Um, sounds a little rough. Do you mean possibly having citizens use self defense against villians who attack them and have concealed carry permits? If so then yes.

It is better to repair people because if someone comes out and offends again, that means another innocent person is a victim of a crime. It'd especially be helpful with people with legitimate mental problems like schizophrenia or BPD. Our crime in this country would sink like a stone if we tried more to reform people.

You must be young..... In time you will learn that some people are just bad. There are bad kids, bad teens, bad adults. Some people can't and don't want to be "repaired." They just want to do what they want regardless of how it affects others. It is only once they get caught doing something so moumentally henious that they finally disappear forever behind bars. It shouldn't get to that point. We give too many 2nd and 3rd, and 4th chances, and so on to people.

This is different than people with legit mental issues that can be treated with meds. I agree with you on that point, but there is no medication for stupidy and disrespecting the rights and lives of others.

I agree with both of y'all. A guy who commits assault one time, or theft or maybe even robbery might not do it again if he's reformed and rehabilitated.

But a guy who murders or rapes?

Crime would sink like a stone if we lopped off their heads. It would be a lot cheaper too.

It is just like that man in (ohio, I think) who killed both of his sister in laws and his son right in front of his cancer stricken wife...he had been convicted of murder in 1974 and was released.....then he does this.......sickening!

Well now it's time to turn our eyes to Montgomery County. Tomorrow they'll be sentencing Brittany Norwood, the Lululemon murderer. The judge is actually open to arguments for life with parole.

Frankly, anything less than life without parole will be a gross miscarriage of justice and an unconscionable wrong.

Here's a perfect example of the tragedies of the criminal injustice system. A guy gets convicted of armed robbery, gets a 15 year sentence....all suspended, and he's found murdered yesterday. A real justice system saves lives!
