Prison as a last resort

Our justice system is a bad joke. The CPS has failed to update a third of its files resulting in court cases being dropped even if a prosecution could have happened.

When it comes to ASBOs they are shown to be useless. People with ASBOs are given them because they terrorise the community but they are being increasingly shown to be a badge of honour for young scum and now only as a last resort will these yobs ever be sent to prison for breaking their ASBO and even then the maximum sentence they will receive will be two years.

What has this country come to when people who terrorise the community are left to get away with it when the government won’t do anything?
