Some things–for example, car-racing on public streets or “celebratory” shooting–are so unconscionably stupid and dangerous–and so hard to prevent–that when someone is actually arrested, the bookcase should be thrown at them. No second chances–because we all know this was only the first time being caught–just a high-profile maximum sentence. To make a well-publicized example of. No, it won’t stop all others, maybe just a few. That’s worth it.
