What kinds of punishment is appropriate in accordance with buddhist
principles? I am refferring to rapists, murderers. etc.
If you think that all forms of punishments are unbuddhist,
then pl ignore this thread. Pragmatic buddhism, imagine you are a
judge & you have the power to mete out punishment.
IMO, its more humane to chop off a man's hand than to
put him behind bars for 20 years.
