Getting on with your life after punishment.

Now as we all know I think that sentencing in this country is pathetic. The criminals just don't get the sentencing they deserve.

So it actually annoys me when we have someone that has gone through the *cough* justice system and done his time as is said and then another party jumps on the bandwagon and then punishes him again. This time to deprive him of his livelihood. Read here about a head teacher struck off the register for a crime that had nothing to do with work at all.

This isn't right. When you have a limited skill set and are looking for a job to say you cannot have a job in that area is disgusting. I don't actually see any justification for them to do that at all. How is he going to get back into society? How can he earn any money? Changing his role in society means you start at the bottom on a lower salary and have a steep learning curve. How come the prison service didn't get him a job on leaving like they do with others? Finding people that couldn’t get a job a job somewhere. It seems this guy did find a job but someone decided that in their opinion he had not been punished enough.

That someone being another government body. Joined up thinking again by our useless government. Although I wonder if that would apply to him being employed in England. Maybe he should make a run for it to make a better life for himself. It is Wales after all.

James, That is not my understanding. I think you have a wide skill set although from your location I would uess it is in a limited environment. Just an opinion though. You should come back to the UK after the revolution.
