Mitchell Johnson is released after his part in Jonesboro,Arkansas shootings in 1998. He is released on his 21st birthday because of a loophole after serving only 7yrs for the school shootings which left 4girls and 1 teacher dead,11 others were wounded.

Quote:


Mitchell Johnson, 13, and Andrew Golden, 11, pulled a school fire alarm and fired into the crowd as people filed out of the Westside Middle School, killing four girls and a teacher, and wounding 11 others.





Since 1998 there have been 29 school shootings in the U.S.
62 people have been killed in them.
111 people have been wounded.

Is this justice? Should I even send my kids to school?

The recently released 21yr old expresses remorse and wants to be a minister.

I don't care what age or loophole it was, he needs to go back in for a long time. Let him minister to other criminals.

If he did that where I or Leo comes from, he would have gone for reincarnation by now, assuming he managed to talk his way out of Hell; this talk about wanting to be a minister.

Just have a national consensus in your country that it is necessary to have a national crime policy that recognises extreme measures to deal with extreme anti-social behaviour. Over here, just possessing an unlicenced firearm means life imprisonment.

The next mass-murderer is waiting to strike -- he has calculated his odds; what is 7 years? a blink of an eye, and all paid for by taxpayers.

Prime Minister of UK, Tony Blair, is pushing for tougher laws now; but that is 54 lives too late.

Justice here in the UK is almost non-existent. In my area there was a 21 year old male who killed 2 people. It was pre-meditated and he got sent down for 18 months! If you're caught running your vehicle on vegetable oil, you face up to 7 years in prison... makes no sense. It just shows that taxes and money are more important to our government than the people.

We have a very low record of school shootings and if any, it's usually air guns. this thread is not about guns,let's keep it that way
A fear I may have opened up a can of worms... and await the flaming from the all the gun toting clan.

Before all the gun touting constitutional lawyers / clan set thier sights on you and obliterate your existence leaving a strong smell of cordite behind, please let us have your views, as an obviously law abidding British citizen, on the right of the police to arrest and detain indefinitely without trial a 'suspected terrorist?'

Because this is exactly what we have over here. Incidently, this law was left behind by the British colonial administration when they were here and fighting the communists in the 40s and 50s. Just for the record, this country is the only one in the world which have actually defeated a communist insurgency. Those British soldiers in the SAS Regiment will know all about this.

In every sphere of civilised human endeavour, you have to give something for something.

Nothing is free, not even Freedom.

Sanchin beat me to it, but let's not burn this thread so early with ignorant assumptions about a country you don't even live in.
