Letter: Punishment to deter crime
2:33pm Wednesday 15th August 2012 in Readers' letters
Corporal punishment would be a great start in early deterrence of aggressive crimes. Also, it does not cost a lot of money and I’m sure there would be enough volunteers to apply the birch.
In the Isle of Man many years ago I have actually seen young thugs stop and think before an aggressive crime. The birch was in force and even the Glasgow young thugs were prevented by this threat alone.
