Hi. Welcome to the site. Please check out the About Us, and if you have a question about crime and/or punishment, perhaps look at some previous questions along those lines first.
Welcome to Anarchy101 Q&A, where you can ask questions and receive answers about anarchism, from anarchists.

Why does this exist when yahoo! answers has tons of questions like this already?

The goal of yahoo answers is entirely different than the goal of this site. Yahoo is a general interest site (and the Q&A reflects this). @101 answers questions by more-or-less educated & experienced anarchists. Our target is non-anarchists & other anarchists.

Anarchists (generally) believe in the principle of self-determination and self-sufficiency. This is an example of that principle in action.

Just a small recommendation: I just spent some time composing a lengthy response, and was distracted by other things IRL here, and then finished the comment, to only find it was "timed out". Perhaps a longer time out, would do wonders... Otherwise, you are risking the lives of keyboards everywhere! ;-)

Also: ask.yahoo.com has ceased operations. The people at Y! are idiots... they've consistently closed down/sold every unique/useful service they hosted.

Ask.metafilter.com is a good general question site for those mourning Yahoo! Answers. But it's a big wide web, and there's room for everyone!
