    Hello:
    There was a time here in Milwaukee that a killing was not the norm. Infact, years ago we were shocked when there was a crime of murder. Sorry to say things have changed for the worse. The news tonight mentioned that a group of kids 12 to 16 ran into a Macey's department store in a suburb near Milwaukee, stole designer clothing and ran on to a bus without paying for the clothes. Over $2,000 in clothing was stolen from Macey's.

    The police arrested 8 of these criminals and are still looking for the rest. A couple of days ago, a young thug slapped around and hurt a female bus driver on a Milwaukee county bus, when she took a fake ID from this above mentioned young punk.

    At the gun club the other day, it was mentioned that maybe a show of force needs to be done, and maybe we should bring back public execution. One guy said if you steal, chap off a hand. Some people are so fed up with the criminal element not only in my city, but around this country.

    What can be done, what should be done to stop these people from commiting crimes? What do you think?

    Damn! Can we burn witches at the stake? How about a KKK rally and cross burnings? Who gets the concession stands? Fred

    YES start public executions or at least start following thru on the ones already sentenced to death. Also, cut out the 10 year and longer appeals process. You start hanging them at high noon in the city square and i gurantee their crook buddies will take note. The way it is now the worst thing that happens is they get 3 squares and a cot. They work out, watch TV and plan their next crime for when they get out. Make the executions available on public TV and make sure the ones in prison for brutal crimes get to watch.

    I'd be glad to take the ice cream concession at public hangings if they are held in the summer. Bulge.

    Bring back the Electric chair, only make it a couch so we can do 3 at a time!!!!

    Criminals are to coddled today, the justice system seems to favor the suspect over the victim in many cases. It would be great for the folks that are fed up with crime to do something about it, but it will never happen. I refuse to be a victim, try to make me one and you will have the worst day of your life. I WILL kill you if at all possible, If I have to beat you to death so be it, If I can legally use my firearm, so much the better. It is just plain and simple, LEAVE ME ALONE or YOU suffer the consequences.

    to be caught still sitting there with your head down, texting, after the left hand turn arrow has turned green should be a capital offense. good luck with it

    Do any of you remeber a movie with Paul Newman, Cool hand Luke? That's the type of time people should serve today. People do not get rehilbilatated in prison. You want people to never want to go back should they serve their time. If you are sentenced to 10 years, you serve the full 10 years.

    One of the guys at the club said we should set up prisons in the Nevada desert. No building structures, just machine gun towers outside the fenced in prison. Air drop bread and water. He said hopefully they will kill each other.

    Maybe the families of murder victims should be given the choice of death for the criminal. Rape victims could castrate their attackers with hacksaws or a linoleum knife. That might be a deterrent. It should stop repeat offenders. Larry

    Lets start by making prisons, places no one wants to come back to!

    No weight rooms, black and white TV only and showing only news channels.

    No AC and only wood heat(bring in logs to be cut up and split)where prisons are in northern areas. In southern areas, all they need is areas of shade.

    Take out all pavement and cement in the court yards, give them shovels,hoes and rakes along with packets of seeds so they can raise some of their food needs. Set up a butcher shop and bring in the road kills and confiscated Poached wildlife for their protein.

    They don't work, they don't eat and they can starve to death and won't cost the taxpayers anymore needless spent money on their worthless carcase.

    As for showers, all on 10 minute timers and after that the water turns ICE cold!

    Almost forgot, take out ALL law books and replace then with "Dummie" books.

    I do agree prisons should just be fenced in areas with guard towers with standing orders to shoot on site any rioters or gang fights that might take place.

    One could only hope for prison life to be BAD for the criminal!

    Gentlemen, you must remember that doing any of this would be VIOLATING a prisoner's rights.He has more rights when in jail than the victim.I ON THE OTHER HAND BELIEVE A SHOT TO HEAD WOULD UNBURDEN SOCIETY OF ANOTHER DEAD BEAT!10 cents for a bullet or thousands of the taxpayers money to keep him up in jail.WHICH DO I PICK???.....BULLET!!!!!!!

    It all starts from the family values and morale. The liberals have eroded the American family to the point we are raising animals. This is the new norm.

    The thin vale of civilization we take for granted is crumbling on all levels of society.

    If you take God out of the family, school and government, I wonder who takes his place?
