Hammurabi's Code: It Was Just

By Emma Cruz

Was it Just

Some people belive that King Hammurabi's laws were not just or unfair. Well they were.Hammurabi's code was based off of the saying an eye for an eye. So say someone cut off your ear. They would have their ear cut off in return. Some people say that this was unfair. That they should just put them in jail. That violence is not the answer. Wel it was not but listen to this. If you were a slave and you got robbed, They would pay you. Pay, WE DID not pay our slaves. So think about it to yourself. If you got paid each time you were robbed. If all your stuff was replased. Is that just for you?
