Until next election when the opposition pledges new penalties to appease the crowd... and again... and again... until the people get what they feel is "justice," even though it is not truly justice. Admittedly, outlawry is not justice, but at least the condemned are kept alive (for now), ...

Shmakova debated on where to go. "Do I want to stop at Frederick's Fries? Or should I go to a local coffee shop?" she thought. Part of her wanted to go to Frederick's Fries: she had never tasted it in its home country of Pavonistade, and she wondered if the quality of Frederick's Fries was...

Perhaps. But the state won't really kill the person. The people can just be informed of the outlaw, and assuming that they're not in the middle of bumfuck nowhere, the mob will take care of them. :lol2: I'm sorry, but that by itself is so amusing that it is going to the Awesome quotes thread as soo...

2) For some vile crimes, we have a gut instinct to demand punishment, no matter if they're based on evidence or not. Outlawry recognizes that certain acts are so severe that no other means of punishment can be proportional to the crime, especially if that person was of sound mind at the time he com...

I can think of two good reasons: 1) The state would not need to provide the death penalty, so the state can still boast that they do not execute people. An irrelevant distinction to anyone with a shred of intellectual honesty. Perhaps. But the state won't really kill the person. The people can just...

Not if we just stripped the convict of all legal protection and made him or her an outlaw. (Assuming this is in response to the costing): How often do you want to do that to innocent people? There's a reason we put so much effort into keeping people alive in jails. Also, literally forcing people to...

You do have a point there. But I think the fear of being cast out of society entirely, and being killed by a lynch mob would probably deter some criminals. Not all, but some. Again: deterrent effects do not scale with severity above a fairly low threshold. Because there's no possible way that peopl...

There are two ways that some criminals are impossible to rehabilitate. Type A Suppose we have a criminal. Let's call him O. O kidnaps a person that we call V. V is tortured for a long amount of time and subject to unimaginable abuse. Then when the police attempt to rescue V, O kills V. Now, suppose...

Pretty much this, for the most part. In regards to the bolded point (that I have bolded), does this include crimes that are so grave that just being charged with them basically causes the public to assume you are guilty until proven otherwise? That even if they are acquitted or could theoretically ...

I think capital punishment is unjust in almost any circumstance. It sets a precedent that it is unjust for an individual to commit murder, but it is just for the state to do so. That said, I'm not going to put rhetoric ahead of practicality. I think that we should invest in rehabilitating prisoners...

Exactly.
