I've learned a lot from the rational, considered, profound thoughts of those in favour of capital punishment and I'm deeply indebted to them and have be persuaded by their rhetoric
But what about the rest of the criminal justice system?
Criminals reoffend, receive a slap on the wrist, are jet off by do gooders and the ordinary tax payer pays through the nose for a prison system that is no more than a chain of holiday camps.
Here's how it should be sorted in a way that is cheap, brings proper justice, And prevents reoffending
1 thieves should have both hands chopped off . Yes I know it sounds a bit Muslim but so is curry and we all like a vindaloo. The culprits should in the name of clemency be allowed to keep their hands in their freezer for a set time in the event of a successful appeal
2 rapists: well you can guess can't you, all I'll say is it should be done without anaesthetic
3 manslaughter: people do this when they are in a high emotional state, so a compulsory lobotomy should deal with that, they'll be like pussycsts for the rest of their lives
4 death penalty for all murders whether its a gangland shooting it an abused wife who can't take it any more or whatever: murder is murder.
5 motoring offences: the government should stop persecuting the poor motorist
There prisons emptied no repeat offending and satisfaction guaranteed
Edit: and dirt cheap as well
Slight issue.....Your system assumes there will be no miscarriages of justice. Those proven to have been wrongly convicted can hardly grow a new head as part of their compensation years down the line.
As for the silly idea of stopping persecuting the poor motorist. You defending my right to have 10 pints then get behind the wheel and drive at a group of children? Or my right to ignore the safe speed limit and end up on the wrong side of the road heading for group of said children?
Or is it right that when caught ignoring the rules of the road i should be dealt with under the criminal justice system?
You would be hardly likely to get on a flight if you saw the pilot and captain staggering up the stairs with a bottle of vodka in hand slurring something about seeing how fast they can go.
