Criminal Law in Three Sentences

"There are some people that we, as society, fear.  In order to control these people that would harm society, we have an outline of statutes that say you cannot do this and if you do we are going to punish you.  We are going to punish you by locking you up and killing you."

This quote is taken directly from one of my criminal law lectures.  It beautifully sums up criminal law in three sentences.
