Why don't we make every crime punishable by execution. Then, pretty much everyone will not commit any crime.

Or do we live in a society that supposedly tries to live up to a principle where the punihsment of a crime should fit the crime? If that is the case, and I believe it is so, does putting someone in jail for two years really fit the 'crime' of selling someone a joint, even if it is 1000 feet or less of a school?

Selling a illegal drug according to law less than 1000 feet of a school is punishable by 2 years in jail yes I see no problem maybe if more time was given to crimes they would`t commit them. I know the liberals will cry and whine but but its only his fist offense or he was a good boy or never been in trouble before doesn't hack it with me, I am sure this poor lad of 17 now 18 knew and thought He could get away with it well he lost. T.S.
