    So much for the problem of rampage murders being solved by public executions.



    Meaning either they have an escape route planned or they were planning on dying either by being shot by responding police officers or taking their own lives via suicide.

    Based on this wiki article that I posted earlier, the latter two seems to be a popular route with mass murderers.

    A swift execution upon conviction isn't a deterrent in a culture that embraces death.

    Nah, for the very few mass killers that did come out alive after their shooting rampage a public execution would only serve as a spectacle for the barbaric culture that made them.

    In the stands, tens of thousands of Roman citizens waited with half-bored curiosity to see what would happen next and whether it would be interesting enough to keep them in their seats until the next part of the "big show" began.
    With a flourish, trapdoors in the floor of the arena were opened, and lions, bears, wild boars and leopards rushed into the arena. The starved animals bounded toward the terrified criminals, who attempted to leap away from the beasts' snapping jaws...The crowd of Romans began to laugh at the dark antics before them. Soon, they were clapping and yelling, placing bets on which criminal would die first, which one would last longest and which one would ultimately be chosen by the largest lion.

    And as a deterrent to those who might copy them

    A muderer, rapist, adulterer, or capital perjurer, after being put to death never commits any crime ever again, and

    Thus, putting to death criminals guilty of capital crime deters would-be criminals from committing those crimes, and reduces the overall amount of crime, because there are fewer criminals in the world.

    A thief who is made to pay restitution to those he stole from is not likely to steal again.

    Thus, forcing thieves to pay restitution deters would-be thieves from committing the crime, and reduces the overall amount of crime.

    Someone who assaults someone, after being flogged, is not likely to assault anyone else.

    Thus, flogging attackers reduces the overall amount of crime, and deters would be attackers from committing the crime, thereby reducing the overall amount of crime.
