You don't know your history very well do you.  America was hanging people in this country from its beginnings and well into the 20th century.   America oversaw the hangings of the nazi war criminals after the trials at Nuremberg.  Imagine if every county in America had a hanging day on the first Sunday of every month at the court house square at about 2pm to hang every convicted murderer, robber, rapist, & child molester after their appeal process was over.  Reminds me of Clint Eastwoods 1968 movie "Hang Em High".  Definitely bring all the children to let them know what happens to you if you grow up and commit vicious crimes against other people.  Bring the switch back on the kids at home.  Bring the paddle back on the kids at school.   

Would crime go down?  You betcha.  Would liberty suffer? absolutely not.  I bet you could walk any street before a year was out and not get assaulted be it day or night.  Will all this happen?  Of course not!   We don't like gunsmoke, rawhide, or bonanza anymore.  We like friends, maury povich, and cheaters haha!

      Yep

       

      Those  were  the   days    dallas

       

      My   Mother  could  make  a  person   dance  a  jig   with   one   of   those         White Bounce      Hyper            Smile

       

      She  didnt  have  to  do  it   that  often ,  as   we   knew  what   to   expect  if   we  were   bad

       

      I would say there are quite a few of them now-a-days ,  that could use a dose of  that  same  medicine also

       

      From  what  I've   seen 

       

      Take discpline out of the  home  and   school   ,

       

      And  thats  what is behind  much  of  what  we  see  that  goes  on  today

        Thats not very severe.  That "patelian" character from New York, got 25 years, with various wild animals wearing various hues of lipstick.

        I was going with the public humiliation, like when they used to pillory people.

          Do unto them as you would have them do unto you.

          Forgiveness can be as liberating for the accuser as it is for the accused.

          And sometimes, the shock and humiliation alone of being caught can be punishment enough and incentive enough to change someone's ways.

            You can't think of any?...Hunger/Starving family... an issue even in the wealthiest country in the world... good ole US of A

            Granted, one should not get away "scott free" for stealing food... but you'd chop off a mother's hand off for swiping a loaf of bread to feed her starving kids... ouch!

            Why would you have to steal it? Can't you just ask someone for the bread...if she did steal it I think she at least lose custody of the kids, maybe if she was motivated to then she'd have no problem feeding those kids

                      There is no reason for anyone to steal today.  We have over one hundred federal agencies handing out welfare benefits to anyone who asks and to many who don't ask but are forced to accept the aid.

                      If someone steals today, there is only one reason.  They want it but don't wish to work for it.

                      A thief not only steals a material item, he also steals a part of your life.  Those who work in order to obtain a material object have given up a part of their life.  A thief gives up nothing yet obtains what he wants. 

                      Allow the victim to decide the punishment.  If that be life in prison, amputation, or a fine, so be it.  And in case someone wishes to extend the argument  to the death penalty, then yes, even that, if the victim so decides.

                        Can the death penalty be administered execution style on the guy who sequinned my gas last night?

                          What?

                          I must admit I had to check the dictionary to make sure you were not making up words again.

                           

                          Are you siphoning your flatulance into plasitic bottles once again?

                          Perhaps you could give one to LonelyPug?

                              I'm not advocating a reason to steal without consequences or trying to justifying theft... more pointing out "punishment fitting the crime".

                              One poster stating cutting off limbs for stealing- period... no qualifiers.

                              If someone steals today, there is only one reason.  They want it but don't wish to work for it. 

                              I'll try a different example...

                              What if your 4 yr old kid gets caught swiping a pack of gum in the checkout line for the first time... you'd support the cop pulling a machete out in the parking lot and dismembering your child?

                              No... right? So, there's another reason... it's still theft.  Most likely the child had no concept of "working for it" etc.

                              And that's enough for me on this depressing, brutal topic... shouldn't have waded into this thread in the first place! LOL
