Comment: Why bother serving sentence? (Score 4, Insightful) 149

The one thing I don't understand is why have him actually serve his sentence? Doesn't this just cost people more money in the end. It may be worth while to have him stay until he has re-payed the $1 million, assuming he even has the ability to re-pay the money but why not just deport him right away.

Did you read the comment? It specifically said that it would be okay if they leave option A and option B open to let people decide. That way you will be able to continue having your ad-free books and others, who wish not to pay or pay a lower fee can read their ad-laden books.

Ya seriously, I totally agree. This is not real world, it is junk science. Tasers have killed people. I think that is clear enough to say that they should be categorized as potentially lethal force. It doesn't matter if you are on meth, cocaine, have previous heart conditions or they just taze you 10 times.
