 Repression and Police State

Let's have real punishments for real crimes, but leave the rest of us alone
by Sean Gabb
 sub-topic» Punishment

We live in a country where the only people not scared of the police are those who should be. If we want a criminal justice system that works, we need to get out of this useless debate and go “back to basics.” We need a system that focuses the power of the State like a burning glass focuses the rays of the sun. It needs to put down crime and leave the rest of us to get on with our lives.
