Should punishment be greater than the crime committed?

Asked by: Smithereens
  • Compensation, Justice, punishment.

    A criminal that is being punished for a crime is usually being enacted with an equivalent exchange. However, this does not factor in that the victim did not want to be the target of the crime, the punishment must be equal, plus a little extra for inflicting their crime on the other party.

  • An act of bravery, a story of misery.

    The punishment must be greater than the crime done. The crime not only affects the victim, but also the victim's family. The punishment should never be less than the crime created so that the same crime will not be repeated by anybody else under any circumstance. This will teach the right lesson for all such conspirators. Rules must be rigid.

  • If you know your punishment is that bad would you do it in the first place?

    Yes the punishment for a crime committed should be extremely harsh. If you know that your punishment is that bad it may prevent you from doing it in the first place. One would think if w they are about to do is really worth such a harsh punishment. Other countries punish you severely for talking about their government, we should adopt that we punish sever for regular crimes committed.

  • You Know What You Are Getting In Too

    If we had a system where committing any crime made you eligible for a harsh and universal punishment people wouldn't commit those small crimes. I know what is expected of me as a citizen and they should too. Stabbing or shooting somebody during a robbery isn't a crime that gets you second chance and should have just one punishment so everyone knows what they are signing up for.

  • Punishment is outdated at times.

    Instead of going eye for an eye, perhaps we should be focusing on rehabilitating criminals. Many prisons have work programs in place to allow prisoners to learn a trade, that way when they re-enter society, they have a means other than crime to support themselves. We've been punishing criminals for the last 100,000 years, it hasn't stopped crime and it probably never will.

  • Punishments should not exceed the crime.

    Punishment should never be greater than the crime committed. Some criminals do not even do something that terrible, but can end up in prison for 10 plus years. That does not seem just or fair to me. The punishment should be focused on making them repent for their crimes, and get help to not feel the need to do those crimes any longer.

  • Eye for an eye.

    Punishments should be equivalent to the crimes committed. If someone murders another person, I believe they should have to face the same as what was imposed on the victim. There are many times when murderers torture their victims and yet our death penalty gives them a painless death. I do not think that they deserve such treatment because they did not care if their victims were in pain.
