Archibald in the police beat again. If it isn't Thomas, it's Paul. Lock 'em up, throw away the key.

"Lock 'em up, throw away the key." Really? For petty theft?

It costs $113,000 per year (2012 figure) to lodge a federal inmate. How big of a tax increase will you accept to lock up all the repeat offenders?
rebel469 3/20/2014 10:18:19 AM Report

Time to turn jail into prison. How much are we spending on courts just to keep these punks on the streets. I would rather spend more money to lock them up than to give them a chance to create a bigger crime. Maybe break into someone's house? Just a thought.

Sam C.

Does your figure also account for the court time, legal aid, police time as well, if not add a few thousand to that figure everytime they are caught. Just what do you suggest happen to these people?, allow them to go on their merry way?. Perhaps we should start taking a more draconing way, but no, that would cause uproar in the civil liberties crowd. How about stocks on the court house front yard, not really harmful, how about corporal punishment for minor offences, oh but that's barbaric, it may hurt! I know, how about we execute all criminals, white collar as well, to be fair. This would solve the problem of cost and act as a deterent to all future would be social miscreants, ah nah, the lawyers would never go for it. they would lose too much money...

people in this town want small crime to be life sentences. they're stupid for thinking it's even remotely possible. guess what, theft isn't a life sentence, and it might be a while before the dummies in this town realize that
Bad Dawg 3/20/2014 11:11:21 AM Report

Why waste money on repeat theft offenders.... doesn't cost anything to cut off fingers or at least a smack with a meat tenderizer!!

Yes I got spanked when I was kid... deserved every one of them. Taught me respect, instilled good morals and scruples, and most of all consequences for my actions.

We need tougher sentences to deter this type of behavior!!
AlwaysAWinner 3/20/2014 11:28:05 AM Report

another moron thinking hitting kids is the solution

this place is stuck in the stone age
Bad Dawg 3/20/2014 11:55:02 AM Report

21 yrs old is far from a kid that was caught stealing booze..... and yeah countries that support physical/corporal punishment have far less petty crimes. North American corrections are far too lenient.

Maybe if Robert Pickton gets out of prison he can go live with AlwaysaLoser.

Last nite I read the news paper and there was this article breaking down the cost of keeping someone in jail, it was outraged What! an burden on the tax payers of this country. I feel that Canada should bring the death penalty back. There is really no answers to these petty criminals. One time I traveled to a USA city where they had people like this performing jobs for the city until they finished their sentence. Other wise there is no real ansers and that pisses me off. They are lost causes!!!

you people are hopeless
Hunter101 3/20/2014 1:08:57 PM Report

This is why I support the victims catching thieves on the spot and beating them senseless.
ranny 3/20/2014 1:55:28 PM Report

@AlwaysAWinner Why don't you offer room and board to these helpless criminal. Give them a key to your house and vehicle if they need to go somewhere? I'm sure you trust and back these guys up. They seem honest in your eyes.
Karl 3/20/2014 2:37:32 PM Report

The Gov should try a pilot project. Have alcohol and drug clinics that just give the addicts what they need. Instead of stealing to support there problems. Might not be the answer but worth a try! Better yet just legalize all the substances, beer store, weed store, cocaine store...etc Let the Gov be the dealer and make all the money.
asp 3/20/2014 3:35:42 PM Report

Way too GO!! RANNY !!! ALWAYSAWINNER is really a looser LOL. That person must be one of those criminals.
redy 3/20/2014 7:57:28 PM Report

if it cost 113,000 per year to keep em and a bullet cost 13 cents I think I found a solution to the problem lol
fishing 3/20/2014 8:57:17 PM Report

@AlwayaAWinner
maybe if these kids had got a smack on the backside when they were young they wouldnt be stealing now.i am 50 years old and still remember the licken i got at 12 for stealing my dad was in retail and said no son of mine is going to steal it costs me thousands of dolars a year and he tanned my behind like he never had before,i never stole again.
Are system is way to lenient on kids they need discipline and need to be accountable for there actions.
