We need people to see more of this stuff happen.
One of the many flaws in our system is that there isn't really any consequences for your actions anymore. I think if even petty crimes had what we would consider these days as overly harsh punishments a lot of this bullshit would stop. No more minimum security prisons, probation, life sentences, etc... Hard labor and the death penalty is all we need.
You steal something you go to a hard labor prison camp where you work your ass off for a nickel an hour until your victim, legal system, and state are all paid off. Then we talk about your release.
I'm sick of the notion that child predators, rapists, and severely violent criminals can be "rehabilitated." It's bullshit. If you harm your fellow human beings several times, you don't belong among us regardless of it is in a prison or not. Off 'em.
