Britain Moves toward Decriminalizing Burglary


Moonbattery-addled Britain is a burglar’s paradise. Not only is it illegal to defend your home, it is becoming all but legal for criminals to invade it and help themselves to your property:

Burglars should no longer be sentenced to jail, official advisers have said.

Unpaid work or a curfew would normally be a better way of punishing break-ins and thefts, said a panel that issues guidelines to judges.

The report — part of a consultation document on criminal sentencing — is likely to heighten concerns that Britain’s courts are not punishing offenders harshly enough to deter others.

The same deranged report recommends that victims should have a say on how criminals are punished — but only if they call for leniency.

There are fears such a system could lead to some offenders intimidating victims into asking for a more lenient term for them. The proposals from the Sentencing Advisory Panel also suggest that criminals sent to prison for less than a year should be let off with a community punishment instead.

British authorities have been imposing anarchy by force. No doubt this will turn out to be yet another example of government manufacturing a problem so that it can extinguish more freedoms in the process of “solving” it.
