"An eye for an eye" - an age old saying.
But is this really the right path to take? Some people would consider it justice, but is it not revenge?
I want to understand where people are coming from when they think an act or retribution is an acceptable form of justice. Is it morally correct to harm those who have harmed you? Should society punish those with the same methods as their crime? Like Sharia Law?
Justice should give ALL people fairness, both the victim and the criminal should recieve closure.
Does revenge truely give the victims closure?
I think this article clears up many things. I honestly disagree with the concept of killing those who have killed, or even raping those who have raped. Do we not just cause more damage by commiting the same crime twice?
