ATTACKS ON ELDERLY / DISABLED - Carers UK Forum

ATTACKS ON ELDERLY / DISABLED

Share information, support and advice on all aspects of caring.
As a carer not only do we do the everday things we also offer security to many vulnerable elderly relatives.
However today the government have announced through the sentencing guideline committee that if an elderly /disable person is targeted and attacked at home they should look at the criminals background they go on to say if he / she is a drug addict or abusing alcohol or may even be deep in poverty prison may not be the answer and they reccomend community service .
Is the government giving a green light to attacks on the elderly ? just what is going on .

That's dreadful George, where did you read that?
I remember reading that drug addicts etc wouldn't be made to go to work, they could remain on sickness benefit.
It just seems all back to front doesn't it?
The worse you behave the more help you get, the better you behave the less help you get.

This must be where we are all going wrong. We are just to nice!

B.B.C. NEWSPAPER REVIEW.
looks as though it is

i can see it coming burglar steels from frail old lady - he is sentenced to community service and he starts work as a carer for a nice old lady just round the corner from where he lives nice job if you can get it .

if you do the crime do the time .

GEORGE= first time in years got council tax bill and its right not one mistake all bemefits and allowances off i can live with £15 a month.
None of the MPs of today have any idea what it is like to live like your average man or woman, they continue to give criminals all the help they need, they even pay them wages whilst in prison, they give them TVs, playstations, gymnasiums, access to as many drugs as they want, mobile phones, they need to make prison harder, not make it more difficult to put criminals inside, criminals should fear going into prison not look forward to it.?

The people in our society that should be rewarded are the pensioners, the disabled, the sick, the service men and women who have surved their country, the carers.
The reason why our servicemen and women are not taken care of properly is because none of the present government have ever served in the forces, how can you have a government sending people to war who have no idea what it is like to fight for ones country? They find it easy enough to send our men and women to their deaths, make them go into battle without the correct equipment, whatever people say about the Americans one thing is for sure, they take care of their service men and women.

We now have have complete idiots running our country, soon Gordon Brown will be giving jobs in the cabinet to convicted criminals to help them solve the problems of crime, never mind we all have the BUDGET to look forward too, i wonder which group the chancellor is going to attack with more taxes, obviously it will be more taxes on the working family man or woman, you bet your bottom dollar it wont be the big bosses or the greedy MPs with their noses in the trough, the sooner New Labour is voted out of power the better, surely the other lot cannot do any worse?
Maybe what we need is a REVOLUTION ???

Hi
Don't pay your council tax and they can find space in a prison for OAP's.
Go and Murder someone as a Police officer did in local area he gets bail then murdered someone else and killed himself.
So commit crimes like murder rape muggins and get bail then a light sentence or community work don't pay local taxes or cheat on benefits and get prison.
There is no deterrents to stop people committing these crimes.
When there was Hanging and the Birch there was a reason not to commit crimes you knew if you got caught you would have to pay the price now two fingers up to society and they know they will get away with it.

Tony Mad Mad Mad Mad
Yes, Tony a GREEN revolution Image Image Image Image By the way, why are there no green smilies??? This board has been taken over by little yellow smilies, must be a communist plot Image
I thought the Communist's were Red Perhaps it's the Lib-Dem's Smiles's
No, not a green REVOLUTION, all that ozone rubbish is just another way for the government to tax the ordinary person in the street, it is not the rich who have to give up anything, they will still drive their big cars, they will still be able to afford to smoke their big cigars, they will be able to afford to have their recycled rubbish collected, all this stuff just effects the poorest of society.
No Green REVOLUTION, just a REVOLUTION full stop.
