Sign the petition for more appropriate sentences

I appreciate that this isn’t Windows Mobile related, however I had to stop and give this email from long-time reader Russell Beuken the publicity it deserves. He states…

“On May 13th 2006, my brother and his best mate were killed by a drink driver. Earlier this year the driver in question received two 4-year sentences to run concurrently. The maximum possible sentence is 14 years, yet judges don’t hand out long jail terms for one reason or another.

My youngest brother started a petition on the PM’s website. We are trying to drum up more support, and as a member of this site I would like to call on the thousands of other members to visit this link and if they agree.”

If you feel that sentences in the UK do not currently fit the crime and are too lenient, click the link below to sign the petition.
