Is our Justice System Broken.
Bloody oath it is!
The reason it's broken is because the govt has been on a cost cutting mission for decades.
What confuses me is, whilst they have been selling off everything, by privatising it, thereby not having to spend billions on the services they sold off, why is it that we are still being ripped off with ever increasing costs, on EVERYTHING.
Not just the private services but govt ones as well.
Such as car registrations, fuel, and the list is endless.
I would have thought, once having sold these things off, we would at least see a normalizing of costs to the consumer, but no we are still being gouged more and more year by year.
So I want to know, where is all this money going, and believe me, it's a shipload of money, not small change by any means.
The justice system is broken when a moronic police commissioner comes on the TV and says stupid things like 'we are not here to educate the public, the public should know the law'.
I remember fuming at this prick.
If I had been there I'm sure I would have gone for his throat.
What an unthinking idiotic thing to say.
My response to that is; 'OK smartarse, your the top cop, let's see YOU recite EVERY stuffed up law in your job'.
This is the kind of idiocy we have to contend with.
We all know the idiot would barely be able to cough up even 20% of them.
As it takes at 50% for any pass rate in society, I would suggest that he is a failure.
Another broken part of the justice system, is; In the constitution, it was very clear that anyone charged with an offence, could only be 'judged' by a jury of twelve of his peers.
So then, the current system is illegal, if not for the fact it was conveniently changed by the 'system' without any consultation with the public.
Because it was in the constitution, the only way to 'legally' change it is by referendum.

ALTRAV has you ever asked why so many who plainly should be in prison are let walk free?
Or thought maybe a limited, because of costs of prison,is in place for how many can be sent to prison?
I have and something is very rotten

Belly, I've wondered that, and a great deal many more things.
Why do you think I get so animated and upset with commentors or people who think everything is rosey and 'she'll be right'.
If we would stop pandering to these 'fairies' and dreamers and bring back a few of the 'old' ideals, like compulsory National Service, be allowed to administer physical punishment to our children, allow teaching institutions to do the same if the students 'played up'.
These practices are deemed abhorrent to the weaker of our generation, so we have allowed ourselves to be brought down to their level, which is by it's very nature, 'un-disciplined'.
I would incarcerate anyone who caused another physical harm, reason dependent, of course.
I come from a generation where the youth addressed someone older by there surname, and not by their first name.
How can we expect the younger commentors to be mature and able to reason, when they were taught to 'say and do whatever they liked, because they were old enough to think for themselves and were answerable orbeholding to no-one but themselves'.
The one thing these idiots forgot was toteach them how to do all these things that they were now 'old enough' to do.
And so we have ended up with this failure of a society who's so far up itself, it hasn't seen reality in years, and at this rate is not likely to ever see it either.
Society is resorting to the days of old when even the Roman empire got so comfortable and cocky with it's ruling the known world, it let down it's guard and began seeking more pleasurable pursuits, with it's orgy's and 'good times', and what happened it finally collapsed into this seething mess called, Italy.
Belly, yes, 'something IS very rotten' here, and I believe, unless we sideline the do-gooders, or throw them in front of the baddies, so they feel the true state of our social system, and they come out of the experience with injury or death, will they begin to curb their ignorant and mis-guided beliefs and attitudes.

Take Melbourne ALTRAV, please take it, while a Sydney sider once, it is a more livable place than the harbor one.
Yes history if full of white gangs even bikers gangs, but right now, walking those streets, kids know! know! they can get a few let offs before being put away.
Why?
Why not use confinement to teach prisoners to read write live with other people.
How can a group overrule the Federal Minister when he says send some back to the country they came from?

We will talk again about this issue, it is a basic truth no matter what politicians say, most things are shared by both sides of politics.
Yes given our wants and wishes the middle and both side would get lougher terms in prison for most.
We, I truly think, would question how some got to become judges and magistrates, even demand some be removed.
How we could ever separate the good cop from the few ego driven rat bags is beyond me.
Why privatize? surely only failure to put key performance indicators and make them pass or out you go, is done to falsely prove it is cheaper to sell what we own?
