'Protection Agencies'

A couple of stories I read in the papers over the last couple of days, were about policy proposals, one from the Conservatives and the other from Labour. I can’t remember which was from which, but that’s pretty much irrelevant when they’re one and the same anyway with policies that are interchangeable. Both ideas concerned Law and Order. The first was about the public voting on the punishment for criminals, and the second was to stop arresting have a go heroes.
What does this tell us, that both major parties have no faith in the British Justice system as it stands at the moment and that they’re thinking about devolving power to the people, who have also lost faith in it, some of whom don’t know the difference between a paediatrician and a paedophile. Sounds like a step towards state sanctioned street justice to me with the potential for abuse, kangaroo courts and private armies made up of ex-servicemen anyone?

The thin edge of the wedge was reached a few years ago. Now it’s a slow burn mission creep into total (Paranoid) state control. Twenty five years ago people would be out on the streets peacefully protesting against all these new intrusive laws. Now they don’t seem to care - The plasma TV effect I guess. It’s sad.

As for offenders wearing florescent jackets. They will quickly be turned into some form of badge of honour just like ASBO’s were. ‘Edgy’ high street fashion chains will be selling them within a year.

Tackling abusive youths on the street? Don’t make me laugh. History is full of dead forty- something men who decided to challenge bad behaviour.
