Absurd to lock up peace campaigner

THE jailing of peace campaigner Maya Evans demonstrates how ridiculous our judicial system is.

Our jails are bursting at the seams.

Prisons should be for those from whom society needs protecting, not a peace-loving person whose actions are prompted by conscience.

The costs involved in processing Ms Evans through the courts and then incarcerating her must be huge.

Surely society could find a better way to spend taxpayers’ money?

We need more principled people like Maya Evans in society and less people placed in prison pointlessly.
