I was watching Real TV the other day, They showed a court room where a guy was on trial for killing a man. The dead man's mother and family was there, then the killer said something about the guy he killed the mother about 70 jumped on the killer and tried to beat him up. He wasn't harmed but the mother got assult charges. Does that make sense to you? If you have kids or a wife, and someone killed them, then in court or in transport you shot the person that killed them, you would get murder charges. Are you going to kill again? No. There was a case in California about the three strike rule. A homeless man was caught three times for stealing. The things he stole were, food, a lighter, and batteries. Things he needed. He got 25 years. Why not put him in a job program? Get him back on his feet. Or get him on a food bank program? Does the five year old that brought his dad's gun to school after watching Cops and shots a classmate really need a life sentence? The way the Justice should work IHO: IQ level, Age level (under 13), Odds of a repeat crime. IQ Level: I don't think you should charge someone with Autism or Down syndrome the same as a person with a mature brain. A person with Down Syndrome is not going to know the consences or repercussions of their actions to the same extent as an adult with no mental problems. Age level: Just like IQ level, a young child isn't going to know the repercussinons of their actions the same way someone older than 10-13 would. Odds of a repeat crime: I think this is one of the most important. Is a dad that kills the man that killed his wife, going to commit murder again? Odds are no. What do you think should be done?
