What is the difference “an eye for an eye” and “let the punishment fit the crime”?
Re: A question
An eye for an eye often it refers to capital punishment. You have murdered someone so you must pay for the murder by being put to death yourself

An eye for an eye is a biblical punishment form whereas let the punishment fit the crime is a more modern idea of punishment.
