BURGLARS AND RAPISTS BEING LET OFF WITH A POLICE CAUTION GROWS – The UK’s prisons are bursting at the seams and without anywhere to accommodate criminals the only result is to caution them and set them free.
It’s not just the fact that the UK’s prisons are overcrowded but the Government insists on Police Forces around the country to meet stringent crime solving targets and therefore this is putting the police under pressure to persuade victims of rape not to file charges.

I would challenge anyone to argue that the British Justice System is a well oiled and competent machine.
Sure we can blame it on the judges, which is often the case, or blame it on the police. The truth is that our Police Forces and our Judges are not to blame for the lack of justice being handed out; as they merely take their direction from the Government and the laws it creates.
There are three culprits of our failing justice system, these being; the liberal left-wing, the Government and the public.
Political correctness rules with an iron fist and the liberal left-wing refuse to acknowledge that perpetrators of crime are not victims of a society that affords them little opportunity; they are simply people who know they can get away with committing a crime without any consequences to their actions.
As for the politicians; well they are simply too frightened to stand up and tell the truth. They are fully aware that society is crumbling under the weight of political correctness where punishment is seen as draconian, medieval and that to create a utopian society we must, at all costs, show more compassion.
While this may appear admirable the compassion is not directed at the victims but rather the criminals and even when the law does require imprisonment they are sent to a place that affords them luxuries that most hard working taxpayers’ are unlikely to match.
It may appear almost impossible to believe that 1 in 5 offenders, who commit a ‘serious crime’, are provided with a police caution; but in the last 10 years alone over 18,000 police cautions were handed out for sexual offenses and violent assaults.
Today any criminal, even with multiple offenses under their belt, are likely to be either given a police caution or provided with a ‘suspended’ sentence by a judge.
The cost of crime is a huge burden on the taxpayer and it’s not made any easier when those imprisoned can use the legal aid system, as some are currently doing in a case to contest the Governments ban on the right to vote for prisoners.
I have spoken to hundreds of people regarding the failure of our system of justice; and it is quite clearly failing in their eyes.
We have so many issues that need addressing in our society and yet few will stand up and openly acknowledge the truth; let alone provide ideas and possible solutions to the issue of crime.
In my view this makes the public weak willed as they continue to accept a degrading society and whilst they moan about it they will do little to rectify it.
You have to remember that the Government will NOT do anything as controversial as bringing back the death penalty or the birch without majority public support and furthermore to appease the liberal left-wing they won’t even discuss the prospect without such support that must be overwhelming.
It will take a countrywide public debate in order to start off a chain of reaction where a referendum could be provided to bring back the death penalty and the birch.
There are arguments that the death penalty is not a deterrent and that is probably quite accurate but that’s not the point. The idea behind the death penalty is to remove, permanently, from society those who wish to harm others in a most heinous fashion; such as violent rape and murder. Think how much of the taxpayers’ money could have been saved if Myra Hindley and Ian Brady has been executed.
As for administering the birch; I wonder how many criminals would come back for a second helping of the birch. Again the birch or flogging may not be an initial deterrent but it would be highly effective in reducing repeat offending and its much cheaper that imprisoning an offender for months or even years.
Unfortunately many will see the idea of the death penalty and the birch as draconian and in a civilized society we should not tackle violence with violence. This very ideology is the main perpetrator as to why we live our lives in fear of crime and the growing number of terrorist acts in the United Kingdom.
As we continue to turn the other cheek each time we are slapped in the face this results in a clear message that criminal activity is not only acceptable it is encouraged.
There is a way to reduce crime but that requires a public policy of zero tolerance and until the British people finally start to spread the word that change must come we will continue to see a rise in crime; that will ultimately be addressed with a police caution or a suspended sentence.
Do we need a change in the law so that criminals can be properly punished? Would it be so degrading of our society to insist upon the reinstatement of the death penalty and the birch? Please leave your comments below.
