I'm vaguely interested in people's opinions on this matter. In your home country, what is the single most obviously idiotic law that is still on the books? I'm not talking about dumbass "barber's can't eat onions between the hours of 8 a.m. and six p.m." laws that are on the books in various small towns. I mean, which public policy should anyone able to stand upright notice is ass-backwards and should be done away with?

For me it's our nation's marijuana laws. Nearly a million arrests annually clog up our legal system for as harmless a drug as you can come by whose profits go to organized crime instead of hard-working farmers.

A close second is our continued embargo to Cuba, only maintained because of a large Cuban population in the swing state of Florida.

So, what's your pick?

The Death Penalty.

The Patriot Act sucks, but most horrible things about the Patriot Act exist in Europe normally, and nobody complains. The Patriot Act is only bad because the US previously valued free speech more then it does now.

East Finland's Higher Regional Court lowered a rapist's prison sentence because he had a job. What the fuck, I know.

Basically the fact you can get away with so little if you raped someone, but if you're charged with some kind of a drug crime you're almost certainly going to jail for a few years.

I hate drugs and everything, but I definitely would like to have safer streets, as well.

But I think this is happening in a lot of countries right now. Alarming. :/

There's gotta be more to it than that. If that is it oh my fucking lord. The precedent it sets is alarming. If a rapist has a job then he gets a reduced prison sentence.

I agree with the Death Penality btw. Stupid law.

There might've been something else to it, but I honestly can't remember. The basic reason for the lowering of the sentence was basically that and that's why the whole thing got so much media attention.

It's become a common joke in Finland that the East Finland's High Regional Court gives really stupid sentences. Like, "I killed three people and East Finland's High Regional Court paid me money because the blood ruined my shirt!"

I'm sorry, but the death penalty is a good thing, it may seem cruel, but think again what the offender has done to deserve it

I don't think theres one, but theres a few: Patriot Act, many of the liability laws (that allow some law firms to make millions for some poor bastard tripping on your porch), and the bans on gay marriage... i dont like gays, but they have the same rights we do, the government CAN NEVER tell us what to live by... Its a land of freedom and they're taking away those poor peoples freedom (poor as in it sucks that the gov't did that, not poor as in pitiful)

You are a fucking idoit. But then again so is everyone. Just your more of an idoit.

There have been innocents to have been sentenced to death. The risk alone should stop it.

Also death isn't even a punishment if you want to play it like that. It's a release.

The thing I hate about the death penality is the fact some innocent might know he will be sentenced to death knowing that he has done nothing. That has to be the most awful pain.

Having a job shows signs of rehabiliation. Rehabiliation is a major part of the modern justice system. Rapists are capable of rehibiliation, so I find nothing wrong with that program. If prison was based on retribution and nobody got second chances because the government based it's policies on outdated, medieval moral ideas, that would be backward ass.

The most backward law we have is the one that allows women to vote! Stupid bitches should be cooking my dinner or sucking my dick, not voting!
