North Canberra Rapist Under Arrest?

By johnboy 10 March 2006 3

Nothing online yet, but media are reporting the police have arrested a man in relation to the north canberra serial rapes and break-ins.

Good news!

UPDATED: The Canberra Times has the story online now, as does the ABC.

FURTHER UPDATE: The Canberra Times is now reporting that Shaun Michael Burke, 30, unemployed and of Macquarie, has been charged in relation to some of these matters.

That’s great news, some of my close friends live in Cook / Macquarie.

Does remind me a bit of this snippet from Bret Christian in Friday’s Crikey though:

To the detriment of the accused, this contamination also happens with impunity when police comment publicly on cases, parade alleged miscreants for the cameras and ventilate the strongest elements of the prosecution case in pre-trial court hearings.
While the most prejudicial act police can perform is to charge someone. Just recall your gut reaction to the times when police have announced they have arrested a suspect for a notorious crime: “phew, they’ve caught the bastard,” you say, forgetting for a moment the presumption of innocence.
