It is snowing and I am bored, so I read the online Torygraph. one story particularly raised my hackles: Murderous ex-boyfriend The subject of the ASBO is banned from a large part of the county so as to prevent him from tracking down and killing his ex-girlfriend. The criminal, Shazad Habib, was released last week 1/2 way through a 6 year sentence for carving up the woman's face. He tracked her down and threatened to kill her, her child and her current boyfriend. Now forgive me for thinking that not only has this little turd broken the terms of his licence, but has also committed the added crime of making threats to kill. Some questions for the lefty cnuts at the CPS and Parole Service to answer (Sven, you can reply on their behalf as you always trot out the party line): Why is the little shite not back in jail for the full remainder of his term? Why was he considered for parole when he was making threats of this nature? Why is he not being tried for making threats to kill? Only the other day a 31year old scumbag was sent down for a minimum of 35 years for burning his 16year old ex-girlfriend, her two sisters and the mothers boyfriend to death in an arson attack (the second incident in which he had killed someone: previously he had killed another ex-girlfriend in a hammer attack). He should still have been in prison, but was released 18 months earlier, less than 1/2way through the sentence he got for killing the first woman. Why are these people released? Why does "6 years inside" actually mean 1year in a normal prison, another 18 months in an open prison and then release into the community in under 1/2 the original term? With the murdering arsonist the parole service are claiming that they made no mistakes (despite the fact that he was breaking the terms of his license). Does the job interview for these posts go along these lines: "So Mr Dread, you want to become a Parole Board member?" "Yes please" "What do you think of prisons and prisoners?" "Prison is a relic of the fascist imperial past and should be scrapped. Prisoners are victims of the brutal oppression and deserve compensation and freebies for the rest of their lives for even being threatened with prison" "What should replace prison?" "The only way of treating 'offenders'(if there is such a thing, their activities being declared criminal only by the ruling elite and their response is only a natural reaction to the evil pressures of capitalism), is to send them on outreach courses in Goa, South Africa or Bermuda. People who have severe adverse reactions to the pressures of society should be given houses in the Maldives and any single European city of their choice. Free flights and safaris should be paid for out of the UKs defence budget." "Do you have any questions for us?" "Where do I make my donation to the Lairbour party and renew my membership?"
