Slap someone and you ONLY get a caution!

Laws are so inconsistent in this country its so sad!!! This person slaps someone and only gets a caution. THAT IS ASSAULT!!! no one has the right to touch anyone no matter how IRATE they are or any other emotions they feel! What is going ?????

But if some one else does the same tomorrow and sits in front of a different Judge or same they might get more than a caution or not even a caution!

Yet if your child misses school then the parents get taken to court get fined thousands, social service get involved and potentially get could get a prison sentence (not that I agree with children missing school ), or even for minor crimes such as throwing a cigarette butt on the floor unintentionally because you missed the bin!

In my humble opinion there should be a consistency across the board and all punishment must reflect the crime and not the judges mood!

It would be a better place.

Tiggerfantoo The justice in this country (UK) is completely stupid. You get as little as 6 years for murder, yet someone who refused to pay their council tax gets 10 years... I often wonder how on earth these so called judges qualified

GregSee1 Sadly, that's the world we live in today. I think it was about a year ago that some kid in the USA got six months for sexual assault - instead of the 15 year minimum sentence. The judge in that case felt that a long prison sentence would be 'detrimental to his life' or something similar.

bee I agree @GregSee1. I also get very disappointed when I hear adults and juveniles get let off with a suspended sentence or a few years imprisonment

Alianess I do believe the laws need to be reviewed. A person who steals a chicken in my country is jailed for many years than a person who steals millions from a bank and hasn't returned even some of the money.
