Baby Brianna...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

While I don't believe as you believe, Linda, I do believe in karmic debt; I believe there will be a further price to pay for what these monsters did to innocent 5-month-old Baby Brianna.

Yes, I agree, what form it takes frightens me to think as to what form it will take when it happens
by: Maurice

Yes I live my life to the best without harming another in any way out of fear of what form justice will take when it comes it comes to me. I believe in God's mercy and forgiveness, I believe that is for those who Love the God they believe in and who seek it in their own life during life. For those who have abused and done awful things to children/teenagers/adolecents I believe their justice will come when they least expect it. Putting a very small percent away in prisons is societies form of Justice and sadly those who live in denial of what they have done that is not justice for them. I reckon their day of reckoning may come after they die.

Look at it another way
by: Elaine Ellis

Just read your page after a long time away fom this site.

I have to say that I agree with much of what you suggest about the Criminal Justice System, but draw the line when it comes to speculation about the "hereafter". I'm not a religious person - I don't really see the need for "organised religion". Personal belief is one thing, but on a wider scale, we have to accept that everyone is entitled to different views. What I believe happens afer death may not be what another person agrees with. All I can say is, that if there does turn out to be a God, then I hope this figure is NOT vitriolic and retaliatory and punitive. Many of us suffer enough in life. I'm content to stick with an image of kind, caring and loving.

That's not to say that wrongdoers should go unpunished. Maybe the flaw is in the system we have set up to deal with them? The "justice" meted out through many Courts proves often to be subjective and inconsistent. Whilst I understnd that it is the role of the Judge and Jurors to come to an agreement regarding sentencing, based upon available evidence, such a system cannot be without its problems. It relies utterly upon perception - and what I perceive is NOT the same as what others may. Consequently, one Judge and Jury may come to a different conclusion to another, based upon how they have interpreted available information. Besides, they cannot make decisions that stand alone - our decision making processes are highly dependent upon life experience. The Judge brought up in a Private School where hierarchy, status and snobbery predominated, and where bullying was rife, may well find that this experience affects their views concerning specific cases. The outcome of said cases will then be very likely afected by said Judge's views.
Sadly, we are all human, and all flawed. We make mistakes. Our Justice System is NOT immune to this. Rather than concerning ourselves with the afterlife, would it not be better to concern ourslves with making very real, and very important improvements to our Justice System?
