Though most Americans and Britons claim to despise Sharia Law and other forms of justice in the Islamic world, there are also calls to allow the
victims' family to meter out their own justice, and calls for harsher, crueler punishments in belief this will cause deterrence or just because of a
belief in reactive justice, which is exactly what Islamic justice is about.
Yet, the countries that do this also do things like honor killings of innocent women and punish victims as well as criminals in an attempt to
literally bury the crime in the past. Which to me, shows that reactive justice is not coming from good intentions, and is really a huge step back.
So what do you think? Do you prefer our system, the Sharia system, or do you dislike both?
