Jason's insight:

Does privatizing alcohol cause crime? The only thing i can see happening is increased underage drinking. There would be more than double the stores selling alcohol and would create many jobs. Can this help with alcohol related crimes?

With death penalty, let punishment truly fit the crime

With death penalty, let punishment truly fit the crime | Death Penalty | Scoop.it
Robert Blecker says execution cannot erase the harm done by a vicious criminal, but it can help restore a moral balance.
Jason's insight:
The death penalty is something people hate talking about. No one wants to take responsibility for punishing these criminals with the death penalty. When maximum security prisoners are living an easy life behind bars, while the smaller criminals have it a lot worse. What's your thoughts and opinions about the death penalty?

US citizens dying in Mexico: American deaths expected to increase in 2011 - El Paso Times

US citizens dying in Mexico: American deaths expected to increase in 2011 - El Paso Times | Death Penalty | Scoop.it

Homicide was the leading cause of death for 119 U.S. citizens who died in Mexico and were reported to the U.S. State Department between Jan. 1 and June 30, according to statistics. | ""Much of the country's narcotics-related violence has occurred in the border region. More than a third of all U.S. citizens killed in Mexico in 2010 whose deaths were reported to the U.S. government were killed in the border cities of Ciudad Juárez and Tijuana," the State Department said."

Jason's insight:

Should the U.S. State Department lift the travel warning for Mexico? The drug violence is causing most of these deaths and isn't slowing down. Educating the youth in schools may slim these numbers and inform the high school and college students.
