But that is understandable with our Criminal centred offender friendly legal process.
He killed a defenceless woman and injured two others yet he is likely to be released just three months after being sentenced, see story here.
And that says the Sensible Sentencing Trust makes a mockery of anything that has the audacity to call itself a Justice System.
Just the thought of this killer being released has horrified the family of Sara Niethe who was brutally murdered by Mark Edward Pakenham, a crime he was sentenced for in the Hamilton Court only last month.
Trust Spokesman, Garth McVicar said the fact a killer could be released just three months after being sentenced for a brutal killing ridiculed the victim and her family. “Anyone working within a system that condones this pathetic behaviour should hang their head in shame.”
“Surely anyone working in this system must see the connection between NZ’s exorbitantly high crime rate and the Criminal centred-offender friendly legal process that puts criminals before Victims.”
“AS the Minister of Justice says, Crime is a choice and prison is entirely voluntary, and it is no wonder we have so many people volunteering to go to prison when life is so cheap.”
“For a country that prides itself as being a caring compassionate nation it seems we have things very much back the front with a crime rate to match our attitude.”
Mr McVicar said on top of pathetic sentences such as this the fact that the office of Human Rights is paying a convicted paedophiles legal expenses while his victims are refused any financial assistance paints a very dismal picture for a country that used to be the safest in the Western world.
