That depends, would the highway patrol support scarlet letters on their badges indicating which officers have been involved in shootings?

Some people share cars. This could make a significant other appear to be the guilty party.

No. If you're so dangerous you need to be branded (sex offender or drunk driver) you shouldn't be free.

Can we brand a scarlet A on the cheeks of HIV pos people?

Why would an A make sense. If you are resorting to branding you may as well be expressive. Brand HIV+ or something of the sort. Very clear to all.

We have something like that in Ohio. We call 'em party plates. They're yellow license plates that are given to people who have had more than 2 DUI's.

Fuck that shit. If we are discussing scarlet letters and criminals we should brand sex criminals with such things. If people really feel the need to do something about drunk driving make people who repeat offend have a permanent breathalizer in the car. I know they do this in certain cases but they should do this with all of them and boom problem solved. On to the next issue!

I don't agree on the first offence. Perhaps on the second or third, unless someone died as a result. I don't see what it would accomplish other than shaming them.

Shaming is the most powerful form of public discourse next to war.

shaming only works on people who have shame, there's a big layer of society which doesn't recognise the concept, and some who will actively embrace and even celebrate that which was intended to shame them. In the UK, ASBOs (antisocial behaviour orders) were supposed to shame people as well as restrict them from a particular type of behaviour, but the feral youth turned them into a competition to see who could get the most ASBOs, actually committing offences in the hope of increasing their ASBO count.

I dunno we'd be like the Muslims then, marking the Jews and xtians as subject to the jizya. Not a religion we want to copy

We can drive a metal rod through their septums, or make them dye their hair weird colors, or something.
