PROZAC'S

IT'S IN WHOSE BEST INTEREST??!!

First, let me apologise for using the same header for this page as I have for the last rant.
The heading is tragic in a way, and ironic in that it could justifiably be used each time one of these types of case happens. I've a feeling it will remain on my hard drive for many years.

Below, obtained by the use of money and 'favours', is a possible transcript of the parole hearing for Venables and Thompson, the two responsible for the most evil, sustained, and premeditated attack and torture on a person that many police officers had seen in their careers.

**********************

PAROLE BOARD MEMBER 1:
Now, Jon. You don't mind if I call you Jon, do you? Or would you prefer 'Mr. Venables, sir' or 'The Right Honourable Gentleman'?

VENABLES:
No. Jon's fine. I'd like my laptop and my video games sent up now. And I want a Big Mac with lots of fries.

PAROLE BOARD MEMBER 1:
We'll get several police officers who should be on the streets fighting crime to drive down to your en-suite accommodation straight away for those.
That's something you'll have to get used to, I'm afraid to say; having lots of people around to protect you. It's a terrible indictment on today's society that they'll be needed, but, there are a lot of violent people out there. I can only apologise for the kind of world we're letting you out into.
Now, Jon, what you did to that young child, er...what was her name... ? (rustle of papers) Jamie. What you did to Jamie was not nice and even though we know, because you've told us, that it was Robert Thompson who did it all, you were there.
Now, Jon. This is very serious and we, the forces of law and order in this great country of ours, are very angry. So angry in fact we could stop your pocket money allowance, take away your videos and computers games, no television for a whole day, and no trips and foreign holidays with expenses.
There, there, don't get upset. We won't really do it. We're not animals.
Before we let you out, though, we must make absolutely sure that you won't do this sort of thing again. Therefore, we need to ask you some very important, searching, direct and psychologist-developed questions and we need to be sure you're going to answer honestly.
Think carefully before you reply and if you're stuck on anything, ask your lawyer. He's the nice man in the suit it would take a pensioner many, many years to save up for.
No, the other expensive suit, next to the social worker. The social worker's the person looking at the map of areas with schools to re-house the paedophiles on his caseload.
No, his job doesn't let him bother with starving pensioners. Really, Jon, you're not helping yourself with this inane chatter.
Right. Jon, here goes: If we let you out. Would you behave?

VENABLES:
Yeh!

PAROLE BOARD MEMBER 1:
Thanks for that, Jon. If you'd like to step outside now, we'll make a decision. Oh, OK. No, we'll go outside, if you've nearly got the highest score on your Ninja Mutoid Killer Robots in a Nursery game.

(Sound of chairs scraping and door opening and closing.)

PAROLE BOARD MEMBER 1:
Well, gentlemen, I think the questions, though they were a little invasive of Jon's inalienable right to privacy, were thoroughly searching and I think we've got enough to proceed from here.

PAROLE BOARD MEMBER 2:
I'm sure he shows genuine remorse. I think I heard him say 'sorry'.

PAROLE BOARD MEMBER 3:
I think it would be inhumane to keep him in prison. Other prisoners might target him with nasty leaflets and hate letters and such. It's too dreadful to contemplate. After all, we live in a civilised society.

PAROLE BOARD MEMBER 1:
Agreed, then. Release as soon as possible. And we must make sure the media don't get hold of this. And any other namby-pamby civil rights groups with their communist, pinko, subversive doctrines. What is this country coming to when these people are allowed to say what they want against citizens who've served their time and paid their debts. Bloody reporters really get my gander up. They should banish the trouble-causers. Flogging's too good for them, I say. Hitler had the right idea.

PAROLE BOARD MEMBER 3:
Well said. I'm a peaceful man, but if I have to fight for democracy, then I will.

**********************

Due to lack of space, we've edited the tape of Thompson's Parole Board hearing. The important details have been retained.

Although, to save time, you could re-read the above and substitute 'Venables' with 'Thompson'. Or vice-versa. There's really very little between them!

PROZAC is not too bothered who he offends. If it means that someone sits up, takes notice and actually does something to rid the country (preferably the world) of scumbags, do-gooders, social workers and bleeding-heart liberal-minded politicians, he'll go for it.
If you disagree with any of his comments - tough shit.
