    Short answer, yes, however there needs to be a new 'fool proof' system to charge the death penalty. I'm not talking about a 23 year old sleeping with a 15 yo, possibly unaware of her age ,morally wrong ? yes however I'm talking about child molesters, predators and rapists but even the it can't just be decided by a jury the decision must be more extensively debated as a life is still a life

    No, they should receive psychiatric help.

    Most pedophiles don't want the urges they have and they hate what they are. Many end up commiting suicide. Granted, the ones who act on their urges should be imprisoned, but they're still sick.
    Thats why the title is CONVICTED - ones who have been found guilty, they should be punished full on

    They should hate what they are - to even think that way is disgusting if they know that their thought are wrong that is the first step to tackling it.

    And they shouldn't be given dolls etc to simulate their evil fantasy. they should be locked up indefinately 24 hours a day

    Yes, and my statement remains the same. Read it again. Convicted pedophiles should be imprisoned, but should also receive psychiatric help. It is their fault that they acted upon their urges, and for that there should be justice, but it is not their fault that they had those urges. It's a sickness.

    Should they be shot dead?
    No. Not at all.

    I'm against the death penalty completely, but even though it's a vile concept, paedophilia isn't the worst crime. Technically a 17 year old sleeping with a 15 year old puts him into that catergory. Although wrong, does it warrant death? God no.

    Anyone that hasn't read any cases or hasn't been involved will say pedophiles deserve a second chance, but they don't, you're telling me that raping a 8day old baby is justified? You're telling me 3months old is okay, and they deserve a second chance? it's all well and good when it's someone elses kid, but we all change when it's our own,

    I totally agree. Thankfully we will soon be out of Europe and Britain will be free to decide how we should punish these monsters. It’s the EU to blame for not allowing us to use the death penalty and giving human rights to peadofiles. Hopefully after Brexit we can have hanging back.

    Judges in England and Wales should have the power to issue death sentences to anyone found guilty of murder, child sex offenses and some serious cases of manslaughter (such as Mick Philpott) and executed via lethal injection provided all 12 jurors found the convict guilty.
