I hate the people who vandalize property with graffitti. I'd rather they be killed on the spot, but this is a good first step.

RENO, Nev. - The mayor of Las Vegas has suggested that people who deface freeways with graffiti should have their thumbs cut off on television.

“In the old days in France, they had beheadings of people who commit heinous crimes,” Mayor Oscar Goodman said Wednesday on the TV show “Nevada Newsmakers.”

Goodman said the city has a beautiful highway landscaping project and “these punks come along and deface it.”

“I’m saying maybe you put them on TV and cut off a thumb,” the mayor said. “That may be the right thing to do.”

Goodman also suggested whippings should be brought back for children who get into trouble.

Another panelist on the show, state university system regent Howard Rosenberg, said cutting off the thumbs of taggers won’t solve the problem and Goodman should “use his head for something other than a hat rack.”

However it would suck to be wrongly convicted and end up losing your thumb

The next step would be to require a thumbprint as proof of identification for getting your driver's license.

I would recommend spankings for cheerleaders caught having lesbian sex in public restrooms.

I don't want to be like the Chinese.

Can we start with breaking thumbs and see how that works?

I think there should be some part of the punishment that involves thumbs, though. What could it be....what could it be?
