Comment on Criminal lawyers oppose Country Liberals on mandatory sentencing by Dianne.

In Dubai (UAE) everyone feels safe, except the criminal. Anti-social behavior is not accepted and law-abiding citizens, both locals and visitors to the UAE, enjoy real human rights, i.e. the right to walk the streets at night without fear; to attend events, visit cafes and to “own” their own society. Women in particular feel safe in the UAE and can be seen walking around on their own late at night – it’s been a long time since I felt safe in my own country.
We have for too long been intimidated by lawyers in western countries actively promoting the right of the criminal to the detriment of the innocent; but it doesn’t have to be that way. Perhaps we should expand Multiculturalism to reserve places on the bench for Muslim lawyers.
