Punishments must fit crimes


It is my opinion that these days we actually welcome having crime.


It is my opinion that these days we actually welcome having crime.

In fact, we encourage it in some form or another. We look forward to hearing about it on the TV. After all, if it wasn’t there, how boring our lives would be. We would talk more about the weather, I suppose.

Crime generally happens to other people and so, if it doesn’t affect us personally, we don’t really care about it and what effect it will have.

We have police forces that we say we support, but we emasculate them when they do their jobs for us and are attacked by the bleeding hearts and so-called “civilized people” as overzealous and brutal. The media is good at doing this and the bad guys are winning slowly but surely.

I believe actions have consequences, and all illegal actions should have punishments that suit the crimes.

I believe the only innocents are children under age six. All citizens older than this are aware of the rules of society and which rules should not be broken. All should be aware of the consequences.

I believe that where a life is taken willfully – premeditated homicide, terrorism, hijacking, armed robbery, treason – the death penalty is a suitable punishment for the crime.

These scum do not deserve our sympathy and should not be allowed to carry on breathing. Any form of execution is acceptable to me.
