TheWhoppah: WhyteRaven74: TheWhoppah: Justice is, first and foremost, about revengeRevenge fixes nothing. Revenge is based on the idea a present action can undo a past action. Which it clearly can not. Or that having committed some wrong a person is deserving of an equal or worse wrong. Justice does not work that way.Thanks for your input Ghandi. Now run along back to Utopia and smoke a bong with Jesus. Like it or not, the human sense of justice is based squarely on revenge. You can see it in a group of toddlers... as soon as they can walk they begin dishing out their own revenge-based justice.
wesmon: Mock26: Dear Author, the United States also has a hell of a lot more people than all other developed nations. With that being said, what are the per capita comparisons to all the other countries?Troll or idiot?
Nutsac_Jim: 12349876: [www.wired.com image 660x369]Why is Russia not on this list?It's a lot easier to make the US figure look bad when you omit other countries that are close.Why not post the US vs the 4 lowest incarceration rates while you are at it.
Weaver95: lets just throw everyone into one giant open air, unregulated prison. how about Death Valley? we can isolate it easy enough. put in some basic infrastructure, like wells or whatever. wall it off, then take all our undesirables and throw 'em into the prison. once you go in, you don't get out. inside - anything goes. no rules, save you stay inside 'till you die. we can throw in men, women, kids, political prisoners, damn near anyone we want. just air drop supplies in on a random pattern at regular intervals.
