Re: Punishment vs Rehabilitation ¶
First of all, there must be a fair judicial system. Taking the United States as just one example (only because I currently reside there), it seems that if one person has sufficient resources/influence he or she could commit just about any crime in the middle of any major intersection in any major city and be found not-guilty or given a slap on the wrist. Likewise, a person of lesser means, could figuratively drop a cigarette butt on the pavement and be slam dunked in the judicial system and forgotten about.
As Asgardians, before we start talking about crime and punishment/rehabilitation, we must insure that justice is truly blind and does not favor one class (wealth, political, status, etc) over the other.
