Murderers – if they’re guilty beyond a shadow of a doubt they are put to death within 48 hours. If not, standard rules apply with a 5 year max jail time before execution.
Violent Rapist – bump it back up to the death penalty with above rules. None of the he “said, she said”/ “we were drunk” crap here.
Pedophiles – adults with children in middle school or lower grades, guardian’s choice of punishment. If it’s a 2-4 year difference & the parents are charging because of spite, refer to kids choice. Example: parents don’t like boyfriend & file charges because daughter is 16, this is BS. Some states have “Romeo & Juliet” laws that help negate dumb stuff.
Violent offenders – 3 strikes within ___ years equals state servitude or death (their choice).
Drug violators – receive 1 chance at rehab. Repeat offenders will have 1+ year in prison with mandatory state labor and rehab.
Non-violent offenders – will pay fine &/or receive time doing mandatory state labor.
State labor refers to manual labor work that would normally go to state appointed contractors, or help with said contractors. Labor also includes growing food for the self-sufficiency of the prisons & schools.
Three tier system – 1) armed guard “heavy” over watch. 2) armed guard “light” over watch. 3) self-regulated with check-in’s.
Prisons – for the time being criminals have lost your vested rights as a citizen. Prison will have electricity & running water. Inmates will be guaranteed 2 meals a day & in most cases 3 meals a day will be provided. Food will be provided by the labor of the inmates. No TV, no music, few books, they will get their work outs in the field. It is a punishment, not a pleasant hiatus from society.
Felons – lose the ability to vote & own weapons. I’d propose that in felonies dealing with money the felon may gain the ability to vote & own a weapon once they have righted the wrong & paid back the debt owed.
