You can presume that, but you would be incorrect in doing so.
A member of your immediate family suffers from paranoid scizophrenia do they?
Your comment was completely ignorant and based on the stereotypically view of people who suffer from schizophrenia, I still think you don't have a clue what you are talking about.
Well, by definition punishment is meant to decrease a certain aversive behavior, so punishment kind of does have a place in society, just not in this case. In this case, there is nothing anyone can do. Lock him up and keep him away from other people for the rest of his life.
It does, but not in the way a lot of people would think of it.
I'm not even going to atempt to deal with this statement. That's too much like having an arguement with a zoo keeper about a bear eating your brother. Either way, your brother got eaten by a bear.
How does that analogy make any sense? Wawa was dismissing the idea that this man could be suffering from schizophrenia based on...well, nothing grounded in fact really.
Well that is just a very sad state of affairs. Here's the thing that you have to realize, society is not about having certain people treated fairly, it's about making it where people are able to live their lives without the fear of this kind of thing happening. Punishment isn't meant to "Treat" the offender, it's meant to protect the innocent.
What are you even talking about? I'm all for the protection of the innocent, didn't you gather that from my post?
I'm against "punishment" such as locking people up in terrible conditions and the death penalty.
