If I was the president, I'd sack most prisons. If you can't live by societies basic rules ---> adios. Simple as that. That's one route to stop wasting money on people who cannot play by the rules. But hey, that's just me, and thank goodness I'm not president Agreed @Luis Embalo , definitely the death penalty. No one drives at the speed limit, because the fines are so low, and if you don't pay (like me) nothing ever happens anyway. And we all know this. The average jail time for a rapist in this country is 2 years, that is assuming the person even gets convicted!!! The time does not frighten people enough, so they do the crime. Starting salary for a policeman in Finland is around R25 000 a month. Ask a policeman here what he gets, shame... Underpaid, I don't blame the guys, but the system doesn't support the cops anyway. But crime, that's another thread totally..
