What are peoples opinions on criminals committing crimes and getting away with a tag. Do you think this is enough ? I would be interested in hearing opinions on this.

Not sure it really works, I work opposite a sheltered housing block in Brighton and all the teenagers just compare them and wear them as status symbols

Depends what the crime was and how serious etc. But I haven't seen the roads swept at all around Lewes, so maybe we could get a few of these offenders to get on the brush and clean up our roads ? Obviously that would depend on the seriousness of the crime,I wouldn't want a murderer or rapist or similar walking our streets thank you very much.

I'm not sure how effective they are at making offenders stick to curfews etc, but it's a lot cheaper than keeping them in prison, so broadly I suppose I'm in favour.

I think its fine in appropriate situations, and if its done competently - not by a private security employee who attaches the tag to a false leg which gets taken off and allows the detainee to wander freely.

A strange request, Lewes, but I'm sure we can arrange that for you.

How can curtailing some of your movement and ensuring you get an early night ever equate to incarceration - if the crime warrants removal from society (violence and theft) then do just that - for lesser misdemeanours (like that poor cow who fed the birds with a crust from her car window) an appropriate level of policed community service - or whatever the PC term for it is these days

Legal advisor I'm doing a topic at college on crime and different forms of punishment and that's why I posted on here. You have some serious hang ups whoever you are.
