Effectively ZERO actual punishments for any of these dossers then. What a waste of taxpayers money and court time. Pathetic. No wonder the world is going to hell.

It wasn’t so long ago a child stealing an apple because they had no food to eat was deported to Australia. What deterrent is there nowadays? If you commit a crime, be prepared to do time. Sadly, the punishment applied is too soft.

I think perhaps people forget how easy it can be to find yourself in a situation where it’s a case of wrong place, wrong time. We shouldn’t be so quick to judge and make nasty comments. These people are serving whatever punishment has been judged to fit their crimes, a second hand jury in the form of the pubic is not necessary.
