I'm just curious if i'm the only person thats fustrated about this. Our justice system here in canada is run by idoits (don't know if its the same as elsewhere, however i'm sure it is......).
Last febuary someone was driving drunk at 120km/h in a 60km/h zone and ran a man over and killed him instantly. He was granted bail 2 days later, all he was given as a punishment was 50 hours for councoling.
In June, a kid was bullying another child my age, the victim tried running away, and a car hit him. He was killed. The bully was told not to do it again.
Just last week, a couple of kids pushed a phyisically handicaped kid off his chair into a shed, locked the doors and set it a flame, they where 8 years old. The parents did nothing. As for the police, they couldn't do as much as tap them on the rist with thier finger.
I live in the car theft capital of north america. 80% of the thefts are done by kids under 18, 90% of those kids have been in and out of the police station 15 times. But the police can't do anything about them because of curent laws which forbide them to do so.
What i'm getting to here is that, over the years kids grow up, some having parents not caring where they are at all hours of the night. Am i the only one here that believes that its time for change. Its time that childrens names be revield after thier 2nd offence. That they be punished as an adult after thier 3rd?
Am I the only one who believes that after an adults comits a serious crime 3 times that they should forever remain in jail, because they have proven they can't be trusted.
As you can tell i'm curently enraged at how little our gouverment does as a hole to protect others, when they know they are doing something wrong. When your 10 you know the difference between right and wrong. To me a child over the age of 11 should be punished as an adult. They know stealing, murder and harm to others is wrong, so why let them get away with it. It'll only get worse in the future as they begin to relize that they can get away with everything and anything. Why should we teach the generation of tomorrow that crime pays.
