Justice, in my opinion, is the amount of punishment that an individual should recieve for commiting an offense. I support the capital punishment, if an individual killed someone else, because no amount of years can make up for a life. Giving 25 years- life in prison is not a punishment, in my eyes. You are providing free shelter, food, and care to an individual who doesn't have to work (They make you do some work in prisons amirite?) with money on their mind. Locking away a person is, as you said, making society safer, but does it punish the person? No, because rather, he is given a priviledge. Punishment should be equal to what he did. But my ideal is rather flawed, in the instance if he tortured a person, should justice be inflicting the same amount of pain back to him? It seems quite barbaric.
