Supreme court outlaws capital Punishment for baby rapers

From the AP --

The Supreme Court on Wednesday outlawed executions of people convicted of raping a child. In a 5-4 vote, the court said the Louisiana law allowing the death penalty to be imposed in such cases violates the Constitution's ban on cruel and unusual punishment.

.....on this one, I'm speechless (since I believe the only cruel and unusual punishment being dealt in regards to these offenses are to the children involved)
