I would like to thank Ross Nielson for responding to my letter (Times May 10 )
I feel there is a major part missing from our justice system and that is that the person who commits pain and/or suffering to another person (or animal) is exempt from having any like pain or suffering inflicted on them .
Bullies are cowards and if they thought the same thing would happen to them, then they would think twice.
As a teacher in corporal punishment days, I found this to be a major deterrent to bullying as anyone caught bullying was a coward at punishment time.
I think of the old man who was left for dead and whose assailants were not punished. What does that say of the judge concerned and I question their competence to be a judge. How are they appointed?
No crime should go unpunished no matter how small; everyone should be answerable for their actions.
