An eye for an eye. Am I the only one that thinks this should be the punishment for all crimes, or do you guys agree that if you do something, the same should be done to you?
If you kill someone, you die, if you rape someone, I think you get the point.

Depends on the circumstance. Some cases are too complicated for that.

I think the whole eye for an eye idea is just stupid imo...
Do you think you'd be happy in Iran where they chop off your hand if you steal something?
Even though I'm a great supporter of the death sentence, your idea of "justice" is too simplified and unrealistic... In an "eye for an eye" system (which exists in fundamentalist Muslim countries) the hand on the triger is too damn easy, and thus punishments are unreversable. Not to speak of circumstances which should play a big role when thinking of a proper punishment.
I think that the method in iran are quite effective. You steal, they chop of your hand. You steal one more time, they do it with your other hand, and then you cän't steal anymore.
I think that we should have a "Jugde Dred". that would be much more effective.
OK, from the bleeding heart liberal - I believe in rehabilitation. We just don't do it very well here in the states. I hate the waste of human potential.

One good thing about that way is that is sets the example of what will be done if you do something. The criminal will think twice if he knows he going to get raped too...
Prevention is better than cure
I think the real problem with society is that we have a culture where everyone is out to scam everyone else at all levels. Crime is just an extension of this where people are willing to risk prison to meet their selfish needs.
We need a societal evolution and part of me thinks it is indeed happening. And then the other part of me sees television shows like Jerry Springer and Benny Hinn infomercials and wonders WTF is wrong with people?
I'm sure nature will ensure that we find our destiny as a society, it will take time.
In the meantime, we need two things:
1. better determination of which criminals can be changed for the better and which can not
2. stiffer punishment for criminals
WTF is the world coming to when a thief who gets trapped in your garage trying to rob you can sue you for damages?!?!?
If the only thing you are holding is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
"the waste of human potential."
who needs human potential. we got way too many humans anyway (just a thought not my moral or something)
i dont really believe in that.. i mean its sounds good.. well if you kill someone you should die.. but then
the person who kills the murderer.. wouldnt they have to be killed too??.. i mean the line has to be drawn somewhere
an eye for an eye is too idealistic. I just took an Ethics class ( which I never thought I would use but hmm college classes can surprise you sometimes) Anyways we discussed this in my class and because this is a decision that is based more on emotion and upbringing rather than fact it is harder to say whether it is right or wrong. Because each person is entitled to their feelings it makes it difficult to say which way is honestly better, but I think that people need to be punished if they do wrong things, yet depending on the severity of the action should depend on the severity of the punishment... also not all rehabilitation works...
"The universe will expand and collapse back on it self and it expand again and it will repeat this process forever. What you don't know is that when when the universe expands again everything will be as it is now, whatever mistakes you make this time around you will live through on your next pass, every mistake you make you will live again and agian forever, so my adivce to you is to get it right this time around because this time is all you have"

rehab works if someone really wants to change. if they arent willing to do this at all it is a huge waste
"WTF is the world coming to when a thief who gets trapped in your garage trying to rob you can sue you for damages?!?!?"
that is just crazy i know
the whole world is messed up in so many ways
eye for an eye is too emotion-based. No important decisions should be based on emotion. It's a good concept but definately unpractical. And in certain cases it'd be cruel and unusual punishment. Cutting hand off for stealing is not eye for an eye. I think our justice system is pretty good as it is.
If you've been through the justice system then you'll know that it is pretty frusterating sometimes. Anyways, I think what Cack said was right on. Too often decisions are based upon emotions and not often thought out with the head.

"Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21
"I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"
