狗盗窃

狗向上看

Background

The theft of a pet can have a devastating impact on its owners, who love and treat their dogs as members of their family. Emotional impacts that owners of stolen dogs have reported include depression, poor mental health, breakdown in social lives, and even marriage breakdown. It is only right that sentencing for criminals that target dog owners face punishment that reflects the harm of their actions, rather than a minimal community order or small fine.

目前的立法

England and Wales
  • 目前,判刑理事会将盗窃行为1968年“盗窃行为”分为四个不同的违规类别,范围从四分之一(价值500英镑的赃物,对受害者或其他人的重大额外损害)高达一款(货物)www.w88.com偷来的价值100,000英镑或以上或高价值,对受害者或其他人造成了重要额外的伤害)
  • 在这一指导下,盗窃的最大判决是七年的监禁。然而,由于狗的财务价值相对较低,宠物盗窃句通常更低
  • 在法律的眼中,狗被认为是无生命的物体 - 与电视和手机等财产的方式相同,因此不会完全反映宠物的情绪价值
  • 法院需要遵循判刑理事会发布的相关指南,该指南最近于2016年2月最新

Northern Ireland
  • 在北爱尔兰,一个犯有盗窃罪的人可以收到最多十年的监禁。但是,盗窃典型的判决范围一般在社区命令之间变化到六个月的监护权
  • 虽然判决立法框架的责任在于,独立法官决定单个判决,但必须考虑加剧因素,包括损失价值和对受害者和其他人的影响www.w88.com
  • Similarly to England and Wales, pets are currently classed as property when stolen

苏格兰
  • In 2019, the Scottish Government legislated for a presumption against use of short prison sentences – 12 months or less – as a means to increase the use of more effective methods of addressing offending and rehabilitation. Such measures used by judges include community payback orders
  • 苏格兰量刑委员会打算在完全监测和审查新立法在实践中发出有关盗窃判决的指导方针

狗窝俱乐部的立场

  • 狗窝俱乐部believes that longer sentences for those guilty of stealing pets are required across the UK. We believe that current legislation fails to take into account dogs’ sentience, their role within their family, and the devastating emotional impact of their loss. Classing pet theft as a specific crime, and subsequently amending sentencing guidelines, will ensure sentences more accurately reflect the negative impacts of pet theft
  • 关于宠物盗窃的更透明数据,例如犯罪,逮捕和定罪的数量将突出问题的真实程度和严重性,并导致更多的狗与他们的业主重聚
  • 我们非常鼓励狗主人负责任地行事,并采取必要的预防措施来保护他们的狗免受盗贼免受小偷,包括微耕,完全确保他们的财产和花园,而不是在公共场所或在公共场所留下无人监督的狗,并向警方报告任何可疑活动

Attending the surgery of your Member of Parliament at Westminster (MP), Member of Scottish Parliament (MSP), Welsh Assembly Member (AM), or Northern Ireland Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) will be the most powerful way of making them aware of pressing canine issues, enabling them to be taken up in parliament much more efficiently.

成功的五个步骤

  1. 准备是关键。Make a list of questions/topic areas that you want to discuss with your parliamentary representative. Go armed with facts and figures to support your argument. You should also take a notepad and pen to write down any important points for reference
  2. Be direct.介绍自己,你在那里讨论。说明您的疑虑,请反驳他们可能产生的任何反对点。不要变得情绪化 - 你将通过平静和合理的平静和合理作出更强的争论
  3. Listen and respond constructively.一旦您完成了职位,请允许您的MP / MSP / AM / MLA向您展示他/她/她。仔细聆听协议和分歧的领域,始终是积极的,并试图提出将探讨他们个人观点而不是党的问题
  4. 注意时间。坚持下问题并尽量不要陷入一般性辩论 - 您将与他/她有一定的时间,并且必须确保您在您希望的所有积分中达成一定的时间
  5. At the end of the meeting and beyond…Thank them for the meeting, summarise your discussion and outline the steps you can take going forward. Let them know that they can contact you in the future to discuss the issue further.
Follow up the meeting by writing a thank you letter, summarising your visit and any actions that your MP/MSP/AM/MLA has offered to take. You could also contact them again after a month to see what progress has been made. This will also help to keep the issue fresh in their mind.
