Just needed some money for Mother's Day I guess .... if he breached his probation ...are they now going to assess more probation ..lol ..

He should now go directly to jail and serve a sentence since HE proved that probation didn't work ... in my opinion anyway..!!
MYPOINT 5/12/2014 9:38:57 AM Report

is as follows ...

Personally I believe that if a person is already on probation and they are caught breaking the law again, they should automatically sit in a jail cell until their court date comes up and then the courts can decide what to do with the individual. It is fairly obvious that probation is not working for this person so why give them more probation? That would be idiotic in my humble opinion.

As always, others may have a different view :)

Guess Who and T Finn..

Problem is, the way our court systems work, he could be in jail longer than the sentence the judge gives him and then he would turn round and sue the taxpayer for time spent behind bars unjustly.. One way to overcome this would be to sentence them to jail suspended for the length of the probation and should they break the probation they just go to jail for the length of the original sentence.. Would that not be so simple, Ah but this is where civil liberties and lawyers come in and completely muddy the waters, so it becomes society's fault that he/she became what they are today...Criminals...

Stupid enough to break into my place and they will require an ambulance and many, many weeks at our luxurious Sault area hospital!

Sorry !!! But it's not sociaties fault in anyway, everyone uses the blame game. There's a time too grow up and take responsibility for their own actions. But the courts should be hard on them not probation after probation. Look at the case with Jacobs women stealing all the money from Algoma University she got off easy, lets watch what the guy who stole money from the Essar Centre gets. Will it be fair probably not.

It is becoming increasingly clear that perhaps BETTER JUDGES are needed. To give repeat offenders a continual revolving door and never closing it is a waste of the courts' time.
Those charged with the RESPONSIBILITY of enforcing and obeying our laws have to be responsible and accountable. If the person breaks the law repeatedly - close the revolving door. Put them in JAIL.
Frio 5/13/2014 9:57:18 AM Report

Putting them in jail only prevents them from committing crimes for the time they are locked up. As soon as they are released they go right back to the same old thing..There is not enough room in jail to keep them all, where in most cases they live in much better surroundings and services than they can provide for themselves on the streets, all with no responsibility or cost.
