    What does harsher equate to in real life? Can you be more specific? Do you mean that a jail sentence should be longer depending on the crime committed or are you saying 'Eye for an eye' stuff?

    I would like to offer my view on this.

    To make punishment equal to the offense should be a goal. What that means is a social decision. With that said the eye for an eye is in my view a good place to start.

    Of course, to take it literally cannot equal justice. If I poke somebodies eye out it causes some disability. If I have only one eye to take my remaining eye leaves me blind.

    That is not equal justice. Same goes for any other bodily injury. Is the injury due to malice or accident? That should make a difference or so methinks.

    Should there be punisment beyond making things equal and what should that be? That looks to me to be a societal decision.

    I just want to say that I've been reading Gilly's thread from its inception, what 6-7 or more years ago? and I want to thank her for some very interesting reading!

    I'm not ready to throw in my two cents on this present question--having been on the receiving and giving end of it. I will say that I am appalled and saddened at the lack of concern and feeling for atrocities that are so prevalent today.

    Yes, a heinous crime should be 25 years to life, and, if you kill me, mine (society) kill you! Simple. No need to spend $$$$$$$$$$$ on court costs!

    What if you/yours attacked me which resulted in their death?

    I don't know how to be any more clear. You said if someone kills you or yours, you/ yours remaining alive kill the killer. My question is; what if it's self-defense?

    You might say (and I'm sure you'd be correct in reality) that there's no way anyone of "mine" would ever do anything that would cause their death in any justifiable self-defense claim. Of course, from an objective legal perspective, you'd be considered to have prejudice regarding the case and why we need a court system.

    Has that legal system become expensive? Yes! But that capitalism for you and how the market works.

    I've never been so unfortunate as to get caught up in that system or been treated unfairly by it, but then, that's because my fortune is that I'm the right color and gender.

    It was not clear to me, thus the clarification. Of course it goes without having to say, the accused has to be guilty beyond the shadow of a doubt! Say like being caught in the act of a murder. Then in that case (society) kills that killer. Punishment to fit the crime!
