Sadly,the thought of actually punishing people for what they’ve done takes a back seat to the insane belief that they can be rehabilitated. It’s not though, just scum like this who should suffer stiffer penalties but as long as the law is stacked so heavily in favour of the criminal, nothing will change and in fact will worsen. We’ll intentioned laws such as the Human Rights Act were originally created to fight atrocities, mainly in third world countries or where democracy didn’t exist but sadly it’s been completely misused by clever lawyers and activist groups to make “punishment” harder.
It makes my blood boil when I watch the snearing faces of criminals being interviewed by the police constantly using the “no comment” option. In years gone by, rightly or wrongly, the police would have extracted the answers from these people. Now there’s no respect for the law and our police have to suffer abuse and violence from the scumbags they have to encounter. And it isn’t just the police, it’s health workers, firemen and other people who have to attend to these low lives. WE should all hang our heads in shame because WE have allowed this to happen.
