Did you ever think if their parent had spanked their butts whene they were young they might not be criminals?

Actually I've read several times that children who are spanked as children have better chances at becoming a violent criminal.

You aren't the first to question this.  Studies have been done.  Incarcerated men are more likely  to have been physically punished as children than non-incarcerated men.

If they are harsher punishments they would not do it again! I agree...

I'm not the original anon, but you do realize that the majority of violent prisoners admit to being spanked as children, right?

Your argument is invalid.

While they may not "spank" them in prison, if they misbehave and get violent, there is physical deterrents. Besides, prison is like time-out so they're already being punished.
