    The liberals of Seattle will not recognize the race violence of black on white and the dangers of their acceptance of drugs that are turning a once decent city into another Chicago.

    I wonder if we were to implement public lashings would crime rates go down? Let's say up to 10 – 20 sets of 10+ lashings depending upont the violence of the crime, why do I say sets, because the criminal needs time to heal in between lashings. Oh and after the lashings the crook don't get any pain releavers, just the proper melds to prevent infection.
