I see nothing sick with treating criminals with cruelty and brutality to discourage others from similar acts. If you ever saw a crippled wretch, as a result of his crimes, would you entertain similar actions? All of your "principles" and "morals" that go against the law would quickly evaporate. Society needs order and treating criminals with sympathy and kid gloves is not the way to go about achieving that order.
Yes, exactly. That's why the world is currently crime-free because everyone knows the consequences of their actions and thus do not commit any crimes. No one's getting murdered or ra.ped anymore. What a wonderful world indeed.
