skozlaw: That does seem pretty stupid. Why bother even having them come to court if you're going to let them do that?
AverageAmericanGuy: The concepts of public shaming and revenge should be removed from the criminal justice system.Even the idea that a victim's family should have a front row seat at an execution is disgusting in a modern society.As timujin said above, the criminal should not be punished before he is found guilty, and even afterwards, he should still be treated with respect. I realize this is very different than what most Americans think, but they are wrong. Americans have reverted to pre-Enlightenment thinking, for the most part.
