Crime and Punishment

Libertarians believe that our current justice system has many punishments that far outweigh the crimes committed. We believe that punishments should be proportional to the crime committed and should be fair and humane.

We advocate the following:

A. The abolition of special penalties imposed for crimes committed against police officers or government employees.

B. The abolition of the current practice of courts receiving a percentage of fines imposed.

C. Prison sentences should be served in their entirety.

D. The removal of the Three Strikes law and other de facto life sentences.

E. The abolition of capital punishment.
