The leftists demote vandalism from crime to virtue. This is horrible because then every punk can like break your bike, smash your car window, destroy your front yard, and public landscapes get it even worse. Vandals have it easy and I hate them, because they squat and destroy, and nobody can force them pay restitution. But I've just got an idea from a Turkish girl here. I oppose sharia law because it has no habeas corpus, but it does deal with vandals well. The family of the vandal must negotiate a financial settlement to the owners of the damaged property. If they can't agree, then the vandal goes to jail, and gets flogged or linched at scheduled intervals seen fit by a community judge. Sometimes the floggings are public. How do you stop a vandal? Looks like money doesn't do it. Then lynching will. I think this would be much more effective than anything western justice systems can do for correction. then imagine, your jealous gf smashes your car windows and she is taken away for a public flogging butt naked. Most vandals are guys. Would anything work on them other than institutional beating?
