I couldn't find this topic in the search feature, but this "has" to have come up at some point in CT. Saw just a few minutes of something, think it was on Discovery, or National Geographic this morning early...roughly 5:30am. Concerned a place in Texas, with a judge by the last name Poe. Like I said, I didn't see much of it, but it was interesting. The judge handed down punishment to fit the crime, with community embarrassment as one method. For example, some guy was DWI, hit another car at over 100mph, and killed two of the three people in the car. The judge required a number of things, among them that the guy had to carry a sign along a major highway, at various times, for ten years, with the sign telling what he had done. From what they were saying, the people that came before the judge had a very low percentage of ever breaking the law again. And after seeing the looks of some of the people on the highway, I can understand why. His probation officer would go at certain times, just to protect the guy. Perhaps I'm just thinking this is good because I want to see more justice dealt as was done in earlier centuries, both here and abroad. But from a law enforcement perspective, do you guys think this is the way punishment should be given, and therefore, make the bad guy, and possibly others think twice, prior to committing the crime? It's of course not a novel way of providing justice, but I like the idea, I really do. And I have to admit, it appeals to my sense of retribution....and vengeance.
