Another bad case for the Scouts

By johnboy - 15 October 2008 68

The ABC has a bad story for the local Scouting movement with a 21 year old Banks man fronting the court “facing a number of charges including five counts of sexual intercourse with a person under the age of 16 and two of possessing child pornography”

Apparently he met the girls through a scouts group.

What’s Your opinion?

Not guilty yet Whatsup…

So let’s say “if found guilty, in my opinion, a sicko” eh?

But let us not -pre-judge the case either.

Oh definatly not Johnboy, I mean which one of us is the jury… **looks around**

Not judging them but absolutely have a perception of the person involved.
Like you associate theiving with drugs and criminals – I can say i’m not in that boat nor have ever been facing charges to the same – so I can say in that case i’m an upstanding citizen. If I was never involved in those sort of activities I would never be associated and percieved on that basis. If you know where I’m trying to pull at.

It could also be that he is being committed for trial. Just FYI Madman under our criminal justice system you are found, not charged, guilty and then sentenced. Not the other way round. Hope that clears things up.

Oh, and your Troublemaker status gives you more credibility does it ?

Anyone found with Child Pornography in their possession is a sicko in my opinion.

OK Whatsup – you seem so informed about the case how about you give us a run down on the facts which assisted you in determing that the acussed is a “sicko”?

I guess you know everything then? above the judge are we???

Haven’t you heard of a thing called perception – its what Whatsup perceived, when anyone see’s something about child abuse or child pornography or acts of sexual discretion with a child then what is everyone thinking – you’re not going to think they’re the nicest and gentle person of society, and if you do then join the sicko!

I believe you don’t know absolutely everything in this case and anything you say is assumption until the judges verdict. And I hope justice will be served.

Given that this case is before the court and the nature of the matter I would urge great restraint and caution in discussing the matter. I would encourage the moderator to take relevant responsible action in the comments section of this article.

n00b….

I bet you’re just another scout who wants censcorship on anything that is said regarding your association.

This is a right of reply and we discuss anything we wish.

People like you that cry are sickening and you should censor yourself. If you don’t want to read about it then guess what… Don’t come back in to this thread – we won’t hold it against you.
Given that people have opinions and GIVEN this has been ongoing for a while and had alot of media attention, ITS GOING TO BE DISCUSSED – you can’t change the fact, not even with your mindless comments of responsibility… PFT

“He was committed on all charges and is expected to appear in the ACT Supreme Court in a fortnight” to me it sounds like he is getting scentenced and will be charged guilty, then all the scouty people will deny anything and cover it up by sweeping it under the rug with all the other scouts that have been charged the same.

Last warning on abusing other commenters anon.

As for “mindful citizen”, I suggest you address comments to the editorial team via the contact box and not as veiled threats to the general readership.

anon1972 8:13 pm 15 Oct 08

uninformed even

A “Picketer” being an uniformed w@nker….how unusual.

Whatsup 8:01 pm 15 Oct 08

A newbie requesting censorship… how unusual.

Not new news but still reminds us of the sickos that inhabit this chunk of earth we live on.

Madman 6:46 pm 15 Oct 08

This is the same one as just before – the case is still going on I am lead to believe
