What an amazing turnaround in the British justice system.
Just take a read.. For example..

''records detail Dorcas Mary Snell, 45, who was jailed for five years and sentenced to hard labour in 1883 for stealing a piece of bacon.''

And..

''While 19-year-old Elizabeth Murphy was sentenced to five years of hard labour in 1884 and seven years of police supervision for stealing an umbrella.''

Full story below. Quite an interesting Article.

Lol chavs have it easy these days. Bit of GBH, aggravated assault, and armed robbery - and they still wouldn't see anywhere near 5 years.

Ya far too lenient judicial system nowadays, but the above seems slightly harsh. Going from 1 extreme to another.

The person who reported the theft of 1 slice of bacon must have been a evil person to watch someone get jailed for 5 years for that.

I imagine prison was actually a place to fear back in those days too. No snooker tables, sky tv, internet, xbox 360's, cooked meals (that if prisoners complain about get improved because of human rights crap), getting good tips on how to be a better criminal by fellow in-mates, and smuggling in mobile phones, drugs, and prostitutes.

Nope, just a hard uncomfortable bed, something to go to the toilet in, and bread and water (with jam if you're good).

smuggling in mobile phones, drugs, and prostitutes.

I understand how one would go about smuggling drugs and a phone aswell, but how do you smuggle in a prostitute ? :L

But aye on a serious note agreed
