Since criminals don't obey laws, is there any point in having laws?

Should we just scrap the entire legal system and live (and die) by the rule of the gun?

no, because that would make the wrongdoing commited by criminals a condoneable act, the only thing that the laws serve to do is to say what is and is not acceptable behavior

No, there should still be laws. Laws are put into place so that when the criminal is caught, they are prosecuted and brought to justice.

No laws means rogue police or no police, which can be very dangerous for a society.

The criminals have enjoyed their part now law should take its stand. We are living in civil society. So we must have some restrictions, some system to follow the rules. We are living in 2012 A.D and not 2012 B.C.

If we didn't have laws there would be anarchy! We are a country of laws. Although some seem ridiculous.
