Culture of Rome and USA
Judges made court decisions from trials and evidence, like today. The punishment is fit to the crime commited for both Rome and the U.S.A. The punishments the Romans had were beatings, banishment, slavery, and fines. One of the big punishments were execution, if guilty of treason and patricide. If a person killed their father, they were to be drowned in a river. Meanwhile in the U.S.A., they have banishments, beatings, fines, and very rarely they get executed.
