YOUTH CRIMINAL JUSTICE ACT... DEC 15TH,2013


YOUTH CRIMINAL JUSTICE ACT... DEC 15TH,2013
By
JAMES BREDIN

The names of young criminals can't be published so you can’t condemn,
In a Canadian neighbourhood, this could mean all kinds of mayhem,
But politicians thought the Youth Criminal Justice Act was great,
Lots of politically correct ideas and not much public debate.


A symptom of the influence of our aristocrats at the time,
Add that to the already soft court system - easy on crime,
Then our appointed Supreme Court banned euthanasia forever,
No discussion, no debate and they all thought it was quite clever.


We need death-with-dignity and binding-referendums for all,
Sanity in the judicial system so we don’t have to crawl,
Not pompous politically correct activists with statistics,
Where ordinary folk without referendums are skeptics.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
