Its really quite simple , its risk vs reward , thats in the real world , however NZ does not live in the real world , the trend has been away from , 1 ) holding people to account for doing wrong , & 2 ) punishing them to a correct level .
And by being too soft on the crims , we are really telling them its OK to do criminal acts .
Look at how things where say 30yrs ago , a crim virtually never struck a Police Officer , EVER , why they actually knew they would be up in front a real Judge the next day ( not next yr ) , and he would sentence the crim to 6mths minimum , end of short story , a known & imediate consciquence .
Now see what happens , the Lawers & Judges put off sentencing for several mths , and when they have maxed out the legal gravy train money , then 6-12 mths latter they hand down a sentence that is as harsh a slap on the wrist with a wet bus ticket .
Yrs ago a old Cop in charge of the Police stn cells , had a jumped up woman Lawyer come to see a prisioner , the Old Cop had the guy handcuffed & chained down in the interview room , he tells her he is very violet and will kill her given 1/2 a chance , see says NO , he is not to be treated like a animal , and abuses the hell out of the Old Cop , at this stage he has had enough .
So he does as the lawyer asks , uncuffs/chains him , & knowing whats about to happen , goes for a smoke outside , takes his time ( he could have stayed outsied the room & been able to respond imediately to trouble/noise etc ) , once he has finished his smoke , comes back inside to see how she is .
Yeap , almost dead , not quite , Old Cop grabs the prisioner puts the cuffs back on him , rings for ambulance .
Guess what , when he next sees her , she is walknig with a permeant limp , and she LISTENs to the Old Cops advise now , and NEVER interviews a prisoner again with out the prisioner being restrained .
Guess she learned how the real world works , instead of her utopia world , as in all things there is a gap between actual & theory .
though i think you mean violent not violet i agree completely
Just to illustate a difference , in NZ you can do somethings , and in say the Philippines those same things are not options at all , so all countries are different in what can or should be done .
Here's a true story , but it serves to show you vast difference in what is needs to be done .
Basically , a guy runs a little shop in a small town in the Philippines , he employs a guy to work in the shop , after a short time he realises the guy is stealing from him , so sacks him , pretty std so far, no dramas you think , there is a consquence for his action .
But he thinks he has been treated unfairly ( he has not , hes just a wrongun ) , so he ambushs his old boss , as he leaves his shop on scooter , shots him in the back of the head a couple of times with a 45acp pistol .
So in short he has committed murder , and everyone in the village knows it , and his name and where he lives , and they do nothing .
The family of the young guy killed , rightly want Justice , But as this is the Philippines , things are vastly different from the developed world , so the options are very different , they go to the police & tell them what has happened , and the name & address of the killer , I can tell you , that the cops will say Yeap thanks for that we will look into it , thats a total lie , what they do is stay seated playing cards ( you are thinking WHY ? , are they doing nothing , because why work when you 1 ) get payed poorly 2 ) can do nothing 3 ) feel if people want them to work they can pay / bribe them to do their actual job 4 ) it maybe a little risky to arrest him ( not too much of a problem as they are heavly armed & have numbers on their side 5 ) it may cause more problems in village ( so they do NOTHING , thats the default for them .
So their are only 3 options available to the family .
1 ) Take the law into their own hands & have either a family member kill him or pay a contract killer to do it ( this is the cheapest option in terms of money spent ) , and its the quickest .
2 ) Do NOTHING , in NZ you are thinking , that this is not Justice , but maybe you can live with IT , actually this is NOT a option EVER in the Philippiines , because what you have just done is tell everyone in the Village they can steal & kill your family members and donot have to worry about the consquences , as there are none , and now more of your family will be killed & robbed , opps .
3 ) Pay the Cops to arrest him , pay the Cops & Polices chief to hold in the cell , then pay Lawyer & Judge to do thier JOB , and once you have him in prision , you pay the Prision Warden to keep him in prision , and even thou you have payed the Police off ( bribe ) , and the Lawyer & the Judge ( bribe ) , you will still be paying the Prision Warden off evry year you want him to stay in prision , thats what happens in the Philippines .
This is not the way Justice should work , but its the real world for people who live in the Philippines & maybe other 3rd world countries , now just to be crystal clear , the Philippines has a LOT of Laws , written as statues/etc , but is let down by the actions of the services agencys that should make the Laws REAL/Work .
Opps , OK , most people in the Philippines are poor , having said that run thru the 3 options I gave you , and pick , what you think happens most often , remember you are poor , evry poor .
Opps , option 3 # is very , very expensive , you are paying off a LOT of people , and as in all things the higher the postion the MORE they want , the Judge gets a whole lot more than say the Cop .
