This is a petition to change the Law so as to have the sentence of a crime reflective of the out come for example:
There is a 2 year old girl called Cerys Edwards who has recently been on television in the UK as she was left severely brain damaged by a 19 year old youth who was permitted by his millionaire parents to drive a high powered Range Rover at 70 mph in a 30 mph zone,as he was dangerously overtaking, he hit the car of Cerys and her family head on and "ripped" her from her car seat, severing her spine from her skull and leaving her in a "vegetated" state. Her Father revived her. After lots of surgery, although they have saved her life she will never walk or talk again or breathe on her own or live anything resembling a normal life.
The computer built into the airbag proved his speed, add that to the fact he had only had a full license for 6 months should have meant in a properly "civilized society" it would have been illegal for him to have had access to a car that was described as "a tank with a sports car engine" and his parents would have been prosecuted also.
What did he get for this terrible disregard for other road users...?
21 months in our "Butlins holiday Camp" style prison that we are unfortunate to have here, where he will serve a percentage of those 21 months and be allowed out on license potentially allowing him to be able to do it again.
He was also given a 5 year ban from driving!!- WOW a real deterrent - I think not!
The Matthew family have had their daughter permanantley removed from their lives as she was ie. a life sentence, and the most the judge can prosecute him with is Dangerous Driving.
This petition is to get the UK a new law such as - Destroying a Persons life (directley or indirectley) through committing ANY crime.
A Judge will then be able to pass a sentence appropriate to the severity of the crime.
We want the Law changing on ALL aspects of sentencing...each individual case should be sentenced accordingly not clumped together under a Maximum sentence. The consequences of a persons actions should be reflective in the sentencing to encourage our citizens to think twice about what they are about to do.
Please sign this petition to be sent to the House of Lords to change the Law as it stands as it is a complete joke.
To add insult to injury this little girl cannot live at home as her parents are unable to pay for the adaptation of their house. Yet the parents of this arrogant young man are worth in excess of 110 million Pounds sterling. Compensation should also be enforced on the same basis.
Our Law currently offers absolute zero properties as an efficient deterrent which is why we have over 89,000 inmates, even if they do get given a sentence it is, for up to 90\% of them, a better life inside than what they have in our society!!
