if there is undeniable proof that they did rape someone or molest a child, I think they should be sentenced to death.

I'm and against because there have always been and will always be people who are falsely accused of, and convicted of rape. Sometimes it is malicious, sometimes it is wrong place, wrong time. Until we have a way of knowing that every person convicted is really guilty, we shouldn't start killing them. It is very hard to apologize for a wrongful conviction when new evidence comes up if you have already executed the person.
