There are certain crimes that call for specific penalties. Life in solitary for murder is apt. Castration for child molestion and put into prison population is apt. But take a finger and the perpetrator still has nine left and free to do as he pleases. We are so over incarcerated here, rehabilitation should be the goal. Better yet good life skill education. Then most everyone could keep their digits and limbs
Who determines what is an "offense" worthy of prison? Is their determination correct? Would you bet your life on that if people who opposed your politics were in power? Reap what you sow mother fucker.
As I specifically stated.. "Violent crime"
"Violent crime" is nowhere to be found in either your question or your topic list.
No. Just because someone is a violent asshole, doesn't mean you have to reciprocate violently. There's prisons - put them there. Some places even have the death penalty. This is 2016 - we're supposed to be evolving, not going back to mutilation.
Explain dear DW2... You give someone a finger for 1 year in prison? Etc?
I'm a big fan in this process. If somebody perpertrates a violent crime and is only given one year in prison.. they should have the option of giving up a finger instead. Five years.. five fingers. Life.. both hands. With the additional kick that they can not ever collect any form of tax payer funds towards anything for the rest of their lives.
and yes if they keep going after that. Feet are in play.
Ugh.... Have you thought that perhaps no one wants to lose a digit?
I wouldn't commit the crime. I don't go to prison and I keep all my fingers and toes.
