A smoke signaller asks: “Does it not seem a tad strange that six men in just one criminal court sitting can be up for beating the bejesus out of their women/wives and be given chance after chance to avoid jail, only to reoffend days later, while some young people who smoked a bit of weed from the back yard, hurt no one, are sitting in jail to ‘deter’ others. Come on JPs, wake up and smell the coffee. Fill the prison up for the holidays. You may not deter any other women-beaters but ones locked up sure won’t be ruining Christmas for the rest of society. Lock ‘em up like the cowardly curs that they are.”
