Attention must be paid to what Willy Loman said about the asinine changes in the works for the Young Offenders Act.
Prosecutors will now have to justify why they are not trying a 14 year old as an adult in a serious offense, not the other way around.
Hell, that's nothing, just wait until Harper get his majority and they get that whole "presumed guilty until proven innocent" thing in place as an efficiency measure.
Logically locking up our youngest offenders instead of focussing on their rehabilitation, while there is still time and better chance for rehabilitation will more likely produce hardened young adults who will have better chance of becoming professional criminals as soon as they are back on the streets, than productive members of society. But that is just too logical.
Unfortunately facts and logic do not exist for the Harper reformatories or if realized, they are just ignored. The main purpose of these draconian changes to our societal laws is to satisfy a rabid narrow base of bible bangers, living in privileged, sheltered rural based cities
In the meantime, you might be interested in this old post of mine. Plus ca change, eh?
