More tolerant ideas from Britain, the country where young children can be labeled as racist for expressing disgust at unfamiliar or undesired food:
Burglars should no longer be sentenced to jail, official advisers have said.The panel 'reasons' that short prison sentences for "the less serious offences of theft and dishonesty, burglary and motoring offences" are unlikely to protect the public for long, nor provide an opportunity for prisoners to rehabilitate themselves while in jail. Sentencing the thief to clear litter from the streets, perhaps complete with a curfew, is sure to elicit a collective sigh of relief.
