So, you have someone who unrepentantly rapes, dismembers and possibly even eats little children. Don't make me look up serial killers, it's not hard to find someone this horrible. What do you suggest we do with them?
A) Let them free after X years.
B) Lock them in a tiny box for life.
C) Kill them.
Please feel free to explain your reasoning as to which option is most humane. Also, please assume that their next victim, should they be released will be you or someone you love. They will strike at a time you are unable to fight back.
a) should not happen
b) is what is done by civilised countries (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anders_Behring_Breivik for an example)
c) is done by barbarians (Saudi Arabia, North Korea, China, USA..... -- pretty cool list to be on, right guys? Human Rights FTW)
And don't get me started on when you find the wrong person guilty......
