So is it your devout belief in god and strict adherence to the bible that prompts your support of cutting parts of people off, or a strict conservatism that constantly bitches for a smaller state that emboldens you to support such state power?
first off... let not bring religion into this.. has nothing to do with this... secondly, states already have powers to enforce punishment( jail time. community service, etc.) so you wouldnt be giving them any more powers..
and you act like the people i am talking about are pure, law abiding,hard working individuals who will be subjected to this form of punishment.
ill give you an example from my own personal experience. i had a good friend get mugged outside of a gas station and was shot in the chest( he survived barely)..the criminal was apprehended about and hour later. it was caught on video surveillance and my friend was also able to ID the guy... he received a 12 yr sentence and is eligible for parole after 8...
my alternative would be to amputate both arms at the elbows.. he would never shoot anyone again and it wouldnt cost tax payers anything..
what is so wrong about that? does this CRIMINAL who acted inhumanely deserve to be treated humanely... the correct answer is NO. you give up that right when you commit such acts
