Career Burglars Should get Longer Sentences says Independent PCC David Munro
Career burglars are vicious, uncaring people who must be stopped. Longer sentences keep them in prison so they can’t burgle - it’s as simple as that. Normally, I’m strongly in favour of prisons being places of rehabilitation rather than punishment, and I’ve funded help for those leaving prison so they’re Encouraged not to re-offend. But burglars with a string of convictions need to face up to the consequences of their actions.
