https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6879531/Now-MPs-want-one-year-prison-sentences-axed-feral-young-kids-overrun-drug-ridden-jails.html Quoting:

Prison sentences of less than a year must be abolished to tackle the ‘enduring crisis’ in our jails, MPs warn today. They say many prisons are now overrun with ‘feral young kids’ who have ‘no respect for authority’ and use ‘no language other than violence’. Their report found a third of prisoners think it is ‘easy’ to get hold of drugs, with one in eight men developing a substance addiction while inside.

The Commons justice committee concluded by urging the Government to take a ‘fresh and decisive response’ by considering abolishing sentences of less than a year. Its recommendations come weeks after Justice Secretary David Gauke called for sentences of less than six months to be scrapped, saying they are ‘simply not working’. He suggested that community sentences, alongside treatment for mental health conditions and drug addictions, would be more effective for breaking the cycle of crime . . .

The report also said the prison population has changed, with ‘old school prisoners’ and ‘big gangsters’ replaced by ‘feral young kids’ . . . ‘What you have now is a society issue. You are getting feral young kids who have no respect for authority, have no respect for themselves and have bullied their way through life. They have no language other than violence and they do not like the word no.’

The prison population has almost doubled in 25 years, from 44,246 to 82,384 in December 2018. But moves to reduce the number by abolishing shorter sentences will prove hugely divisive.

Tory MP Philip Davies has previously described such proposals as ‘ludicrous’. . . He obtained figures last month showing criminals sentenced to six months or fewer had racked up an average of 55 offences each.

I think it's pretty obvious by the age of 16 who is likely to turn out to be a criminal. I think a school behaviour record should be kept from 11 to 16 and the worst 1% of boys should go into the army for six years. There's no point pretending they can suddenly change into conscientious citizens.

I agree with this as well.
