I dunno man... If a person has to be removed from society for a time and doesn't get to participate in society why should they still get to vote as part of society? It just seems like a disconnect to me. I can't point to any historical danger, and it's possible that it would have no ill effect.Whoa, can't get anything by this guy. Thanks for admitting that there is no compelling reason to remove this specific right from felons.
What bad thing happened when someone let a rule breaker set school policy?
With certain classes it can be a good activity to communally agree to behavior rules. You can have the students talk through and discuss potential problems to come up with guidelines and solutions. This even works when there are a few students with behavior issues in a class. However, for each student with behavior issues in a group it gets more and more difficult. With 5 or more in a group of 25ish it's frankly impossible and turns into a joke.
So maybe I just proved myself wrong and it's fine to let criminals vote as long as their numbers don't meet a certain % of the population? That doesn't mean that it makes sense to me to give someone who chooses not to follow the rules of society a voice in that society...
