    From what kind of crime(s) would you not incarcerate a person? And what would you do instead? Who would you not put in jail? And what would be an alternative for them?

    For example.. Do prostitutes deserve jail time, although illegal in most states? Or is there a deeper underlining issue that should be addressed?

    white people love cages

    I would contend jail is an extension of their craziness

    all because we can't handle their crazed euro-psycho mindset

    and jail is apart of that mindset

    the REAL criminal NEVER goes to jail

    where i'm a going with this

    why in amerikkka do we have the highest incarceration of the "free" world?

    all i see is human waste when is comes to jail

    why is there no "system" to help people live you know live life but we live

    is a retarded matrix always looking for the quick fix (i.e. something happens

    bad happens "GOD" did it or they make a law as so not to really fix a problem

    this system needs to be redesigned

    any "crime" that presently involves somebody trying to make money

    and i mean somebody just making it (not a madoff type with billions)

    but just trying to survive

    something should be done where people feel they have an option

    because i would can contend that this present day "criminal" system

    jails you for living

    now you answer your question

    i would legalize weed

    i would legalize prostitution if that's how you got to live then you live it

    the only crime i would jail for is murder, sex crimes, all violent crimes

    except self defense

    and for the other "crimes" i would have social assistance in place

    to help people live so they don't have to do "time"

    so i would make it so that if you're in "JAIL"

    then you really really need to be there

    but still i would work to eventuall making it such that we lean to a

    "crime" free society you know make it so that people have access to

    wake they need without having to be sneaky about it

    Parents that whip their children.
    I'm not talking about beating them senseless with a tire iron, but the ones who take off their belt and whoop that ***. I'm sorry, but even if you leave a mark, it should not be a crime.
    Personally, I saw a comment some place a while back that said it all to me; "My home, My children, My gun".
    I'll give you the prime example of this. When my oldest was about 14, he wanted to join some punk gang, wanting to be a part of something "cool". I found about it and in no short term, told him that it wasn't going to happen, that that life had only two endings and neither was good. My son, being the strong-headed person I raised thought he had all the answers (being a teenager) and that it was something that he could just dis guard once he got tired of it (like those piano lessons). So, I showed him how he would have to get into it, and proceeded to beat his *** like a man. Fists, elbows, feet; the whole 9-yards. I left him with a black eye, busted lip and bruised ego. I beat him down, but when I finished he knew what he'd have to go through just to get in, and that getting out was not an option. Today, he's a grown man with a family of his own, and still every once in a while, thanks me for the whole lesson.
    I still have 3 more boys to go, and I will do whatever is necessary to win this war, because that's what it is. I'm fighting a war against the streets; and if the streets win, so does the jail, prison & cemetery. I have dedicated my life to this goal, and I swear by all there is that I will not lose. I would rather go down myself than to have the streets win.
    Parents that whip their children are not the criminals. There are those who will beat their kids out of something other than discipline, and those are the ones that need jail.
    Discipline is one thing, but anger is another.

    Dude!!!!

    You are my hero!!!

    If there were more fathers like you, I gaurantee you our society would be MUCH better off and we would not have 90% of the social problems that exist today.

    Strong, united, nuclear families. That is ONE of the KEYS to it all. Man, Woman, and THEIR BIOLOGICAL children. That is what I preach.

    Hmm Good Ques?

    While I cant think of all the crimes ( or so called crimes ) out there ..i would say most of them do not warrent Jail.

    Prostitutes should not be sent to jail .. they provide prob one of the most valuable services ava .. the prostitution culture simply needs regulating and nothing more.

    off the mark the only crimes that I can think of that would warrant a jail term would be Murder, Manslaughter, Child Cruelty, DUI.

    Mostly everything else can be dealt within the Community.
    But having said all of this the reality of prison and the Judicial system is much more of a Business than it is about persons commiting a "crime" a lot of people get paid good salaries.

    And a lot of people (mainly Black Men) in the prime of their lives & 'repeatedly' denied vital opportunites to achieve their potential!:karate:

    im against prostitution being legal....
    here is my reason why
    in the prostitution ring you have children, women sold and bought...things of this nature
    if it were legal, these other subsets of prostitution would rise....
    thas no good...
