You know I'm all for the Death Penalty...but there is this AWESOME STORY, not sure what it is called...that REALLY makes you think.
Anyways...the basic plot of the story is this:
Two men are debating whether it is better to just kill someone, or to imprison them for their whole life. One of the guys was very wealthy or
something, and betted that serving a life sentence was NOT as bad as just being put to death, his reward if he survived would be A LOT of money, he
could leave at any time however.
So he goes through his ordeal, being imprisoned in some room of his own house, and basically it comes down to like the literal last year or so of the
agreed term of time, which was like 30 years, and the only real human contact he had was his friend coming by to feed him and such. Like normal
And it was like one more year and he caved and just left, not getting the money or anything, and when he wandered the streets and all everything was
SOOO different, and his house was all crumbly and destroyed and such.
Anyone else read this story? I'm sure I'm missing some points due to lack of full rememberance, so if anyone can remember it even better feel free
to tell the story
I think the 12 year sentence is too harsh, I'd probably sentence him to eating a raw dog having to skin it and de-fur it and everything, rather than
12 years of his life wasted. But it does say that he did some other stuff, so that's probably where the 12 years is coming from.
