It was a joke! On the serious side of this issue, albeit too little, too late…the Courts should have taken this behaviour more seriously when handing out fines & jail sentences to those who would endanger the lives & wellbeing of others?
It's as simple as this: Enforce the rules that are already in place.
Unfortunately, there are those who believe everyone deserves a second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth etc. chance.
