Fuck, we just need to bring public caning back, or hack parts of limbs off. Those have to be for heinous things though like theft that causes damages of $5,000 or more (cane them for less). Take two fingers each time. Figure if someone can't figure out after five tries, they really don't enjoy having functional hands, and eating. Figure after the first time it'll just stop. People who steal stuff like copper won't be served by MORE education. They are out of the K-12 educational system by then, and generally methed outa their head.
