Imprisoned - But Now What?

Imprisoned – But Now What?

We all know that when Tony Blair welcomed five and a half million immigrants into our country he didn’t do us any favours, but he also let in a lot of criminals. Apart from the load having to be carried by the Benefits System, NHS and housing, these criminals are now costing the British tax payer £850 million a year that could be better spent helping our own.

Those that are caught can be sent to prison, but the fact is, once they have served their term the authorities have enormous difficulty in deporting them. Because of the ridiculous restraints placed on our Justice System by the E.U. in Brussels we cannot send them back where they came from. Literally thousands of immigrant career criminals remain in the U.K. simply because we cannot deport them.

Our Justice System has become so lax that one foreign convict in six ducks under the radar and cannot be found. Of the rest, it’s the same old story, appeal after appeal. The U.K. currently has 4,200 foreign criminals living within communities, and thousands of offenders are setting up home in this country instead of being deported.

The Cost Of Immigrants

The Cost Of Immigrants

Since 2006 the number of foreign prisoners has risen by 4% while the number of deportations has fallen. Because of all the appeals, it takes almost ten years to deport a convicted criminal from our shores. That’s almost as long as it took to get rid of Abu Qatada and Abu Hamsa. This is clearly ridiculous!

James Brokenshire, the Immigration and Security Minister has reportedly said: “The countless appeals and re-appeals lodged by criminals attempting to cheat the system cost us all money and are an affront to British justice. Too little progress has been made, despite the increased resources and effort devoted to this problem.”

However, changes are being made to the Immigration Act that will hopefully make the system easier. James Brokenshire said during the interview: “New powers came into force this week to cut the number of grounds on which criminals can appeal their deportation and to end the appeals conveyor belt in the courts. The Immigration Act will help us deliver an immigration system that is fair to the people of this country and legitimate immigrants and tough on those who flout the rules.” All I can say is let’s hope so!

This appeal farce has been going on far too long and it is well past time we toughened up the system so these people cannot slip through the net. Our entire Justice System has become a mockery, where just sentences cannot be handed out because we might trample on someone’s human rights!

But there is another reason for this failure. Government auditors found almost 1,500 failed removals, and of those a third might have been avoided if there had been fewer administrative errors, and better co-ordination between different government departments. It is a sad fact that only one in every 25 files sent to the Home Office to start the process for removal had the right identity documents. It would seem the Tory Party and David Cameron just cannot get their hands around this problem and deal with it effectively.

The Law and Human Rights

It is without doubt time we got rid of the Human Rights Laws as dictated by Brussels and went back to the tried and tested system of British Justice as it was before all this E.U. nonsense. The right to appeal should of course be given, but then it should be restricted to three times within a maximum of three months and no more. This current system of repeating appeals for years and years until you get what you want is ridiculous. In that way, these parasites can be gone after three months and it will hopefully serve as a warning to the rest.

Sham Marriage To Avoid Deportation

Sham Marriage To Avoid Deportation

Some of the more ridiculous successes in avoiding deportation I have reported on before, usually involving Clause 8 of the Human Rights Act: The Right to Family Life. As has happened, many immigrant criminals have abused this Act by marrying a British girl, which means they cannot be deported under this Statute. So far as I am concerned, He should still go and his wife can choose to go with him or not.

Why should this country be home to foreigners who cannot live within the law, we have more than enough of our own!

The UK’s Two-Faced Stance On Cybercrime

Posted in Britain, England, Extradition, Government, Hacker, Hackers, Health, Insanity, MP's, Police, Prison, Teens, UK, USA with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on 12/07/2011 by floroy1942

I couldn’t help but laugh when I read an article about the Home Office stance on cyber-crime last week, when Crime and Security Minister James Brokenshire said at the International Cyber Security Protection Alliance launch that “there should be no safe havens for cyber-criminals”! He called for  ‘international treaties, bilateral treaties, and common agreements between nations to make sure miscreants active outside their home country can be prosecuted when scams and hacks take place’.

Can’t Touch Me-I’ve Got Asperger’s!

I definitely agree with the statement, but I couldn’t help feeling it was two-faced considering the case of Gary McKinnon, who was arrested in Britain in 2002 for hacking into Pentagon and NASA computer systems. He caused hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of damage and is still wriggling his way out of deportation to the States for trial after nine years. The US government has been trying to have him extradited since 2002 when the FBI and British police tracked him down. Initially, his defence stated he was looking for evidence of UFO’s, but when that didn’t seem to work they suddenly found out he was suffering from Aspeger’s Syndrome. How convenient!

The sad thing is, as the case drags on people are now feeling sorry for him and want him released. It’s ridiculous! They seem to have totally forgotten that he is a criminal and deserves punishment. It’s people like him that cause misery, expense, and often despair among computer users across the globe.

It is worthy to note that Asperger’s Syndrome did not appear to have any impact McKinnon’s ability to answer questions or explain himself during this interview. In fact, he came across as a perfectly normal person and much more intelligent than the two fawning interviewers who did nothing to hide their sympathy and support for him. To me, this man’s ‘defence’ is the weakest I have ever heard!

Ryan Cleary-That’s Funny So Have I!

Ryan Cleary, who is alleged to be a member of the now defunct Lulzec Group was caught a couple of weeks ago. Cleary, who is said to be highly intelligent, is going down the same road as McKinnon by claiming he too suffers from Asperger’s Syndrome, and if these two stick to their stories they may never face trial.

“Asperger’s Syndrome is distinguished by a pattern of symptoms rather than a single symptom. It is characterized by qualitative impairment in social interaction, by stereotyped and restricted patterns of behavior, activities and interests, and by no clinically significant delay in cognitive development or general delay in language. Intense preoccupation with a narrow subject, one-sided verbosity, restricted prosody, and physical clumsiness are typical of the condition, but are not required for diagnosis.” Quote from Wikipedia.

What this says in a nutshell is that a sufferer does not mix with others well, and suffers excessive concentration and attention on a single subject. It however goes on to say there is no significant impairment of cognitive development (i.e. relating to the process of acquiring knowledge by the use of reasoning, intuition, or perception) or general delay in language (i.e. no speech or understanding impairment).

Now to me, this does not mean these two have any excuse for ducking the legal process, or for that matter, deportation when required by another government. They may not be functioning the full 100%, but close enough to it to face their comeuppance.

So this whole scenario makes the statement by Brokenshire somewhat of a barefaced lie. You cannot go around asking other countries to stop being a haven for cyber-criminals when we ourselves do just that. Every hacker, spammer, and cyber-criminal who gets caught can just claim to have Aspergers Syndrome and walk free!

Do As You Would Be Done By?

But there again, why not? Stranger things have happened within the British justice system! It seems the Home Office have forgotten the old saying: “If you wish to lead, lead by example!”
