If the purpose of prison should be reforming the criminal, as the Left so often says, and this was his first offense, and he is likely to not commit the crime again, then why put him in prison other than for punishment?


Does everything the Left says about prisons creating terrible prospects for felons who are "forced" to return to crime now become invalid?


Will they take responsibility for all the rapes he is "forced" to commit if he goes to prison?

He shouldn't be charged for murder your honor, the traumatic pain from the bullet wounds only made the victim go into cardiac arrest.

I'm done with this world...

That slope's so slippery it deserves it's own water park.

Being his first offense, there's a very real chance this kid won't be spending nearly as much time behind bars as would give the victim justice. The father needs a good kick in the balls, though.

Okay, what?





The premise of the thread seems to be, "The punishment doesn't fit the crime."



I am simply wondering if it DOES, according to one of the two mainstream political views in the country.

Because that is what the topic is literally about.


People saying the guy got off because of his race and money.


People debating political philosophies with differing views on crime and punishment.

I agree, which is why I think it is worth discussing why people can recognise it as such when it comes to this form of crime, but not others.

It's not exactly about whether you're a democrat or Republican though.

I mean, would you seriously be okay if this guy raped your daughter?

First, not everything is about politics.

Second, not everyone left of center sees the justice system this way. You are generalizing, creating an argument out of nothing, and assigning sides and values to arbitrarily fit your own beliefs. To make it worse, it's not even a strong or coherent argument as you state it.
