What do you have to do to go to prison these days?

Burnley thug left two injured after chair attack
A THUG who attacked two innocent men in a takeaway and left one with a broken arm, kept his freedom.
A violent attack leaving one guy with a broken arm and he keeps his freedom. So just what do you have to do to get sent down these days?
Burnley Crown Court heard how Christopher Hoyle, 27, had been drinking when he set about the two victims with a metal chair in the early hours.
A violent, drunken attack and he keeps his freedom. Maybe it was his first offence?
Hoyle, a self-employed joiner, of Boundary Street, Burnley, who has three previous convictions, admitted two counts of assault causing actual bodily harm. He received eight months in jail, suspended for 18 months, with 100 hours unpaid work and must pay £600 compensation.
A violent, drunken attack that left one man with a broken arm and he's been convicted three times in the past. Just what do you have to do to get sent down these days? Maybe he was provoked?
Michael Wallbank, prosecuting, said the victims were in the Dixie Chicken, Burnley. The defendant, for no apparent reason picked up a metal chair and struck one of them. The victim’s friend stood up to help but he was hit on the forehead with the chair. The first victim suffered a broken arm, his friend received a cut hand and bruises.
Oh. Well maybe he admitted guilt at the earliest opportunity and cooperated fully with the police?
He was arrested and questioned after the ‘mindless violence’ but made no comment.
A violent, drunken attack that left one man with a broken arm. Previous form. Unprovoked and no cooperation with the police. So just what do you have to do to get sent down these days?

Ahhh. Annoy someone on Twitter.

The jails must be reserved for thought criminlas these days.
