It is official. The Legal system has completely lost it. I use the description "Legal" and not "Justice" for a reason. We do not have a justice system in this country. Despite what politicians and the legal community would like you to believe. The last straw for me came last week. A man (and I use that term loosely) kicked a 16 year old boy in the jaw. The boy had to have his mouth wired shut for 6 weeks. The brilliant legal mind in charge of sentencing this "person" decreed that the man should be given house arrest. Okay. Here is the insane part. The man may leave the home any time as long as he calls his parole officer to tell him he is leaving and he MUST TAKE HIS BABY SISTER WITH HIM WHEN HE GOES OUT. WTF?!?!?!? I may have this wrong but my understanding is this man may go anywhere within two kilometers of his house at any time as long as his 18 month old sister is with him. What kind of sentence is that? First it isn't even a sentence if he is free to come and go as he pleases. Second, where the hell is the child protection agency in all this? What kind of situation is this moron going to put his sister in? He can go and kick the shit out of someone but as long as his sister is there it is ok? The judge claims this will foster some sort of family responsibility in the man. From what I read, when the original assault took place, the pregnant mother stood by and watched the attack. Oh goody. That is just the type of family responsibility we as a society want. Where oh where did we go wrong? What has happened to our legal system? Where is the punishment for the attack? Where is the responsibility. Perhaps this man should have been taught to show society some responsibility. I am thoroughly disgusted with this. I have said it before and I will say it again. Maybe judges should be elected and not appointed. Maybe then they will have to have some sort of accountability to the society they are supposed to serve. At least someone in authority is questioning this.
