Re: “We need more police on the streets,” Letters, The Leader.
As a retired police inspector with 24 years service, I know that in 99.9 per cent of crimes committed, the police are nowhere to be seen, especially domestic crimes.
What we really need is: “You do the crime, you do the time.” No parole, no time off for good behaviour. No day-pass, no phone calls, no TV. No conjugal visits.
When you commit the crime, you give up all your rights – and “life” should be 50 years.
