  • They are the best

    A good idea, and a more democratic option, in this day and age, whether a judge or a citizen, once given a little leeway, people take advantage of the new power and abuse it. We have seen examples of that many a time in our history and we know it. ( as said above) i just agree

  • Yes! Support bro!

    Although it is a good idea, and a more democratic option, in this day and age, whether a judge or a citizen, once given a little leeway, people take advantage of the new power and abuse it. We have seen examples of that many a time in our history and we know it.

  • Tougher on abuse crimes

    Predators give victims a life sentence and more often than not re offend. Sentence should be minimum of 7 years after a reduction for early plea.
    We need to protect children and if that means locking predators up long enough to make sure they are rehabilitated.

    More victims will come forward if they feel they are getting some form of justice. Remember they are PREDATORS

  • Yes, driving is a privilege not a right.

    You don't have to be able to drive it is not a law what so ever. You are given an advantage as soon as you get behind a wheel. Its a matter of choice, chance and careless thoughts when you are intoxicated past a legal limit and behind a wheel. When you drive drunk you put so much at risk your life, many other people's life's and your risking basically your whole life. You should definitely have a mandatory sentence to set you straight and also to keep others safe including yourself. I believe if we would do that it would happen less.

  • Yes, it is most fair.

    Yes, there should be mandatory sentencing, because there is more justice when people who have committed the same crime are treated equally under the law. There are too many judges who are either not competent to do their jobs, or who inject their own personal opinions into their decisions. The result is a very flawed system that needs to be as black and white as possible.

  • Yes, the same crime desreves teh same sentence



    Mandatory sentencing keeps judges and juries from giving longer
    sentences to those who look strange and thuggish. It prevents the young and
    cute form getting away with murder, figuratively or literally. It prevents
    those with good lawyers from walking away because of a judge’s carefully
    manipulated sympathies. Obviously all robbers who steal the same stuff in the
    same way should get the same sentence. Mandatory sentencing distributes justice
    more equally to everyone convicted of a crime.


  • Otherwise, Light Sentences May Become Normal

    Especially for violent crimes, mandatory sentences should be implemented. Otherwise, judges may hand down lighter sentences for criminals who don't deserve them. Mandatory sentencing gives judges across various jurisdictions guidelines for how people should be punished for convictions. Obviously, a burglar won't get as much time as a rapist or murderer, which is why guidelines are there in the first place.

  • Its really stupid

    In court we have judges for a reason and that is so they can decide whether the person is to be put in jail or not. I think it isn't making a difference because the offender is going to jail and learning better, Newer ways of doing something. Eg stealing, Breaking in etc

  • Every case is unique

    Every crime and it's situation is NOT black and white and we need judges to go through and asses each detail thoroughly in order for a truly 'fair' sentence, And if the minimum sentence is too high, This will limit a judge's fair and accurate decisions. And if the public fails to see the details of this case and blindly think a higher sentence is just, That should not affect anything

  • No, There are so many reasons why not

    Even if you say that re-offend rates are going up, Which they are in many places, There are so many better ways to solve that problem. Better judicial training and stronger punishment for judges who sentence unfairly would help this problem much more than mandatory minimum sentences that don't allow for circumstance or untreated mental health issues.

  • Doesn't account for circumstance

    Circumstances change everything, And circumstances should always be accounted for. A minimum sentence doesn't allow the judge to make their own decisions that are about that case in particular, So this law would actually hurt the justice system rather than help it. Those particular circumstances of the case need to be considered and not restricted by a mandatory minimum.
