A row over putting a tunnel next to Stone Henge to help cure the horrific traffic is hardly horrendous. Disappointing pile of stones anyway given how far away you have to be from them, almost as disappointing in the flesh as the Mona Lisa. Fascinating construction granted but it’s no Pont to Gard.
That’s an odd comparison, Stonehenge is twice as far from the Pont du Gard in time as we are from the Pont to Gard. You could say the Pont du Gard is no International Space Station , which would be a similarly odd comparison!
Anyway, yeah the A303 is a nightmare, but I have feeling we’ll still talking about schemes to solve that in 25 years time.
Yes, you’re right it maybe is an odd comparison in terms of time but the tech was the same or at least similar. Like the pyramids, just people and time. ISS is a function of massive recent (comparatively) technical advancement. My point is that Stonehenge is now literally a pile of stones in a field. What they stand for and where they came from is incredible but as a site to see, not exactly a stunner.
Well, that’s where the full life terms come into play. This parole hearing is actually regarding the child porn offences rather than the murder. However, the linking factor appears to be a complete lack of empathy.
I’m assuming that he was freed on licence originally? That can be recalled at any time but this does sound as if there is a high chance of reoffending.
I scanned the article. 8 years in jail then freed for the original crime.
Then in 2010 more offenses, and a further 3 years in jail.
Then in 2017 more offenses, and a further 40 months in jail.
At some point, enough is enough.
How much money and time is he taking up, for a system that is presumably overwhelmed?
I am all for rehabilitation. Punish someone for their crimes by removing their freedom, yes. And then do your utmost to provide the services they need to help them rehabilitate. I’m on board with all that. It is right and civilized.
But there has to be a limit, as if the person won’t demonstrate that they have been rehabilitated, after having so much invested in them to help them get there, then my view is full life imprisonment is warranted.
