Would the United States would be better off or worse off if we followed the code of Hammurabi as our law code?

    well the code of hamarabi stresses a system of an eye for an eye. Therefore, if it was used today this is what would happen. If you chopped off someone's arm you wouldnt get a trial and a judge but someone would chop you arm off. Also, there is a class system back then where a noble man back then would get a less severe penalty than a commoner. I would personally not want to live in this system in the US
