"The unusual measures are part of a multi-million pound nationwide scheme designed to give young offenders ‘self-esteem and confidence’."

The UK is completely broken. The hug-a-thug thing has gone WAY too far.


It's like in my old secondary school, the disruptive/badly behaved/d*ck pupils were rewarded and given treats, whilst those who behaved were given nothing.

I'd say 6 months of hard labour should do it, the West in general coddles criminals too much, there's no need for long sentences for most crimes, quarter the time and make them WORK HARD is a much better way to rehabilitate most, those the commit serious crimes and repeat offenders can do long sentences, they've already proven they refuse to act like a normal human being



Yes, labour, in the British style :)

As we have seen, punishment doesn't really work. We need to focus more on rehabilitation. A lot of these people have issues and they need help working through them.

Yeah but this? I'm for rehabilitation but this isn't it. This is basically acupuncture. Intimidating and roughing up his neighbors deserves more than just eletroacupuncture..

http://www.motiv8south.org.uk/ - This is how they were rewarded, fishing, sleepovers and fast food etc was meant to reduce their behavioral issues. They had lessons and even whole days out of school. This didn't change anything, in fact they were worse. It wasn't the teachers choice, it was a government/council scheme to allow schools to have this. Some of the people who did this have now become criminals, see - http://www.portsmout...-coma-1-4646956 England has to change, people who misbehave like this need a good kick up the arse, then they should be rewarded for doing well.

It's the EU and their "human rights" ###### that causes the issues. Send the misbehaving little gits to a boot camp for a year's hard labour and that used to straighten most of them out. Now... oh no we can't make people do hard labour, it violates their human rights!

What would you suggest?

 

Put them into cryostasis, you don't kill them and yet they can't harm others :D

I don't know exactly what it's called in english, but I thought about the process of preserving them in sub-zero temperature areas.

 

Maybe you have seen Lockout, well there the prisoners are freezed in space, but I guess the process of cryopreservation could also be applied on earth.

Problem is, all of that is fake and only in the movies, a chemical induced coma is real.

Electric needles OK but they should turn the voltage up a bit till theyre smelling nice and crispy.

Back on a serious note the use of non-standard medical treatments i.e. acupuncture in lab tests has not been proved beyond reasonable doubt to make any improvement in the patients ailments beyond the placebo effect.

In reality cryogenic storage causes ice crystals for form in the cells and damages them so it's probably going to be a fatal punishment if their brain survives the initial freezing :p
