I often read that judges are sparing on jail terms and you see comments about that, such as:
"isn't long enough for the bastard"
So, have you done time? Does it change people? Does it change for the better?
and anything else you may like to contribute.
No, I'm an upstanding citizen. But not for long if the Swedish law criminalises me. As for the sentencing in this country, I think the judiciary has it spot on. (except understandably if the crime was against you or a loved one)

Eight years for a non premeditated murder, think about locked up for eight years, a big chunk of your life.
Now if you plan to to kill your partner etc, that's different. I hope you rot in jail.

It would be severe. But the victim has lost more than eight years?
