Life Should Mean Life
Today Craig Sweeney, a convicted paedophile was sentenced to life for abducting a toddler from her home. He will serve 5 years. Last week, a man who was convicted of raping a baby was told his life sentence meant he would serve a minimum of 8 years, rather than the original 6. What does this say about our legal system? Surely in cases like this, life should mean just that. If they're in prison, they can't reoffend. And in the end, it is as simple as that.
