  • It's one of those nights where I check through my messages and realise that I've been really slack about replying. #
  • @coffeyn That would make much more sense. An incentive rather than an edict is generally preferable in this type of case. in reply to coffeyn #
  • @coffeyn By the way, I'm planning on burning the next pamphlet I receive from Katy Gallagher, and sending her the video… in reply to coffeyn #
  • @coffeyn … With any luck she'll try to ban pamphlet burning, and failing that, she'll try to ban me from filming pamphlet burning. in reply to coffeyn #
  • It's rare, but always a bit of a thrill to be the first to vote in a poll. Today I cast the first vote in @2CC's poll. #
  • @toddstarnes I had wondered the same thing this morning Todd. At first I thought it was an error in the Drudge iPhone app. in reply to toddstarnes #

Dealing with serious unprovoked physical attacks

An email to 2GB’s Andrew Moore

Good morning Andrew,

For obvious legal reasons I don’t want to talk specifically about the case of the kid who was king hit and killed in Kings Cross, but in general if people are found guilty of such a gutless and unprovoked offence, then I don’t think they are fit to be in society.

In my view, people who commit such types of crimes without provocation simply can not be rehabilitated and should either be locked away forever, or should be king hit by the relatives of the victim. There are some elements of an eye for an eye which I think are appropriate with people who commit this type of offence.

In some ways I wonder if the British had it right back in the day. Find an uninhabited land mass and send the “worst of the worst” there to fend for themselves.

Have a great day Andrew.
