Read this, and tell me one good purpose it serves. Apparently, in the UK, there is such a backlog of court cases that the penalty for several serious offenses ranging from burglary to sex with children has been reduced to sending these assholes home with a caution. This means they have a criminal record, but don’t have to worry about, oh, say, the consequences of committing those crimes, like a fine, community service or jail. So what’s the fucking point of saying, “Don’t do that again!”? I can just hear it now. “Or what? You’ll tell me to not do it again again? (ooo! I’m shaking in my boots!” Can the UK go to hell in a handbasket any faster?
