While most spanking/whippings should be non-abusive, there is a place for STRONG SCOURGING in prisons etc. In places like Singapore, the backsides of prisoners are usually split open from the impact of the implement used to punish the offender.
Instead of placing human beings in what are reality cages for years on end, why not offer short term sentences that include harsh corporal punishment as an option?
CP works, and it would save both prisoners and society a meangfull alternative to human zoos!
The blueness of a wound cleanseth away evil: so do stripes the inward parts of the belly.
