Paul Bernardo. Multiple sexual assaults, abductions, tortures, and murders. He will be eligible for parole in 2020 after serving 25 years in prison.

Now if one were the soft hearted type who doesn't like killing vermin and thought prison were enough, I would still argue that this sentence wasn't enough for the least, single one of these charges. The effect of these types of assaults are life-long for the victims. Why should his sentence end during his life when their torment won't end in theirs?



I got your point. LAWS are not perfect neither is their implementation. Venegeance would do fine in such cases in your opinion?

Morality establishes itself in the very young, when minds are still innocednt, honest and trusting. This is why morality is much more in tune with justice.
Laws are the product of adult minds. Jaded, rationalizing, self-deceiving, greedy, fearful minds. This is why laws are out of tune with justice.



What according to you is justice?

"As pointless as it may be it still amuses the dog and the dog will chase it again, even if its been caught before."

Therefore it behooves the 'human individual' to NOT act like a dog.

Get in, cut throats, get out.

Avoid the endless debate (with self; with others) on the 'rightness' of 'this' or 'that'.

Be quiet, quick, direct, and minimal.

I'm guessing you don't let your dog on the couch?

Exactly what a dog would do, if it had opposable thumbs.

No debate as far as I see it; the law has a measure of rightness as long as I find it useful.
