Some judges in the Netherlands are asking for the maximum possible sentence for murder without pre-meditation to be increased. Putting aside the discussion of how the prison-industrial complex is inhumane and ineffective (which it is), I wonder if any of them has thought of how much extra that is going to cost. Like, if that's what you want whatever, I can't seem to change your mind, but you should at least think about the implications of stuff like that before you go gung ho on that stuff
