I am not a full believer in this. Maybe because i come from Canada and our justice system sucks. In my early 20's my life path came across a situation which got me involved with counseling women who had been severely abuse. In particular, one case, was a man who raped and beat more then 15 women all of whom were too afraid to speak out.
Anyway, without getting into details, this man got 2 years. Sure, he did his time, but out of all those women he raped, only 6 went on to have normal lives. These were not screwed up women, they all had great families, were educated, had good jobs, were sound mind... and this man killed them mentally. Most of them are now alcoholics, have not had jobs since then, don't leave the house, one tried to comit suicide.
I don't believe because a "higher power" decided what his punishment should be, that that is the correct punishment. When this man got two years most of the women who talked to me felt as if the judge thought there life was only worth two years.
This really affected me. Dogs are dead, dogs were abused, dogs were torchered... who is some judge to decide how much their life's are worth. In my mind once you kill someone either physically or mentally, i dont care how much time you got...its not enough, because someone is still suffering forever because of that person.
