This hot on the back of indigenous representation in our judicial system and an appeal following a burglary.
Sunday times brings us an article which everyone pretty much knew was the case anyway.
They bring to light that a small percentage of crooks are responsible for an estimated 90% of Canberras Crime. They also report $11 million worth of goods was stolen from burglaries last year.
This begs the question – how many times does this sort of information need to be put out there before:
A – People start to put pressure on Polititians
B – Politicians legislate for harsher penalties and better rehabilitation systems
C – Magistrates and Judges actually represent the peoples views and lock some of these people up for a really long time. (bear in mind Burglary has a max penalty of 14yrs)
