is Prison just way too easy nowadays? too cushy? too soft?
Crack dealer walks free after judge says prison would be "easier"
A MAN caught again selling crack cocaine to an undercover police officer has walked free from court after a judge told him it may be harder than going to jail.
Recorder Nicholas Atkinson QC told dealer Justin Collier, who has 124 previous convictions: “In some ways it may be easier if you just go straight to prison today.”

Instead he put the 42-year-old on a suspended sentence and told him to do another drug rehabilitation requirement having received a similar order 18 months ago. Collier, who goes by the street name of Jutty, was caught in a covert operation targeting town centre dealers.
