When will these corrupt people be made accountable and be severely punished for the Laws, Acts, Etc they broke or are the judges just inept and don't (cannot) relate to real people in the REAL World. Earlier this week I watched a replay of a 4 Corners episode entitled “In the Name of the Law” with new revelations on how the Catholic Church kept the lid on child sex abuse allegations. Yet those perpetrators of those heinous crimes should be found and punished to the fullest extent of the law, instead of the slap on the wrist and the church leaders/judges making an ass of the law.
Then this morning I read that disgraced MP Tim Owen faces the threat of up to 10 years in jail for lying to the NSW corruption watchdog over his shady dealings with property developers. What do they mean by a threat? If the law states 10 years, then he gets 10 years and nothing less - irrespective of who they are! Anything less, then why have a maximum of that length, or is that just for the ordinary person in the street?
Following a distinguished 32-year career in the Royal Australian Air Force (including being the former deputy commander of the Australian forces in Afghanistan & Iraq) - Well maybe he was doing shady deals in the forces but was fortunate not to be caught out. After all if you retired (at his rank) after 32 years service your fortnightly pension wouldn’t be far off $10,000 so why risk your career (with all the perks that go with it for a paltry 10 grand - GREED.
Given that I have been on the unemployment tip for 18 months now - including having completed a five month course, I haven’t robbed or stolen any money off anyone, so I don’t see why people (like him) should be making decisions for my best interests - Sorry (for being the cynic I am) but the majority of those people in high places don’t care about the dregs like me at the bottom of the social ladder…..
Oh well I feel much better now for getting that off my chest
