People Should Get a Taste of Their Own Medicine

I believe that people should get a taste of their own medicine, it'll do society a lot of good.

What I mean by that is as follows. If it is proven that someone tried to falsely imprison someone else. They should get the severest form of punishment their victim would have gotten.

For example, if it is proven that a woman falsely accused a man of rape, she should receive the sentence he would have gotten. After all she was willing to do that to an innocent man, it's only just that it be done to her.

Actually though, in the case of false rape accusations, it's even worse. There's an argument to be made that she should get an even worse punishment than he'd have gotten. Because she was not only going to put him in jail for a few decades, she would have also ruined every relationship and family connection he has! Nobody will ever trust him again, his life is basically over, he is a living dead man.

If society actually functioned this way, not only would false reporting of crimes go down drastically, but real victims would be believed. If when someone says they were raped you they know that if they're proven wrong they'd be severely punished, people would be much more likely to believe them.

Just to be clear, I'm not saying that if someone can't prove a rape accusation they should go to jail. I am saying though, that if it is proven that the accuser was lying they should get the same punishment they tried to inflict on someone else.

This is my first real entry into my journal. As you can see I'm not much of a writer. But I hope you at least enjoyed my writing somewhat.

Thank you for reading!
