TIL that in 1985, 2 men broke into Fran Drescher's home and one of them raped Fran and her friend and gunpoint while Fran's husband was tied up and forced to watch the ordeal. (en.wikipedia.org)

I wish it said more about the rapist. Like that he was hog tied and kicked in the nuts daily, and had all his teeth drilled into without anesthetic, and is being kept in a cell where he has no room to sit or lie down.

Anyone who does that sort of thing to anyone should be tortured for life.

no, you are the nutbag.

Someone who willingly, knowingly causes that kind of harm and imposes such tragedy upon another human being SHOULD seize to have any rights at all.

Rights are only privileges for human beings, those individuals are not human beings and should be treated accordingly.

It is people like YOURSELF who make this world worse, by being too liberal and allowing things like this to slip by.

No, people do not fear prison enough, else we'd have lower crime rates.

We need more severe, draconian punishments.

rapists shouldn't be tortured, they need to be rehabilitated. if they can't be rehabilitated, they need to be segregated from the community.

But how does that satisfy my petty, childish sense of revenge?

It might be comforting to claim them to be monsters, and not human, but you are just sheltering yourself from an uncomfortable truth: Humans sometimes do monstrous things.

If you still claim them to be non-human, and want them treated accordingly, does that mean you can torture them? Is it OK to torture non-human animals?

Reverting to sadistic draconian perverted fantasies of yours would serve nothing but make more desperate criminals. Rapists murder their victims instead. This has been studied at length, and it has been strongly shown to only have negative consequences if you let your own humanity slip in order to punish those who do wrongs.

Your fantasy is sick. I stand by my original assessment: You are a nutbag.

Laws and morals were designed to make people better than animals. They were made to teach people to act out of fairness and logic, not out of whims. If you advocate torture and murder for the sake of justice, you're only following one human moral and ignoring a bunch of others. If you half-ass it, you become just like them except for different reasons.

People that follow these human morals do in fact fear going to prison, that's one of the reasons why we don't just steal whatever we want all the time. Some people don't care however, but in the end it doesn't matter. What matters is not that they feel guilty for what they did (because some of them are literally unable to). What matters is that they are taken out of our society ASAP when they've proven unable to follow our human morals and laws.

I assume you want to do this torture because you're some sort of sadist?

Does your fear of heart disease stop you from eating red meat?
