I think we need a re-examination of the social contract

Tony Woodlief thinks:
I’m all for presumption of innocence before guilt is proven, and for humane treatment of guilty-as-sin prisoners. But, ... at some point, perhaps when the number of your victims requires a football field for burial, you give up the right to any nourishment beyond a daily bowl of gruel, and anything that comes from your piehole other than “I’m so sorry for being a murdering sack of monkey poo” gets you a slap in the jaw. But I’m a conservative troglodyte that way.
