Only jail the most serious offenders?

And how many innocent victims will be jailed for violence in protecting their property from thieving scum?

I think that given the availability of GPS tags (when they're not being put on false legs) allows for much smarter use of community sentences (as long as breaches of curfew etc are properly dealt with)

There's always litter to pick/ditches to dig/fences to paint/graffiti to remove and leaves to pick up!

I'm not sure I see the connection? I don't think he's saying don't punish them, he saying send to jail. It's not like they stay in for any length of time.

Why can't they all just be put down?? The organs could be harvested and sold and the bodies could fuel the national grid. Everyone likes renewable energy....

Because the fuckers would have to breed for it to be truly renewable, and we don't want that ffs!

Most of the scutters have a brood before they're even old enough to get sent down. So no, I dont wanna encourage it, but as its already happening lets utilise it!!!

Fuck the benefits system off, use the nations scum for forced labour/organs/bio fuel etc, and within a few years we will live in a utopia where everyone gets free milk, bread, gas and electric as reward for being a decent member of society.

Right, I've gotta finish off smoking this rock and go back to work.

It'll only work if there is a deterrent for pulling a sicky/not turning up to do your community punishment.

Something along the lines of, for every day missed you get a weeks custodial, not excuses.

And if you're a footballer p*ssing off abroad, make that 6 weeks goal to be served prior to leaving the country.

I see what you did there.
Doesn't actually make sense like but I still see it.

I notice that the experts on these matters always suggest that sentences be more lenient. They have NEVER stated that the system is ok as it stands, or that penalties for a given offence are currently not severe enough. They also tend not to live, work or otherwise frequent areas where they might come face to face with the results of their do gooding proposals.

Tree hugging poseurs, hanging is too good for them!

I totally agree! By enlarge the majority do actually do the work but an effective enforcement mechanism would be a must. I personally would rather see those types offender painting some old ladies fence fetching and carrying and generally making reparation for their wrongs than have them sitting in a cell doing F All all day long.

We need to start executing people again. Keeps the prison population down, and the rate of re-offending is 0%
The rate of re-offending is 0% after being convicted. :)

How would you react if the scrote who burgled your house turned up on Community Service to paint your fence as a punishment ?

I'd bury the bastard in the garden and swear he never turned up.

Let's not dismiss the idea too quickly. There are avenues of punishment in which we could be investing together with an element of cultural diversity we are told we need to embrace...

Prison population reduced? Check.

Multiculturalism celebrated? Check.

Equitable punishment? Check.

Low chance of re-offending? Check.

At least you'd get your topsoil turned over for free.

Although slightly more realistic outcome of looking sideways at your fence painter would be him having your balls off and sitting in the local getting full on the contents of your wallet before you've bled out.

And how many innocent victims (of the thieving scum) will be jailed for violence ("serious crime") in protecting their property from the thieving (minor crime) scum?
There you Pebbles. Most 'normal' people will have seen the 'connection'
