Why,is the police service so impotent,regarding the prevention and detection of crime? It seems to me that the criminal can do whatever he/she wants,these days.
Murder is commonplace,mugging and beating up of anyone,but particularly the old and defenceless. Why, when the police have all the advantages of modern technology can't they overcome the present crime wave?
In the old days,criminals were afraid of law and order,because the police had the upper hand and respectable citizens were safe to live their lives without fear.
The judiciary were ruthless in sentencing criminals and always passed the death sentence for murder, but now the law encourages it by giving lenient punishment.
Have they all gone soft? are they all afraid,or what? lets get tough again and send the right message to the wrong doer. In the old days you knew that if you were involved in murder, you had a good chance of being hung and it was a deterrent!!!
