It's too bad we don't have caning.

@Milford Senior Man, have you heard of this thing called the eighth amendment? It says in part that cruel an unusual punishments should not be inflicted. I think any reasonable person would see caning as cruel punishment. How exactly is caning an appropriate punishment for a robbery? Maybe you want to bring back public hangings in the town square? Has your world view advanced at all beyond colonial America?

I don't understand the airsoft comment. It makes no sense. Tilting at windmills mean anything to anyone?
