Judges at the Courts of Human Rights can be dangerous people. Their rulings affect not only those persons asking for a decision on behalf of murders, rapists, terrorists and those who incite their actions, but also those that are affected by the actions of those outside the law. Then there are those who preach hatred and violence against others, all these people seem to have rights which are denied to their victims.
These Judges do not seem to take into consideration the rights of individuals to live a life without fear, without pain, without suffering and without crying out each day ‘where is my daughter where is my son’, or the mental suffering of one person abused by another. The families, relatives, friends and members of the general public who have lost loved ones, or been mentally and physically damaged by the actions of such people.
The most dangerous rulings are those that affect politicians and appear to affect the general public, because then there’s an up-swelling of opposition to the Courts of Human Rights and legislation is then passed to restrict the influence of these courts. We all have rights and need strong clear laws to maintain them, our very freedom depends on this.
That is why the Courts of Human Rights need to walk a line that does not go in one direction only, giving more protection to those who destroy our lives. A balance has to be maintained they should always remember the victims first!
I always remember Ken Livingstone goading Margaret Thatcher from across the Thames, who then disbanded the Greater London Council. So these Judges should remember courts can be disbanded, laws can be changed by politicians. We need good Human Rights so do not destroy it all by making rulings that go against everyone.
You only exist because people want you to, but they can easily change their minds.
