No. It's barbaric and I don't support it being used on anyone.

What purpose does it serve except to feed the bloodlust of the basest of human instincts? It doesn't deter crime, it doesn't bring back the victim or restore their family to the way they were, it doesn't salvage or rehabilitate the offender's life. Nor does it correct the underlying social problems that often lead to crime. And mistakes can be made.
Get used to me. Black, confident, cocky; my name, not yours; my religion, not yours; my goals, my own; get used to me. -Muhammad Ali
