    I think we need to work on reforming criminals because we mine as well try to do something with them other than have them waste away in cells.

    Hard labor.
    Chain gangs.
    Picking up trash on the side of the highway.
    "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

    Re: Is the law too soft on criminals?

    Anyone who thinks that federal and state laws are by and large "soft" on crime has never worked within the legal system.

    I'm as much of a Law and Order Republican as you can get, and I still recognize that the vast majority of crimes are subject to absolutely absurd sentences.

    It's always front page news when some convicted pedophile gets out after 5 years and rapes another kid, but you never hear about the 40 other guys who are serving 60 month sentences for this:

    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
