Way to go American Justice System

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

The bad of it far outweighs the good.
You even look at a cop in America sideways and you'll have problem - 10 times as bad if you are black or Hispanic.

And what are they going to do to this guy for the next 30 years? There will be zero attempt at rehabilitation because our criminal justice system is simply about punishing the offender.

Not sure rehabilitating him is the goal here, given the length of his sentence.

that is why you chose the utopian society of the PRC I guess.
  • Muslims are forced to eat pork and drink alcohol as punishment in China's Islamic 're-education' camps, former inmates reveal
    Chinese officials have detained around one million Muslims in internment camps
    Prisoners are forced to quash religious beliefs as China fights Islamic extremism
    Such camps in west China have expanded rapidly with almost no judicial process

Viewing a foreign website, taking phone calls from relatives abroad, praying regularly or growing a beard could land one in a political indoctrination camp, or prison, or both
effective rehabilitation no?

Hopefully, the inmates are going to make his life a living hell.

Who gives a fuck about rehabilitation with shit like this?

Punish him!

Thinking about it but for all the worst reasons. Sometimes I'm ashamed of myself for what I'm considering.
Muslims are forced to eat pork and drink alcohol as punishment in China's Islamic 're-education' camps, former inmates reveal Chinese officials have detained around one million Muslims in internment camps.
Prisoners are forced to quash religious beliefs as China fights Islamic extremism.

I don't know anything about this and it does not resemble in any way, shape or form my experiences in China. I've visited Urumqi and was there for 2 weeks and Xian as well; in fact I'm fairly close to Xian in Chengdu - where there is a large Tibetan population and Muslims as well. I've seen nothing of the sort you are describing and I've been in and out of "Greater China" for close to 25 years. China is where I went to from Thailand.

I've NEVER had any problems with police in China.

Oh I'm sure the inmates are going to make his life a living hell - and not just his; it's part and parcel of the American Criminal Justice System. In fact the basis of the American Criminal Justice System is the understanding that if you break the law, a big, nasty black man is going to fuck you up the ass.

Who gives a fuck about rehabilitation with shit like this?

Punish him!
How about finding out what makes him tick, adding to the body of knowledge on deviant behavior and maybe coming up with a prevention plan based on what we might learn?

So you’re going to volunteer your kid to rehabilitate this man and teach him not to fondle kids? How noble of you! And good luck!
