    Uh, that certainly is a horrible picture you conjure. Your idea of "justice" sounds a lot like vengeance - like Hammurabi's Code of 'an eye for an eye' when deciding how to punish someone. Also, I think that people like that would enjoy being "raped" like that.

    No, trust me; going to jail, pretty much for life - that is what really sucks.

    "Vengeance" is at odds with modern thought. It does share aspects with Justice, but it still distinct from Justice, who's ultimate concern is to balance the scales as evenly as it can.

    I am in more favor of "jail for life" than death penalty, simply because everyone dies what's the difference if a convict died sooner. Besides I don't think anyone has the right to claim another human life. I agree with most of the posts here, death penalty seems more like an act of vengeance than justice.
