The long arm of the law
Any touchy-feely liberal 'rehabilitation' is a complete waste of time compared with the effectiveness of two dozen with the cane and a day in the stocks:
Community spirit would be vastly improved if communities were able to gather in a public place and watch their town's thieves, vandals, adulterers, drunkards and other troublemakers get the living daylights thrashed out of them by ladies and gentlemen of good character. Communities should be able to come together to create their own traditions and ways of punishment, just like in the good old days:
Police constables should be retrained in the arts of paddling, strapping, birching and caning:
Fines would be much more effective if they were accompanied by a stinging bottom - a good spanking from a burly police officer would be a surefire way to stop louts in BMWs speeding through town:
Lawmen will find that corporal punishment is excellent at coercing confessions and making offenders face their guilt:
There should be no concern about coerced confessions - after all who would confess to a crime they didn't commit knowing that an even more serious (and public) flogging awaits them if they do?
This is particularly relevant for offences where further punishment is required to make an example of the offender. Better to thrash the wrong man than no man at all!
