As there seems to no deterrent to minor criminal acts, as prison usually creates a martyr of anybody who receives a sentence. Bring back the CANE and use it for these types of crimes.
This seems old-fashioned but I never knew of anybody re-offending after receiving strokes from the cane.
Possibly introduce it’s use on a regular basis in prison (monthly), this would stop people from returning to prison. Do away with ASBOS and give the miscreants strokes with the cane- they will not be in such a hurry to re-offend.
Why does this idea matter?
Act as a deterrent to criminals and reduce the number being sent to prison
