in this case, murders should not be killed. It is not the solution. Moreover, as rapists and pedophiles are mentally disturbed people, their rehabiliation is difficult and not always it is possible to cure them. Sometimes there are situations when someone was falsely convicted of child molestation or rape, so this man will stay in prison.
