We must distinguish evil crimes (eg, indecently assaulting children) from stupid crimes (eg, a returned resident having a garage sale during isolation). It is not fair to send the garage sale man to jail, but not the man who indecently assaulted a child.
Support reforms to the sentencing guidelines so that heinous acts are dealt with firmly. Sexual predators who are convicted of indecently assaulting children should go to jail.
Stopping waste on trivial charges
Taxpayer resources should not be wasted on prosecutions for possessing trivial amounts of cannabis. We should regulate cannabis locally, helping victims of addiction instead of punishing.
