Three Ways the Justice System Is Increasingly Broken
by David Sims
ONE THING WHICH I don’t like about the justice systems in most countries is their two-tiered structure, in which poor people who steal $100 go to prison for five to ten years, while rich people who cheat people out of $1,000,000 go to prison for one to five years. [And sometimes they don’t go to prison at all; billionaire Jewish financial vultures whose companies or hedge funds, after stealing billions, end up paying a million-dollar fine (the same as a $50 fine to you and me) and who never go to prison is one example).]
The penalty for a crime shouldn’t depend on how rich the criminal is. Let the penalty for theft be determined as follows:
Amount Stolen: Punishment
$1 to $100: One month in jail.
$101 to $60,000: (Amount in dollars divided by 100) months in prison.
Over $60,000: Death.
No exceptions for rich people.
No exceptions for famous people.
No exceptions for lawyers.
No exceptions for politicians.
No exceptions for public officials.

Another way in which the system is broken is the increasingly thug-like actions of some police officers.
Mr. Policeman, your job isn’t supposed to be safe. Risk is your business. You face it so that we don’t have to. You were hired to be our buffer against crime. We pay you with money, not with the loss of our Constitutional rights. Nobody has required that you become a police officer, and nobody is forcing you to remain one. America isn’t supposed to be run so that the police can be as safe as possible, but rather so that the public can be as free as possible. Labor is specialized here, and your part of it is risk. Don’t shirk that duty. And if you are shirking it, quit.

More men than women commit crimes deserving of the death penalty. Just as more Blacks than Whites commit crimes deserving of the death penalty.
The demographics among those being punished should not necessarily follow the population’s demographics; rather, the demographics among those being punished should follow the demographics of those who commit the crimes.
Some groups are less moral than other groups, and those are the groups who should, therefore, get punished for misbehavior the most often.
The kind of “equity” that requires all outcomes to be equal, regardless of the broad differences between groups, is unjust, unfair, and immoral. That goes for the death penalty, and it goes for hiring policies too.
Affirmative Action is unjust, unfair, and immoral for the same reason. Some groups are more qualified than others to hold a particular job, and intentionally choosing, for reasons of racial politics, less qualified job applicants at the expense of job applicants who are more qualified is wrong.
