There are many different things which have changed over time, with one of the things being how we now punish different people for different crimes, rather than just going over the top like we did in the past. There are still some people who like to call for the death penalty on a regular basis, but we as humans are better than that.

What our aim is here, is to take a look at some of the crimes that have seen their punishment changing over the years, while also discussing whether the punishment does always fit the crime. Are we being too harsh on some and too easy on others? That is what we are looking to find out.
