      That’s a great question and one that is talked about a lot, especially when it comes to prison sentences. To be completely honest I’m not too sure where I stand with this. If a person is already ill I don’t think it right that they be punished for their actions. But at the same time if someone else has suffered because of these actions, shouldn’t they be punished? What is your opinion on it?
