Victim faces jail while criminals get fines

What the hell is happening to this country? Why are good people facing prison time while criminals get low fines? That is what is happening. Just ask Jacob Smyth who chased after two thugs who stole from his shop. He then got in a fight with them and is now in hospital. He faces 6 months in prison while the thieves get £80 fines even though they went back to steal more when Mr Smyth was in hospital. How is that justice?

Is it any wonder shoplifting has increased when the shoplifters don’t even face prison time for committing crime? All they face is an on the spot fine.
