  1. In order to continue a National Crime Fighting Strategy, it is absolutely necessary to HAVE a strategy; and to HAVE STARTED it! N’est-ce pas?

  2. The only effective answer is, when a youngster steps out of line of the Law, is to pull out
    the Lolobeff and whip his @ss good and proper, with a warning, if you try that again, we’ll double it.
    If it’s a girl, let a woman do it with just a leather Strap. If anyone is a repeat offender, only then you Jail.

    Differentiate the gravity of the crime:- Wounding – Drug offences – Fire Arm possession – Larceny etc etc.
    Seasoned criminals must be dealt with, with the full weight of the Law, a penalty fitting with the gravity of
    the offence;for Males, whipping, Jail & hard labour, Females Jail,labour & Schooling. “If you kill – You hang”
