..running around with your "fingers up your ass" on lenient sentencing.
Now unless media commentators are completely stupid and ignorant...then the first paragraph applies.
Theye are pretending to "scratch their heads" and to wonder what the hell is going on, for appearances sake when they know full well that lenient sentencing/parole conditions has a strong link to State budgetary considerations.
I'd have a guess and say that it is the only link to this problem.
In the case of stupidity on the part of these media commentators it must be pointed out that it costs the NSW State budget thousands of dollars per annum per capita to incarcerate and keep a criminal...a prohibitive cost as compared to the present budgetary requirements.
To put it simply. Governments cannot afford to incarcerate every criminal.
So logically they must have developed a policy whereby a lenient policy is practiced on "soft crime"...to put it simply.... using the parole system and/or the courts not to incarcerate these criminals but to release them in the community perhaps under the guise that they will not re-offend and under some sort of supervision.
On "hard crime" (e.g. rape, child abuse, murder) there is a different policy.However even on this policy budgetary considerations have come into play. If, as it seems, there is the slightest hint that a hard criminal will not re-offend then s/he too will be released under the same conditions as those who committed "soft crime"
And there is your problem...in a nutshell!

That and the 'feely good' attitude of so many bleeding hearts that want to give every criminal the chance to reform.

Where minor crime is concerned or non violent crimes, this is a good thing but where there have been multiple rapes and or murders then it's time for termination.

Seeing you are interested Roderick I tell ya how it works. You ain't never gonna get this from any media commentators or the NSW Government.
A first time offender of a murder is sentenced to say the maximum by the court...say for argument's sake 30 years.
The political calculators come out and figure out "Hey if we keep this criminal for that period it's gonna cost a bundle....approx 3 million dollars per criminal. Aha idea! after the appeals procedures are over then at some time a parole hearing is held. A one time offender may be found not to re-offend if released in the community. So instead of doing a 30 year stretch...s/he may do due to parole perhaps 7 to 10 years.....saving the government a 20 year upkeep of the criminal.
Now here is the catch. If s/he re-offends...which means another murder....and depending on the way the community reacts, the process starts all over again. Blah blah blah...s/he was out on parole blah blah blah. Once again the s/he (when s/he is caught that is....s/he may never be caught) will be given another stretch by the court.
But guess what...a parole hearing will eventually come up....and once again ...this time a two-time offender may be once again found not likely to re-offend. Or will s/he?
Of course as the political confidence tricks continue, it greatly depends on the reaction of the community. The dumber they are the longer the tricks will continue......all in the name of budgetary constraints
