  • Death Penalty Questions

    Another difficult issue for me is the Death Penalty. Could you show me your views please? Many believe that death penaly does not deter crime. Is it true? Any reliable sources? Other claim that death penalty will prevent future crime because criminals will have the fear of this kind of punishment. What...

  • Re: Is Holmes mentally ill?

    Sat. 12/07/28 2012 16:52 EDT . post #229 [quote user="Wheylous"] I haven't really considered whether murderers are all inherently mentally ill, but to me it seems from a naive perspective that not all murderers have to be mentally ill or psychopaths. I'd appreciate any ideas.[/quote...

  • Insider trading - can it be a crime?

    Most states prohibit insider trading if it is based on "material non-public information" (which is a bit strange, as insiders always have material non-public information). What would be a libertarian position? For concreteness, let's say Bill owns significant share of BP, and being also...

  • What about Arizonas' new law is it legal and is it profiling?

    As we all know Arizona just passed a new law I think it legalizes profiling and could spread to other states in the country. If I run a red light pull me over and give me a ticket don't ask me my nationality.

  • Lack of standing (corpus delecti) in criminal and civil cases

    If the state was established to protect an individual's rights and one is subjugated as a defendant in a case in which the defendant violated nobody's rights, shouldn't a motion to dismiss the case on a lack of standing be successful? Are there any holes in the above proposition? Are there...

  • People Food?

    I was thinking about this case a while ago from Europe, where this man posted an ad looking for someone to eat. A few people answered but most backed out, and he respected their decisions. He even went to a movie and ate a pizza with one of the guys who backed out at the very last minute. Finally someone...

  • Arrests, Convictions, Crime Investigation, and Issuing Warrsnts

    Ok, this is one thing that I haven't been able to resolve in my head, but how would the above work? For example, if person A kills person B, but society has no clue that Person A did so, how would the investigation proceed? Obviously, it'd be privately contracted, but what about the investigation...

  • siamese twins?

    Ok, so here is an astoundingly stupid question......I am wondering how siamese twins should be treated in a free society. Here are a few questions..... 1. Would siamese twins be treaed as 1 person, or two? (I am guessing two?) 2. what if one half of a siamese twin wanted to kill himself? Could he do...

  • Re: The killing of outlaws

    [quote user="Len Budney"] [quote]The penalty for murder should be the same as it is for civil wrongful death: the full value of the life of the victim measured in money and, again as in civil wrongful death, the victim's conscious pain and suffering.[/quote] I favor the death penalty for...
