Divis Sweeney BS: Suitable sentencing (60* d) BS: Suitable sentencing 17 Oct 06


Just watched a programme in which the singer formerly known as Boy George was given a court sentence of a public dressing down in America.
He was ordered to brush the streets.

Why can't the same be done over here ? Every week my local paper reports on scum who steal cars, rob pensioners and throw bottles at passing cars. Their sentence is a community service order. This includes feeding the goats in a local park, attending Whitewater Farm in the Mourne mountains to learn Mountain climbing, sailing, canoeing, paragliding and mountain biking.

There is rarely a week goes by when you read in the press about a weed called Pete Doherty of the pop group Babyshambles gets his last warning from a judge, how many warnings has he got ?

I understand there is a shortage of prisons, but the law needs to ignore the do gooders and make a sentence something these anti social scum never want to face again.
