    So myself and many others are waiting for the "get tough on crime". I guess it's like most other promises made by our misleading politicians. Some folks call them lies. Conditional discharges are a disgrace to our society. Considering most are repeat offenders. I somedays wonder why I chose to work, long hard hours, when I could have been a repeat offender getting handouts from the working class. SHAME on our judges for being lack.
