More Evidence Of Failing British Justice!

If anyone has doubts that the justice system in Britain is in total meltdown, figures released today should dispel them completely.

Petty Crime? It Isn’t If It’s Your Car!

It doesn’t happen in Germany, Denmark, France, Spain, or any other country you care to mention, so why do we the British, let habitual criminals off with a ‘slap on the wrist’ when in any other country they would be ‘banged up’ for a very long time.

This government, just like all the others that would be ‘tough on crime’ have turned our justice system into an international joke. All we hear from idiots like Ken Clark is; “It costs too much to put towrags in prison”. Well! Tough Ken!

Living On A Different Planet To The Rest Of Us

He and his cronies are always blubbering on about ‘reducing the re-offending rate’, but I have news for you Ken; IT AIN’T WORKING! A report out today lays it all on the line so that even a dimwit politician can understand.

Give Him A Slap On The Wrist?

Nearly two thirds of habitual criminals are avoiding a jail sentence despite having more than 15 previous convictions. Instead they are let off with a warning, given community service or a fine! These are all hardened thieves, violent muggers and drug dealers, and after a quick court appearance its business as usual.

The report cites a total of 96,710 criminals sentenced last year of which 8,200 were given a suspended sentence and were immediately back on the street, approximately 15,000 were fined, and 20,000 were handed community service orders. Just 34,600 were given time behind bars for their crimes while the rest were given a caution.

See You Again Next Week?

Our illustrious Justice Minister, Ken Clark, has already stated that he plans to release some 3,000 prisoners early to reduce overcrowding and save money, plus, according to news reports, he has told senior judges to reduce the numbers given custodial sentences, preferring community service orders to reduce re-offending.

Teens View Of Prison:

How can a qualified lawyer and Justice Minister be so out of touch with the real world! It beggars belief!

Currently, three quarters of all criminals caught return to crime in less than nine years, and very many after a few short weeks. And why not? They get all the benefits of a life of crime and if caught get a slap on the wrist or a laughable community service order, so where is the incentive to ‘go straight’!

Time In A Real Prison Would Set Them Straight

Time and again I have said the only thing young thugs and criminals understand these days is a prison system that puts the fear of God into them. Unfortunately Ken doesn’t read my blog! (sigh!)

Just when you think maybe, we have a government that will actually tackle head-on the ever growing crime on our streets and finally sort out these towrags once and for all, they turn out to be just as bad as the previous lot.

Starting Young!

When will we have a politician with balls enough to take away all the luxuries that prisoners enjoy at tax payers expense, and turn our prison system into what it should be, a deterrent. To be honest, I don’t think I will see it in my lifetime.

Roy.
