    Question zero tolerance

    We hear endless amounts about zero tolerance for drugs and drink driving, how about zero tolerance for violent men?

    Please tell me what does zero tolerance mean?????

    There will be no tolerant treatment of offenders. They will be given the statutory penal sentence laid down in law with no reductions or exemptions.

    Re: zero tolerance

    And regardless of how small offence. In some countries, the police pursue drug dealers but will often do little about the consumers as this is seen as time-consuming and relatively pointless- if they do get to court for possession they'll get a small fine and society will have spent thousands and many hours to achieve that. In a zero tolerance regime, they'll arrest and charge small offenders, believing that this will repay in a broader cleaning up of crime in general and by limiting the possibilities criminals have making it harder for serious crime to take place.
