You think our punishment is stiff, this 19 yr old girl is fixing to be publicly beheaded by the Saudi government, because a baby died in her care while bottle-feeding. In America, the punishment would probably be a max of 10 yrs in jail with possible probation after 5 for good behavior. What would the crime rate be if we start beheading folks for murder an chopping fingers off for stealing. We might want to give it a try, the states would be a lot safer. I know it would never happen, because we care to much about these pedophiles, rapists, killers, and how much revenue would be loss due to empty prisons.
