If these crimes were committed today, how would the punishments differ?
Why do we punish criminals today? (To deter, punish, pay back into society,
remove them from society?)
How would you change the ways in which we punish offenders now?
Are there any crimes for which we should still have the death penalty?
Would this deter offenders? Do you think it did back in 1786?
you have finished, why not have a look at how crime and punishment changed
over time by looking at a similar calendar
