    Murderers,rapists, robbers and other rabble on the run....

    More than 5,000 suspected criminals are on the run after failing to answer their bail and attend court hearings in London.

    Police are hunting at least 1,000 wanted for the most serious offences, including murder, **** and robbery.

    Some may have fled overseas while others are still in London or hiding elsewhere in Britain.

    The fugitives include four people charged with murder, 91 with robbery, 54 with **** and hundreds accused of violent crimes and drug offences.

    More than 90 are wanted in connection with knife crime. Four have been charged with indecency with a child, while seven are accused of making indecent images of children..........

    I wonder if this is what Ken Clarke had in mind when he said he was going to throw less people in the slammer? This smacks of an old tory policy where they closed down mental hospitals and introduced care in the community programmes, putting the public at risk from seriously mentally ill folk. Now its paedos, killers etc . I though labour were clueless when it came to fighting crime - the tories are carrying on where they left off. If you listen closely you can still hear the old cry of " tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime"? it really does sound familiar doesnt it?

    Why didn't you paste the rest of the article? Because when one reads it, your assessment makes no sense at all. This has nothing to do with Ken Clarks proposed policies on sentencing.
    Given that it's safe to assume that many of these alledged offenders have served time before, being repeat offenders, it would suggest that prison is not the holiday camp that the right like to make it out to be. If prison or other forms of punishment for crime is so soft, why would they bother to breach bail orders etc? Doesn't make any sense.
    Which ever side of politics one is on, there's no denying that the prison system in the UK has failed. Making it a tougher regime won't do any good. In the 1970's and 80's British prisons had some of the harshest and most squalid conditions in Europe, prison riots were rife, we had the highest suidice rates in prisons in Europe (while the scandal of not reporting attempted suicides kept the true picture from the public, and still remains to this day), re offending rates were ever rising, moral amongst prirson staff was at an all time low.
    Apart from the worst types of offenders who do not deserve to be free, the object of prison should be two fold. To punish and to rehabilitate. Without rehabilitation the prison system doesn't serve those who pay for it, who are the victims of crime.
    Ken Clarks proposals, if done properly are both courageous and long overdue.

    What this article highlites is the ineffectiveness of the police, the CPS and the probabtion services.

    .

    This has everything to do with his sentencing guidelines and his assumption that prison numbers have to be reduced because they unaffordable. Do you honestly believe that the condem coalition will stop this farce?
