Suspended Sentence.

I can't believe how many suspended sentences have been handed down in the judicial system lately. I can see how there can be a case for this verdict but tell me how you can you say yes you're guilty of manslaughter but we will give you a 3 year suspended sentence??? A 3 year jail term would have been too lenient!!!

Why in the world would you want someone to go to prison who made the worst mistake of their lives, not out of willful, knowledgeable, or intenful act? They probably already suffer from nightmares after unintentionally taking life of another human being and now they have to suffer some more?

I agree the sentence has to be suspended or someone else has to be released early to make room. I still don't want any more prisions and to reduce the number of prisioners.

Maybe there is no room left in the prisons?
