I agree with you, what I believe the petition is for is to prevent any repetition in future.Whilst I agree, at the risk of sounding argumentative, I believe the killers of pc Harper were convicted of manslaughter therefore this would not impact on their case. This petition really calls for a change in the entire legal definitions used for what considered murder vs manslaughter. Or an overhaul of the system of sentencing for manslaughter. Neither of which will happen
And a whole of life tarif is different again to a life sentence (which has a minimum tarif set when parole can be considered then once released the prisoner remains under supervision of the probation service with the possibility recall to prison for any further breach of the law)
I believe in certain circles, the CPS (Crown Prosecution Service) is known as the Criminal Protection Service!The Laws of this Country are supposed to protect the general law-abiding population, but you would be mistaken for thinking it’s there to protect the criminal at times
unfortunately it seems to be in most circles that it's true! i think there are tens/dozens of charities & organisations to help criminals with most 'rehabilitation' strategies, housing, employment, general help after committing offences - but apparently there is only one 'victim support' group - if it's true it sums us up in the UK really doesn't it?!I believe in certain circles, the CPS (Crown Prosecution Service) is known as the Criminal Protection Service!
