I understand what you are saying, Do you think laws against

crime are a deterrent? I ask because you said: "Calling the police did not prevent the homicide in your example. The punishment is irrelevant at that point."

Perhaps not for the dead person, but for continuance of "civilization" it is still relevant?

I understand that murderers are going to murder, but would there be more murder if there were no civil consequences?

I appreciate your time to give your perspective. Thanks :)
