Ainslie Neglect Mother Bailed by the Supreme Court

By Headbonius 15 August 2008 46

The Canberra Times today reports that Supreme Court Justice Refshauge after having listened to the cogent arguments by defence and prosecution for keeping the wayward mother in custody or releasing her has decided in his mercy to grant her bail.

Now this is the funny part… She has been released on the condition that one of her supporters has given her employment as a house cleaner!

I recall seeing some photos published in the paper of the state of her government provided home in Ainslie… Jeebus!

There were quite a few RA contributors who jumped on the “Support the Mother” campaign, now is your chance to offer some real support. Find out who has employed her and get her in to weave the same cleaning magic on your home as she did on her own. With her current drug test results being positive to Methamphetamine use I suggest you lock up your valuables and feel good about actually putting your money where your mouth is.

What’s Your opinion?

Journo’s might make a living out of publishing unfounded rumors to fuel speculation and grab attention, but that still doesn’t change Proud Local’s professional responsibility. Rumors such as this are likely to have come about during the course of his, or someone else in the AFP’s duties. They have a responsibility not to release information about a person without substantial evidence and then only within official media releases.

Before you start wailing about the individuals rights of police officers and freedom of speech, you should remember that information like this is kept private until an official media release is given for a reason. Police Officers deal with people’s lives. They usually only become involved at the lower point of those lives. Just like Doctors and their patients, police officers have a responsibility for the rights of an individual when dealing with the state or an organization. I’ve worked as a disability worker before and I have a responsibility not to identify clients and their conditions publicly. It may not be the most ‘serious’ job in the world, but I am still going to honor that responsibility.

Proud Local is effectively compromising this young man’s rights by spreading stories about this person that may be considered substantial due to his professional position, regardless if they are. This is a gross abuse of power, in my opinion. Not to mention, by making this information public (this is a public forum), he is potentially hindering investigations by other officers. I think Proud Local should seriously consider his comments and how they impact on him professionally. I wonder what the AFP would think if they saw this thread.

This woman is an oxygen thief. Please deny her oxygen.

I dont consider the location where a rumour may have been heard to be that important really. This site is based upon the fundamental concept of bringing news to Canberrans – often what starts as a rumour ends up being a little more than an unsubstantiated opinion.

Pretty much the same thing that happens every day at any given journalists desk – they have to sort the wheat from the chaff.

I’m sure Proud Local will make his own assumptions as to when to post, rather than take guidance from any other poster.

DMD,

I’ll check the rumours with a source close to the action, so to speak…
