So the VR set will come with an external stimuli suit that makes all the effects that seems real feel real. I think of this because most criminals that commit terrible crimes often take the way out suicide or is given the way out because of the death penalty. This will make them live and feel the pain that they inflicted on others but it will not be torture it will be justice because some live decent lives without any worry in prison but if they were forced to be virtually beat, raped, tortured, starved, terrorized and murdered like they did to other every day till the are driven insane and finally put down like the animals they are. There are some counter-arguments basically the exact some as ones for the death penalty. This is not for an average criminals they are for people like Charles Manson, Ariel Castro, Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy, Adam Lanza, Andrew Kehoe, Andrea Yates.

First I would like to say sorry for the wait I only log on during the weekdays unless I have a pressing matter to deal with. Well the incarcerated in the US is amazing high (about 0.91% of adults (1 in 110) in the U.S. resident population. Additionally, 4,751,400 adults in 2013 (1 in 51) were on probation or on parole. In total, 6,899,000 adults were under correctional supervision (probation, parole, jail, or prison) in 2013 " about 2.8% of adults (1 in 35) in the U.S. resident population). That is a high amount when some of these people could better society in may different fields. If people knew that the prison had the capability to perform that type of operation they will ensure that they will not do any particularly terrible crimes, because this time there will be true repercussions for their actions. 77 percent of felony defendants have at least one prior arrest and 69 percent have multiple prior arrests. 61 percent have at least one conviction and 49 percent have multiple convictions. So the benefits of people who are taking federal money to keep in prison could be out giving money to the federal government. (There will be way for if we had complete nation wide legalization but for another time)

In all I think a VR punishment is be a benefit to society ,because it will make people more fearful of committing crimes and more hesitant to go to jail/prison.
