Joy Burch is making sure we all know that her After Hours Bail Support Service is keeping young scrotes out of Bimberi:

Ms Burch said an internal evaluation of the new program showed it had helped divert 21 young persons from custody between November 2011 and April 2012, and the number of short-term remand episodes (1-4 days) had fallen from 82 to 71 when compared with the same period the previous year.

“The early indications are that the After Hours Bail Support Service is succeeding in its objective, which is to reduce the incidence of young people being remanded in custody for short periods until the necessary arrangements can be made for them to be granted bail,” Ms Burch said.

Overall, the After Hours Bail Support Service was contacted on 270 matters relating to 84 different young people between November and April.

84 young people needing 270 matters eh? That’s some repeat service going on.

Aren’t you glad they’ve been kept in the community?

Dont bother calling the police – they are only there to make money and coverup the loss of income of their victim! Besides if your male you should enjoy being beaten so you need surgery after visiting the failed Emergency system where kates social network decides what to put in your file.

If your a violent drunk junkie pensioner you get out by 10am the next day, and by 11am you can be delivering death threats to the young person you bashed the night before. When the case goes to court, the victim wont because the death threats have already been made (and recorded).
