I do not care if any of this is a supposed deterrent or not.
I see it as a just punishment and the United States should follow suit. But of course we won't. Noooo, can't do that now, can we!
I just find it amazing that as the most violent society in the Free World -both men AND women- that we always want to whine about Cruel and/or Unusual Punishment and yet as a Nation we are always talking about how just we are.
We aren't just. What we are is self-serving on when real justice is served and it's never for the little guy/gal.
These people now have the tools to deal with these POS's and hopefully they fully implement and use it.
