Crims can still make profits

By ajstern - 6 August 2007 1

I noticed in the ABC this weekend that “The ACT Government has rejected calls for a change in the law to prevent criminals convicted in Canberra selling their stories for cash”

It looks like the Libs want new legislation that will halt profits of crime thus making it illegal for people convicted of crimes to sell or attempt to sell their story. Apparently the ACT doesn’t have this yet; Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania all do. Simon Corbell reckons that the existing laws have enough protection.

What’s Your opinion?

What about other people making money off crims? Surely that’s just as bad?

Throw Syndey Nolan in the slammer, I reckon, for making money off the glorification of that irish thug and criminal Ned Kelly.
