Prison terms are pathetic

By Star Comment | Readers' letters | Published:

After reading the report about the graffiti artist costing rail bosses more than £30,000 for his stupid actions, I wonder what his parents would have said had he been hit by a train and killed?

No doubt they would blame Network Rail.

Thankfully he was caught and sent to prison – but I had to read the article twice.

I thought the judge had made a mistake in the sentence – eight weeks? It should have been eight months.

It’s no wonder we can’t rid the streets of crime with the pathetic sentences passed out today.
