I'm all for these practices. 1. Capital punishment should be via organ removal for prisoners that are viable donors. If surgans can't be found to break the hypotcratic oath then the convict should be euthanized with nitrogen gas (lack of oxygen) while tied down to the operating table, then when declared dead the surgeons can go ahead and remove the organs. One executed murder could save at least 7 lives with the critical organs alone. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJkpDNwM0lk 2. Prisoners should continue to work for society by doing slave labor. With moder technology it would be possible to put on GPS tracking & Electroshock collars/leg claps so the prisoners could work even in areas without physical containment. Off course the electroshock collars/claps this might violate some prisoner treatment ethics laws, so those laws will need to be replied. 3. I greatly advocate medical experiments on prisoners, voluntary for reduced sentences for regular convicts and involuntary for those on death row. Ideally the development of cybernetic treatments in which arrays of electrodes could be inserted into the brains of any harden violent offender, turned on and instantly convert them into harmless lovable hard working living Buddhas would be the ideal goal. If such a treatment was developed and testing reveals equal or lower crimes rates then the general population I would require all types of criminals the treatment has been proven effective on to undergo these cybernetic lobotomies instead of prison terms. Why put them in prison if they can be "cured" and be render equally or even less likely to commit crimes then the general population? If you demand punishment/justices/revenge I would think erasing a persons personality and replacing it with a publically sanction one is fitting punishment even for a murder as it could be interpreted as executing without actually killing the body or even the mind, just the killing or imprisoning the "soul". If they are later found wrongfully convicted the implants can be deactivated, this greatly reduces the harm caused by wrongful imprisonment and executions. Of course a variety of ethics laws would need to be changed to even allow testing and development for this let alone mass implementation.
