It's called sandwich board justice if anyone cares.
There have been a few cases where... odd judges... have have criminals do stuff like this for their punishment.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_v._Gementera
for example. Some could argue it's cruel and unusual punishment but the form of punishment has been upheld in appeals. But it's not exactly unusual since public humiliation has been a form punishment since the dark ages, probably even further back...

pic unrelated, just spreading the message

no offense but you should have posted this somewhere relevant like the politics board or somewhere like that, here on post where it's only tangentially(the whole protect the children thing) related you're going to get thumbed down

Gun control is a very serious debate right now so just getting the information out there every once in a while would help. A few red thumbs won't hurt.

people aren't going to take you or you're issue seriously if you try and bring it up where it isn't relevant

Public lynching was common practice back then too.

But you're right, this kind of punishment is anything but cruel.

Public executions were more for the people's entertainment and not so much for punishment.
Think more like pillories...

Quit spreading the message. This isn't a political place. Half the people here are too young to even own a gun.

18 to own a gun
18 to sign up to FJ
I know people lie but still... Even if it's only half, that's plenty.

yeah you have to be 18 to own a gun, but you can get licensed to use one at 11.
