Apparently a GOP state Rep in Montana misses the good old midieval days when a criminal could be whipped for their crimes, and has introduced legislation so a criminal can recieve “corporal punishment in lieu of incarceration.”  While it doesn't dictate stockades where the villagers could throw rotten vegetables, it does raise some interesting questions because the severity of punishment is supposed to be in line with the crime committed.
