BBC News – Serious criminals to serve two-thirds of jail term in justice shake-up
Yes, definitely a step in the right direction. However, I believe that serious criminals should serve the whole term of their sentence.
What is the point of laying down a punishment that the criminals know is just for show, knowing full well they will not serve the full time.
Sentences should act as a deterrent. And this is definitely a step in the right direction.
Teenagers convicted of terrorism in England and Wales could receive whole-life terms under sentencing reforms described by the government as the most radical in almost 20 years.
We are taught, at a very young age, the difference between right and wrong. We know what is the moral thing to do.
Terrorism is wrong. We all know that.
Therefore it is right that terrorists of any age are punished for their actions.
I truly hope that the government pushes ahead with these changes to suitably punish all terrorists and child killers.
