Soft on Crime

"Thousands of sex offenders including paedophiles and rapists have escaped with cautions rather than being jailed over the past five years.A nationwide survey of police forces conducted by the BBC found that 1,600 sex offences involving children and 230 cases of rape were dealt with by the use of cautions instead of formal charges, which could lead to a fine or a prison sentence."

Personally, I think the British are descending into a fuzzy cultural senility. This story confirms it. The nation that produced Shakespeare and Churchill no longer exists.
