Now that’s real public service.

A US father who found his five-year-old daughter being raped, then beat the attacker to death will not be charged, prosecutors have said. The 23-year-old man told police he found the girl being assaulted on Saturday 9 June by Jesus Mora Flores in a rural part of southern Texas […] The father ran towards his daughter’s screams and as he found her being attacked, “inflicted several blows to the man’s head and neck area”, said investigators.

Quite right too. What he did was perfectly natural and reasonable. I see that a grand jury was convened (which made the decision) and that the father was investigated for homicide. I don’t know if either process was mandatory, but of not then then I don’t see the point of them once the facts are discovered. Just thank him instead.

Sean Gabb, Director of the Libertarian Alliance, has written some thoughts on the British Constitution. Titled, Thoughts on the Diamond Jubilee: Sixty Years a Rubber Stamp, it’s fair to say he’s not impressed with her below.

If only she’d treated her subordinate ministers the same way.

There’s alot of nonsense spoken about the Constitution, usually along the lines of “we don’t have one”, or “it’s unwritten”, or “Parliament can do what it likes”. Well we do, yes it is and no it can’t. I don’t quite agree with his every detail, but Gabb is one of the more lucid thinkers and writers out there. If you’re so interested, Bob Lomas, who I know is a great patriot and very knowledgable on the Constitution, has an interesting discussion with IanB in the comments. I recommend it all.

Human rights: The ruling to give prisoners the vote came despite widespread opposition from MPs

Here’s one for you. Do you think that prisoners should be allowed to vote?

Tens of thousands of prisoners must be given the right to vote, European human rights judges have ruled. In a judgment which will provoke fury in Parliament, the Strasbourg court said that the current ban on inmates voting in England and Wales breached human rights laws. The ruling by the court’s highest body, the Grand Chamber, came despite an overwhelming vote last year by MPs who insisted the ban was right and should remain in place.

My view is that they should NOT be given the precious right to vote, they forfeited that the day they decided to commit crime and were then caught and sentenced. It’s a con if the cons get a vote.

A glaring example of what has gone wrong in our legal system;

A benefit cheat who swindled more than £63,000 by pretending to be a single mother has been given 240 years to pay the money back. Mariam Qureshi, 33, walked free from court after claiming she could spare just £10.20 a fortnight to reimburse the taxpayer. The mother-of-three – who made fraudulent claims for £63,437.03 in Income Support and council tax benefit between 2005 and 2009 – blamed the cost of her debts and £800-a-month mortgage. 

Got that?  240 years to pay back her debt.

Knocks head against wall, knowing it is not his head!

As I grow older, I continually find ever newer ways that the Liberal, Leftie, Politically-correct have instigated to show that they ‘Understand Criminals’ and hope to ‘Show them the error of their ways’.

Something which, although possibly not entirely new, is called, (I kid you not) the ‘Thinking Skills Programme’.

Part of the National Offender Management Programme (N.O.M.S.), they claim it will :-

• manage the things in your life that lead you
to offend
• develop ways to stop you offending
• get what you want out of life without offending.

and involve

 self control
problem solving
positive relationships

As perhaps a speedy visit to our Blogging confederate Winston Smith would confirm, talking or trying to understand the feral youth and/or full-time criminals is just a waste of time! Winston, by the way, has sadly has given up the uneven struggle, and returned to Ireland for the sake of his mental health.

When will these stupid, dangerous people within the Home Office understand that the ONLY punishment which works with the criminal class is a long period of deprivation of their liberty, in a tough prison with no tv, no bloody computers or X-boxes, a spartan diet, and prison guards who will take no backchat at all?

As you know, I believe that capital punishment is a fitting punishment for murderers. In the case of serial murderers, life behind bars only creates possibilities.

The Yorkshire Ripper has launched a legal battle to get a state pension to the fury of his victims’ relatives. Serial killer Peter Sutcliffe plans to go to the European Court of Human Rights arguing that he has a right to draw a state pension because he paid his taxes while he was working before being jailed for the brutal murders of 13 women in 1981. If he is successful, the 65-year-old could pocket £137.35 a week in Broadmoor Hospital where he is currently being held.

This raises several questions.

For example, how can this murderer AFFORD such a legal action? I assume he must be able to get legal aid to advance his demand. I also am guessing that some legal beagles have been prepared to take on this case. What does that say about them? This shows the farce that Legal Aid has become and the sooner we dramatically cut back on access to it, the better.

