My waiter, the chefs and all the guys at The Clink HMP Brixton appear to be smart, courteous, well trained and as suited to the job as any restaurant staff I've come across. But more than that, they have an air of hope about them.
Researchers have been telling us for years that homicide is very much a male phenomenon - these crimes are largely male-perpetrated and men are over-represented as victims. Official data bears this out - the most recent figures from the Office for National Statistics inform us that 90% of suspects and around 2/3 of victims are male.
One of the key questions academics face with this agenda is whether there are limits we will have to heed with urbanisation. Or in other words, can the expansion of cities be a linear scaling driven by the number its inhabitants.
Dr Wariyar talked about many aspects of ADHD - including of course - the core symptoms. Inattention - difficulty in giving attention to detail - not appearing to listen - difficulty in completing a task - not following through on instructions.
The UK must empower women and girls to be free from the harmful effects of female genital mutilation (FGM) by ending this global practice. Prosecuting criminal cases must be seen as part of the package of effort necessary to achieve this...
The stigma of addiction is a pernicious and inhumane phenomenon. The continuing description of drug addicts as criminals rather than people who are unhealthy or sick prevents them getting well and consigns their family to years of misery and often destitution. Addicts should be treated and supported into recovery. Their entrapment in criminal justice is a waste of police time, a waste of the state's money and dissuades addicts from revealing themselves for treatment for fear of the criminal consequences.
The next Labour Government must work with that conclusion to bring a wholesale change from coercive behaviour in order to protect the next generation of women.
Gordon Taylor has apologised to Liverpool families who suffered a miscarriage of justice; I would like to see him apologise to the victim of a crime that he appears to have conveniently erased from his version of history: the rape of a woman by Ched Evans. She deserves an apology too.
Today, our legal system is one step closer to being able to hold domestic violence perpetrators accountable for their crimes. It is one step closer to being able to accurately depict the true nature of domestic violence within the courtroom and further protect victims of domestic violence and their children.
Since 1974, there have been very few clues - whatsoever - about what happened to Lord Lucan. But the very few clues there have been all indicate that Lord Lucan did indeed manage to flee the country... And started up a new life in Africa or perhaps India... And could quite easily be celebrating his 80th birthday this week...
tinson Hunter's vigilante methods of catching sexual predators may divide opinion; but there is no denying that he has raised awareness of an issue we should all be concerned about.
TV Drama 'The Lost Honour Of Christopher Jefferies' hammers home the important message that not all of those arrested for a crime are guilty: Yes, even the strange looking ones.
Vigilantes fighting Mexico's drugs cartels are operating an unofficial, illegal jail where they have locked up gang members for "crimes" including murder. The discovery of the jail, high in the Sierra Madre mountains, provides new evidence of how far the government's complicity with the cartels and its failure to stop the violence has driven people to take the law into their own hands. ..
The reality is we also have a group of youngsters who risk being left behind for good if we don't change the status quo. Is the shadow spokesman really arguing to just consign this group to rattling round the justice system, committing offences time and again until they end up as adults behind bars?
While we rightly celebrate today, all is not rosy. Forces close to home are intent on weakening people's rights here, and undermining our standing abroad. The Tories are threatening to walk away from the ECHR and rip up our Human Rights Act, replacing it with a weaker Bill of Rights... Walking away from the ECHR would mean closing ourselves off to the world. This reverses centuries of history and is so very un-British. Our moral authority to press other countries on their human rights record - a cornerstone of our foreign policy - would be chopped off at the knees.
