Someone recently complained that there are not enough serious discussions in SF. So I'd likke to help out. Since jail time does not work in the U.S. for pedohiles, rapists and murderers (they are often let off too easy), do you think that perhaps public torture of said individuals would make a difference? They are often let back on the street and end up as repeat offenders and some are eventually executed via electrocution, gas chamber or lethal injection, all of which cause near instant death and is not really enough. Some countries have tried this throughout history and some have it now, but it's not severe enough. What I propose (just to see if it works, mind you) is that we take a few and make a "Reality Show" out of it. We take a few of them, hang them upside down by the ankles and cut off their testicles. Then a doctor nearby stops the bleeding and keeps them awake so that we can continue by skinning them alive and pouring acid all over their body. Boy would there be some screaming then!!! I'm not a sadist, but the punishment in this country for these crimes is not enough. They go to jail, work out with weights, watch tv, get some drugs and get 3 meals a day. So what will it be folks? I say torture the s**t out of a few of em every week on t.v, the internet and iphones so you can't miss it, for a few years and see how it affects the crime rate for pedophiles, rapists and murderers. I bet it would go down!!!!
