As the recent widely publicised knifing case has proven, large sentences given because of the public interest.
It's the same with the stop and search anti terror laws. Because it's considered racist to stop asiand/arabs with turbans and beards they stop everyone else to make up the numbers.
Of course they would never abuse these powers - that's why they are stopping about 10,000 people a MONTH!!!
There has not been a single terrorist arrest despite over 120,000 searches.............
