McCAIN DISAPPOINTED WITH SUPREME COURT RULING THAT FAILS TO PROTECT OUR CHILDREN

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) today released the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s decision issued in Kennedy v. Louisiana:

“As a father, I believe there is no more sacred responsibility in American society than that of protecting the innocence of our children. I have spent over twenty-five years in Congress fighting for stronger criminal sentences for those who exploit and harm our children. Today’s Supreme Court ruling is an assault on law enforcement’s efforts to punish these heinous felons for the most despicable crime. That there is a judge anywhere in America who does not believe that the rape of a child represents the most heinous of crimes, which is deserving of the most serious of punishments, is profoundly disturbing.”
