    ok, see that's going way too far. We already complain that TV and video games, a large portion of fiction, are too violent. We have boxing, ufc, (pro. wrestling...), don't we have enough violence in our society already? It's a step back, romans were advanced for their time, but that doesn't mean we should emulate everything they did. They did fall after all. Public execution is something that should be read in history books, not something we practice. And what about appeals? Cases overturned? Our justice system is not fast, what if we sent a man to death who was innocent? The idea is barbaric and backwards, I'm sorry, I see no real advantages to public execution or this gladiator nonsense.

    'An eye for an eye will make the whole world blind.'
    That's what Mahatma Gandhi remarked, and I think he's completely right. With that philosophy in mind, you won't come far.

    Sodomizing and publicly executing criminals sounds stupid to me. It would just add to the hate ... And we wouldn't be much better than them. Especially if we would start to pay for it. We'd watch somebody dying for fun. Gross. Just the most psychopathic killers kill for simple joy.
    Dark. said it right. Society is violent enough, letting them watch those things would probably have the contrary effect. The inhibition threshold for violence recedes if you'll see criminals publicly executed all the time ...
    In the end, it was used quite often in the past, but did it really help that much? At first wannabe criminals might be frightened, however after some time, people wouldn't care either way I guess.
    You are now breathing manually. :P

    I agree with Lapi. Humans are very stubborn creatures, therefore it would not matter for a minority of people to get some form of public punishment/humiliation as they would simply would not care.

    Also you have to take this one very important point into consideration: What if the person is wrongly accused of a crime? What if a person of a group of people are unjustly framed for an act they did not have any relation to?
    And when they do get a public punishment/humiliation, they would be mentally scarred, or if not, their reputation would be tarnished and their image [almost] permanently severed.

    And, in my opinion, today's society is more judgemental than it has been before. So even if a person is innocent, people would still judge that person, and would turn a blind eye on him.

    Furthermrore, I have seen how hellish a prison life is. It brakes you mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
    Not to mention they monitor your every moment, there is no privacy even if use the toilet.
    Although recently, there have been some prisons where the inmates are getting education, they learn about the rights and wrongs and there is an opportunity for them to make a better future for themselves.

    Me, I think for the "stubborn" minority who choose to ignore the laws, should recieve treatments like prisoners do in the jails of India and south east Asia.

    Re: Public Execution In America

    theres a prison in Texas where the warden forces the inmates to
    wear pink uniforms and watch educational things treating them like kids
    pretty much and from what i have heard the crime rate where the prison is
    located the crime rate is low im not saying its a cure all but why not try
    this but with more brutal methods.

    like having sleep deprivation and other methods that are pretty harsh
    OK maybe not sleep but cut them off from everyone and everything
    making sure they have no rights what so ever and if they complain
    ignore them , or one of my favorite ideas which i heard from someone
    turn a couple of states into giant free roaming prisons.

    don't give them anything but the cloths on there back and just let them
    kill each other off or something its far fetched by its sounds pretty good
    to me and put it on pay per view so you can see how miserable they are
    as they beg and scrounge for what ever they need .

    this is just my idea but i cant think of a better way these few i have
    mentioned
    I'll be the one to protect you from your enemies and all your demons
    I'll be the one to protect you from a will to survive and a voice of reason
    I'll be the one to protect you from your enemies and your choices son
    They're one in the same, I must isolate you...
    Isolate and save you from yourself

    Law wants to put it's point across that if they go against it like for criminal offenses then capital punishment is due. I mean not all criminals say sorry i will not do it again. Some get a parole and repeatedly do crimes. if the only way to protect the productive society is to do capital punishment then governments will put it's point or message across and do what it must. Remember govenrments not only protect the constitution but mainly the citizens of it's country.

    True, how ever that would make it a nation wide law, most of the time a law that is on matters such as this is usually left to the states who which in turn allow the people to decide, in which case many are against because they believe it to be "wrong" or "bad" despite the fact that many of those incarcerated really do not deserve to live do to how dangerous they are to society, murderers, rapist, molesters, those sort of criminals.

    What I find funny is that people get all hot and bothered about hearing, convicted murderer John Doe gets released from prison and say they should throw away the key with these sort of criminals and should be done away with despite the fact it was they them selves and people like said person who wanted to make it so they get a second chance, as well as removing any punishment with in the walls of the prison that discourage the continuation of violent acts because they find it not nice. Or, I love how people say "Yeah the man/women is reformed" but then are all shocked to find out a week later that they are up to their bad habits again.

    I agree with you. People who have sex with there pets or little boys should be killed. And, let there families watch how much there family member is such a fool and go around and have sex with cats and little kids.


    I know It seems kinda harsh of me saying this but, psh. There not my problem. Let them die. And, let them suffer. There the ones who messed up in there life.

    And, people who go randomly killing people think it's so much fun because, it relieves there stress and anger and they have to go around and kill people that they don't even know. It seems so stupid... And, yes, yes , yes and MORE YES. People should get killed publicly.

    If memory serves, that's all the continent of australia was before people civilized it.

    I like that idea, Holder!
