Crime and sentencing

 by Sheldonboy , Wed Jan 16, 2019 7:46 pm

I see some clever arse in the Government wants to do away with short prison sentences.
ie: anything up to six months. This apparently will free up around 6000 jail places. The thinking is that short sentences do not rehabilitate people anyway and that they are a waste of time.
What about the punishment aspect of these sentences, if someone breaks into my house and they get caught, I want to know that they have gone to jail, even if it's only for four months or so. That should be long enough to get a bloody good kicking in The Green.
