Child killer gets community service
Child killer, Alan Austin Hughes has been sentenced to 200 hours of community service for breaching his parole conditions.
Allan Hughes, who changed his name to Blain Lopez Smith, was sentenced in Port Macquarie Local Court on Monday after pleading guilty to failing to comply with reporting conditions.
He was sentenced to a minimum of 14 years jail in 1994 for the fatal bashing of his girlfriend's six-year-old son, John Ashfield on the NSW south coast in the previous year.
He was paroled from Silverwater prison on strict conditions in 2009.
Paul Murray spoke with Howard Brown, President of the Victims of Crime Assistance League about the parole violation.
This is the weakness of the law and the media. The media goes haywire when a handful of naive muslims go on the street to protest and behave as if it is the crime of the century and at the same time has a such a soft approach to child killers and child molesters. These criminals must be put behind bars for life. Further there must be a thorough investigations in churches and schools to uncover the evil acts that were and are put under the carpet by the christian lobby. I agree this is not a Christan issue but many cases have come from this context. We need to protect our children and we need to take this matter seriously as a society. The law will act if we can voice our opinions in a diligent manner.YUSUF Wednesday 31 October, 2012 - 11:01 AM
Lotteries took off in the 20s. It was called the numbers racket and run by the mob. But of course governments operate with only the interests of the people in mind and the mob simply had to be stopped. Very little money was recovered from the mob after 20 years of open slather. Where do you think that money went. Under a gigantic mattress perhaps. Several scandals with the Vatican bank indicated they received a great deal of that money. But of course the rest of the money is also in banks. The governments that simply had to do the right thing and the banks that are bastions of credibility cashed in bigger than the mob. Then by some curious quirk of fate lotteries became legal and operated by the government. And of course they were then a public service providing extraordinary benefit to the community. Then by another curious quirk of fate the government sold all lottery facilities to meet their liabilities with the banks. You dont have to be Einstein to work out who owns the lottery agencies now. Now an incredible coincidence has occurred and the largest jackpot in Australian history will be drawn on Melbourne cup day. A 100m jackpot means they will generate probably 200m and through their extraordinary generosity and love of the community they will put back perhaps 20m into Australia. The rest goes offshore into further bank accounts of the bankers. And beyond the first prize where does the rest of the winnings go. To millions of invisible people who will never be declared and never pay tax. But it has to be legit because the government says so right. Dont be a dullard. Banks and government conspirators are the real mob.Comedy at its Worst Wednesday 31 October, 2012 - 8:51 AM
