Dbq Law 23 Analysis

153 Words1 Page
Law 21 clearly states that if a thief has stolen property, he shall be put to death and hanged at the scene(Doc D). While others may say this is fair and that he deserves it, this law does not demarcate between official documents or a toy. Many of our youth have played harmless tricks on their peers and if they 're caught, even if it’s a dare, they shall die a painful and torturous death. This removes one man from society and it lowers the moral of the city and in turn, Babylonian, crippling it. This also means that the thief will never learn his lesson and his relatives may be in an outraged state with the government. On the other hand, if the thief is not caught, law 23(Doc D) announces that the government will replace all lost property.
