Benefit sanctions

60,000 people a month are having their benefits stopped. 

If you have mental health problems or perhaps just depressed about the job centre plus giving you 36 stupid things a week to do it is all to easy to have your benefits 'sanctioned' for not doing something such as missing and apointment or not sending your cv out to firms who don't want it.

Why is it that starving people has become an acceptable punishment ?  Why is doing something that aren't breaking the law worse than the punishment for breaking the law ?
