Tough on crime ?

After over a week following my computer crashing I have been subject to considerable depression with the constant and regular accounts in the media that show exactly how tough on crime this government really is. Not only do the persistent offenders appear to get next to no meaningful sentences, they also appear about to be released back out onto the streets, back into the community, again to continue to re-offend. To make room for even more offenders. What's more, some of them are to be paid handsomely for the privilege. Trust me on this, it is a real privilege and they seem to constantly abuse this freedom of liberty by making the lives of far too many decent, law-abiding miserable with their thieving antics, namely offending. This Government clearly believe that if they are non-violent then everything is OK. Another sign as to who in this country has the rights.

Yes, but then there is always the old 'contaminated heroin' outbreak which evens up the score every few years. Take heart from that? I know I do.

Will there be any detected crimes to be had out of such an unexpectedly 'pure' batch ? I thought they just kept cutting it with all sorts of crap to try to finance their own personal disaster before boosting the crime figures somewhere. How inconsiderate.
