PUNISHMENT FOR REVEENGING A CRIME
what extent the figure of the Ghost can be seen as a divine messenger of justice advocating revenge, and question whether Hamlets mission was doomed from the start. If execution is used, and it turns out that an innocent person has been executed, I believe the law should require heavy compensation to be paid to the next of kin. No-one has ever found a really good way of responding to crime, and neither have.
This conflict of the moral issue in taking revenge and risking damnation is exemplified in Hamlets description of the Ghost as a host of heaven! His success in raising an army of supporters against Claudius shows how much more easily Hamlet, whom the people loved (loved of the distracted multitude could have done the same thing, which emphasises how purely internal were the obstacles Hamlet had to overcome. For example if someone murders someone else they have forfeited their right to life and they may in some instances be put to death. In my opinion, prison should be used (if at all) only for dangerous, violent criminals, who should be kept in solitary confinement for life, out of contact with other prisoners. The discovery of Claudius crime, the murder of the Old King Hamlet, by Hamlet places him in the role of judge and executioner, as Shakespeare, and similarly Middleton, place their characters in a situation where they can not obtain justice for the crimes made against. Brainwashing changing someone's mentality without his consent effectively extinguishes the personality that previously existed, and seems to me more or less equivalent to execution. Criminal Charges, there are a wide variety of actions that can be considered criminal. What judges really want to hear is an expression of contrition, word that the defendant is sorry for any harm caused while promising never to engage in such misconduct again. The message to anyone doing anything naughty in a public place will be, Smile, you're on Candid Camera. Like it or not, that is the system we have, even if it leaves the public unsatisfied with a penalty that can be considered too lenient or too harsh. These tags are much cheaper than prison, but must be less effective both as a deterrent and as a way of preventing further crimes. Such prisoners should have no property: their assets should be confiscated and sold to compensate their victims or to pay part of the cost of keeping them.
