Floyd R. Turbo at Rufus Vs. The Daily Headlines considers the topic of punishment. He's in favor of physical punishment for the lesser stuff and executions for the major stuff. I agree with him that the prison system is a miserable, dehumanizing failure. My religious sensibilities aren't inconsistent with the idea that it's less inhuman to inflict pain/humiliation or execute than to lock up like an animal. And I suspect that such a punishment scheme would have a significant impact on the criminal culture in this country, especially as concerns the younger criminal class.
