Thank you very much for that mental image.



ETA: Ugh. I think that emoticon just made it worse.
Sorry - was only kidding if that helps...

To be fair, Picard did question Tashat about reviewing laws and customs and she said "they listed nothing of punishment." That implies she was through with her research but maybe needed to ask the question in person once she arrived at Edo.
I picture Tasha getting a list of rules: no murder, no rape, no trampling newly-planted flowers, etc., and passing it on to everyone going on shore leave. There were no punishments listed (because everything's punished the same way), but Tasha incorrectly took for granted that the punishments would be proportional: murder, rape, etc. would be punished severely, while trampling flowers would be punished lightly.

This is the REAL problem with "Justice":

"Sure we can run. Right, Commander!?!?!"

That sounds like a line from a Saturday morning animated TNG.

"We sure can!" (off they go in not a run but a brisk jog.)

The funniest thing is that as a teenager Wesley was not trying to get his leg over the whole time, mind you he was showing off.

it still just doesn't work as an explanation. If you're investigating the laws of a society, punishment is a major part of that, and if she's researching it, and coming up with no results, she should be getting more suspicious, not jumping to conclusions based on nothing.
