    42 weeks!??? That means he’ll be out in 21, minus any time already served. Will he be given a packed lunch and spending money when he gets out to do it all again and ruin someone else’s life?

    Meet more than five friends, or utter a forbidden word, and you get the full force of the law down on you like a ton of bricks.

    Commit a series of crimes culminating in a serious injury, and get a gentle slap on the wrist if you’re really unlucky.

    The world’s gone mad, or could this habitual criminal’s ancestry have something to do with the excessively lenient sentence?
