i think vlad dracula, the historical guy had whats in mind. a stick up the derrier hitting no vitals comin out the mouth. 2 days of horror. or, lets implement the iron maiden again. strategically placed spikes so the perpetrator in the tomb would not die for quite a while. there ya go, new cool fad/old fad punishment. like all the movie remakes nowadays.



I think "a grip" needs to be got here....sort of veering off topic aren't you?

i was being sarcastic. come on now. you actually think i mean all that?

Actually there was a Star Trek TNG episode that dealt with a planet with a similar legal system.....
As with all important matters of philosophy, Star Trek The Next Generation shall show you the folly in your logic.

You have completely lost your marbles my friend. With your doctrine, when a friend of mine as a kid shoved gold rush bubble gum down my pocket as we were walking out of the drug store (at that point I could not remove it) and we were both arrested, I should have been put to death? You should move to Saudi Arabia where they only chop off your hand for stealing. Liberalism in your opinion?

With that being said, all child molesters, home invasion murderers and pre-meditated ruthless killers should be executed with only one prior appeal. Just in case you didn't understand my position on capital punishment.

Honestly, I'm surprised so few people have cried out "Troll!" as that's exactly what this is. I guess the OP really has done a great job.

I'll outline my reasoning with my inferences of his/her own words.

The first clue was the blatant contradiction in the first post:


Let me state my case: Crime is blight upon our planet and a gross embarrassment to the innocent and blameless. All crime should be met with capital punishment.

Rich liberals will say ‘what about the wrongly convicted?’ and some will say ‘all crimes? Even shoplifting?’

Yes.



That's an obvious contradiction, and I should have stopped reading there. Unfortunately, the second clue is not-so-cleverly disguised in the same few paragraphs. I'm sure most of everyone noticed "rich liberals". That was obvious baiting. It wasn't even original.

The next clue is the following quote, which many of you have addressed specifically.


All intelligent and law-abiding citizens will agree with me.


Now, I'll admit, it's possible at this point for the OP to actually be this ignorant. Because of this, I decided to read through the rest of the thread. After a while of seeing angry reply after angry reply, I decided to seek out the OP's responses to all of your replies. This is what struck me next:


Some of your replies have been helpful and I am willing to evolve my theory a little bit.

For criminals aged 18 plus.


Come on. After all of the logical replies about the faults of this theory(it's not a theory; this is a troll thread), the OP looked to be coming around. Again, that was his/her intention. He/she was teasing you with a bit of logic, then decided to ruin it with the last sentence of the post.

The next clue(this is getting tiring; how did most of you not see all of this?):


I believe the smarter amongst you can see the merit in this theory


Again, the OP talks about the idea that if one is intelligent, one is on his/her side. The OP is not this delusional, people.

The final clue I give you is the following, and complied with every other clue, should finally bring you to your destination. The OP is a troll; this is a troll thread; it needs to be deleted.


I never expected liberals to give proper and considered replies to this provocative and interesting thread. I did expect kneejerk repsosnes; some of you clearly never read and thought about my initial post.

What might the victims of crime think about your heartless replies?


The OP admits to putting thought into his/her liberal comment. That's the only proof I need to decide that this is a troll thread, but the OP admits to trolling a second time with the statement about expecting knee-jerk responses. Then, just to lather the faux-ignorance on even more, the OP makes a statement designed to evoke emotion.

So, in conclusion, I'm going to say what needs to be said and leave.

DO NOT FEED THE TROLL.

Whats funny about this thread is that the OP claims there would be less murder in his/her world with all crimes punished by death.

Well what exactly qualifies as murder? How about killing someone just because they made a mistake and drove a few miles over the speed limit. Would you consider that murder?

Less murder my ass.

It seems to me that with these principals murder would go way up!

Also, people would become so scared. It would be hell to go through something like the OP is describing. Waking up every day not knowing if you will accidently commit a crime you didn't even know about and be sent to death because of it?

Make everything legal so there is no crime, and then perhaps it might work.

All you parrots think its so clever to call someone a troll.

I think the idea has potential. I like the samurai. If you dishonour a samurai he will remove your head. All you rude jerks would be headless in a society run by samurai. There would also be alot less crime because we would not have laws that protect rapists and murderers and criminals.

You are all weak.

You are all cowards.

You are all uninspired and predictable and obvious. So clever to call someone a troll

Know what? I undertand why you feel the way that you do. I once was misled and only believed that ruthlessness and violence was the only answer to evil preying on the weak. However, You're at a lost my friend, you have allowed the evils of the world to completely stomp out any humanity within you. You must not have any children I bet eh? Yeah, I understand.

