Tana McKenzie must be avenged by true justice!

Tuesday 11, January 2005

Alexander: Tana McKenzie must be avenged by true justice!

"The mongrel who murdered Tana McKenzie deserves no less than to be thrown behind bars for the rest of his or her life," said United Future Law & Order spokesman Marc Alexander.

"The time for giving excuses or second, third and fourth chances for offenders like the trash who killed Tana are long past gone. Concern for them and their rehabilitation is a waste of time. We must focus now on Tana's family and their need to rebuild their lives."

"We still have a criminal justice system that places offenders at its heart - and it's wrong. It is victims that must form the basis of a new type of system: a system that stops 'mollycoddling' the crims and gives recognition to the needs of those that are offended against."

"The murder of Tana has created victims of the whole family as well as her friends and co-workers. They need to find justice not only for Tana but for themselves as well."
