[QUOTE=palmetto defender;4490861]Let's just say i am more experienced than you on these matters and actually see productivity. With the military: I was an officer. Had a fair number of men. Disobey or break a rule - that'll cost you a rank and 2-4 weeks salary. More - the brig. As long as people know the rules - great.
pad your expense account in biz or steal. See ya. No severence and forget about a reference. Plus with cause =NO unemployment.
Compassion is when a HS wide receiver drops a pass or a RB put one on the ground.
Molesting a girl. Summary expulsion and time in someplace with bars.
Rob a Subway with a gun at 17. See you in 10-15. Happened in this area 5 years ago. I don't care if he comes out bad. He'll be going right back for 15-20.
police do not make the rules. They enforce them. A kid out too late may get a liottle police advice. One vandalizing cars deserves no slack.[/QUOTE]
The military has more suicides than war deaths right now. Not a very impressive example of a rigid society being effective in making productive citizens. The police state mentality you advocate has been tried in the past in Europe and it's not a very successful model.
