Maybe that the law is a fickle and disputed thing in many cases? :dunno:

I have physically been to his courthouse in Langtry, Texas, just west of the Pecos.

The original building still stands. Barely.

Dead judges don't punish recidivism.

The government has abandoned plans for five community prisons for women in England and Wales.

Instead, the Ministry of Justice will trial five residential centres to help offenders with issues such as finding work and drug rehabilitation.

Justice Secretary David Gauke said short custodial sentences had failed to halt the "cycle of offending".

Peter Dawson, director of the Prison Reform Trust, said "thousands" of women would benefit from the change.

The Dutch are closing even more prisons as crime continues to drop

The Netherlands has long been known for having one of the lowest crime rates in the world. It’s so low that, while the U.S. struggles with prison overcrowding, the Dutch have shut down dozens of prisons in recent years because there were no criminals to fill the cells.

Partial 'ahem!'

However, a leaked Dutch police report from 2017 reveals that the low rates might not be accurate.

The report showed:

Some 3.5 million crimes go unregistered each year
Citizens’ willingness to report crimes dropped 23% in the last 10 years
Between 57 and 70% of reported crimes go uninvestigated for lack of clues
The Netherlands has relatively few police officers: 3.17 per 1,000 citizens compared to 3.5 in England and Wales and 4.4 in Belgium
Senior Dutch officials wrote that scarce police resources and citizens’ lack of faith in policing could put them at ‘an insurmountable disadvantage’ by criminals who are acting with impunity...Senior Dutch officials wrote that scarce police resources and citizens’ lack of faith in policing could put them at ‘an insurmountable disadvantage’ by criminals who are acting with impunity.


My emphasis - I can certainly relate to that.

I would take those figures not with any conviction. The number of unregistered crime is an impossible figure as is the willingness to report. Bike thefts are never reported and there are over 20 million of them.

No-one charged in 9 out of 10 crimes - Home Office

No wonder so many, like myself, have little faith in popo.

Also:

To reduce the likeliness of inmates returning to a life of crime, Brazil chose to reduce jail time for those who educate themselves by reading while in prison. For each book a prisoner reads, they must submit a report, and if deemed appropriate, it will reduce 4 days off of their sentence. Since the beginning of the program, Brazil has seen a 30% reduction in criminal relapses.
