Re: Prison
This is the difference between me and you. I go by what the law is not what it should be.
The law once allowed slavery.  There are some advocating that infanticide should be legal. If they prevail will you support a woman's legal right to kill her newborn?

Your two posts seem to contradict each other. Care to explain why they don't?

Re: Prison
No as any induvial is a poor judge of what the law should be.

And our legislators are better judges? 

In any case, I didn't mean would you unilaterally change the law but rather would you advocate for the law to be changed.

Re: Prison Prison should not be retribution.  IMHO it has two purposes. 1) Deterrent 2) Keeping dangerous people from harming the public.  Past a certain point, the additional years don't add meaningful deterrent. In addition, terms of release can be harsh enough to also serve as deterrent.

Maddoff, as awful as what he did is, posses no further threat to the public.  Even if it could be argued that he'd find some one willing to invest with him, the terms of his release can make that close to impossible. He can be forbidden from having a bank account, etc, etc. He could work with a specialized parole board to find an occupation where he could earn the most money in a legitimate way without posing a risk to the public and have all of his earnings go to a fund to repay his victims, aside from a small allowance to pay for minimal living conditions he would be required to accept.

Surely that is better for his victims.  What is the downside here?

Re: COVID-19 (Wuhan Novel Coronavirus) Pandemic Master Thread

Two points.

1) In light of his own comments the day before, it would seem this is simply case of a politician never missing an opportunity to make political hay. 

2) His comments about not accelerating the economy at the cost of human lives strike me as disingenuous.  All economic activity comes at a risk to human life and you need to acknowledge that before you can have a meaningful discussion on the correct balance.
