This type of situation makes me wonder whether the death penalty would be an appropriate punishment for Chaney. Last year, Chaney had pleaded no contest to a charge of failing to register as a sex offender, and now he killed an 8-year-old boy who was just trying to protect his 7-year-old sister from being molested by a 23-year-old man. The death penalty would be considered as constitutional in this case since Chaney committed a homicidal crime.
What kind of punishment do you think is appropriate for Chaney? Do you think giving Chaney the death penalty would be appropriate in this case? What can we do to prevent these type of crimes from happening?
