A pedophile was murdered , in your opinion, what does the murderer deserve as punishment?

The girl was 17. The pedophile was 18. It is a form of being a pedophile.

He was holding hands with his girlfriend and her father called the law to put him in jail. The law said we cant put him in jail for holding hands.

So the father killed him

What do you think his punishment should be

    You are an idiot.

    How can someone who is still a teen be a pedophile, especially when the other person is also a teen, and they could be possibly only DAYS apart in age?

    Killing an innocent person simply because of their sexuality is evil. If the dad did murder the boy, he would get a long time in prison for murder, and I bet a jury would laugh if he insisted the boy was a pedophile. Since his victim was under 21, he might get an even harsher punishment, because murdering minors is generally considered to be more evil. 

    Troll somewhere else.

    I think your punishment should be that the device you're using to communicate should be taken away. In fact, all electronic means of communication should be taken from you, and you must not be allowed on this, or any other similar site, ever again. Then, while you are without your electronic connection to the outside world, you can do some reading. Start by learning what a pedophile is, because if you think it's a boy and girl holding hands, you're going to be calling the "law" every time you see a couple walking together doing just that. Then, get some help for the fixation you have concerning boys and girls together, and fathers that take revenge on the boys--doesn't sound too healthy to me.

    A life sentence, like any other murderer.

    And it is not a form of being a paedophile. Clearly you don't know what a paedophile is.

    he wouldn't be a pedophile by most definitions, but the dead man COULD be a statutory rapist.

    That is actually not a form of being a pedophile. Pedophiles like pre pubescent children, not developed teenagers their own age.

    Father's punishment is life in prison for murder 1.

    The punishment should be Death or at least life imprisonment. What is the indication that the boy is a pedophile? He is 18 and his girlfriend is 17 and there is no indication of sexual activity not to mention being a pedophile is not a crime. Pedophilia is a psychiatric disorder in which an adult or older adolescent experiences a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children. Although girls typically begin the process of puberty at age 10 or 11 and boys 11 or 12, the criteria for pedophilia extend the cut-off point for prepubescence to age 13. A person must be at least 16 years old, and at least five years older than the prepubescent child, for the attraction to be diagnosed as pedophilia.

    okay let me stop you right there, of course sex with a minor is wrong, but a pedophile is some one who engages in sexually activity with prepubescent children. the age of 17, although still considered a minor is not a pedophile act because children go through puberty long before 17. Some countries actually have the age of consent far below 17. Some states in the united states have the age of consent as low as 16.

    Im assuming this is just a "what if" scenario and didnt really happen, because it sounds completely absurd. An 18 year old holding hands with a 17 year old is not a crime in any country or state. EVEN if the girl were prepubescent its still not a crime for anyone of any age to "hold hands", so the 18 is not a pedophile for MANY reasons. If that were true I would be in trouble for holding my fkn daughters hand. This question is ridiculous and has no point at all

      18-year-olds are not minors in the US; they are adults. But neither is an 18-year-old dating a 17-year-old a "pedophile". A 17-year-old is above the age of consent in most US states, and in any case, pedophiles are attracted to pre-pubescent children, not teenagers.

    Depends on the country this took place in, and what the laws there proscribe as punishment for that offense.

    That is all that can be answered from your information.
