What many have long suspected, now confirmed by a young man, whose life has in my view been ruined by the fact that he was never properly punished. The courts, prison, and the whole Justice System are not just there for punishment on behalf of the victim, but also to protect that criminal from losing themselves in a life of crime. And in that respect it has failed. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7412978.stm He openly admits that had the Prison system not been so comfortable, he strongly believes that he would not have been caught in a cycle of crime. Tough on Crime, Tough on the causes of crime? I don't think so!
