Should rioters be forced to clean up the areas they have damaged?

Rioters will be forced to “look their victims in the eye”, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg will say today. Those who are not sent to jail for their parts in last week’s violence and looting will be set to work in the affected streets. The initiative is designed to force the perpetrators to face up to the consequences of their actions and prevent first-time offenders getting sucked into a cycle of crime.
