Inca Empire for Kids
Crime & Punishment
advertisement

There was almost no crime in the Inca empire because punishment was swift and harsh. If you were caught stealing, for example, your feet and hands would be cut off.  If you lived through your punishment, you received a new job. Everyone in the Inca had a job. Your job would be to sit by the gate to the city, or in the plaza, and tell people about your crime. Although the state fed and clothed you, you were suppose to beg for food. That was part of your punishment. This greatly discouraged others from following your example.
