Is it bad I sometimes want flogging to be reintroduced. Because these people deserve it on top of a prison sentence. Mind you even if they do go to prison it'll likely be a short sentence cause they stole from poor people.

hang 'em by their ties. Great power should come with great responsibilities. A blunted sword of damocles is proof of a corrupt system.
