Throughout the world, many cultures have numerous ways of dealing punishment or penance to individuals that commit crimes against others. Some have extremely harsh measures (loss of a hand for stealing is one) to measures that are just ridiculous (low security prisons for prisoners who crimes are embezzlement and such.)
Now my point: are we as a country punishing those who commit crimes against others justly or injustly? Are criminals being released to early or to late? Are prisoners receiving to many “perks” for going to prison? Think about it, all prisons supply food and shelter, some form of entertainment, and some are even providing college educations that are being paid from our pockets.
Give me some of your ideals and thoughts on this situation, and if you want, toss in under-age crimes also for fun.
