Today, Carlos Tevez, the controversial Manchester City player has been found guilty of a driving offence and he has been sentenced to 250 hours community service.
For the average full time working person that is about seven weeks work.
Tevez reportedly earns £170,000 per week.
So, wouldn't it have been better to give Tevez the choice of 250 hours of Community Service or a £1.2 million fine? That £1.2 million could go to employ six people on £20,000 per year for 10 years! Those six people could be dredging canals, removing graffiti and clearing overgrown railway sidings.
Wouldn't that be better for everyone?
