Repeat Child Rapist Executed, finally

LA Times

MIAMI — Convicted child rapist and murderer Mark Dean Schwab was put to death Tuesday at Florida State Prison, the state’s first execution since a botched lethal injection 18 months ago raised concern that a condemned man had endured a “cruel and unusual” ordeal.

Schwab, 39, was executed for the rape and murder of 11-year-old Junny Rios-Martinez of Cocoa. He killed the boy in April 1991, just a month after early release from a previous prison term for sexually assaulting a 13-year-old boy.

Anyone care to comment on why this maniac was let out of prison after the first one? Who made the decision that his time was long enough? Who decided he was “rehabilitated”? Why do we have a law that permits a child rapist to ever be let loose on society again?

    Thank God this bastard had been executed. When assholes like him get released from prison and go back into their previous despicable behavior, it makes you wish the same swift laws in China which sentence convicted criminals to death would be applied against them.

    Not only China, how long would he have survived in Singapore?

    I understand Florida has changed its predator laws (rape, sexual assualt) to two strikes and you’re out. Seems reasonable. I do believe it should be harder to get parole on the first sentence.

    I just can’t see even two strikes for someone who viciously rapes a child. There comes a time when a people, thru their justice system have to take a stand and draw a line in the sand. If someone is so screwed up that he actually commits such a crime, I think he should be off the streets, one way or the other, for good.

    No one, and I mean absolutely no one, can guarantee that, if given his freedom, this type of criminal will not commit a similar crime again. And without that guarantee for society, we simply cannot take the chance. The benefit of the doubt must be given to the people, not the criminals who prey upon them.

    The outrageous level of violent crime in the US, mostly committed by repeat offenders (who were incarcerated then released) just proves my point.

    No one will ever know if the people are criminals or the criminals are people
