Our society will never rid ourselves of our youth crime problem if this government’s answer is now introducing well-being boards
A teenager who raped four fifteen year old girls and sexually violated another has been sentenced to just nine months home detention.
I wonder if he is going to go in front of the “social well-being board” as part of the governments new youth crime strategy to get his hug and wrap around support.
Our society will never rid ourselves of our youth crime problem if this government’s answer is now introducing well-being boards, social support, and wrap around services for youth criminals and nothing to do with justice, accountability, or serious consequences.
The starting point for this crime is years in prison - especially when the rapist was assessed as a medium chance of reoffending and still minimising his actions - yet he gets a few months home detention.
Five woman have had their lives ruined and our justice system provides no sense of justice or accountability either to them or their parents who have to face long term agonising financial and emotional costs.
For those who want to defend this teen and his sentence - what if it was your daughter?
It's time we bring back experience to government.
