What is peoples opinions on these? I've been asked to do one as a result of a burglary.
I think they were introduced when I was overseas so I missed any debate that happened at the time.
My initial reaction is that I'm not keen on the idea.
I understand that the idea is to allow victims feel like they have a say in the process.
But I also like the idea that justice is blind. Should the sentence be different if I'm able to write an articulate emotional letter compared with someone who can't.
