Crime & Punishment...

Interesting little poll over on [livejournal.com profile] failing_angels journal...

So, some time ago I aired some views which were not universally well recieved.

When I then read about one of the alternatives and the consequenses I can't help but wonder if all the apologists who seem to think that prisoners shouldn't be punished too harshly (The poor wee mites, they only did it because society is soooo nasty and hard) would think the same if they were the victims of one of the people who were let out into the community early or not given a proper sentence at all...

Oh well, at least society can save 9 million pounds, because the suffering caused to innocent citizens must clearly have a price tag if that's an equation that works.
In my world it's not worth it, but hey, I'm a barbaric fascist...
Apparently ;-)

And the problem is?
No seriously, I don't get it...
Prison isn't meant to be a holiday camp, it's meant to be a place you'd rather not be...

The chief inspector's report revealed 43% of prisoners, down from 64% in 2005, said staff treated them with respect.
Excellent, it's going the right way then. I have a bit of an issue with the idea that police should respect criminals...

Ooohhh, I'm in a ranty mood now...
