    I'm not here to dismiss fucking arguments lol. If something sounds crazy it's crazy. I addressed the issues pages ago with a system like that, now I am just going to saying it's fucking bogus to kill off innocents and deem it okay just because you also kill baddies.

    He did not present any substantial argument that hasn't been refuted a thousand times over and instead just launched straight into a tirade, which in essence, was synonymous with "sometimes, you just gotta kill em". I'm not dismissing any of his arguments, because he presented none.

    Right, I realized I shouldn't have included that afterwards because it's not the case in this case.

    I'm pretty sure having a reputation for a prolific rape problem is horrible for tourism whether people think you punish it or not. Even if your statement was true, it wouldn't matter anyways since the alternative to capital punishment doesn't have to be letting them go free.

    Gang rape is slightly more forgivable than one on one rape simply because of how humans begin to function in groups.

    Don't want to be put to death? Don't rape and murder people. Not a hard concept. Cannot fathom how you can think this is an okay idea and then whinge when you get justice done to you for it.

    Rape and murder: just say 'no'.

    When it comes to how you punish people, people that take part of any gang activity I view as less worse than a person acting alone. People in groups tend to go along with the group, conform to the group, do what the group does. It's similar to by stander effect except with people in action. Group mentality drives the group and makes people do things that they normally wouldn't do. Many people can become completely evil seeming if they're in a group that does evil things, even if it's something they typically wouldn't do.

    A person acting alone doing these acts isn't doing it because a group is, isn't impaired from their normal way of thinking and morals because of a group, rather they are like that themselves already and unaltered because of group which puts them in a special kind of fucked up.

    That doesn't diminish their actions. If anything it makes it worse.

    It doesn't diminish their actions, but it is less evil than a single person raping a person. Group mentality is a very strong thing and often drives people to do things they typically wouldn't. Now I am just looking at this objectively of course.

    You are twisting what I am saying. From a victim perspective it's worse.

    I am looking at it from the perspective of how people work in groups.

    Group mentality can move people to do things they typically wouldn't do alone, that should be taken into account.

    No, it's not less evil.

    I think that an individual driven by herd mentality is less evil than a person driven by only themselves.
