#NOBAIL for violent offenders in Queensland

This petition had 50,539 supporters
Rebekah Stokes and Anne Stokes started this petition to Annastacia Palaszczuk (Premier of Queensland) and

The Queensland government needs to review and change the way Magistrates grant bail applications to violent offenders.

Today 3 Children's lives have been destroyed and a Mother of 4 killed. The man who killed her (her estranged husband) in a murder-suicide at Pimpama QLD was released on bail a fortnight ago on serious domestic violence charges, which include choking, assault occasioning bodily harm, deprivation of liberty and common assault.

This could have been avoided if the perpetrator had remained in custody, either in jail or in a facility for those with a mental illness.

This is the latest of many examples that Queensland has seen in recent times of bail being granted to dangerous and violent people. As Queenslanders, we should feel safe on our streets, in our homes and we should have faith in our legal system. However, when violent and dangerous people are being granted bail, we are clearly not safe and our legal system is failing all of us!

We want:

  1. A full review into the Queensland bail process
  2. Changes to the law to ensure violent offenders in Queensland are not given bail prior to their day in court.
  3. Place stricter bail conditions for offenders of violence crimes including but not limited to Domestic Violence, Alcohol related Violence, Physical violence, Sexual violence and Violence against Children

Please sign and share so those in government make the appropriate changes to the law to ensure violent offenders in Queensland are not given bail prior to their day in court. You can help save a life!
