Do the Crime – Serve the Time

  • June 22nd, 2005

Bell was jailed for a non parole period of 33 years. But it took a public outcry after he murdered three people at the Mt Wellington-Panmure RSA for the sentence to be imposed.

He carried out these brutal murders while he was on parole.

He was released on parole after serving only part of a previous sentence for aggravated robbery.

This is yet another example of the inevitable failure in the parole and home detention system.

Labour has pretended to toughen up on law and order but in fact they have reduced the non parole periods so dangerous criminals are being released back into society sooner.

The feeble attempts at supervision allow them to re-offend at will.

The system isn’t working. It is time to look at other solutions.

Its time for truth in sentencing and an end to apologies for punishment.

Its time to abolish parole and introduce mandatory post sentence supervision with random testing.

In this way we can protect innocent victims from criminals on early parole.

The victims deserve better.

The criminals should be given a different message. If you commit the crime, you will do the time.

Give your Party Vote to ACT and we will give them the message.
