Where is the Justice?

Where is the Justice?

What's wrong with this justice system?
Why is it so goddamned corrupt?
End three innocent lives and what?
Barely get a few years behind bars.
Those beautiful people had much to give
but one man took their lives away
leaving three families in complete disarray
but what does he get? Basically to walk away.

Where is the justice in that?

Did those lives mean absolutely nothing?
This guy is a murderer three times over!
A slap on the wrist? Well let's do it again!
How can the justice system let him go?
He destroyed three lives and left a city in turmoil
How can he get so little a sentence?
What were they thinking? He's a murderer!

* Four teenagers were in a car crash last year; three died. The man behind the wheel was drunk, speeding through red-lights and didn't even stop to see if they were alright. Two could've survived that accident if he had. Now his sentence, or lack there of, is just another punch in the face to the family and friends of those beautiful people.

Forever R.I.P.

    Injustice, is the worst insult. Every deed, awaits recompense.

    I don't know which part of Australia you are in but...it doesn't really matter because, sadly these stories are across all our states and...although I know we have different laws state to state it would seem that leniency is nation wide.

    So many times I drive on roads with all these crosses and...it breaks my heart because most are either speed related or alcohol related...
