Before i start i beg not to cherry pick and make up false assumptions and accusations like in the previous thread of mine which mecha locked for no logical reason. This issue was brought up many times but i do not believe in this side of the issue. Do you have any alternatives (to this two proposed examples, or other), possibly constructive methods. I read in a similar thread that forced labor was an option. If you think of, why not, returning something back to society isn't that bad really. Post your ideas. Picture if you had your country...what would you do in serious crime cases? EDIT: If you feel lost, give your ideas for crimes such as: -murder -rape -euthanasia (if it is a crime in your imaginary country, of course) -animal killing (same as above) -...any crimes that you'd get a high penalty nowadays... -...oh yea of course...terorism -religious extremism (if it is a crime, same as above) Edit#2: if you don't understand something i wrote please ask and don't imagine it. And no i'm not planning being a dictator, kill or hurt anyone. I was planning to have this debate on my previous thread before everybody went nuts and started throwing accusations and generalizations.
