It then proceeded to say the boy had 129 previous convictions. 129.. how do you rehabilitate people like that.
Used to see that all the time in the papers. Remember a girl from Strabane with 2 or 3 hundred. Surely there should be a threshold of say X number of convictions means Y years in jail. Multiple offenders should be getting harsher sentences.
Driving a car illegally is a sure way to wrack up the conviction numbers: no license, no insurance, speeding, defective tyres, driving when banned. There's 5 separate convictions.
If the cops know you are into drugs/crime, then there is more chance they stop you when driving. The cycle continues of driving offences for serial offenders as they know it kinda means nothing in the overall scheme of their rap sheet.
Exactly. If the number of offences actually count then it might act as a deterrent or put the culprits away.
