    • Should aim to reduce crime
    • should set an example and reflect desires of society.
      • in some societies death penalty is okay, and others it isn't
    • Isn't about unhappiness for offender. balance ideas of justice with punishment
    • Agree with protection as it aims to protect society and create good
    • support reform. brings positive outcome for everyone
    • support deterrence. reduce crime and create good.
      • If punishment is too harsh, may cause more suffering
    • retribution may be acceptable if it fits in with society
    • retribution brings about more suffering. not only for criminal, but for their families.
