It is a pity that when an appeal fails the judge cannot extend the original sentence, in this case to life, ie until she dies, and throw in hard labour and being publicly pilloried beside the rest of her family.

I’m sure there are countries like that somewhere in the world.

The Judgement makes for very depressing reading indeed. I now have images of unkempt, angry bogans yelling and chasing each other over chicken take-away. The sad state of our community.

“Rebecca Massey’s appeal dismissed,” can be interpreted in more ways than one.

Anyone know the poem “Evidently Chicken Town” by John Cooper Clarke? Try reading the judgement and NOT thinking about it. :-)

Indonesia?

That granny who the prosecutor was seeking 15 years, but instead the judge gave her a death sentence. Give him a gun and he will be the judge, jury, and executioner.

There’s seriously something crooked there.

Back OT, this relationship between the culprit and the victim is so entwined I’ve formed an opinion that the public should just back off, as there just isn’t any room for outsiders, other than the law, to fit in.

Nope, just a smart system. If you’re going to waste the court’s time when you’re obviously guilty and have been already convicted but you still insist on trying to get off then there should be repercussions.

Wrong again, they rightfully should be named and shamed. How many Massey’s are in the system? People like them are a menace, intellects of todders and can’t communicate without getting punchy or stabby. The ones who protect, encourage and make excuses for them just add to the problem.

They’re a polyp on the anus of humanity.

No shortage of Massey related news articles going back a few years that’s for sure.

And your opinions differ to mine. I’ll get that out of the way first.

Do you think this Rebecca person goes around stabbing any stranger in the street?
Don’t you think she might have problems, but which she was able to keep away from the public so that she wasn’t a nuisance to the general public?
Don’t you think emotions were running high and that things may not have happened if only?

Having said that, the fact remains that she has committed a crime, and she will do the time.

But I do not believe she is a general menace to society. She has problems, which needs help.
What she doesn’t need is for us to air our opinion without understanding 15 years of her relationship with the victim.

Polyps on anus? Isn’t that just a fact of life?
Are you going to dismiss the existence of hundreds of mentally ill people in our society who have slipped through the safety net?

If you want my opinion on real murderers, I’d be very interested in the case where Liang Zhao was killed while walking home on Northbourne. I’m more than happy to cry for capital punishment based on the outcome of the court case for this.


Police allege Schmidt and the juvenile were drunk and on drugs when they declared they wanted to “beat the shit” out of Asian people just before the murder.

‘She might have problems? Problems?

I’m old. I’ve had problems. I’ve been ripped off, assaulted, insulted, lied to, lied about, gone half mad with anger. But somehow I’ve resisted the urge to try and kill anyone.

She is past the point of charity. Some people just don’t give a shit.

Fortune has it, according to your testimony, you don’t sound like you suffer from problems (mental illness).

Your point?

This waste of oxygen rebecca massey and others alike need to be pulled from the gene pool and exterminated like the vermin they are!!! If my dog decides to attack a poodle or attack a person the dog will be destroyed why should humans be any different??? Really any violent criminal who re-offends by committing another violent crime should also be put down!!!

Imagine a world without violent, murderous criminals, now all thats left is to get rid of the people who oppose capital punishment! Lol
