In Islam people get hands choped off for stealing, but here in America we have a constitution that state's it is illegal to conduct "Cruel and unusual punishment." (Disclaimer here-that I am not expressing 100% support for all American guidelines- but can at least feel safe knowing that in a wrongful or alleged crime, one may perhaps complete undeserved time, and not be maimed for life.) Another point, criminals do come in many forms, (including wheelchairs).
