UK: “we can’t afford to lose a whole generation of naive young men”

Stupid on steroids. Who exactly is losing out  if “we” are not allowing a bunch of unassimilable Mohammedan savages to return to Britain?

Surge in terror cases as jihadis flood back to Britain: Prosecutors mass hire more lawyers as Islamist and far-right extremists return to the UK
  • Sue Hemming called for counter-terrorism powers to prosecute appropriately
  • They would be used where ‘traditional investigative powers are not sufficient’
  • Counter-terror prosecutor Ms Hemming said CPS is to launch recruitment drive 

Prosecutors have hit back at claims jihadis returning to Britain from Syria should not face justice amid a surge in terror cases.

Sue Hemming, head of the counter-terrorism and special crime division at the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), has called for specific powers to be used against homegrown extremists  Islamic terrorists who fought for ISIS.

She noted that charges such as murder were used often in such cases, but in many instances the conduct alleged needed to be prosecuted using the wide range of terrorism offences on the statute book.

Ms Hemming has also disclosed that the CPS is set to launch a recruitment drive in response to a spike in terror cases.

The call for new powers comes after an anti-terror watchdog said ‘naive’ teenagers who return to Britain after fighting for ISIS should be allowed to reintegrate rather than face prosecution.
Max Hill QC, the independent reviewer of terrorism legislation, said hundreds of Britons coming home after serving under the brutal terror group in Iraq and Syria have not been charged to avoid ‘losing a generation’ of young men.

However, speaking at the National Security Summit in London, Ms Hemming said bringing the jihadis to justice was a matter of national security.

She said: ‘We must recognise that specific counter-terrorism powers are necessary, and acting early to safeguard public safety means that traditional investigative powers are not always sufficient.

‘And prosecutors need offences available to prosecute those who rightly need to be brought to justice, where traditional criminal offences do not fit conduct that rightly calls for punishment.

‘Unlike other criminal offending, we are usually dealing with the intent to cause fear or harm for a terrorist purpose, and punishing the conduct rather than the consequences.

‘There is no conflict between having appropriate laws and powers to protect national security and acting in a way that safeguards human rights, provided we tackle all types of terrorism in the same way and punish the conduct appropriately regardless of which terrorist motivation is behind it.’

When a decision is made to prosecute, the CPS chooses the most appropriate offence or offences for the conduct in question, she said.

‘We use offences such as murder, conspiracy to murder, explosive substances or incitement to hatred, but in many cases conduct needs to be prosecuted using the wide range of terrorism offences available to us,’ Ms Hemming told the conference.

‘These include acts preparatory to terrorism, attending terrorist training, support for a proscribed organisation and distribution of terrorist material.’

Her comments emphasising the importance of counter-terrorism laws come at a time when they are under close scrutiny.

The Government is currently carrying out a review of powers available to authorities after Britain was hit by five attacks in 2017.

On Tuesday Mr Hill QC suggested that Parliament has provided for ‘just about every descriptive action in relation to terrorism, so we should pause before rushing to add yet more offences to the already long list’.

Ms Hemming also detailed how cases emerging from the conflict in Syria and the emergence of Islamic State – also known as Daesh – along with recent attacks, have resulted in a ‘substantial increase’ in the number of prosecutors dealing with terrorism cases.

She said: ‘We have doubled the size of our team and we are still growing. We have a recruitment campaign for more prosecutors being launched shortly to help us deal with further increases.’

In the year ending March 2017, the CPS counter-terrorism division completed 79 trials for terrorism-related offences, a 55% increase on the previous year.

Ms Hemming said that since 2013 there have been a significant number of cases linked to the return of people who travelled to Syria, or were stopped trying to make the journey.

‘However more recently, the increase has been in activity at home,’ she said.

‘Travelling or attempting to travel to Syria is not a crime, but inviting support for Daesh, being a member of a proscribed organisation, or attending a training camp, here or abroad, is an offence.

‘Much of the increase has been from Daesh or similarly inspired activity, but we have also seen an increase in extreme right-wing activity.’

One thought on “UK: “we can’t afford to lose a whole generation of naive young men””

  1. The “we” in this case, are the global corporazis losing slaves.

    Leftist SJWs are mindless entitled little babies who want to continue extorting free stuff from Daddy forever.

    But their laziness isn’t the real problem here – it’s that they are encouraged by politician and media puppets.

    Politicians in Western democracies are all equally corrupt, and therefore so are all their judicial employees.

    Remember when propagandists encouraged all the women to enter the workforce, demanding equality; saying it was “unfair” and men were enslaving them?

    That one scam garnered the business community double the number of available workers in their collective labour pool, and at half the former wages.

    So what if suddenly Westerners had to have less children because all the potential mothers were at work with dad in stead of at home raising them?

    Well, as usual, they are again failing upwards: the lack of replaceable labour to keep their pension pyramid schemes afloat, means they now again “have to” import huge numbers of cheap-labour muslims from their 3rd-world slave-pens to replace us, again doubling the number of workers while halving our wages.

    And their pet politicians & media who slander and shame us into Submitting to our replacement get promised big fat pension augments on their director boards.

    Replacing their largest and most easily-cut cost – worker’s salaries – is what’s really behind the globalist corporazi oil-banksters “pity the migrants, you racists!” scam. Always follow the money. And of course the socialist labour union dupes, being in a symbiotic relationship with the globalists, support their own suicide, as of course do their mindless SJW minions.

    Rinse and REPEAT endlessly!
