Newark Advertiser letter: Tougher time
Words failed me at the pathetic sentences given to four people on the front of the Advertiser (Crime Gang Sentenced, September 9).
Jail time should be long, surely this is what punishment is about?
Who says crime doesn’t pay? It appears in today’s world it does and if prisons are full, bring back the death penalty.
I don’t see why murderers should be fed and kept warm when there are people who have to choose between heat and eat. — M. S. Clarke, Balderton.
