Reading my local paper sums up the state of it. Someone fishing without a license gets fined 2x what the drink drivers get. How can the former possibly be worse?

Nice try.

I'll elaborate, he was at a carp fishing lake. Carp fishing is a catch and release sport in the UK.

It makes no sense at all. Reading the local paper, you only get a fine for beating someone up.

I don't really trust papers but some of the sentences for violent offenders are quite clearly a joke.

Damn you got banned quick.

Do they permanently employ someone to track you?

Generally speaking i think that what is deemed legal and illegal is correct however our sentencing laws are completely out of whack and are both too harsh and too soft.

So in terms of being too soft we have instances like Muslims raping girls and being given suspended sentences because of cultural reasons for example. In terms of being too harsh we allow prison sentences for non payment of fines or drug abuse despite the fact that while illegal and stupid, the people committing the crime are not really a danger to others (therefore a fine and a criminal record are much better punishments than wasting money on them in prison).

Well compare to the South African justice system I can't complain. Most major crimes are solved, and offenders of serious offences put behind bars. Sentencing seems to be an issue though. My main fault is that, in common with many justice systems, it seems too concerned with small fry.
