I have often thought that crimes should be sentenced based on the social status of the victim. For example, I am of a superior class, so if I were murdered then the perpetrator should receive the maximum sentence. If a commoner from the gutter classes is murdered, the sentence could be less as they were less worthy in society. If someone robbed me, then as I am wealthier and of better breeding than a worker, the robber would have stolen items of more value than if he had robbed someone with a 'job'. Therefore, his sentence should be greater.

Am I right to believe, that my superiority to commoners presupposes a greater significance of my victim-hood in a crime?
