Unequal penalties

August 1st, 2008 § 0 comments


Under new laws approved by the Senate, illegal immigrants convicted of crimes will now face jail sentences a third longer than those for Italians.

The Senate was addressed by the anti-immigrant Northern League party’s Sandro Mazzatorta, who linked immigration to criminality.

“Foreigners committed 60% of the attempted homicides, 60% of the robberies (and) 82% of the muggings,” he said, referring to last year’s figures from the city of Brescia.

Make your penalties harsher for all citizens, not just immigrants, and then watch crime fall among Italians too.
Or is it a case of “foreigners coming over, taking opportunities for robberies away from Italian criminals. It shouldn’t be allowed!”?
