I think that by far the most effective form of Judicially-Implemented Physical Correction is carried out in Singapore.
The defendant is only struck on the buttocks, but the punishment necessitates removal of all clothing. The flaws ameliorated in the Occidental implemented be that it's only administered to males and and only prison staff are in attendance.
Including the victim in the witness gallery is certainly nothing new; lethal injections are administered with the press gathered and the family members of the condemned's victim(s)
Why not then for the meting out of corporal punishment for lesser offenses against juvenile defendants?
I propose that a "docket" of sorts be per-designated court-date where all caning sentences adjudicated within a given period be carried out on the same day.
For example, Saturday July 6th, for all canings sentenced for the month of June. All of the victims of the respective offenses will have the opportunity to be there and the right to be tried by a jury of one's peers will be tempered by the requirement that all jurors of a given conviction will be required to witness the outcome of their findings.
The defendants, male and females, will first be medically screened by a doctor of the same gender to determine that she or he can withstand the minor to moderate analgesia and discomfort of a rattan caning to the buttocks.
Having been thus cleared for the punishment, the defendants will remain naked and will be escorted an elevated dais where the canning "A"-frame is located. The defendants will be required to keep their hands on top of their heads and face the assembled victims.
Puberty will by no means be a consideration for the medical staff in determining the suitability of the punishment, however, boys with prematurely developed genitalia will be afforded extra protection in the event the implement miss the buttocks; the testicles will at no time be at risk of injury.
The person administering the caning will remain anonymous and will remain on the dias along with a Court representative.
The representative will read the nature of the conviction, the charges and the amount of cane-strokes to be administered.
It is my belief that if juveniles are required to appear disrobed not only in the presence of the victim of their own transgression but before a conclave of all of the Judicial Periods, the humiliation will be enough that they never will repeat their offenses.
A female victim, for example, a shopkeeper,may have been defrauded by a female shoplifter and will likewise only be redeemed by seeing their offender humbled and hurt, but also the abject shame of the pubescent males standing hands atop their heads to destroy the last of their modesty.
It is my opinion that if a group of defendants had to come to grips with the fact that the assembled victims were seeing just how freakish and out-of-proportion their bodies are, they will be humbled onto the narrow path.
I know as a male that if I had been robbed or cheated by a male offender, the presence of female offenders, mortified by their bodies, I would derive some level of compensation.
