Petition Tag - offence
We are ever delving in to peoples personal lives, with data being stored in all kinds of physical and digital states; in an ever expanding list of places e.g. cyberspace, police, local authorities, banks, mobile phones.
But much of this stored data is an infringement of our right to a 'Private and Family Life' as indicated in the Human Rights Act.
Now as a parent I consider the 'Law' and the associated powers to be a stringent and essential part of our lives in dealing with crime and potential acts of crime. However a 'Police Caution' is not a 'Sentence' or 'Conviction' and thus should not be allowed to remain on Police records as it is not a 'Spent Crime'. But the retention of this 'Caution' can be pretty damning, similarly as points on our drivers licence has the same effect. But even those points are removed once the offence has been 'Spent'. So why is it then that the law permits a 'Caution' to remain for 99-100 years on police records?
A 'Police Caution' is just that - a 'Caution' and not a conviction, therefore it should not remain indefinitely but serve as a deterrent for a prescribed amount of time e.g. four years.
I am against the causing offence to other religions.
In this case the Danish media is causing problems for the common citizens of that country by having Danish products and services boycotted by People of Islamic faith.
We do not need to breed more hatred against the West; we have had too much violence in the last decade.
We want to live in a harmonious society and peace. The Danish media must accept responsibility in which they have caused offence and had initially caused the problem in inciting certain individuals who have passion and love for their faith.
The Danish media is to blame.
