esp if they smash £200 of windows to get at those £5 each time.

We have similar losers here and it strains my general preference for lighter sentences when the same petty crimes are done dozens of times. At that point, I believe the extra costs of long term incarceration are offset by recurring court, insurance and victim costs. For that small minority much longer sentences seem more like common sense.

Still, I hope he doesn't die from this shit. I thought a week or two was already iffy health-wise.
