RdotC - Giving people 10 years for vandalism is a bit heavy handed.
Not sure where the right line is... but its definitely beyond just letting idiots do it and short of 10 years in prison.
You have to stamp it out and 10 years would be the max I guess?
I'm not sure how it is too much though. If the punishment is 10 years and people choose to do it, then they obviously didn't think that 10 years was too much.
Do you change all sentencing then?
You have absolute garbage humans getting less than that for child porn. Hell, the average sentence for rape is 9.8 years.
Bill them for the damage and maybe give them a weekend in jail and throw them on probation for a couple of years and make sure they are assigned to the most ball busting PO in the district.
