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.
I am having trouble understanding your post....The world is not crime free at the moment precisely because criminals are treated with kids gloves. If a rapist or a murderer knew he'd get tortured and brutalized if he gets caught instead of councelling and community service do you think he'd have more or less incentive to commit crimes?
