The iranian legal system is more focused on protecting the rights of crime victims ( and their relatives) than is the law in the united states. Should our courts move in this direction?

    In some cases that makes sense. One columnist has suggested that Bernie Madoff be lodged in a modest home and made to work to try to pay off the many people he defrauded.

    What do you think?

    Your first statement is without foundation. Since when is protecting the rights of crime victims involve beating protesters to death? Since when is jailing dissidents and holding and trying them in secret protecting the rights of crime victims?
    To me, the criminal legal system should be focused on a systematic enforcement of the laws with evidence, procedures, and substance that are in accordance with the constitution and laws, which most assuredly, is not the case in Iran.
