So if being gay is against the law where you live and there is a death penalty as a possible consequence, you know what to do. Can't be any clearer!!
One thing I believe it that when people are charged with offences because of false allegation, and it is proved to be false in a court of law, the accuser should serve TWICE the sentence the accused would have received if the offence happened. This would deter many from making false allegations.
Also, imagine if the sentencing for a proven murderer didn't involve the death penalty for the murderer, but instead the death penalty for someone close to the murderer (e.g. their wife, mother or child) and the murderer had to watch them die!! Bet the murder rate would reduce overnight!!
No it wouldn't. You can't have dictators that make insane rules, otherwise you have
total chaos. You can't go around murdering innocent people simply because someone
else committed the crime. In so doing, you're guiltier than the person that actually did
the crime. Many murderers have no conscience so they would love it if you murdered
their family instead of them.
