  1. so, in order for a ban on “unusual” punishment to have any kind of validity, there would have to be a set definition of “usual” punishment, “usually”.

  2. That’s one school of thought; another is that criminal actions, being unusual behavior for socially well-adapted people, merits an unusual response. I think Llewellyn might be more of the latter frame of mind than of the former.

  3. Unusual punishment isn’t banned, it’s cruel *and* unusual. You can be cruel, but only if it’s normal, and you can be unusual, as long as it’s not cruel.

    This is why you can get away with the death penalty, or with making a guy to sleep in a literal dog house.

    • actually, the criteria is that the punishment in question is necessary- for example, if Superman was real, and a Kryptonian committed a crime, you could justify either keeping them under red sun radiation, or possibly a Kryptonite cell.
