Take Anderson Fernandes

Take Anderson Fernandes. He faces possible jail time for stealing two scoops of ice cream during a Manchester riot. There are other cases involving petty theft like stealing a bottle of water, a cake and chewing gum.
Judges are dealing with a tremendous range of crimes and are working overtime to mete out punishment, from everything from murder to arson to theft.
The riots have cost the country dearly. Five people were killed. Others lost their homes and businesses at an estimated cost of hundreds of millions dollars.
Politicians and the public have demanded tough sentences.
And that may explain what seem to be particularly harsh sentences for Jordan Blackshaw and Perry Sutcliffe-Keenen. They each got four years in prison for using Facebook to incite a riot, or rather failing to incite a riot.
Both invited their Facebook friends to join in the looting with a "smash down" at an appointed place and time. No one showed up, however, except for police who promptly arrested them.
But that sentence has prompted a backlash from critics.
