Eighth Amendment

Bail, fines, punishment
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

What doe this mean??
Punishment and bail should be equal to the severity of the crime.

Why this picture??

I think the creative punishment is a neat up and coming thing. Apparently this man was caught stealing from walmart so instead of years in prison, he had to stand on the corner and announced to everyone what he did. His punishment is as severe as his crime.
