Be weary weary quiet were hunting paedophiles… ehehehehe
The home of a convicted rapist was burnt to the ground on Thursday, as the towns folk watched on. Beers in hand the crowd cheered as the home of Terrence Allan Ellis was reduced to smouldering rubble. Terrence Allan Ellis was recently sentenced to 3 and a half years jail after raping a young woman from the town..
I am not by any stretch of the imagination a paedophile sympathiser, nor am I so heartless to assume that a crime of this magnitude would not shock a town to its core. However taking justice into ones own hands is were I take stock.
“grab your pitch forks and torches, kill the ogre” have we really taken this step backwards towards cavorting druids, living in caves and dung for dinner.
I do not always agree with the sentencing in this country, it is not always appropriate to the crime, white collar crime theft of millions is a slap on the wrist, john lunch pale who holds up a petrol station to pay his bills spent life behind bars. Our justice system does need an overhaul, but we must remain calm think things through, act on good information not out of fear.
Our prison systems serve three purposes, firstly to deter, secondly to punish and thirdly to reform, what chance will a convict have of reform with no home to return too, no hope for his/ her release.
On a final note, it is funny to watch a media organization after something like this, a group which has fuel fear and hate of sex offenders, making us feel like they are around every corner lurking to steal our children. The pump the masses full of fear and hate and then wash their hands when a tragedy happens. This was apparent with a Cronulla race riots, every day pumped full of fear about Arabs, Muslims and asylum seekers, then people get scared, then angry people get hurt and killed, the media says it’s a shame.
