At what point is it too late for a person to be redeemed. I think that in some cases it's impossible to make up for your actions and to change 180° somehow. And that's when a person should ctb, it's either that or a delusional life.

Not sure I get the question- do you mean morally redeemed?

Rapists, murderers or even genocidal megalomaniacs are no more in need of redemption or forgiveness than natural disasters. Assuming they are, which is the premise of your question, would imply there being an indifferent subject that could choose to be 'good' or 'evil', which simply isn't the case.

That being said, in the same way we build dams to prevent flooding, there are criminals who sbould be locked up for life or executed because they are too great a danger for normal people to ever be let loose again. Child rapists are certainly at the top of that list.

Rape, murder (not counting self-defense, obviously), mutilation, and forcing a child into existence.

Sexual attraction to children.
Pedophilia is a disease, not a choice. While acting upon those desires is irredeemable, a person who has never once laid their hands on a child deserves care and treatment, while kept as far away from any child as possible.

While I agree that these people need to be segregated from the rest of society, execution should never be an option no matter how hideous the crime. No state or authority should have the right to end someone else's life with the exception of acting in self-defense.

There are countless reasons, but forgoing all morality-based ones, the fact that the justice system of many countries are fundamentally flawed and biased against certain groups of people means a lot of people were executed only to be found innocent later. George Stinney was one of these people, only 14 years old.
