    Sounds like the validation and propagation of more hate, more allowing emotions to control justice and good judgement, vengeance....

    IMO it's an immature, reactive response to individuals who acted the same way. So...we'd end up no better than they are. Worse actually...desiring to dismember a person for stealing.

    Well, it is on the milder side, but it would be a suitable punishment for telemarketers who contact people on the do-not-call list.

For some people the punishment should be to get their entire arm or arms cut off at the shoulder(s).
    Then how would they make a living? I believe in tough sentencing but they will get out eventually (unless they are in for life w/out parole or the death penalty), they have to be able to support themselves. Or would you be okay w/ them getting disability benefits for the rest of their lives?

    The Left accepts this though. Not only accepts it, but claims it to be a right.

    Just as barbaric as lopping off libs off criminals, except in this case their is not trial.
    Why are you bringing abortion into it?

    One does wonder what crimes the unborn are capable of/have committed. And to consider it a punishment for something with no awareness nor suffering.

    Perhaps there was an inability to overcome blind dogma to examine reality when that response was made?

    You have provided a lock solid argument in favor of the ban.
    You would be mortified if you knew what the founders supported. They, in fact, fully supported corporal punishment which included a wide variety of maiming and brutal contraptions such as the scold’s bridle.

    Incarceration has turned out to be a very poor deterrent for crime. Modern punishment should include things like stripping offenders of eligibility to receive public assistance. If the punishment for stomping somebody’s head in is amputation of their legs then it should also include denial of public assistance. I don’t care how or if they manage to make a living.

    I do. I don't want my house broken into by people who can't get public assistance and who cannot work.

    Incarceration has to be miserable for the inmate for it to be a deterrant. It isn't nowadays.
