    Bring back the stocks like they used to have in St Georges. Let the public see their faces in shame, and make them pay back for everything they stole, plus interest for suffering and inconvenience. Fine them for their crime, and lock them in prison for minimum 5 years after putting them in the stocks.

    Also, stop serving KFC and nice food at prison, and take away their televisions. bet that would make criminals fear prison more.
