3 strikes and you're out
Reasons To Disagree
Far too simplistic a test. The primary test should always be whether a person is safe to be let back into the community.

Only if this includes white collar crime, crimes by corporations, and crimes made by politicians.
2 December 2012
Depends on the crime. Murders and rapes should be life in prison without exception!
6 September 2013
Disagreeing with this, as the 3 strike policy could range from anything, including the possession of weed for personal use.
15 August 2016
No, 1 strike and you're out!
4 June 2017

for hard crimes, not for petty crime or driving or drugs or white collar
30 October 2008
In some cases yes, for serious violent offendng including manufacturing and distrbuting class A drugs you should be out first time!

How chances do you really give a person e.g. you read stories of drink drivers on their 8 or 9th offence... we do have to draw the line at some stage.

Basically a good idea but it has to be applied sensibly - each case on it own merits.
15 March 2009

Within reason. Judges need discretion within strict limits.
