HM will attend the 10th Remembrance meeting for the victims of senseless violence organised by the Remembrance Day for Victims of Violence Foundation,Doetinchem this morning.

It is the day we here remember the "useless violence" and its victims.Murdered in the streets for the silliest reasons,and perpetrators almost always getting away with nearly zero punishment.The Dutch judicial system is an absolute farce and I am all for Capital punishment as nothing else scares the next nut off.Its really way too idiotic to see what the judges rule these days.And then Dutch prisons.They are like holiday homes with flatscreen tv and all kinds of goodies that makes me want them to return to water and bread.Medieval?The twits that commit these crimes,THAT is medieval and should be punished accordingly.

Not that it shows much...,but I think this particular subject gets me going as my own grandfather was shot on the street while having a walk on august 30th 1968.I never forget,nor forgive.The guy got away with 2 years in a mental institution,from my tax money,and after that period was allowed weekends home..........and then one sunday,I never forget,he came to our house requesting or he was allowed to take care of my grandfathers vault.Really....ofcourse he wasn't......As if that is normal.It is not,and it should be dealt with severely.It's also the silliest of things to organize yet another silent walk instead of preventing these things from happening.
