I used to be a proponent of capital punishment, but then I learned about how Stalin sent people to work in gulags and decided that making would-be death row criminals do heavy labor for the rest of their lives is a much better punishment.
And of course criminals (at least ones who committed such crimes as rape and mutilation) should get inferior food, and in small quantities just to keep them alive and working.

We don't know if there's a hell or not, so it's better to make sure evil people are properly punished.

More seriously, I believe that justice is only what the law prescribes. I almost never use the word justice when talking seriously about right and wrong, because in my mind I associate it with the rule of law, which is something I consider too rigid to talk about when dealing with such an issue as good or evil.
