The evil within

Dear Peg and Family,
We harbour within our society many evil people, they spend most of their free time doing harm, and we do very little about their presence. Every week we read about yet another savage murder, or crime where some depraved soul has attacked someone weaker than themselves. For many of the robberies, often gains them very little, and when measure against the damage caused in the execution you wonder why they bother. In the case of their woman victims, this is after they have probably violated the woman. Sometimes after this, they then set about to mutilate her body. I have to ask where did we go wrong in raising these monsters? No matter what the crime, we always have the apologists and liberals popping out of the woodwork, and are prepared to excuse any behaviour.
What is wrong that we allow this situation to continue? Is it because there is no such thing these days as punishment for any crime. A wack with a cane at school these days is out too. To day, we are expected to reason with the youth of today. How do you reason with a youth who knows it all? The heights of stupidity was reached when Parliament passed an anti smacking law. Where do all these  wimps come from, that end up making our laws. Murder, mayhem, assault, battery, robbery all seem to be acceptable, but all this has no effect on this new generation. Should they get caught, a whole aid and denial programme, swings into action to help the perpetrator. And the victim? Glad you mentioned him or her. If he or she is no already dead, too bad they were in the wrong place at the wrong time. These folk seem to be the forgotten ones.
Mix any of the above with alcohol and you have a deadly mix. What’s more you can always blame your behaviour on the booze. Therefor it’s excused. Drugs are also too easy to obtain, many of the young seem to think it‘s smart to binge drink until they are wasted. Little do they realise that alcohol is addictive and once hooked, they will no longer have control of their lives. Am I an expert in this matter? No I’m not, but have watched what happened to many of my service companions over the eighty years of heavy drinking. It always seemed to be the families that suffered. Plenty of money for alcohol but not for the necessities of life, never enough. So drink on youth, you will all find out the hard way.
We need to look at punishment to see if that can be brought line again. something that has been missing is starting the lessons early. Reinstate the smack on the backside slap again. No need to beat the child to death, as some are already doing. Regarding other punishments, anyone caught selling drugs would stand the chance of loosing their capital, home, or anything else purchased with the proceeds from the sale of misery. Sentences handed out by the courts remain and no one fiddles with the result or reduces the original term. Life means life. As far as someone nearing the end of their sentence I favour the system of locking the prisoner only for the weekends. Punishment will be the subject of a another letter.
