‘Common sense’ justice
Just a few thoughts as I read the paper or see on TV some of the heinous crimes that are committed each day with no concern or deterrence to such crimes.
Common sense, if you have read past articles, would be swift, just and cheap with guidance from the 10 Commandments.
The police and prosecutors would remain the same, but the results of a common sense court would be the deterrence.
Rape of 15 years or younger, if DNA proves beyond reasonable doubt, would mean castrate the next day and then sentence punishment.
If the crime ends in the death of the victim and DNA proves beyond reasonable doubt, castrate the next day and send to Animals Island Aircraft Carrier to never return to our society.
If, for some reason a person is proved innocent of a vicious crime and they have been sent to Animals Island, they can simply be picked up when food is delivered and returned to be dealt with.
We talk very loosely about killing, rape, kidnapping and other heinous, terrible crimes; however, if it is your wife, sister, daughter or grandchild, it is a much more close to home situation.
Every heinous, vicious crime has such people doing these crimes and they will continue until something is done. We, the people, should have a deterrent method to discourage such crimes with common sense.
The young man who recently killed those people and sat in court and proudly displayed his T-shirt with “Killer” on it was sentenced to life in prison.
This sentence will cost the taxpayer in excess of $50,000 per year. Common sense would house him for 10 cents on the dollar on Animals Island Aircraft Carrier!
Think about it and ask yourself, do we want to do something, or just continue to kick the can down the road?
Be at council meetings
Recently I attended a Sebring city council meeting. The meeting consisted mostly on the focus in which the city had spent $8,000 or so on an election where only 278 people voted.
Being that the number of registered voters were, I believe, 20 times of that who actually voted, then the omission commission seems to be the ruling factor here.
If you were not a relative of one of the candidates or a person working this election, then truly if you voted you were in a minority and an informed community member.
The voice of the people must be heard concerning the discussion and adoption process on items that we think our elected members would have the goodwill of the people at stake.
What I am referring to is the right for a church – any church – to have a lighted sign as to direct someone in need for the services that we all should strive to promote.
We as children grew up singing “This Little Light of Mine.” In Sunday school, we were taught what happened to kings who made decrees against those that were trying to help his people.
There may or may not occur hand writings on the wall, but we as a community must not deny access nor try to tie any hand who is trying to serve those who need to hear the truth in spite of political correctness.
One member asked, “What about those churches that have had signs out for 20 or 30 years? Are you going to ask those churches to take them down?” The answer was, “The policies are there.”
Before we have a decree go forth, I urge the people to wake up, and since we are not active in our elections, be at the hearings! For those who have an ear to hear, listen to what is being placed on our community.
