Someone just posted this on a web forum I follow:
Just recently a convicted serial rapist was stopped from being sent back to his own country after serving his prison term as it would breach his right to a family life under the Human Rights Act as decided by the Judge involved.
A victim of one of the rapists many rapes was clearly upset and went on TV and said what about the right of the victims to a family life as the rapist had damaged many families?
Now normally one would imagine judges and lawyers who are involved in cases aren’t liable to be sued if someone who they defend/let off harms someone after but since the Human Rights Act is now often seen as the Human Wrongs Act as only seems to protect criminals and the circumstances have now changed so much in favour of rapists, etc should lawers and judges now be liable if say the serial rapist rapes again in this country?
What the hell do you say in response to something like that? I rather unhelpfully fired off an angry, sarcastic and slightly abusive response. Obviously that’s what NOT to do. But what can you say to a question like that? Suggestions?
