When the "sentence" for a crime is not
"quickly" carried out, the hearts of
the people are filled with schemes
to do wrong!
I can't tell you how many times we've arrested
someone for a felony and by that evening or
the following morning, they're back on the street...
I know the punishment won't be as swift as we'd
like, but the repeat offenders are just that because
of the lack of punishment being handed down by
our justice system. Yes the jails are full but is that
a justifiable excuse?
Is it wrong to give the maximum penalty for the
first time offender?
