BBC News: Text driver faces jail over death

BBC News: Text driver faces jail over death

This reminds me of the post I wrote three weeks ago, What is the Purpose of Prison?

Some liberals talk as if women should only be sent to prison if they are serial killers.

Cases like this one illustrate the necessity of sending people, both male and female to prison, regardless of their record or lack of danger to society. Not to reform them, but simply to send the message to the public that such thoughtless and dangerous behaviour is unacceptable.

Let anyone who writes text messages while driving take note.
