Because freezing people SHOULD go against enlightened 23rd Century standards of justice?
So should the death penalty...
In "The Menagerie," Commodore Mendez says that violation of General Order 7 -- the prohibition of any contact with Talos IV -- carries the only death penalty left on the books. Considering what the Talosians were capable of, I'd say there was a pretty good reason for that.
In light of some of what the Enterprise encountered later on, though, this seems either overblown or too uniquely applied. How about hands-off/no visit for Organia? Or Triskelion? Or the world of the Metrons, which they did have an exact location for while pursuing the Gorn ship?
