    Yes. $80 billion dollars is a very large amount of money to have taken. In the US system i reakon that is worth at least 80 years in jail.

    Crimes against property of this scale aren't punished hard enough.

    Yes, for mine.

    No - Shouldn't be life IMO. Should be treated as the most serious form of theft, so maybe 10 years, plus seizure of everything he owns. Life sentences should be reserved for violent crimes - murders, attempted murders, etc, drug trafficking, and aggravated sex offences...

    Yes: 3
    No: 1
    Unsure: 1

    Poll 3
    Should criminals who have served time in Jail lose there right to vote?

    1) Yes, on all charges
    2) Yes, but only on the most serious of charges (Murder, rape etc)
    3) No, not on any charges
    4) Unsure


    This brings up the old idea of (to quote sideshow bob) "Isn't our justice system based on the idea a man can change?" Personally though I think yes, but only in the most serious charges.

    If they have been judged appropriate to release back into society, then they can vote, imo.
    Or something.

    It would be hypocritical not to let them vote once they're out of jail.

    No they shouldn't. Fail to understand the connection between committing a crime and your suitability to vote. A vote should be as universal as possible.

    I'd go the other way and say that the situation in Australia, where voting is compulsory, should be adopted everywhere.
