While going through Rachel’s blog, came across the post on jails, etc. Found I had already re-blogged it. You can find it here. But the subject is worthy of more thought. Got some New ones on this.
Kindness is a wonderful thing. It Blesses the person who practices it. Kindness to the criminal is needed. If We do not render that, We become animals ourselves.
But All who Ignore the Kindness Necessary for the Victim, the Living, and the Future generations are Small Brains.
Ideally, the prison should be a centre for Rehabilitation. But, Are We Ready to spend the Billions that would be required to provide enough personnel for that, for the years and years that would be needed for rehabilitation?
We grumble at every increase in tax.
We are Mute spectators when the administration gobbles up our tax money, and spends it on themselves and on the arms industry. Sporadic voices do not count!
A: I had earlier raised this question to all who speak up so well for kindness to criminals: What IS Your proposal to contain the Habitually Violent, the Serial Klllers, the Repeat Child Rapists, and the drug barons? And those who Throw Acid?
I have found No worth-while answers from those who protest to giving the Death sentence to Animalistic criminals.
We want warnings for graphics which contain Violence. Just the Sight of these pictures Disturb Us. But We have No Thought for the Violence, the Horrific, Continued Pain, and even the Shame Suffered by the Victim.
Picture from the Internet.
Those enumerated in para ‘A’ escape from prisons. In countries like India, they are not even prosecuted! If jailed, they are set free either due to political influence, or on the excuse that the jails are full.
And Who Suffers? Society. The Human Race. It Continues to Suffer. Do We think that a person who has been Raped forgets it? Do We think that the Mental Trauma and the Shame, particularly in countries like India, lasts but moments or something?
It is Easy to Keep on raising these questions. It is the ‘In’ thing. Much appreciated. But where are the answers?
According to me, All those of para ‘A’ should be given the Death sentence.
It is Our Own Fear of Death that says No to it for the person in the news, in this case, the criminal. What is So Special about Life anyway? And What is So Frightening about Death?
There are Many who Absolutely go Limp even thinking of those on death row going through their suffering. But I see No Tears in their eyes for the Victims.
Wilters and Wimps do not care about Victims. I know people who were Molested as Children, and are on Heavy Drugs even today because of that, at the age of 55. And People who live as Paraplegics as a result of ‘Hit-and-Run’ incidents or Rowdyism.
The Victims suffer for 60 Years at times. Let these criminals suffer those 60 minutes.
Let the so called pacifists pray that bad things do not happen to them, or to their children.
