Our expert says:
Being drunk or on drugs must never be seen as any form of excuse for criminal behaviour, and only stupid courts would think so - if you choose to get drunk of drugged to the point of being unable to stop yourself doing horrible things, you're guilty of whatever you did. And most poor people never rape anyone, so that too is never an excuse or mitigation.
And there seems to be remarkably little shame felt by rapists who get caught. Whether anti-rape courses in school would make a difference, I don't know, but it should be tried and evaluated. Surely the most important education on the basic issue of respecting other people and their rights, must be taught by every mother and father in every family ?
I never quite understoof why we supposedly have a democracy in which the wishes of the majority MUST be done, but the politicians have decided that the will of the majority on the issue of the death sentence must forever be ignored. I'm not, here, commenting on the death penalty itself, but on my puzzlement about why one specific issue must apparently always disregard what the majority want.
