    Default Juvenile crime

    And politicians wonder why juvenile crime is out of control........


    Courier Mail Brisbane:

    "The teenager who murdered mother-of-two Emma Lovell after breaking into her home with a knife had previously been convicted of 84 offences but never spent a day in custody.Instead, he repeatedly breached probation orders even while undergoing court-ordered weekly sessions in a research-based program called Changing Habits and Reaching Targets.
    Now aged 19, the teen was 17 with a lengthy criminal history when he broke into the Lovell family’s home at North Lakes in the City of Moreton Bay."



    It appears that the court ordered weekly sessions really helped...

    I would like to hear" A minimum sentence" not a maximum.

    Ummmm.....maybe it's just me, but it seems pretty clear that the gutless politicians and the hand wringer infected judiciary are the ones who need to do a course in "Changing Habits and Reaching Targets".

    He should be given a choice of calibre, that's all.
    The fact that there's a highway to hell and a stairway to heaven says a lot about the anticipated traffic flow.

    I have said for a long time that sentencing guidelines need to be reviewed.
    1st offence guideline minimum sentence of 50% of max, offenders circumstances may be taken into consideration as they are now. Also time served in rehabilitation type environement
    After first court appearanc e/ conviction all sentences must be consecutive.
    2nd offence (for similar type of offence) guideline minimum 75%. No consideration of offenders circumstaces. TO be served in punishment type faciity
    3rd offense max
    Jury, with majority vote, can increase sentence to guideline minimum of they feel judge has been too leniant

    No no, you're not thinking ~ if you give them the choice of calibre, then the crown/state has to own every size of firearm...

    ...so calibre is fixed, they get a choice between snub-nosed & hollow-point rounds =)

    I was a tree lopper in a previous life. We (unintentionally) managed to feed a few possums through the chipper. Always blocked the (discharge) chute and made a hell of a mess. There was a real crime documentary show that described a bloke who committed a near perfect crime. He got caught because he was using a chipper on a bridge at three in the morning in the middle of no-where. Someone just happened to see him. All the cops found was one tooth. Apparently he killed his wife, chopped her up, froze her and then hired a chipper and fed her through. Cops searched the creek and found a tooth. He was convicted.
