Britain is soft on crime and the Criminals know it. I have been stirred to write something here after seeing the case of an acid attack victim, Andreas Christopheros, who was basically given a life sentence because of his injuries that he received from the callous actions of David Phillips who was originally given a Life Sentence which was scaled down to 16 yrs ( so out on the streets after 8 yrs) because the Courts did not consider him a Dangerous Man. Well how do they class what is a dangerous man then? I would say of any person willing and able to throw acid into the face of another is a very dangerous individual from whom the public need protecting. This was not the actions of a reasonable human being. Reducing the sentence of Phillips is an outrage and an affront to Justice!
Mr Christopheros has been given a life sentence by this man so it was right that Phillips received the same like for like Life Sentence for the perpetration of this crime.
Over a series of post I will be looking at the failing British Judicial System in Britain to find out why it is not working and why the criminals are laughing at the sentences that they receive. These punishments are no deterrent and serve only to perpetuate criminal activities in today’s Britain. I used to work for the Probation Service so I know what a fiasco and joke it is and what takes place behind their closed doors. I will give you my insights into this and show why the current guidelines on sentencing are failing the public and why the Probation Service is failing to enforce the ideas behind the court sentencing. We will look at why the Conservative Governments are not taking this issue seriously and paying it only lip service. We will go on to look at Youth Crime and who should be made responsible and how this issue can be tackled. I will look at why Criminals need to serve the full term for offences and not to be released at the halfway point of their sentence. We will look at these early release plans in detail and see who actually benefits from these arrangements and why they have been introduced mainly to stop over-crowding in prisons. Finally I will be arguing and petitioning that we need to re-introduce the Death Penalty for very serious crimes.
