Where buck stops

Townsville Bulletin - - Voice Of The North -

RE: ‘‘ Con­cerns se­rial rapist a dan­ger to com­mu­nity’’.

Pres­i­dent Tru­man said ‘‘ the buck stops here". Maybe we should have those words in­scribed in large let­ters and placed in a very prom­i­nent po­si­tion on the bench of ev­ery judge and mag­is­trate in Queens­land.

It’s their de­ci­sions that im­pact on the lives of peo­ple put at risk by these so­ciopaths who con­tin­u­ally re-of­fend and are freed time and again by a ju­di­cial sys­tem that ap­pears not to care for the peo­ple who de­pend on it.

KAREN BENNETT, Con­don.
