Abstract

In the wake of the riots that swept through the UK last week, the police are now in the process of rounding up those suspected of looting and causing criminal damage, and many are facing prison terms. Tim Leunig argues that harsh judicial sanctions may not be appropriate for those who have been found guilty of looting, and have no previous convictions.
