Now a criminal in the UK can be punished with 'victim empathy courses'

Burgarize one home in the UK, get a slap on the wrist.

Burglarize 50 homes, you maybe get a jail sentence.

However, if you burglarize more than 200 homes, you will get a 'victim empathy course':

A serial thief who admitted committing more than 200 burglaries in just two years has avoided jail and been ordered to attend a ‘victim empathy course’, it was revealed today.

Right. Punishment is useless, after all, this was one of these Lithuanian talents Britain sorely needs:

The Lithuanian criminal broke into and burgled 202 homes in the Hertfordshire area between 2013 and 2014 to fund his addiction to alcohol and gambling, St Albans Crown Court was told.

Of course, being dependent on alcohol will make you unable to go to jail. And of course, he's going to get more of that 'social work' hogwash with which the western penal system is now awash of:

But Judge Andrew Bright QC said that he would spare Drungelas jail and send him on a locally-run rehabilitation course called Choices and Consequences, or the ‘C2 Programme’.

In a Asian country with an extremely low burglary rate, they also have that "C2 Programme". It works on an A-Frame to which the offender is tied to, and then they apply a half-inch diameter rattan cane to his buttocks for it to take effect and leave marks. This is also, in the same pass, a well-known 'victim empathy course' since the caned offender will not sit for a month and thus have an empathic feeling for the victim.

The British legal systems needs to take a closer look at all these highly successful programmes in the republic of Singapore.
