Govt rules out offering prison amnesties

Govt rules out offering prison amnestiesThe Government is ruling out offering some prisoners amnesties to ease pressure on overcrowded prisons. Chief Justice Dame Sian Elias floated the prospect of prisoners being ordered free, NZ Herald Politics]

The Chief Judge should keep her busy-body meddling suggestions to herself. It is her job to ensure the crims get a fair hearing and nothing more.

If we have to create barbed wire surrounded tent compounds to lock up our criminals then so be it. If you don’t like overcrowding in prison don’t do the crime. Simple!

So simple yet a meddling socialist judge thinks the solution is to let the crims off scot free.

She is wrong.
