Doggie Thought For The Day

 

Wisdom from a dog. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if our world leaders heeded this advice?  Not just them but neighborhood disputes, road rage, and any other type of rage that is not earth shattering. Sitting down and thinking about things before any knee-jerk reaction has to better.

English: Join the movement to end child abuse:...

On a completely opposite track, I believe that sometimes rage is justified. When you see parents, family, friends of murdered victims not receive the type of justice they should. They live with that crime and their loss, all their lives. Yet the criminals seem to be out in no time. The law doesn’t seem able to punish the offenders of these crimes in a way that makes them atone for what they did.

Then there are the victims of  crime like rape, child abuse, and domestic violence. The law doesn’t appear to have much sympathy for them. Sometimes the victims are treated like criminals, instead of the real criminal.There are always excuses put forward by the criminal’s defense council as to why the perpetrator committed the crime. They weren’t breast-fed as a baby, or they came from a deprived background, and so on. However, there have been many people in those exact same circumstances who didn’t go out and commit crimes. It was their choice in either scenario.

Some time ago there was a riot in one of our jails and they smashed pool tables, television sets, computers, and burned bedding and books etc. We, the taxpayer, had to pay to have all the damaged goods replaced. I ask myself why? Why not leave them like that? When will they ever have to live with the results of their actions? If no one ever makes them accountable, when will they ever learn that for every action there is a reaction.

    Ditto, ditto, ditto. Yes, leave them like that. These criminals don’t deserve luxuries that we have to pay for.

    Btw, the doggie photo says it perfectly.

    How true this is! My hubby was assaulted about 20 years ago and as a result lost his left eye. His attacker had done this type of random attack before, yet none of his history was mentioned in court. He was sentenced to eight years jail but only spent nine months there and then ‘home detention’ at which time the government found him a job! Meanwhile, hubby was completely ignored and had to learn to survive and work on his own. This subject is very close to my heart…

      Hi Dianne, I had written a reply to you and then it disappeared, so if you get this twice you will know I am not going senile. 🙂

      I hate what happened to your husband and your family, that is so wrong. Something has to be done about these type of situations. Criminals have to learn to accept responsibilty for their actions. The courts and the laws need a big shake up. They do not reflect the will of the people. I think a lot of it is to do with the fact that the jails are so overcrowded so they try not to put more people in.

      cheers Judy

        Thanks Judy. A lot of people get so angry and frustrated about the amount of violence we have because the criminal is always treated better by the government than the victims. The example you gave about the prisoners running riot is a perfect example – everything will get fixed (at our expense) and they’ll get a fairy slap on the wrist. Our local prison is currently looking into giving the prisoners free syringes (because they can’t stop the drugs from coming in) and most of the people in this prison are there for drug related crimes! Go figure…

        It’s just disgusting in my opinion. Not enough punishment for the crimes. 🙂

    This is such a great post and a very important topic. It gets me so angry how the criminals are treated better in most instances then the victims. For example, I live in an area close enough to Penn State where that horrible and tragic event has been front and center news. Yes people still say such wonderful things about Joe Paterno since he is looked on as a “God” even though he knew these heinous acts were going on.

    It is just horrendous and I hope something could be done in our Criminal Justice System where these criminals are given such luxuries at our expense.

    Thanks for reading and checking out my blog. If it wasn’t for that, I wouldn’t have come across this wonderful blog.

    I agree that there is a lack of *thinking* going on, and far too much angry reaction without forethought. Actions should have consequences – consequences that *stick*. Good post.

    This is when we get angry enough to do something to fix the problems and fight for victims rights. Criminals need to pay for their actions and if they are willing I am all for teaching them a trade and help them to get back on their feet, BUT victims have rights that are being ignored, I think it is high time we start putting things in perspective, care of the victim and punish the criminal.
    And on a lighter note, yes the picture of pups is enough to warm our hearts – and grin as we can all think of people to “sit on”! Bless you
