"A very rare review of the proposal has been submitted to the department of justice."
"Two older gentlemen, considerably more also been the subject savvy than most, appealing tearfully to the government to come to their senses."
"I wrote yesterday about the government's proposal to introduce a new offence, blåljussabotage. It is an important proposal: the Society's view on attacks against the police, ambulance and fire department need to be strengthened and clarified."
"But it is also an initiative that says something depressing about the state of the Swedish criminal policy. The government wants to namely, that the offence could lead to life imprisonment."
"That the law's most severe punishment in the scale is due to the provision if, for example, luftsabotage has been copied. And that luftsabotage can lead to life imprisonment depends, in turn, at a convention in Montreal, which was adopted in 1971 after a series of flygkapningar carried out by terrorists."
"Laws, which yesterday were used in the fight against terrorism should in the morning, also apply to rock-throwing kids in our poorest suburbs."
"another example of the current political lagskärpningspsykosen is the proposal to abolish the straffreduktionen for people aged 18 to 21 who commit crimes."
"the Proposal has been sent out for consultation to the relevant bodies, and one of the answers are unexpected."
"It's Stone Heckscher and Day Victor, two retired lawyers with clean records out of the ordinary, as oombett have sent in their comments."
"They have been justices of the Supreme court, and the Supreme administrative court, they have both been managers of the justice department's straffrättsenhet, had other prominent positions in the judiciary and resulted in investigations."
"in other words It is two people who have significantly more knowledge of criminal policy than the average legislator, not to mention the tangentbordskrigare in särskrivna post on Facebook, it sets out the future direction of criminal law."
"The answer begins with a reminder:"
"”Sweden has a long reputation of bringing a far-sighted and humanitarian acceptable criminal policy, mainly based on knowledge and rationality”."
"Heckscher and Victor then puts forward their views. They point out that the investigation that is the basis for the proposal has determined that the elimination of the 21-year limit can not be justified with the modern psychological or neurological research ."
"They recalls that young people often have a more undeveloped ability to take responsibility than adults, they are more psychologically sensitive to punishment, and to incarceration in prison can be counterproductive and lead to a criminal career begins."
"in Addition, the two lawyers that the investigation come to the conclusion that the crime rate in the age group has fallen in the last ten years. Brottsutvecklingen justify in other words, these tougher measures."
"”the Investigation shows in a convincing way that the government's order is a violent and unfocused overreaction to a in and of itself a serious problem,” reads the men's bleak summary."
"They mention, of course, the biggest lack in idiocy. The investigation was made against the backdrop of gängmord and explosions. But the proposal does not only focus on the very few young people who commit these very serious crimes. No, it applies to all offenders in the current age."
"Many young people commit any crime, infamous then, and become law-abiding citizens. In the future, they must also be judged as if they were full-grown. The penalties for all those will be tightened up dramatically."
"Is there another way to go? Heckscher and Victor connects to the specific opinion, which two of the commission's experts put forward. I shall not burden this text with the legal hassle, but it is, in brief, to abolish the rebate only for the most serious crimes."
"Maybe honk the government kids on. Maybe take the impression of the various remissinstansers powerful objections. Perhaps, the two aged men, beautiful and sad attempt to take responsibility and make a difference mean anything."
