the value of a life

Ah, yes, the frog in boiling water ...

In Australia the very frequency of indecencies of the criminal justice system inure us in some measure to those indecencies. But the most recent insult may yet provoke a   Thomas Kelly: 18 years old; walking in a public area; murdered in a unprovoked attack by a stranger.For this act of extermination the murderer is jailed for 4 years.

Postscript: on the appeal of the public prosecutor, Kelly's killer minimum sentence was increased to 10 years and two months.