Just so you know, I want death to anyone who ruthlessly kills any humanbeing. Anyone who hurts a child, = Death. Accidents are another story, and deserve a manslaughter sentence.

I do understand your disgust with our system because I am equally disgusted as well. We live in a world where the innocent suffer, while evil gets internet porn and cable tv inside their cell. ~SheopleNation

i wonder if i might be clever enough to state that death to all deemed illegal is a gross emberassment to the human race. were here to evolve. not devolve. evolution is spiritual and means understanding beyond this realm. ie, punishment will come from balance. this life isnt the only one you live. you balance your deeds out through living many lives towards ultimate knowledge. you may have killed a whole family in your past life. that could account for this life being so crappy. or, you could have helped a nation. that yould account for a happy fulfilled life. i definitely do not hold the power of life and death and neither do any of you. so help yourselves and you will help others in the process. no death, no capital punishment, just equality and universally conscious decisions. we are not evolved enough to hold these decisions. especially the op because by his logic. were all dead by the age of five.

Maybe everyone replying to this thread is so ridiculous and you are super clever. You can hop in your time machine and go back to pre-industrial Japan and live by the Samurai! Then, anyone who disrespects the Samurai can get their head chopped off and all will be right with the world. LOL You are talking trash to people for calling the OP a troll, and your off on a tangent about Samurais. Don't worry, I got a good laugh off you.

If every crime was punishable by death, then every single person on this planet is guilty and would be killed. Anyone who says they've never done anything wrong is a liar. No one's perfect.

What is an embarrassment is that society carries the weak. That society has encouraged devolution.

Are you some kind of monk or something? You have slave morality.

edit- And who said my life was crappy? Does one need to have a crappy life to have a social conscience? Thats what many morons will tell OWS supporters. "oh they must be so miserable or they would have nothing to complain about" That kinda thinking shows flawed logic and so does what you imply. You think that because I have the opinion that society is far to sentimental about the value of human life that my life is crappy/ Thats just silly.

Make sure you dont step on an ant now. It may be bad for your karma. just stay still and dont move and you should be cool

you must have just perused my comment. i didnt say your life is crappy. stepping on a friggin ant aint gonna do you in with karma. but yes, i believe you might be one of those "complainers" simply because you want to be noticed. my message is, be peaceful and you might make a difference. im tired of the fighting and hate. ive done enough of it and THATS WHERE I LEARNED. im a vet, i know about violence and war. just be peaceful. theres too much violence in this world, thats why were talking now. so what do you do with violence? definitely dont make more of it. do the opposite, be peaceful. opposite action tends to generate opposite results. like the flawed paradigm, fight fire with fire. if you do that, you make a bigger fire, duhh.

I think people like you should be put to death. You are lacking something to think such a thing, and are basically saying you would kill innocent people. What makes something right or wrong? Your opinion? The opinion of many? Just cause its the law does not make it right. Specially in this day and age where we have corrupt leaders bending the laws to create profit for themselves. You are trying to find an answer for a perfect world which is not possible. Constituting the death of Innocent people will surely not make this world any better. Think of how many angry families there would be because you decided to kill their 12 year old son for stealing some candy from a store. In the end your crazy little theory would just cause way more problems then it solves. In the end it wouldn't matter what age they were. No ones family would let you kill them for stupid reasons.

If you killed every criminal today, that would not get rid of all criminals. There is no criminal gene.

If you killed every criminal every day for the next 100 years, that would not get rid of all criminals.

I believe evolution, along with refining of laws, might some day lead to a point where no one commits crime, but that will take a loooong time.

People become criminals because of their environment and upbringing. So until you find a way to make everyone's life so great that they have no reason to commit a crime, then you fail.

Oh, that or you can feed us all fluoride until we're completely docile.

I hope this is sarcasm or something, because you clearly are making some kind of assumption that there are criminals and non-criminals, and nothing in between and a person can never switch between groups.

I believe that in some of your theories, but your idea that everyone has to just love eachother, and that means that we must love evil human beings and give them a break is an absolute joke. Look at life on this planet, and tell me what you see? Your FEEL GOOD theory is a nice one, but the truth of the matter is that this planet is a ruthless battle betwen the strong and the weak. Also everything in between as well obviously.

We all would like a World like that, but it's not reality my friend. ~SheopleNation

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?’

Yes.

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.
Less murder.
More conscientious behaviour to fellow man.
No more organized crime.
Greater respect for law and justice.
Happier citizens.


All intelligent and law-abiding citizens will agree with me.
