Kingston Murder Accused Not Guilty

By johnboy 28 February 2011 63

The ABC is reporting that the woman accused of the Kingston murder two years ago has been found not guilty, having successfully argued self defence before Chief Justice Terence Higgins.

It’s a shame in our system young Cameron Anderson was not represented.

Lets take a step back here,
I agree that judges are way too soft on people whom are actually guilty. But this woman has proven in a court of law that the act was in self defence.

If she was guilty, and was then given a slap on the wrist, then sure, demand her blood. But also keep in mind, not everyone who goes infront of the courts are infact guilty. (ourts are pretty much a safeguard so that innocent people don’t get punished.

Self defence based on one side of the story only.

Plus evidence of forced sexual intercourse.

Look,
i’ve read the judgement and understand how Higgins came up with his decision. There were however many inconsistencies in this case and the stories told by many witnesses that don’t fit.
As I said in the other thread on the the Russell Field case, I think that the pendulum has swung too far in self defence cases.
If you can show that you are paranoid enough, then you can employ this defence.

AT the end of the day she murdered someone, that is no wild conclusion.

There’s just no helping some people, is there?
