Idaho House Passes Bill To Give Pedophiles The Death Penalty
Idaho House Passes Bill To Give Pedophiles The Death Penalty

The Idaho House passed a controversial bill Tuesday which would make certain sex crimes against preteen children punishable by death. The bill passed overwhelmingly, but the bill’s sponsor noted that it could be unconstitutional.

‘Rep. Bruce, Skaug, R-Nampa, who co-sponsored the bill, along with Rep. Josh Tanner, R-Eagle, said that House Bill 515 is designed to give the steepest penalty to the most heinous of crimes committed against children 11 years of age and younger. And that HB-515 would be in line with that of first-degree murder.’

“There is a deep, dark, dark side in our culture, and it’s our job to protect the children. There are times when things are so wicked that retribution is appropriate. It would be very rare that this case would happen, but it will happen. And I say to you when you see that case, you read it in the newspaper you’re going to say this is the once case this needs to happen.”

The House approved the bill in a 56-12 vote. The bill will now go to the Senate for committee review.

Overall, the bills sponsor hope that the U.S. Supreme Court will review the Idaho bill, if it becomes law, and therefore issue a ruling that would expand the eligibility for the death penalty.
