Repeat offenders still getting a leave pass via soft Judiciary

gang member who spent more than 370 days at large after removing his electronic bracelet was arrested on New Year's Eve

reportedly a member of the Crips gang, and had twice breached electronic bail before

WTF?  A gang member and given electronic bail for a third time?

In my view there are no mitigating circumstances at play here.  Firstly a gang member, secondly proven to be a serial absconder.

Gang member?  Forget mitigating factors, lock the bastard up and throw the key away. A holiday on the taxpayer continuing business as usual on an ankle bracelet should not be an option.

Time for the Minister responsible to sort out the Judiciary and then change the law.
