California wants to free criminals by the thousands, and it will as the state sinks deeper into the liberal abyss.

My thoughts are that North Carolina could probably do the same so that prison population could be reduced and the prison “life of luxury and free everything” could end. My method would slightly be different as corporal punishment would be immediately implemented for all crimes.

The Singapore system of punishment should be implemented in North Carolina — beginning with caning for the first offender’s crimes and progressing to the ultimate punishment of death for the murderers, rapists, kidnappers and child molesters. Not only would this free our society of the worst of the worst, but a strong deterrent would in place to reduce crime, plus stop recurring offenses. These punishments, of course, would be opposed by lawyers as our current system is the golden goose for their profession.

Or we could continue to coddle these scumbags and let them destroy families and the lives of law-abiding citizens. When will we protect our families?

When will you demand a change to our country’s justice system?
