She agrees with what I have printed in this blog time and time again, that a life sentence should mean LIFE, and not a meagre few years for blatant murder.
How many times has the police wasted their time gathering evidence to bring a case like this to court, for an idiotic judge to a pass sentence of anything from 10 to 12 years, and call it a life sentence? This might be a life sentence if it were being passed to a ninety year old, but not to young people in their teens, up to their forties, who find themselves free to kill again, without serving a reasonable term for their horrific crime.
How many times has families stood in court to hear justice done for some member of their family who has been brutally murdered only to be let down by the idiot judge who is supposed to represent justice, but that thinks 10 years is a life sentence to a teenager?
Almost every week we hear of cases like this in the news, and nothing is ever done about it by the justice system or the government.
It is very refreshing to hear Elish Angiolini QC, speaking on behalf of these victims, so hopefully she will do something about it instead of just speaking about it.
After all, what is the point of calling it a life sentence when they have no intention of keeping them in jail until they are dead?
The judges who pass out these lenient sentences would be shocked if they realized how many people have died because they were stupid enough to pass out these lenient sentences to brutal killers who are just biding their time to get out to kill again. I have said it before and I will say it again these judges are aiding and abetting these callous killers and should be brought to book when these people kill again, as they are no different to any other worker that makes a hash of their work, and gets sacked.
For the benefit of the do-good brigade, proper life sentences have proved to deter crime in other civilized countries where more sensible decisions are made, so its time the Scottish judicial system took a tumble to itself.
Kenny McCaskill our excuse for a Justice Minister has already made an international fool of our justice system, so its about time we regained our pride, and started doing the proper thing towards the victims of this country that is SCOTLAND, and let the thistle, and the Scottish nation have reason to stand proud again!
