Punishment

I am glad they executed Saddam. He was a brutal killer and a cancer in society. If you have cancer, what do you do? You have it surgically removed or it will infest your entire body and you will die. The same applies to Saddam, the longer he lived, the more lives would be lost.

We could learn a lesson from the new Iraqi government. It only took them 14 months to carry out the execution order but it takes us 20 to 25 years.

I think our entire penal system is broken. Many criminals know they will not get sentenced because our jails and prisons are overcrowded, or they are glad to go back inside to be with their families and friends. It’s like a respite for them. They get better accomodations than our military and I think that is completely wrong. It is an insult to say the least. It is rarely a deterrent anymore, but it would be if I were in charge.

I would check with a nutritionist and meet the required daily minimums regarding their meals, and I would serve them they same meals everyday for several months at a time. They would only be let out in the yard once a week.
Overcrowding would be acceptable. No TV of any kind, no recreation and definitely no college degrees for free. There would be electrified fencing around the farm. The farm where they grow their own food. No beds, just thin mattresses. Visitors on their birthdays and Christmas only. Never any conjugal visits. Solitary confinement for any infraction of the rules.

It would no longer be Home Sweet Home!

I would make it feel very uncomfortable and very unpleasant, so it would remind the criminals it is a punishment.
We must clean up our society so decent people can live in safety and have some peace of mind. We have allowed the worst of society dominate the culture for too long. Anyone who doesn’t like our rules has the freedom to leave this country and live elsewhere.

    Agree with the harsh conditions but only for “hardened criminals.” I do ministry here in a Federal prison where for the last 7 years I’ve seen inmates rehabilitated and made better people. The percentage is low but well worth the effort. Some folks with a little hope and assistance can turn their lives around, while the majority take advantage of the system and stay the same or become worse.

    I don’t like the death penalty because it does not deter criminals. Maybe if the sentence was carried out the next day, that might work better. I would prefer life at hard labor. Thinking you might have to bust rocks 6 days a week for the rest of your life with no TV, radio or other entertainment, might deter many of these types.

    cumby, I admire you for having the courage to minister to our criminal element. I am sure it is not the safest venture you could have chosen. Thank you for your dedication to help save souls and help improve man’s mindset on how to live a better life. I should have gone into a little more detail in my original posting.

    I too, agree with the hard labor aspect as a better punishment for the hardened criminals. The death penalty should be reserved for the hideous acts of barbarism committed by those like Manson, etc. They have no remorse and never will. A swift and permanent punishment like the death penalty would be appropriate for these type of vermin.

    White collar criminals, many who are wealthy, should face the humbling stature of poverty. All of their personal assests should be sold to cover their cost of incarceration and to pay their victims monetary damages.

    Thanks for the kind comments! It’s odd but I never feel fear when entering the prison. The drive on the way over there and home is another story. The safest place to be is in the will of God, doing what you are told to do. No one will kill me until I’ve finished the work assigned to me. So it was with Jesus and so it is with His children.
