The Deterent

May 13, 2008

Crime will continue to rise or at least maintain the current level unless the government begin to impose the necessary deterent, imprisonment!

Street crime, even murder, involving young people is a common occurence now, hence I suggest the following deterent should be imposed on young people who commit serious criminal acts.

We must build young offenders prisons so as to give those found guilty of such criminal acts as car theft, driving without a licence and/or insurance, causing physical injury and unruly behaviour a hard taste of life behind bars. The young offender prisons should have single cells in which basic facilities only include a bed, chair, table, flush latrine and a wash-basin.

The guilty offender should be told by the court that the initial sentence of 3-6 months will be at least doubled should the offender come before any court again. A suspended sentence of 6 months should also be imposed and run concurrent as a means of guaranteeing good behaviour.

The offender will not be permitted to mingle with other offenders, will enjure one hour of outdoor PT twice per day administered by ex forces PTI’s. There shall be no gym facilties available, he/she will not be permitted the use of a phone or allowed to watch TV, but will be allowed selected piped radio stations and two selected books per week. One letter out and one in per week, eat what you are given, the alternatives being bread and water, or going without.

Carrying a knife will result in 5 years imprisonment, carrying a gun will result in ten years (if you ain’t gonna use it why carry it?).

An Horrific Road Death

May 14, 2007

The killer van driver pulled out at a road junction and hit 24 year old Adam who was on his motorcycle which had its twin headlights on. Having caused the crash the van driver did not stop to help Adam who was left lying in the road with horric injuries. A witness who was following Adam got out of her car and waved down a truck to prevent it running over Adam.

The van driver showed a blatant disregard for his critically injured victim who he left lying unprotected and dying in the road.

The van driver, by his own admission, had a problem with his glasses. It was also found that he had been on his mobile to his wife around the time of the ‘accident’. Even though he had a mobile phone the van driver did not bother to phone the emergency services for help. Adam died. (more…)
