Crime and Criminality

leave a comment »

Of course, the full facts aren’t known yet. But this assault case has echoes of racism.

I’m sure a comment like ‘I’m going to fucking kill you black bitch’ would have rendered such an attack racially motivated. So why is it ‘I’m going to fucking kill you white bitch’ isn’t?

It’s time the law was applied equally; not just in this case; not just in racist attacks; but when a benefits defrauder is treated differently to an MP that fiddles their expenses; when a rioter is given a more severe sentence than might be expected normally for the same offence; when a crime against profits is treated more severely than a crime against the person.

And especially when crime is always seen as the evil within a person rather than the evil within an unjust society.
