Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted. <--- that is the eight amendment. i am sure this is one way outdated cuz lets face it in mew your it is a $300 fine for honking you horn at certain spots. and the banking fees are insane, the government at one point should look these over. not to mention what is cruel about testing on humans is we are testing on animals. they are already in cages. and some there because the way this country is now it is an easier life than on the street.( not all and it is a low number.) but it seems that trying to survive in this country at time seems cruel when your hounded by student loans. or you do what you love and a large portion of your paycheck is gone before you see it and they are all you'll get it back at the end of the year maybe. and then you go to grants.gov see how much money is out there that they are giving away and you don't quailfy for but you possibly contribute to. so how is the eighth amendment relevant?
Kyle Grayson You're kinda all over the place there, but the "cruel and unusual punishments inflicted" is the part that I was referring to. See, since they're testing the product, they don't know exactly what it's going to do, so it might cause medical problems. We can't treat any prisoner like that, because if we can do it to one group (pedophiles), then we can do it to others, and still others. It's part of what makes us a civilized society, we don't do things like that to our prisoners, no matter how awful their crime. We just lock them up with other criminals and let them get shivved in the shower.
No, you can't add drug users and drug traffickers, because they never did anything wrong, you sicko.
In any case, Brian Rogers is right saying it's a cruel and unusual punishment... you might want to think about your mental health even entertaining such an idea.
Because a lot of people who are convicted are innocent. I think it was in like, the early 80's or something where they found out that over 50% of the people they had convicted were innocent. That and killing people, and doing experiments on them is inhumane. That's the kind of shit that the Joker did in Batman Arkham Asylum. He was using the inmates to test his virus.
Kyle Grayson The 8th amendment protects someone being executed from having a contaminated needle used on them. With that in mind, how do you think the 8th amendment applies to testing drugs on people? Yeah, your rant sounds kinda stupid when you just take a second and actually THINK!
