One person is murdered every week by a criminal on probation, the Government admitted last night.
In the past three years, 158 murders and 54 manslaughters were committed by convicts supposedly being monitored in the community.
They also carried out 155 rapes and 38 attempted murders
Yup, condoms for the rapists so they don't get any itches and a flask of tea for the murders to calm them down after their next attack, need to watch their blood pressure now.
The Lib Dems a few years ago had such logic (Sorry, cant find a link for it). Joy riders on rally driving courses and youngsters caught with firearms sent on range packages, all to teach respect and how dangerous it is. They dont get into power, but labour is and they are just as dumb.
And zero chance of making it right if the wrong person is hanged.
Don't get me wrong: my attituded towards crime and punishment would make Gene Hunt say, "Fcukin' Hell, that's a bit harsh!" But there have been too many fcuk ups in the past where innocent men and women were jailed or even executed for crimes they did not commit.
In cases where guilt has been proven beyond ANY doubt, for example scum like Tobin, Sutcliff, Huntley etc, by all means hang them. In fact I have no objection to these creatures being hung, drawn and quartered. Or blood-eagled for that matter.
For everyone else, life without parole in a prison that has only the bare necessities for survival. No luxuries of any kind. If new evidence proves a prisoners innocence he can be released and compensated.
If I make a mistake at work I am held accountable for my actions and would have to justify why I made them.
Why aren't we asking question of the parole board and prison governors that approved these releases?
