What? Has everyone suddenly gone stoopid?
EVEN if the man is tossed into prison for 15 years, for a womans' wallet and $4 bucks of cheese, that is a cost to US taxpayers of 15 x $40,000 per year! Total cost of "punishing" him is $600,000+ USD. My gawd, just how much money was in the womans' wallet??? With inflation, I bet the final cost of his imprisonment goes into the millions USD ... I, as a taxpayer can't afford it--have the rich foot the bill!
How about a year of counseling? Sounds to me the man has some mental problems or was impoverished and hungry.
I mean, to be clear, is this the best our public servants (judges/lawyers/etc.) can come up with? If so, I am NOT going to be able to afford their bad judgement! Well, wait; I already could not afford their previous bad judgement(s!)
