I can see a Massey R on the CR list for Thursday.

Anyone able to tell me what that means?

Looks like she can’t wait for the Magistrates Court, I’ll bet she is going to have a winge to nice Judges at the Supreme Court about her “Innocence”.

Mælinar – *spoiler alert* I’ve seen S04E13 said :

2 contenders for this months award ?

The tapestry of the RiotACT is indeed detailed. I like the woodwork comment Mr Evil, but I’m not so sure about real thinkers, maybe more like wood-lice…

Huhu grubs? 🙂

Yes, I enjoy a strong, robust and stimulating intellectual discourse on the relevant merits of loyalty and respect within the community at large.

No, leave it alone – it’s great when the real thinkers come out of the woodwork! 😉

jb, surely moderation for the last 2 comments??

I get annoyed to see that the comments aren’t really friendly, they seem to be of the same vein as the conder car accident thread. regulars who have cheap shots at each other get warned, why not these 2?

Respekt – It’s what plenty of people are after these days. You get it by bringing a knife to a fist fight or beating up on the elderly or trashing individuals with your mates.

OK Breather. Which Magistrate let Porritt and Westin off their charges?
I’m going to assume that you are addressing me Heavs. Again thanks for your concern for my health and your clear inability to attempt to address any of points which I raised. Perhaps you should consider your reply a bit more carefully and actually attempt to read my comments first. If not and you wish to get into a name calling match, good luck.

Boomacat – I apologise for not using the correct terminology when referring to judges but I do thank you for surmising Heavs argument for me. I actually assumed perhaps foolishly that he would attempt to debate at least one of the points I had raised.

I would like to be the first to congratulate Heavs on his admitting defeat by not addressing the issues.

I think perhaps the comment is directed at the fact that Justices of the Supreme Court try murder charges whereas Magistrates in the Magistrates Court typically try less serious matters such as simple assault, minor theft, and public order offences.

I expect that more generally that the inference being encouraged is that often those whom make more extreme criticisms of the criminal justice system are in fact quite ignorant as to its actual operation. For example, calling lawyers “attorneys”, and other such matters which suggest that the commenter has gathered their knowledge of the criminal justice system from American television court dramas.

But that’s just a guess on my part…

Heavs.

1. Can you please tell me how many MAGISTRATES have found someone not guilty of murder in the last decade? Or even heard a full murder case.

Lets see recently Porritt, Weston, that’s just two off the top of my head but I’m fairly sure there are others. Maybe you could actually have a look yourself rather then demanding answer you are not prepared for. If you have differing information then prove me wrong.

2. Also, can you explain how she is free to walk the streets, taking into account the fact that bail was refused.

According to the Canberra times she did not apply for bail it is something different but I’m sure in a few weeks once the initial heat has warn off she will apply and get granted bail.

3. What gives you the impression this will take ‘years to get to court’? On what do you base this?
Porritt, Eastman, Each took over two years to final ruling.

4. Have you always been a mouth breather or something you’ve learnt to do over time?

Well this comment seems hardly relevant but thanks for the concern for my health.
