John Schiess on Crime

 


Pro-death penalty: shape up, ship out, or die

There are three things needed to insure a peaceful community: 1) a system of restitution to the victim, 2) a system of banishment, and 3) the death penalty. In short, a system of shape up, ship out, or die. This is a great three-step program.

As the old line in pioneer movies goes, "get off my land or I will shoot you". Now there's a real restraining order. But...lawyers won't make money that way!

We need a system of restitution & a system of banishment

Heaven forbid that I should refer to the same book that our country's Founders referred to most for ideas in structuring our government. But I, like them, looked to the Israelite system in the Bible. Let's look at those ideas again.
  1. A System of Restitution: Why should fines go to the government? Why not to the victim? The criminal was required to restore even four-fold the damages that he caused. If he would not do that, he could be banished from the community.

    We need a system of restitution & a system of banishment

    Where does the idea of restitution exist in our criminal system today?
  2. A System of Banishment: The criminal was not allowed back into the community until he was willing to make restitution. Why should we pay the penalty of warehousing them?
  3. A Death Penalty: I like Solomon's idea. He told a traitor he could live as long as he stayed in his home. The penalty was in his own hands, and of course, he blew it. When a person takes a life, he needs to make restitution with his own.
