Tough Talk But Crims Still Walk

A SENIOR Brisbane judge yesterday vowed: get tough on callous reoffenders who disregard their fellow citizens. District Court judge Helen O'Sullivan said she had finally lost patience with criminals who ignored judges' warnings and community obligations, saying recalcitrant offenders could expect the hard hand of the law in her court...
Then she let another one go, ignoring Crown prosecutors' arguments that a violent offender be jailed for breaching his correction order and ordering the man to undertake 180 hours' community service.

Meanwhile, a gang of young thugs on a rampage of assault and robbery in Adelaide are also repeat offenders allowed to walk again and again:

Many of the offences have been committed while gang members are on bail or serving suspended sentences.
