Collateral Damage

Collateral damage Away from knife crime today, which the media is full of, it seems to be about time that the remote lawmakers looked at people being more important than property or finance. Stab someone to death, you could conceivably receive 7 years - defraud people and get 15! Mmmmm, food for thought really, no wonder people have such a low value of life!

I agree with you totally only yesterday in my local paper a man already convicted for fraud and serving 9 years has just been told that if he fails to pay bay a smallish amount of money (compared to the amount that he fraudulently obtained)within 6 months they are going to add another 5 years to his sentence, whilst in the same paper a 69 year old man found guilty of sexually assaulting a 10 year old child only got a year - yep that's right 1 year in prison.
When are the people who set the guidelines for the length of imprisonment look into and change the amount of time being served to the severity of the crime in other words someone like that man convicted of fraud getting a shorter sentence and a longer one for the 69 year old that has stolen a child's innocence and make him serve a longer sentence.
