Editor's Comment: Make criminals pay!
MAKE ‘em pay!
What good news that some victims of cruel conmen have seen some of the cash that was taken from them now returned.
Hit these villains where it hurts – in the pocket and let their victims get some much needed cash back in the form of compensation.
For far too many criminals these days, crime seems to pay – the perception of the public is that burglars, conmen and the like are simply getting away with far too much.
The letters our viewpoint postbag receives reflect a society’s thinking that the criminals have the upper hand.
This may, in some cases, only be a perception – but it is a perception that needs to change and that change can start when publicity is given to such things as these compensation pay outs.
The public must see that those who break the law are made to pay and do have their illegal proceeds taken away.
