IS your lady, "Rita", missing the point of prison (October 18)?

Of course society feels it needs to punish people who did wrong. The country would be in absolute chaos if people could do what they want, take what is not theirs and get away with it. Community service is easy.

Rita may well say she'll never do it again - that does not mean she should not be punished.

If she had £28,000 of credit card debts, why steal £44,000. That smacks of greed, not desperation.
