Letter: Prisoners are on Easy Street

A long time ago, our justice system was quick and didn't mess around, but now we have a bunch of softhearted bureaucrats who would rather play patty cake with the criminals instead of punish them.

My question to all of you is this: Don't they even care about the victims of these animals? After all, don't the victims deserve more respect than the criminals who terrorized and killed their loved ones? Where's the justice for them? Get my drift, bureaucrats? That also goes for the public defenders as well. What goes around, comes around - that's how I feel.

Years back, prisons weren't so easy to be in, but now politicians are letting the guilty run the prisons. They riot if they don't get what they want. What happened to our old system?
