Punch Drunk

These quotes from Helen Clark this morning in response to the National Party's new parole policy that will mean repeat violent offenders who kill will get life in prison, that is, stay there until they die, really says it all:

"A lot of these long-term prisoners, over time start to change their behaviour, some become very religious.

"The National Party's attitude is they don't care about that at all, they just want to be vindictive."

NZ Herald

"...are a waste of money..."

Helen Clark, Newstalk ZB 9.00am news bulletin 5 Oct 2008

She is out of touch, and these comments once again focus the importance back on the perpetrator rather than the victim.

She simply cares more about criminals than victims.
