Is it normal that I feel this way about punishment?

So, I see people all over the internet wishing that horrible acts of violence and humiliation would be performed on the scum of society.

I personally feel that torture is distasteful, and a waste of time and tax money. I like quick clean deaths no matter what the person has done.

Just shoot them and be done with it; there's no need to keep trash that cannot be rehabilitated alive on the face of the Earth for a second longer than necessary.

Is It Normal?
Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • Who and where is the arbiter?

    That has been sorely lacking. [Careful].

  • Would totally agree with you but... what about the wrongfully accused?

    • The wrongfully accused shouldn't be punished at all, with jail or torture or death or fines or anything. Clearly the wrongfully accused aren't what he's calling "scum of society".

      • Who determines that? What is the definition of "scum of society"? Murderers? Rapists? Thieves? Do you have any idea how many people have been wrongfully accused (and wrongfully convicted) of these crimes? These are the reasons we don't just kill people.

        • Murderers and rapists, yeah.

          "These are the reasons we don't just kill people."

          But we DO imprison them, though. If we're convinced of someone's crime enough to put them in prison, then we should be convinced enough to kill them. If we're NOT convinced enough to kill them for their actions, then we shouldn't be imprisoning them either.

          • I agree. But the problem is, innocent people are sent to prison all the time. Then your saying "Well they got sent to prison so they must be guilty. Kill them all." Forget the numerous people who have been exonerated by modern forensics. Your frame of thinking is why the inquisition was so horrifying.

            • That really isn't what I was saying. I actually don't have that much faith in the judicial system, but that's not the point. The point was, I agree that PROVEN murderers and rapists deserve execution.

  • Well first start with yourself and we'll take over from there.

  • I hereby rule your post is inciting violence. Since you are now considered trash that cannot be rehabilitated, and since it doesn't matter what you have done, I hereby sentence you to death. Report to your execution immediately.
