Everyone knows that in Baltimore these animals are just going to be put back out on the street by the courts/prison system...I bet most of them will not spend more than a week behind bars before being released...you got to love the suspended sentences that these folks are going to be given due to a lack of prison space... Maybe swift corporal punishment would be more effective, at least it's not contingent upon having enough cells in the jails!!! Anything short of rape or murder can be handled in an afternoon by caning or embarrassment, leaving jail space for the worst criminals… I don’t want to hear that it’s cruel or unusual because the current system let’s someone just rot in prison which is much worse on someone’s family (losing their potential income and household participation leading the family into despondency).
