Dealing With Repeat Offenders

Repeat offenders are a pain. They clog the courts. They take up police time. They are released knowing perfectly well they will soon reoffend. Here is a way to handle them. On a second offence, the time for a crime is multiplied by 1.25, on the third offence by 1.25 * 1.25 = 1.5625 etc. It is not as Draconian as three strikes and you are out, but treats repeat offenders progressively more harshly.
