Restorative Justice (Thugs Policing)

FAIR has watched carefully as the arguments grumbles on over the Restorative Justice Scheme. The scheme would itself be a laughing matter, if it were not so serious. What we see here is the powers of policing being handed over to thugs and past criminals, whilst true policing in Northern Ireland is depleted by the day. Effectively what is taking place, is that thugs are being allowed the opportunity to police their own areas. Given the past of many of these "ex-criminals and ex-terrorists, the opportunity is there for them to protect their own criminal/terrorist activities, should they still be involved in those.

FAIR is disgusted at the disbanding and depletion our countries' security, when the threat from terrorism has not resided and terrorist related criminality is at an all time high. This is an injury to the law-abiding people of Northern Ireland who have already endured nothing but suffering and economic suppression because of violence and criminality. Now to add insult to injury, the same government is allowing the same gangsters who caused this suffering and economic suppression, to police their own areas and protect their own endeavours.

We at FAIR will oppose this utterly preposterous Restorative Justice scheme and should that mean taking a legal case, then we will do so whole heartedly.
