Criminals getting slap on wrist

Did you think that sentences for criminals are already low? Do you think it is outrageous that thousands of sex offenders are being punished with just a caution? Are you outraged by prisoners being released early only to go and re-offend?

If you are outraged it’s just going to get worse. At present prisoners only actually do 50% of the sentence they are given but now the government are thinking of reducing that to 40%. This means that they will serve less than half of their sentence. Prison is not enough of a deterrent now and this will just make it worse.
