Most authorities would cite overcrowding in prisons to be the main reason for early releaes, or shorter prison terms.
I think that if our justice system truly worked that Capitol Punishment should be brought back for the most heinous crimes.
But alas. the justice system is severely flawed. Note many convicted rapists and murderers having their convictions overturned, due to new DNA
evidence backing their claims of innocence.
And since our justice system is flawed by such things as law enforcement agencies, and prosecutors just trying to find someone to pin the blame on,
and not enough resources provided for a more detailed investigation, it will continue.
Our justice system needs a total overhaul, if it is ever going to convict the right perpetrators the first time.
And if that time ever comes, I think that the punishment should fit the crime.
Mass murderers, rapists, etc. should all recieve the death penalty, or at least never be able to be in public ever again.
