The human misery and financial cost of crime is enormous and never in question.
Criminals always know when they are doing something illegal. We all know right from wrong.
Rich liberals will say ‘what about the wrongly convicted?’ and some will say ‘all crimes? Even shoplifting?’
A few legal mistakes would be the acceptable cost for a virtually crime free planet.
We are now evolved enough as a species that something must be done about crime. Just knowing that even the smallest of crimes could result in the
ultimate cost, would bring down crime in dramatic terms.
The benefits would be fantastic.
No more ‘no go’ areas.
More conscientious behaviour to fellow man.
No more organized crime.
Greater respect for law and justice.
All intelligent and law-abiding citizens will agree with me.

I'm intelligent and law abiding and I don't agree with you. Do you have any idea how many redundant and useless laws there are on the books that
fall under your definition of "breaking the law" that should be met with death?
The punishment should fit the crime. You try to shoplift $100 of merchandise from a store and get caught, they should take something of yours worth
$100. You steal something of more value that you in turn don't have to be taken from you? Hard Labor doing something that will benefit society.
You kill a person, you get killed.
Assult a person, you get the exact severity of the assult.
Rape a child, you get killed.
Rape a woman, you get killed.
Rape a man, you get killed.
Get caught speeding ( There ARE laws aginst that you know) pay the fine.
Get caught selling unpastuerized milk aross state lines ( There is a current thread about this) Change the law.
Get caught buying or selling a joint? Change the law. Mary Jane is a peaceful woman. Never hurt anyone.
Get caught in the manufacture, transportation, distribtion and/or sales of drugs such as heroin, coc aine and meth, get killed. Those drugs DO
hurt and kill people. Alot.
Get in your vehicle drunk, drive and run into somebody killing them, you get killed.There is no excuse for drunk driving. None.
Get in your vehicle drunk and get caught before you hurt anyone, get your licence revoked permenantly and every vehicle you have taken away.
Do away with the power that corporations have over the political stucture in America so that we the people can actually get things done that benefit
US, not them.
Change the legal structure in America so that when someone gets caught doing something against the law there isn't the red tape that stretches for 5
years before anything gets done. The whole proess of catching someone doing something illegal, finding them guilty and imposing whatever sentence they
deserve should take one day. At best. You want to save money in all this? Start there.
And last but not least, what do you call 100 lawyers on the bottom of the ocean?
A good start.
