Theresa May

It was interesting to read reports that Home Secretary Theresa May is to tell the Police Federation at their Bournemouth annual conference, that in future, police killers will get life without parole. Currently, the sentence for killing a police officer is thirty years, but the government are in the process of making that a mandatory life sentence, meaning life. So in other words, if you kill a police officer you die in prison.

I read with interest the comments from readers on this piece of news, and was not surprised to see that everyone said the same thing, it should be life for all killers. “What is so special about the police, why not everyone?” I have to say that for premeditated murder at least, this should be the case. Since we have done away with the death sentence, many killers have escaped true justice with paltry sentences that make a mockery of the law, and that has to stop.

Since 2000 there have been twelve police officers killed in the line of duty, which you may not think is many considering the number of civilians who have died, but you have to remember that we, the people, pay these individuals to deliberately put themselves in harm’s way to protect us. For that they should have some justice from us, and the justice system. I readily admit that as a police force they are not always ‘lily white’, but compared to forces in most other countries they are one of the very best, so why should we not protect them.

It is a fact of modern life that you hear almost every day of someone, somewhere, being killed unlawfully and yet we hear all too often of the killers getting away with a seven year sentence or less. In some cases the Human Rights Laws have been used in court and the killer has walked away Scot free. This is not justice!

The Bulger Killers

I have always held the belief that the one true way of making people think twice before killing someone is the death penalty. When I was young, you could almost count on your fingers the number of murder victims a year, because these people knew that when they were caught they would be ‘hung by the neck until dead’! Now there is no such deterrent and they literally ‘get away with murder’.

Is This British Justice?

Is This British Justice?

We have these days, killers as young as nine and ten years old and yet the justice system seems totally unable to hand out ‘just’ sentences. As a prime example of this, the Bulger killers did not spend long in jail before being released, despite beating to death a two-year-old. The investigating detectives described them as ‘pure evil’ in the making. When you consider that our prisons today are more like five-star hotels than a place of punishment, it just makes the whole situation worse. Being ‘banged up’ is like a holiday compared to what it used to be.

The Scales of Justice?

The Scales of Justice?

I agree wholeheartedly with Theresa May’s proposal for it has been long overdue, however, like most people I don’t think it goes far enough. To reduce crime we need to be tough on crime. We need to make sentences and our prison service so tough that no-one ever wants to go back, and only then will we see a significant drop in crime figures. To hell with this ‘Human Rights’ crap, for all that has done is tilt the scales of justice in the criminals favour. Lets start being really tough on crime.

Post Addition: This is to show how easy prisoners have it in British jails. For those that commit crime, be it burglary, robbery or murder, there is nothing to make them afraid of going back, as there used to be.

Pretty self-explanatory really. It is plain to see that prisoners in UK jails have a very easy time whilst ‘inside’, and there is really nothing to fear about going back. Certainly not for a killer!
