California man gets eight years for stealing cheese | World news | guardian.co.uk
This article from the Guardian illustrates why we should be wary of the inflexibility imposed by three strikes legislation. I t also shows that Texas is no better than anywhere (and possibly worse) in dealing with the mentally ill as criminals. I am inclined to think that the prices imposed by the poverty stricken dairy farmers for cheese in New Zealand might justify jail for cheese stealing too.
