Do you think the law should continue to protect those that have broken it?
By this question, I don't mean smaller crimes. But, should people that commit violent acts, threats, robberies etc etc ... still then be protected by the same legal system which they are breaking the rules of!?
If you break the rules of your insurance policy, they don't protect you anymore ... simple. Would it be better if the security of protection was removed from those committing serious crimes?
This opens up a whole can of worms! By removing lawful protection from people who commit a crime I believe you would create a larger problem. Who is to say who is actually guilty and innocent? If I truly kill some one in self defense but am found guilty of murder, does that give other people the right to kill, maim or rape me? Very interesting topic, I am interested to see what everyone else has to say.
Yes, a criminal should still have some protection for the benefit of all concerned. We must continue to eliminate the lynch mob and vigilante style situations for the protection of the innocent more so than the criminal.
