where's the justice?
Happy Good Friday everybody.
It's a sad fact that the laws are siding with underage criminals. Those underage criminals can even get away after killing someone.
Seven News (Sydney) last night reported that New South Wales is suffering an underage crime wave. There were thousands of serious offences are being committed by children under 10. Those offences include arson, robbery and sexual assault, sadly the offenders are untouchable because of their age.
Stealing cars, committing serious robberies, drug crimes, even sexual offences are not exclusive to adults. Those are adult crimes, and they can never be charged. Under Freedom of Information Act, Seven News obtained government records they don't want people to know. There are about 3,000 cases in a year involving under-10's.
Today's kids often know that they are pretty untouchable at law. They are good at doing whatever they want and read it back to you if you happen to catch them. They aren't charged because the law says they can't be held responsible.
Thanks to Seven News, just in NSW between January and September 2007, there were 522 arsons, 215 break-ins, 295 assaults, 42 sex crimes, 9 car thefts, 38 drugs/alcohol offences. Those were the ones people bothered to report. Many adults know that those evil kids can get away it, most underage crime simply goes unreported.
In 1998, 6-year-old Corey Davis drowned after being pushed into a river at Macquarie Fields. A 10-year-old was charged with manslaughter, but acquitted (free from charge, not guilty)
Kids are evil! The laws got to be changed!
