Introduce Caning for Minor Offences and Anti-Social Behaviour

Comment 2nd July 2010

Use caning for adults as a deterrent for minor offences and anti-social behaviour. 

Why does this matter?

This is used in Singapore to excellent effect. The crime rate is extremely low in comparison to the UK, and people have the freedom to walk about unmolested and unafraid at all hours of the day.

Anti-social behaviour is a blight on British society, and there is no real deterrent at present apart from being given an ASBO. These are seen by the majority of perpetrators more as "badges of honour" than as a preventative measure. 

Why should we have to live our lives in fear at the hands of thugs and hooligans, whilst they feel like they can inflict terror as they want with no real consequence?
