Eighty-three percent disagreed or strongly disagreed that the system is safe for victims, while 77 percent disagreed or strongly disagreed that victims’ views, concerns and needs are listened to during the justice process.

The Government seems to think the real victims of the justice system are the prisoners and desperately wants to have fewer criminals in prison.
But the real victims are the ones who say the justice system is failing them. To have four out of five victims say the system doesn’t give them enough info, doesn’t make them feel safe and that they are ignored is a terrible indictment.
