This is a classic example of the justice system letting us down. This guy is obviously not evil, he's just stupid. He doesn't deserve to be dragged in an out of courts and departments for the rest of his life.
Wouldn't a good flogging be more appropriate? It's over in an hour and the poor bastard can get back to living his life and whatever he's done wrong, he probably won't do it again.
I mean, do the pencil necks in the Justice Department really want to make our communities safer, or do they just want more "customers" so that they can get more funding for their air-conditioned offices and Government cars?
I see it as an example of the justice system working. Not really...i cant really tell what the story is because the first post was so cryptic. But ill go against you anyway-
A good hour of flogging? No. That would be bad. Maybe this dude is just cognitively diminutive in comparison to others; those are the people who NEED more than just one hour of correction.
Those are the people who need help to structure their lives. The only way he will be dragged in and out of courts is if he keeps offending. And i want him to be dragged in and out of depts. He needs people around him to look after him, tell him not to do so many drugs, help him fill out job apps etc
Do you really think that the answer is:
1- find a person who has proven that they cant make smart decisions (i.e people who do crimes)
2- beat them
3- relase them back into their same social groups, living conditions, drug habbits etc and leave them to their own devices
well im doing the right thing and going to court tommorow after going into the court to make a application. what i have requested is that my community service is brought back into fines which i pay every fortnight so which means I can leave the state without being stuck down to a committment except the repayment which is automatically deducted. I told the ladies at the front counter that I dont wish to be stuck down in South Australia since its extremely few hours because i had it converted from fines to begin with and they understood. Anyone think this is the best way i could approach this?
