Let's kill them all!
I'm tired of dictators. And I'm tired of them being put on the welfare logs of their home countries, living out the rest of their lives in supreme luxury while the population of their respective countries live in squalor.

So, I prepared this list of what needs to be done, by a country's people, to those bastards who escape from the proper punishments they deserve. Please note that for other countries, the "cruel and unusual punishment clause does not apply.

If a despot has:

Murdered up to 10 people: Should be put into a zoo, whose cage will be situated next to a produce stand. People can then purchase their choice of rotting fruit or vegetables, which can then be thrown at despot. He/she would be fed infrequently, so any fruit or veggies they manage to keep from splatting everywhere can be eaten.

Murdered or massacred over 10 people: Should be placed in front of a firing squad, and shot. Period.

Taken advantaged of the population of a country: Must take the place of a worker in one of the worst jobs in the country, and made to live on that worker's ordinary paycheck, with the same lacks and needs as that worker.

Apprehended while trying to flee to a neutral country: Summarily executed. I don't think it's an atrocious punishment to keep the bastard from living high on the hog in exile, plotting for when the time is "right" for him/her to return to power later down the line.

Tortured people: Torture them, and see how fast they back-peddle on what actually constitutes "torture."

Framed someone for the crimes they perpetrated themselves: Lock them up in a place just like Gitmo--or worse--and leave them to rot.

I know, I know: I'm missing a whole lot of crimes, but the bottom line is this: bad guys are bad guys. They rob, cheat, steal, and kill. They have no scruples, nor will they ever have them. And while I believe that not everything is solved by capital punishment, I think in some cases, it is the only thing that will affect enough of these bastards to stop more from doing the same thing.

I would say that I am not going to actively pursue any of the above. I have a great desire to make it a reality, but as someone who is often incapable of even climbing a flight of stairs, I don't have the ability to accomplish any of it. But perhaps, like Jonathan Swift, my Modest Proposal will kick-start the imagination of others, and we will see some great crime novels as a result. ;)

1. Locking
Advocating violence, even if joking, has no place here at DU
