A bit like crocodile attacks in the Northern Territory it hardly seems worth reporting when the ACT Judiciary decides that a miscreant is just mis-understood.
The ABC has the latest effort whereby Peter John Gibson, of Ainslie has been found not guilty of “assaulting his wife, his sister-in-law and a police officer who arrived on the scene and subdued him with capsicum spray”. Oh, and he also bit a dog.
The reason for the not guilty verdict from Justice Terry Connolly? Peter was found to be suffering a psychotic episode at the time.
Frankly I feel safer already.
