London Bridge victim's father condemns 'beyond disgusting' Boris Johnson for using son's death for political gain - 'Don’t use my son’s death to promote your vile propaganda. Jack stood against everything you stand for'

As per usual, there is already people conflating rehabilitation and restorative justice with “releasing everybody and fuck all”. Ironically, the point of restorative justice is that a culpable individual may access its culpability and restore the damage it caused to the victim and its community, not that it sits in a cell for 10 years munching up public money and planning how it will stab someone when it leaves jail.

No one proposing a saner method of criminal justice thinks everything will be fine and dandy if it is ever instituted, only that it may reduce recidivism, save money on non-violent offenses, address actual justice to the victims and create an environment where community may deal with its offenders.

The talk about immigration is also bizarre, as Khan was a British citizen born in the UK, and yet his parents are somehow culpable for his crimes and should have been prevented from immigrate in order so they wouldn’t have a son that would eventually become a terrorist.
