Angry, Upset, Frighteed and Scared

A woman from Kent has written a letter to a prisoner who burgled her house telling him how his actions have ruined her life she used the words above. These scum never think about  this side of their crimes. Luckily I have never been burgled but have met many such victims, some even have to sell their houses because they can’t face going back inside. They do read out victims statements before sentencing such people but these are normally ignored because of the sentencing guidelines and emotive speeches by defence counsel. Should a thief who has not had much effect on the victim receive a heavier sentence than one who caused great upset? I definitely think the former should get a heavier sentence because this would have a deterrent effect. Lock them all up and somehow stop them having kids to follow in their footsteps.

Three strikes and out!