On the specifics of the claim, surely Sutcliffe has a case. That’s IF you believe that prison should not be about punishment. I DO believe that punishing criminals is a good idea but we live at a time  when the EU is demanding that we allow prisoners to vote. If they can vote, why deny them pensions? Neither would be applicable in this case had Sutcliffe met with effective justice  – the noose.

Further to my post on the nature of Policing, it’s also worth remembering what happens when villains are caught and brought to court;

When the parishioners of St Mary’s saw the state of their 13th century church after thieves tore lead worth £50,000 from the roof they tried to be forgiving. But it seems even the most lenient-minded couldn’t match the mercy shown by magistrates – who let the culprits off with a 12-month community order.

Romanians (sic) Florin Stan, 24, Vergil Stan, 51, and Nicolae Birsan, 26, broke through the church’s main gates on two consecutive nights last month, helping themselves to a huge amount of lead. Thanks to CCTV and the vigilance of the churchwarden and police, they were arrested the next day. All admitted theft when they appeared before magistrates in Hinckley, Leicestershire.

So, Romanians come into this country, get stuck into a life of crime by stealing £50,000 worth of  Lead from a Church roof (more of that rich multicultural experience!), are caught red-handed….and they get off with a community order.

What message do you think THAT sends to the criminal fraternity? If the calculation is a/Will I get caught? and b/What happens if I do get caught? then the most worrying aspect is that this sort of sentence surely encourages future crime? How can this help prevent crime and doesn’t it make the law an even bigger affront to justice?

Did you read that Germany is rejecting demands from an EU body that it should stop surgically castrating sex criminals – a practice that dates back to the Nazis – because it is ‘degrading’.

Defying Brussels, the German government said it intends to carry on with the practice citing low re-offending rates among sex criminals who had opted to have the procedure. It pointed out the results of a 1997 study that tracked the history of 104 sexual offenders ‘who subjected themselves to castration in the decade between 1970 and 1980. Their reoffending rate was three per cent,’ the German authorities explained, ‘as opposed to 46 per cent for a control group.’

To be honest, I am surprised at the 3% re-offending rate post castration. Seems high. Is this an appropriate sanction? On balance YES. When we read the daily litany of horrific sexual attacks on some of the most vulnerable people  – including very young children – I think castration may well be an appropriate sanction.

The name rings a bell

When we read or hear of the name Rooney in either newspapers or on tv newscasts, the expectation is that the person under discussion is the foul-mouthed publicity hound who plays (if that is the correct term) for a football club. He, being, or so I am lead to believe, extraordinarily talented; may consider himself beyond the bounds which control most of us in terms of behaviour within his family, his footballing work, or his persona as a ‘Sleb’.

But enough of Wayne, the person of whom I write is as far removed from his world as we are. She is 75 year-old Josephine Rooney, who is planning to leave her home in Hartington Street in Derby because she cannot take the daily strain of living in a drug-dealers paradise. She is planning to live in Ireland, because the police and the Council have literally given up on her neighbourhood, and the criminals rule, and laugh, and know that there will be no reprisal for the atmosphere which is so crime-laden that an ordinary woman feels so insecure that she plans to leave.

At the start of a New Year, it’s useful to consider the state of disrepair this State has fallen into;

The man accused of shooting a student in the head on Boxing Day gave his first name as ‘Psycho’ when he appeared in court yesterday charged with murder. Kiaran Stapleton, 20, who lives in the Ordsall neighbourhood of Salford where 23-year-old Anuj Bidve was killed, was asked his name when he appeared in the dock. He replied: ‘Psycho. Psycho Stapleton.’ The clerk at Manchester City Magistrates’ court then tried to clarify by asking: ‘Are you Kiaran Stapleton?’  The defendant replied: ‘No. Psycho Stapleton.’

Now, without wishing to comment on the specifics of this case for obvious reason, “Psycho” Stapleton epitomises the lack of self respect and respect for the law that a feral section of society celebrates. There is a minority of people out there who happily operate outside of all civil behaviour, who use violence readily and easily, and who pay NO attention to the hand wringing excuse making on their behalf by liberals. They need the full weight of the law applied to them with the most draconian punishments possible. Anything else absolves them and makes them consider us weak. Psycho is not alone, he is legion.
