    Actually, Joona, the death penalty is not completely abolished, and even when it was and where it was it was abolished by a majority of Americans. That's how we roll. Oh..and torture? That was abolished by all civilized countries in a little document called "The Geneva Conventions."

    We need stronger measures against criminals!

    Perhaps, but we will never sink to their level to punish them. To commit criminal actions to punish criminals to to become a criminal.

    I say yes! A thief should not be considered a human being. A thief is a former human being that degenerated himself into an animal!

    We must show no mercy to thieves! Amputation for theft works well in Saudi-Arabia, so it can work in the western states too!!!
    Your position allows no flexibility for mitigating circumstances and no consideration for possible mistakes and is therefore unacceptable in a civilised society.

    I thought we were just inflicting pain on them then letting them go.

    If circumstances warrant it and it applies equally I think that a tattoo would do nicely. A "T" on the forehead. Just so everybody knows who they're dealing with.

    The important ethics and humanitarian issues aside, wouldn't the loss of a limb make it more difficult to find future gainful employment, particularly among those who provide manual labor or work as artisans? If so, it's going to provide more incentive to return to crime as a viable alternative.

    No, no - you don't get the big picture.

    You've written this one off as sub-human trash, the amputation is so that he can walk around as a visible deterrent to those who remain and, as such, the worse his plight is the better the deterrent.

    Well then I'm all for it.
