Consequence and Ramification
Innocent people have died in the riots in England. Property damage is in the hundreds of millions. Fear stalks the streets in many urban areas. Those who committed offenses must be dealt with- not with the all too common slap on the wrist- but with as Draconian punishment as law allows. They must be made an example of and it is a shame that more summary and public punishment has been abolished. There was a time when the criminal feared the righteous wrath of the public and the lawful authority. Now the authorities and the public are chased down the streets by the thugs, and for there to remain an England, that must end.
