      Sorry to get a bit heavy but is it just me or does anyone else think less people should be going to prison but for longer?

      Example:

      1. Paedophile gets 2 years.

      2. Pensioner who didn't pay £800 council tax gets three months.

      Now surely the hardened criminals in this country need to go to prison for far far longer, and things like fines and fraud -> these people just need punishing in their pockets (sell their houses or something).

      Prison is for protecting the public from people who are dangers to society.

      Am I mad with my thinking? No wonder the prisons are full.

      Where did that one come from Koolkidda ?  Anyway in answer to your question, i think that the likes of pensioners who get prison sentences for coucil tax non payment is disgusting, they shouldn't be hit in their pocket either, they probably got in that mess in the first place cos they ain;t got enough dosh to pay for it so they should have help before they get in that mess.  As for harden criminals, the repeat offenders should have the book thrown at them as they have had their chances, and for first offenders I believe everyone should be given at least one chance, we all make mistakes in life.   End of another rant, second one today hehehe !!  ;D
