Being given a voice is all I have ever wanted.
To be heard by the people that 'can make the changes happen.'
Being understood why people like me have had to live the way we have ...in order to survive.
Sentencing has to be over viewed on each individual case of said people involved.
The Laws most certainly have to be changed...and NOW ! ...not tomorrow .... because tomorrow isn't promised.
Detterance is the main key!
How crime and attitudes towards other human beings is portrayed on the media in games in videos in the music industry, encourages youth to follow suit.
We need to Educate from a very young age the rights and wrongs of simple plain living...what is acceptable and what isn't.
The justice system must stand strong and firm and stick by the sentencing as set at trials in court. Perpertrators should serve their full sentence..'even if they do behave in prison ' as to me that's saying if you be good in here we will let you out early...so obviously they play the game ...until they are released and then committ crimes again.
It has been quoted and noted and filmed on tv that prisons are 'cushy' the last programme I watched an inmate say 'look what i got man. When I get out I am doing it again to get back here' as he spoke he waved his arms about showing and gloating what he had in his large 'cell'. Branded trainers,special food in cupboards, free gym, free food free bed he went on and on. Now where this is wrong is ....victims are left to run with children quite often... to refuges that are run down on low money. We as victims suffer and go without, while the perpertrators rub in our noses what they get ...for being bad.
Now common sense tells me this is all wrong.
SO WHY on earth has it got to this stage?
oh yeah HUMAN RIGHTS !
Now in 2003 the human rights act was changed ...it appears that now the perpertrators abuse this and use it for their advantage.
Where I ask do our human rights come into play ?
