A day in the life of the so-called justice system

Yet again we learn that the perpetrator of a vile murder should have been in jail at the time of the crime. The father of one of the victims has spoken out, calling for prosecutions. Too bloody right, but fat chance of that under the current rule. According to the Mail:

"Justice Secretary Jack Straw apologised to the victims' families and a senior probation officer resigned over the blunders that left Sonnex free to kill.

But Guy Bonomo, the father of murdered Laurent, called for a prosecution, saying every official who allowed Dano Sonnex to remain on licence - even after his parole was revoked - should defend their actions in court.

Speaking in French after a press conference at Scotland Yard, he said he and the other parents had been 'failed' by Britain and its justice system.

He said: 'Sonnex should have been back in prison on June 13th, but he was not. He was not arrested until it was too late.

'I think that the people in the justice system who allowed him out on licence should be prosecuted.

'I think that every person concerned who had something to do with this should be in front of a court."

That is one of the most heinous crimes I have ever read about and made me sick to my stomach. Another epic FAIL in our justice system.

I also read about a 19 year old boy who was given a ticking off and placed on the sex offenders register, whatever the hell that does, for raping a 13 year old girl and knocking her up. She has since tried to kill herself over it. His lawyer got him off with a light sentence saying he didn't have any parenting and was therefore unaware what he was doing was wrong. Im sure. With all the porn out there telling men rape and violent sex is acceptable or is fine Im not surprised. Meanwhile - no sentence, no punishment and he is out and about walking free. The police were in despair over it. No wonder they don't always bother.

It makes me want to grab a weapon and start shooting lawyers whilst blowing up Parliament into the bargain and establishing myself as Queen.

I think you've found the one crime that our legal system will deal with severely!
