pro= politicians deserve harder punishment if they committed in crimes(such as corruption) because if they did crimes they also harms lot or even whole society directly or indirectly(bigger effects than crimes committed by common people). with great power comes great responsibility and consequences.
contra= law is universal. No matter who did the crime they will get the same punishment.
Why single out politicians? Teachers shape the next generation, lawyers bend the laws to suit their needs, police have authority that can easily be abused. Why should politicians get harsher punishments? The general consensus is because they broke our trust, but really it seems to come down to the fact that people don't like politicians. It is easier to dehumanize someone you dislike, so some groups get singled out.
the harder punishment should be admitted by others side such as some citizens because the politician sometimes did the wrong choice. and nowadays there are a lot of unfair judgement cases
