Harper Government Considers Mandatory Minimum Sentences for Financial Crimes

Gotta Say, I am no fan of mandatory minimum sentences.   It has been a failure in many U.S. States. It reduces the discretionary power of judges, allowing them to go on auto-pilot, and sometimes restricts them from issuing much harsher sentences.

  1. This from Randy McCall:

    "Mandatory minimums won't dissuade anyone. Criminals never believe they're going to get caught in the first place. This goes 10x as much for white collar criminals, who believe they're smarter and/or more powerful than everyone else… or they wouldn't be trying to pull the con in the first place."
