Why the Justice Party?
In Australia, in recent years, it has seemed that magistrates and judges are, increasingly, dangerously, more concerned with the welfare of convicted criminals than they are about their victims. We believe the punishment should fit the crime.
Under community pressure, politicians have increased maximum sentences for some violent crimes but they are rarely imposed. Even minimum sentences are not honoured. And suspended sentences, early parole and name suppression constitute a sick joke.
If our bail, parole, AVOs and supervision orders were tightened, victims like Jill Meagher, Daniel Morcombe, Masa Vukotic, Sarah Cafferkey, Fiona Warzywoda, Sharon Siermans, Luke Batty, Tori Johnson, Katrina Dawson and Karen Chetcuti might still be alive.
Like Peter Finch's character in Network members of the Justice Party are saying: 'I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!'
