I beg to differ with Skimmington, it's not "discriminatory justice", it bears no resemblance to justice whatsoever. It's pure, unadulterated discrimination or, more accurately, misandry.

There is already a "female sentencing discount" and police are very reluctant to prosecute women anyway. I note nobody mentions the impact on families caused by a male breadwinner being gaoled. Nor is there any mention of the impact on victims (both male and female) of female crime when they see the criminal walk out of court with some paltry "slap on the wrist". If these proposals had been adopted earlier, Myra Hindly would probably have got a Conditional Discharge.

If these proposals are adopted, the country had better brace itself for a massive explosion in female crime.

Quote: "The report, Reforming Women's Justice, said: 'It is true that many women end up in prison for low-level crime as a result of repeat offending and a failure to respond to non-custodial alternatives."

So, when a female CRIMINAL fails to respond to non-custodial sentences, they propose using more of the same! How stupid can they be?
