/ Should rape carry a life sentence in Poland?
I think that rape is one of those things that are not good of course, but not as horrible as society makes it out to be.
I think that you are a dangerous individual if you think that it is "society" that makes rape "horrible". The victim that this thread refers to was so badly beaten that she had to spend a whole year in hospital, two years later she is still in a wheelchair and has suffered permanent brain damage.
Very often in rape cases the victim is so traumatised that they never fully recover so in effect suffer their own personal "life sentence".
it needs to be frowned upon so vigorously
Well that's going to be a real deterent, isn't it?
Rape is forcing someone to do something they often do
You have got no idea have you? You don't know anything what so ever about sex and relationships, do you? With that comment you seem to be under the deluded notion that the only difference between rape and consensual sex with a willing partner is the willingness of the parter/victim.
It's not that bad to take a **** and not wash your hands
How can anybody put not washing your hands after taking a crap into the same catagory as rape is beyond belief!!
Regarding the orginal question, if found quilty and if the victim is alive then the victim should be free to choose the punishment for the perpetrator.
I can see where you're comming from Mr F, but I think the slow painful deaths people would think up could end up as bad as the original crime!
