No to 90 days without charge!

So, it turns out democracy isn’t so bad after all. Parliament did their job, and instead opted for the much more sensible 28 days. Why the government pushed for three months might never be known – they were close to compromise, after all, but backed away at the last minute.

90 days was wrong. Imagine if you were held for 90 days without charge? Not to mention that terrorism is usually about intelligence failure, the point being that you don’t know who will be committing it anyway! This plan wouldn’t have helped stop terrorism, merely make a police state more likely.

    YAY! I think we should just put everyone in prison, that way, we wouldn’t have to worry about all the crimes including terrorism. If you commit crimes in prison, you also get smaller sentences eg, you kill a man outside prison you get 10yrs, you kill a man inside prison, you get 3. But then again if we were all in prsion for no reason, would we have to commit a crime, fulfill a 3yr sentence then get out? Would we be forced to kill to be free?
    Rambling? Me? By bringing this to my attention I promise I will either stop rambling, or ramble more.

    OK MRS SELF?

    you pacifist bastard self , it seems u have already forgotten about 7/7, 90 daysmay seem like a long time it is , but scumbags who plant bombs with the intent to kill should be locked , not just 90 days but longer

    Mentally-challenged? You’re not kidding.

    What its me seems to forget is that we presume innocence until guilt is proven. If the police and security services can’t find enough evidence to support a case inside a month they’re either crap or the suspect is probably innocent.

    Once guilt is proven, I say give them automatic life (meaning life – not eight years).

    I agree with Ketlan and not ‘it’s me’ for the same reason, 90 days for someone who could be innocent is far worse than 28.

    Thanks for your comments though Ketlan – exactly what I was thinking

  7. Rob says:
