Why are people who may have participated in the 'Riots', who hand themselves in and have no 'previous', who did not break into a property, but merely walked into an already wrecked property and took an item, often of low(ish) value, being made an example of?
Is this because the people who are punishing them are rather to the right of centre? Or perhaps they are so disapproving of the riots that they are putting their foot down? Otherwise they may be being influenced by the statements of members of the government who are calling for these harsh sentences?
While justice should be swift, it should still be measured!
