Proportional sentences

It bothers me that seemingly petty crime like this gets a fairly heavy sentence, but crimes that to me seem to have caused far more harm get far less, or are simply not prosecuted at all.

And sure, Camelot spent 230k on dealing with it, but that doesn't at all mean that it was actually necessary. And perhaps they could and should have spent rather less had they fixed the holes beforehand.
