Re-thinking the death penalty, and labels on fruit

I’ve been wondering if maybe we have the death penalty all wrong.

Maybe instead of using the death penalty to deter people from committing crimes for which the death penalty probably isn’t a sufficient deterrent, we should use it to very effectively deter people from committing minor offences.

I’m proposing we make labelling fruit with useless labels like this one an offence punishable by death – who’s with me? (Photo: author. Lime: Tropical North Queensland).
