This is "junk" (junk is my word for not getting to the heart of the problem IMO)

We should make committing a crime immediately punishable. Any crime.

We don't need to make the punishment more severe, in most cases, just more certain and immediate. These are the attributes that deter crime. Just look at child rearing. Don't wait for "your daddy to get home". Do it now

If we don't count our blessings
We are just wasting our time
