Kill them, that’ll teach them a lesson… not one that they can apply to a life-type situation, but a lesson nonetheless.
I jest, obviously I’m against killing anyone, for pretty much any reason, and it is one of the things that I’m most proud of in my country that we do not observe such a barbaric and pointless ritual sacrifice to voters.
However, we do have our own law dilemma – how long can we hold someone without charging them?
Currently we have the 28 day limit in which to hold someone before charging them with a crime, but some politicians wish to raise that to 42 days, because, well… they haven’t really given a convincing argument why we need that yet, but stay tuned, they might conjure something up.
So why do they need to extend what is already one of the longest durations for detention without charge in the world? – In the US it’s 2 days!.. but then again, you’ve got Guantanamo Bay, right? – Apparently, it will make us safer.
That’s right, safer by 14 days. At last someone has developed a reliable scale for rating safety, The Day Scale.
Juggling with plastic knives rather than steel ones carries a 20 day safety rating, perhaps the government would like to consider that instead?
