Dear Belly,

There is a system that is broken and it isn't so much the justice system but rather our capitalist system.

Capitalism is not a bad system when the checks and balances are in place to move its excesses.

The responsibility for imprisoning someone should rest solely with the government. A person's liberty is being taken away from them and the role of managing the incarceration should not be contracted out, especially to the lowest bidder.

Private prisons are an anathema and should be done away with.

I can tell of a state informing it workers about privatization.
After being picked, by workers, as one of six state worker representatives on the peak body of the then Roads And Traffic authority training began.
Both union and RTA dureing that RTA training it was said in an effort to increase the number of firms, big enough to both contract and do so in an open market.
Losses in costs, productivity, and quality would take place.
Think about that
Socialism for? private enterprise
After the first contracts came about, it was a shock to see, owners of those firms, had worked supervising those very tasks,,, for the RTA!
Time passed, I became one of the flood of voluntary? redundancy takers.
Then a union official, looking after along with many others, my ex workmates
From a storm in to a fire storm! those firms, overnight, went broke, owing massive sums to workers.
The protections of these days not then in place
wait there is more
The next day, under a different name, most of those privatized firms reopened.
we can run government enterprizes on budget, if we dump the air wasters we pick to run them,behind privatization some who have no right to are taking us for a ride

Dear Belly,

I'm not sure about our justice system being broken.
However, I often question the leniency of some of the
sentencing. But I don't know enough about the subject
to speak about it. However I don't believe in the
privatisation of our jails. No way. The privately
run detention centres that we read about are horrific.
And have bad reputations and little or no accountability
or transparency. So I can't even begin to imagine what
our privately run prisons would be like.

Foxy all views have value and I too am concerned about the very different sentences handed down.
Too bail, often in domestic violence cases and the offenders have even murdered the victim while on bail.
Those who hand down the law,some times in later life, face court them selves.
Serving police officers,in NSW at least, sometimes have criminal convictions but continue to serve.

What sort of character are the hierarchy in the Judiciary ? I don't think they're in touch with those whose lives they're having so much impact on, be it negative or positive.
