Yeah, Nah Kel. We actually prefer ratbags in prison

Kelvin Davis, the crim-hugging part of Labour’s leadership is back doing what he does best…hugging the criminal demographic.

Labour says if elected it might take a look at bail laws in order to fulfil its promise to cut the prison population by 30 percent over the next 15 years.

More than 10,000 people are behind bars in New Zealand – the highest level ever, and Labour has pledged to reduce that number.

Its corrections spokesperson and deputy leader, Kelvin Davis, told Newshub’s The Nation one way of doing this could be to liberalise bail laws.  

“We have to have a look at them … there’s no doubt that the Sentencing Act in 2002, bail laws, they all contributed to the increased prison muster.”

Mr Davis would not definitively commit to a review, but said it was important to figure out where increases to the prison population were coming from.

Where are increases coming from? From criminals breaking the law.

Who passed the Sentencing Act 2002? Labour did.

Why on earth does Labour want ratbags on the street?

Reducing the prison muster by 30%? That is more than 3000 ratbags back in the community committing crimes.

Voters prefer criminal ratbags to be in prison…where they belong, not living next door to us.

A vote for Labour is a vote for them to release 3000 criminals back onto the streets.
