Rebecca Massey gets 10 years without parole

By johnboy 28 July 2011 52

The ABC reports that Rebecca Anne Massey has been sentenced to 16 years in prison (10 without parole) for carving up Elizabeth Booshand outside the Charnwood charcoal chicken in 2008.

Justice Gray said he had to mark the community’s abhorrence with the taking of life but also indicated Massey had good prospects for rehabilitation.

I immediately dropped into a high-energy roflcopter when I saw the words ‘Massey’ and ‘rehabilitaiton’ in the same sentence.

She is a “Massey” by marriage only…and has been divorced for many years…!!!!
If you don’t know the Massey’s …then i suggest you shut up!
How dare any of you criticise…?! If one of your own family members committed a crime does that mean you should all be punished and judged?!! Grow up morons!

As for already serving 3 years..that’ is not correct either…she served 12 months only…and let’s not forget she has an innocent little boy who has had his whole life turned upside down…Show some compassion you judgemental scum!
I know the family very well….and will continue to support and love them…! you halfwits can think what you like….all righteous and pompous…Shame on you!
Sterilize them? Morons!!!!
Drug addiction is very real and the cause of this unfortunate situation….and I can hear all the do-gooders and know-it-alls condemning and criticizing this as well..,.It is an illness ….just like anything else!

Now we got us a show!

+1 !!! someone pass me the popcorn.

my personal favourite line in the sentence being handed down was where massey was quoted as feeling ripped off and felt she had wasted 13 or 14 years of her life. at least she got the choice to waste her life, unlike her dead victim.

“This is a crime that I assess towards the lower end of the crime of murder”

If you’re looking for 1 sentence that encapsulates how far out of touch with reality the ACT judiciary is you just got it.

I mean the upper end involves what? Recklessly or deliberately killing someone. Riddle me the difference oh eminent Justice

I am looking for a sentence that will satisfy everyone in the world. But for the mean time, ten years is a minimum term here. Half the Australian life sentence is not too bad. The case on the whole is pretty sad and going to be hardest for the children. I reckon ACT is bout in line with the rest. And with much better roads.

An challenge to the coviction for going stabby stabby has begun according to the ABC.

She is using the “even people who carry knives and start $hit outside the takeaway can later get scared and push while forgetting they have a knife in their hand” defence.

lol holy shiznat. Wasn’t it a bunch of stabs? She forgot she had a knife in her hand, and pushed repeatedly?

We might get something like Florida’s “Stand your ground law” but we will call it “Masseys law”. It will give anyone the right to bear arms within the vicinity of any takeaway, supermarket or bottleshop in Charnwood.

“I invoke the right of Masseys law, your honour. She made me feel threatened and hungry. I saw how she was eyeing my chips and I knew that she was going to go for my scallops so I stabbed her until the percieved danger went away!”

You mention a poor innocent child whose life is turned upside down.
I agree we should be concerned – Massey chose to act in a way that resulted in those problems for that little boy. She should be punished for child abuse, and then sterilised so she doesn’t inflict that same upheaval on any more little children.

As far as the drug addiction/illness goes – how did she catch “drug addiction”? Any ideas?

Drug addiction is very real and the cause of this unfortunate situation….

As a good family friend who loves and supports them, I sincerely hope you will take a hand in the innocent child’s upbringing. You presumably will explain to them the evils of drugs and property crime, and that the bad decisions on their mothers part has resulted in the death of a woman and the absence of their mother for a large part of their childhood.
