William is right, hard labour is what’s needed not a cushy over night in the joy. A nice pink jump suit and community service. Clean the streets, clean off graffiti, clean out canals and river banks. Make them work off their crimes

    Well said Gary, hard labour similar to the regime in Japanese prisons would not go amiss. Where is all the money coming from to support all this continuous uncontrolled drinking binge ?

    Thats fair enough Gary but then you ned to employ people to supervise them. An easier solution is to do what they used todo in the Isle of Man with thugs, a taste of the birch would quickly cure them. It’s a pity that their parents can’t teach them some manners.

    It is innocent unemployed people who are being put onto the forced labour schemes, the thugs are given a cushy few months in an open prison with their own room TV gym football great food etc.

    The old phrase ” you don’t kick a man when he’s down “springs to mind. This secondary attack was vicious, callous, unnecessary and cowardly. Judges are supposed to tailor punishments to fit crimes.Its pretty clear now, that they rarely will. The question is why. Ted Bundy, the notorious serial killer was training to become a prosecutor, with ambitions to become a judge, before he was caught at random. Recent studies in the US have shown that as many as ten per cent of prosecutors are psychopaths. Ten per cent of CEO’s of major corporations have also been shown to be psychopaths. So, it’s not that much of a stretch to understand why psychopathic judges will be lenient on vicious thugs, peadophiles, rapists, etc. They typically go easy on their own, and punish those they hate, that is, normal human beings like you and me. Apologies for going off topic, yet again, but these bustards need to be at least recognised as having reached these positions of power, without hardly anybody noticing. It was less than twenty tears ago, that we could not countenance the idea of a priest sexually abusing a child. In light of that, now proven truth, please at least consider the horrific possibility that a significant minority of the judiciary are indeed psychopaths. Just to be clear, it’s not priests, judges or lawyers that I’m trying to warn people about, It’s psychopaths that are able to lie, blackmail and con people into thinking that they are genuine, when they’re not.

    A well put and useful contribution. I think people underestimate the influence of psychopaths on society. I think those figures you quoted are very conservative,I would say that, in both instances, the figure would be much higher, at least around the 60% mark. The same applies to politicians. Essentially, this world is run by psychopaths for psychopaths and the system which they preside over is inherently psychopathic in nature.

    Very succinctly put Ciaran. You know, I know, and a minority of others do too. Now what?. It took me years to get my head around their existence and it explains so much, but how do you convince the ordinary person of their existence, much less their danger.

    Considering the fact that the vast majority of “ordinary” people are under their spell, it’s hard to know what to do. People have an innate desire to avoid staring at ugly and scary truths. They have been conditioned, to take the easy option and rationalize away blatantly obvious but frightening facts such as the ones you and I are discussing here, as the “crazy” ramblings of “Tinfoil hat wearing kooks” or people with “chips on their shoulders”. Add to this the myriad of other ways in which they are kept dumbed down, distracted and/or in denial and we, and others like us, have our work well and truly cut out for us. Having said that, I do think things are reaching a kind of critical mass where people are finding it harder and harder to bury their heads in the sand and more and more people are waking up.
