I am one of the hated ?majority who feel that prison should be feared, the idea of the second sentence cause terror and the Americans are right over the third.AMP wrote: ↑Sat Feb 08, 2020 8:16 pmI don't think prisoners should be tagged, they should serve their time.
It's not a punishment
And if the prisons are too full, then sentence them to less time.
But let's not pretend that justice is served or we are being tough on crime by tagging them.
I understand it provides flexibility, incentivises good behaviour, reduces the prison bill - but that is an endightment of the system.
And if they are so dangerous they need to be monitored, then don't release them.
We know from Mr Jeffrey Weinstein that they are unreliable. He DID NOT remove his tag. Unfortunately the battery died.
I would actually go further; if a person is tried AND CONVICTED for one offence and then tried (even at the same time) for an identical offence then that would be the second etc. As for TV, internet, phones etc, trips outside - you are joking; they are there to be punished, not mollycoddled. I would encourage proper education for a career outside after they do the full time. If they don't obey the rules in prison then add time - a a penalty for their crimes?
Just think of those who assaulted boys at CH; do you really want them to live in comfort at your expense for their crimes?
