The killer of 68 yr Richard Mannington Bowes in the London riots in 2011 got an 8 yr sentence for manslaugher yet the arsonists who burnt down a furniture store got 11 years. So much for this country valuing human life.
I think that was because the former was a juvenile where as the latter was an adult, plus there could well have been people in the store, or indeed in any place that an arsonist sets fire to; both sentences were too lenient IMO.
