It makes me wonder what England is coming to regarding knife attacks, general thuggery and total lack of respect but not just with youngsters.

I believe it's time to go backwards regarding sentencing and the type of prisons we have.

For any type of violence there should be hard labour prisons with no luxuries such as televisions or radios. They should be based on the old military detention centres. After serving their time I don't think that these people would go back for more.

But with so-called civil rights this will not happen. It seems the rights are more for the criminals than then injured parties.
