I tell you what.

Try that out in Boston first and let us know how it goes.

BTW, this website give a list of the 20 most common felonies (2009 data).

Per your criteria, there would have been a one year total of over 10 million immediate public executions in a population of 309 million people. About 1 in 30. Morality aside, good luck with that. This is not an unarmed populous like Eastern Europe.
