Description of this Book

Garth McVicar is the quintessential Kiwi battler. A cow-cocky from the Hawke's Bay and a dedicated family man, he - like many New Zealanders - noticed an alarming increase in violent crime. Garth took it upon himself to ask the hard questions of the legislators, demanding fairness and honesty in criminal sentencing, and ultimately be the voice for the many silent victims of crime in New Zealand. Justice is his story, and that of the Sensible Sentencing Trust: its creation, history, highlights and lowlights, successes and failures. Peppered with details of many real-world, high-profile cases, it cuts to the heart of the issues that affect all New Zealanders. 'I was taught that we are meant to leave the country better than we found it - I think my generation has a responsibility to ensure the next inherits a much better, safer society.' - Garth McVicar.
