I'm glad judges aren't engineers.
Strangely, I am with 90% of the people .
Speed , rich or poor ...lose your vehicle for one month

Zero toys is the same punishment because it is measured by deprivation (time without toys) not by unit loss (value of items).
"It is only when men contemplate the greatness of God that they can come to realize their own inadequacy." Jean Calvin
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
You're right there's no objective unit value with toys - that's why we use time instead, no?Again, Loss does not equal punishment. Deprivation does. Toys have no inherent value, 10 toys could mean less to one boy than 1 toy to another, therefore there is no objective unit value.
If this was an analogy, why do you see it as a failed analogy?Convert the question to currency (earned), and apply to free adults and the question is answered differently.
