Lesson on what not to do on Twitter

Wednesday, April 16, 2014 by Island Dog | Discussion: Life, the Universe and Everything

Yeah, it's not very wise to tweet terrorist threats to an airline on Twitter. The Dutch girl ended up being arrested for this.

Quoting smeagolheart, reply 37And what do you see when an innocent person gets released from jail after 19 years in prison on some fake charges and is completely exonerated? Someone who should have been executed before those pesky facts got out?

Rare as rocking horse shit...whereas repeat offenders...paedophiles, rapists, murderers are a dime a dozen....

There have been several recent cases of innocent people being released from prison after prolonged incarceration.  Had the death penalty been an option in those cases, several innocent people would now be dead.  Now, Paul, a few years ago I would have agreed with you regarding the death penalty, and that perhaps a few mistakes were acceptable collateral damage to ensure we got the guilty.  However, the justice system is supposed to protect the innocent, and a handful of 'mistakes' is not acceptable in our quest to combat crime, violent or otherwise.

That's why I proposed long prison terms without parole for murderers, rapists and paedophiles... because if it is proven later that they are in fact innocent, the penalty is not finite... irreversible.

and a handful of 'mistakes'

EVERY recent murder and rape in Oz has been at the hands of repeat offenders...mostly on parole...or simply in contravention of an AVO.

REAL mistakes happen daily.

Most recent...today... sex offender slips his bracelet in Sydney an is found a day and a half later in the town where the offence took place.

Yes, shit happens....but too much is happening for the system to even pretend to be 'working'....

Which is why I advocate NO parole.  If somebody is sentenced to 25 - 30 years, then that is the term of their sentence.... no time off for time already served [prior to and during the court case], no time off for good behaviour.... NO time off at all.  Period!  And for proven sex offenders, repeat or otherwise.... chemical castration, no ifs, buts or maybes.

Yes, shit happens....but too much is happening for the system to even pretend to be 'working'...

The system would work a lot better if there weren't too many fechen do-gooders lobbying for prisoners rights... not to mention the dipshits who are supposedly running the criminal justice system... those who turned prisons into fechen holiday camps/a home away from home.  For mine, prisons would be more like medieval dungeons with no creature comforts whatsoever... because they're there to be punished, not live a life of luxury behind bars  Oh, and hard labour would be a an extra provision for the worst of the worse.... like 10 - 12 hours a day of breaking rocks or something equally demanding.  Yup, that oughta keep 'em too tired to cause any trouble

I have no respect whatsoever for rapists, kiddiemolesters and other such monsters. The death penalty however, due to the chance of a mistake, is off... I'd much prefer lifelong imprisoment with eight hours of community service every day ( digging trenches, cutting down trees, breaking rocks, you know, the usual) and a more severe variant of the ankle-belt to keep em in check ( one around each ankle, one around each wrist, and one around the neck... if you take any of em off, the rest goes kaboom...step over the line... kaboom).

Oh, and castration. With two bricks.

Nope, it wouldn't.... but give girls who have been victims of sex crimes two bricks.  Let them remove the offending gonads.

As for female offenders/villains, they should get the going rate for males when it comes to sentencing, with no leniency for the 'fairer' sex.  Some of the most heinous in history have been women... or facsimilies thereof, like my 1st ex, for example.  Now there's somebody who belongs behind bars, but who had the luck to get away scot free every time.

Though it seems they have taken down the images where she says she is a white girl though, that was funny.

One day, mankind will invent a cure for stupidity.... it will fix world hunger, all wars and a very large amount of diseases.

That cure has been around for a while... it's just that the wowsers object to firing squads outside the military.

The cure exists. Its just that no one is capable of seeing it for what it is......unless you're an old fart like us.

@Starkers: your first wife was a facsimile?     @everyone: Seriously, though, most criminal justice systems in Western nations are still vacillating between two very distinct intended outcomes of 'justice.'  De week want/seek punishment or rehabilitation.  Which do we want?  Do we want to punish the offender, or do we want to remold the offender into a viable member of civil society?  Both goals are intermixed together in most Western systems.  And its a dicey mix, IMHO.

@Starkers: your first wife was a facsimile?

Yup, she was a facsimilie of a woman, a fake; not genuine; an imposter; a throwback to something Dark-Ages and evil; a warted crone with a UI so hideous it'd scare Satan himself.  Orright, maybe not quite that bad, but I have no good memories of her cos all the bad ones, of which there are many, supercede and outweigh them to the point where they simply don't exist.

Anyway, enough about her... I haven't eaten dinner yet.

In this case, does this mean she should have to watch all of Duck Dynasty followed by every Toby Keith album in one sitting as her punishment?

Sounds more like a reward - given the typical proclivities of the hoi poli. (masses)
