    Default If You Were Crown Or High Court Judge.

    In you own mind would you always be 100% impartial or have a leaning towards harder than usual sentencing for certain crimes?
    In other words would you really dish it out to some crooks, even unfairly?

    I don't know about certain crimes, I'd go harder on someone just cos I didn't like the look of them or their tone or manner.

    I'd be as hard on every single one of them. Everyone would get the maximum sentence possible.

    I think it is always a judge's responsibility to adjust sentences according to certain criteria, as Ck and timmy have mentioned. Giving everyone the maximum sentence might not always be the appropriate action for everyone.

    Bah, if they can't do the time they shouldn't do the crime.
