I am imposing a curfew. Any kid caught on the street after dark will be shot. Or, returned to their parents, as the situation may warrant.

Occasions like this cry out for a return to corporal punishment. This huge increase of flash mobs of groups of teenagers getting together and committing crimes (mostly groups of black teenagers attacking non blacks.) Obviously something needs to be done to discourage this kind of behavior, but even if we could there's no point in imprisoning all of them. The best solution is that anyone who is caught being part of a violent flash mob simply has some sort of corporal punishment. Nothing too extreme no scarlet letter of anything, maybe just a nice paddling.

I've long been an advocate of corporal punishment. I don't know why people are so closed minded. Look at the crime rate in Singapore! Copy their system if you're smart.

And by the same logic, look at drug violence in Amsterdam! Copy them if you're not retarded.

The problem is that the british were so brutal with their corporal punishments that we decided to stop using them. There's a difference between using something like thumb screws/whipping people to death/the various tortures used in the inquisitions, and normal corporal punishment. I understand some reluctance, and it could become a slippery slope, but if you are willing to execute people/put them in prison for 20 years, i don't see why a caning is to be considered inhumane.

I agree 100%--imprisonment is far more inhumane than caning or execution, especially in the US and Russia.
