    Bring back public flogging

    Corporal punishment has a long history and I am not talking about in school. Delaware has recently decided to remove its historical whipping post due to racial sensitivities. How ever I ask why not give twenty lashes to a wife beater? More to someone who sexually assaults a woman or a child? In addition to hard labor in prison.

    American colonies judicially punished in a variety of forms, including whipping, stocks, the pillory and the ducking stool.[64] In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, whipping posts were considered indispensable in American and English towns.[65] Starting in 1776, Gen. George Washington strongly advocated and utilized JCP in the Continental Army, with due process protection, obtaining in 1776 authority from the Continental Congress to impose 100 lashes, more than the previous limit of 39.[66] In his 1778 Bill for Proportioning Crimes and Punishments, Thomas Jefferson provided up to 15 lashes for individuals pretending to witchcraft or prophecy, at the jury's discretion; castration for men guilty of rape, polygamy or sodomy, and a minimum half-inch hole bored in the nose cartilage of women convicted of those sex crimes.[67] In 1781, Washington requested legal authority from the Continental Congress to impose up to 500 lashes, as there was still a punishment gap between 100 lashes and the death penalty.[68] The Founders believed whipping and other forms of corporal punishment effectively promoted pro-social and discouraged anti-social behavior. Two later presidents, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt, advocated judicial corporal punishment as punishment for wife-beating.[69]

    In the United States judicial flogging was last used in 1952 in Delaware when a wife beater got 20 lashes. In Delaware, the criminal code permitted floggings to occur until 1972.[70][71][72] One of the major objections to judicial corporal punishment in the United States was that it was unpleasant to administer.[citation needed]

    Judicial corporal punishment has never been held unconstitutional in the United States.[69] In fact, the Fifth Amendment specifically mentions amputation of limbs as a possible sentence for offenders, perhaps referencing Thomas Jefferson's proposed legislation punishing rapists

    How about public hanging for the next BLM protester that throws a brick at a cop.

    Hmmmmm. Stockades for low level offense, public caning for mid range, and the old noose for capitol offenses.

    Something tells me people would behave a bit more civilized after the first few people were made examples of.

    Is this thread a joke?

    In the tenth century raping and pillaging was a part of war...should we bring that back?

    It still is "part of war", radical Islam does it all the time. Particularly to Christians and Jews. 1980 to present. Middle East, Africa........

    The Poles used to impale the Tartars and Turks, after their barbaric deeds, maybe bring that back? Tit for Tat?

    It worked and the Poles kept the Horde out of Europe for hundreds of years.. Vivat Jan Sobieski!!!!

    Wars will not end until the final one.

    Until then, vanquishing your enemy, instead of a false truce, seems to be the best means of a longer lasting peace.
