estimated 109 billion Homo sapiens have entered terra firma
initially congregating in East Africa approx. 125,000 years ago, albeit
life expectancy and average life duration were not high relative to modern
ago or thereabouts Homo sapiens started to migrate from East Africa to populate the planet.
Over 97% of those 109b have lived under
by Capital Punishment and
Corporal Punishment. The majority of the
current 7.6b human population today live under Capital and Corporal punishment
edicts. Rulers in countries such as China,
Singapore, Russia, Vietnam, Indonesia,
the Arab States, Malaysia, Singapore ‘et al’ opine that for some
egregious crimes jail incarceration is
costly and an ineffective
Deterrent to further behavioural transgressions.
Those countries seek to expend their
Public Purse more so on health and
educating citizens that are or will become productive taxpayers.

Islam practices Sharia law where punishment is often carried out on a Friday,
either executions or floggings. The deterrent effect upon those required to
witness the application of punishment is cogent.
Early Capital Punishment practices
globally evidence horrific Punishments that
rulers of the era
transgressions from the masses by painful, frightening and often drawn
out executions in the public square.
Punishment previously sentenced in Australia
some dreadfully harsh punishments inflicted even 200 years ago.
Incarceration as a
Punishment has only been sentenced by some Western
Countries, during the
last scintilla of the 65,000 years circa that Homo sapiens advanced
beyond East Africa.
Building jails to house criminal offenders for more than a holding facility,
until court hearings and corporal and capital punishment was sentenced, has only
occurred in the last 300 years and only in some countries.
Countries that have diverted from that inherent

Great Britain, USA, Canada,
Brazil and Australia is each experiencing the
Baker's Dozen Unsustainable Problems
which are a testament that relying on jail
incarceration as the sole form of Punishment and
failed in those countries."
