Mongrels with 90 convictions should not be on the street

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Mongrels with 90 previous convictions should not be on the street

Questions need to be asked why this low life mongrel was able to be free, on the streets, and able to go on a crime rampage assaulting and robbing elderly women”.

Somebody, somewhere made a decision that this low-life was safe to be released on home detention, in doing so they also decided that he was not ‘a risk to the safety of the community’. McVicar

The Sensible Sentencing Trust is disgusted that what they term as a ‘low-life mongrel’ with 90 previous convictions was ever released, let alone on home detention and are vowing to hold someone accountable for his release.

Trust Spokesman Garth McVicar said that Home Detention was meant to be for low risk offenders only and the fact that William Murphy, who committed these home invasions had 90 previous convictions for burglary, violence and sexual crimes should have ensured he was not a candidate for Home Detention.

“The public, and particularly the elderly deserve much better, I despise the fact that any woman is assaulted, but elderly people being attacked in the privacy of their own home is the most despicable crime imaginable”.

“It appears that our law makers are not listening to what the public are saying and if it takes sueing the person or persons responsible then that is precisely what we will do”.

“Somebody, somewhere made a decision that this low-life was safe to place on home detention, in doing so they also decided that he was not ‘a risk to the safety of the community’.

“We want to identify who was responsible for releasing Murphy and make sure they are held accountable for the grief and damage he has done”. ENDS
