    Do you believe in things like stoning, cutting people hands off etc.
    Sure cutting someones hand off is very harsh but it's meant to be harsh, to deter people from stealing. How often do you hear about robbery from countries which enforce this punishment?

    That's ridiculous. Where's the evidence that harsh measures like that are deterrents? American states that have the death penalty for example show no decrease in the number of murders. And cutting off someone's hand is irreversible and causes a permanent disability which cannot be rectified if it's found that the victim was in fact innocent.

    It's frankly quite disgusting to see you justify the mutilation of fellow human beings.
