The Roman punished their people by fines, beatings, banishment, slavery, execution if guilty of treason, and you get drowned in a river if guilty of killing your father, also slaves would get crusified


In America the punishments are either you go to prison or you get poral and sometimes if you do something really terrible you get killed.


Roman slaves did not have almost any rights even if they were free and they would get beaten for any little crime and crusified and also they were considered as property.


In America it is eligel for someone to do slavery and if their is a person who does slaves they get put in jail.
