Well this is certainly religulous....


I was reading this article:
http://www.cnn.com/2014/08/27/justic...html?hpt=hp_t2

Beyond that fact that this is another perfect example of the idiocy of religion, I have to say that 15 years in prison for cutting someones hair against their will seems extreme...

I mean, I could understand that long sentence if the person made their living on hair care products or it was some kind of trademark thing, but for crying out loud.. its just hair.. it grows back!

15 years for cutting hair while some get only 10 years for rape? Seriously?

Replace the word "atheist" with "science" and you'll be a lot closer.....

I am quite sure that the author would have no trouble substituting your belief structure. Matter of fact, that would be his point.

I guess if you have deep pockets you can buy the right attorney to build the defense.
But on the other hand- half of the judges need to be removed

No... Some of us have the utmost belief in the infallibility of rational man and science.... and equally in the dis-belief of other other beliefs.

Time to leave the other thread behind.....
I don't know where PaulBob wants to head here, but I'm hoping it has to do with our legal system.
It is a serious matter when you consider the people involved and how lives are changed by a person behind a bench or the attorneys.

I have seen it first hand--I wish I hadn't

Oh no.. Don't give me the steering wheel.. I was just making conversation about something I found to be idiotic.. This is the controversial forum.. I wanted to stir up a bit of controversy...

Hair cutting is an Amish thing.. Its a quasi-religious punishment for non-conformity that (I believe) is unique to the Amish culture. A spotlight shinning on more religious stupidity.. if that doesn't stir up some controversy just read on...

Sending someone to prison for 15 years for cutting someones hair? That makes the religious stupidity seem lame by comparison... I'm kind of a hard case when it comes to punishing criminals. I personally think there should be a special express line to the electric chair and serial rapist should be forcibly castrated, or worse...
But putting someone in jail for such a long time for such a relatively harmless assault crime? That's just wrong...

I wasn't sure if you were driving backwards a day or two- or going forward with the crime topic

I pretty much agree. Seems like sentencing is upside down when it comes to violent vs. non violent crimes. I wish some of those harsh penalties could be dished out to some of our elected officials..... Such as destroying hard drives without following proper procedures.
