Poor little petals

"A bill to ban prison inmates from voting in general elections is unnecessary, unhealthy and undemocratic, a select committee was told today.

In a submission to the law and order committee, the New Zealand Law Society said the Electoral (Disqualification of Convicted Prisoners) Amendment Bill was a violation of the Bill of Rights and "completely out of line" with international law..."


Victims have rights. Crims don't give a shit about them.

If you can't participate properly in society, without initiating force against others- why the hell would you get a say (such as it is) in how society is ruled.
