@ Cleo

Having read the judgement into the murders of Bolas and Tattersall by Scott McDougall i would be flabbergasted if his appeal of self-defence against Bolas was upheld. McDougall claimed that following a heated argument with Bolas,the deceased apparently grabbed a meat cleaver threatening to use it on McDougall who after a struggle managed to take it off Bolas and then proceeded to attack Bolas inflicting horrific wounds that killed him.He then attacked Tattersall with the same sort of ferocity ending her life.

While his claim of self-defence is specifically against Bolas the autopsy revealed that both the deceased suffered similar injuries of a horrific nature and in my opinion this fact alone should negate any claim of self-defence.Given there were no witnesses to this horrific crime,clearly it would be advantageous for McDougall to paint a distorted picture of what transpired.He,in my assessment,was correctly found guilty of two counts of murder and should rot in prison.

Rebecca deserved what she got, why on earth would she have a knife on her, to stab the poor woman after goading her whist the victim was in the chicken shop. If she has mental health issues, it’s from all the drugs she has taken over the years, no one made her take the drugs, or stuck a needle in her arm, she did that herself, I saw her smash my car window, when she was a skanky drugo, all I can say is thank god she didn’t get her appeal. Sucko!

Makes me have hope that McDougall (Monster) doesn’t get his appeal accepted, I ready don’t know why they waste the courts and taxpayers money, oh yes I do, the greedy people who are their defenders in court, their just like car salesman, when their are monsters like McDougall, they rub their hands together, no doubt about his conviction, he should be locked up and the key thrown away. I often wonder if he should get the death penalty, like Chinese torture.

Massey’s chance of having her appeal upheld on the basis of self-defence was buckley’s and none.I would describe both Massey and Booshand(dec) as being farked up aggressive low life junkies who,although once friends,had a falling out(probably over heroin) and hated each so immensely that they literally wanted to kill each other.The only unfortunate scenario was that they didn’t both have flick blades.

If my dog decides to attack a poodle or attack a person the dog will be destroyed why should humans be any different??? Really any violent criminal who re-offends by committing another violent crime should also be put down!!!

The keyboard warrior in me wants to agree. Then reality steps in and says this logic must be flawed.
But I’m buggered if I can see what that flaw is :-\

You’ve got lot of work to do before unseating the Troll In Residence, but do carry on…

Imagine a world without violent, murderous criminals, now all thats left is to get rid of the people who oppose capital punishment! Lol

Does the irony of your last sentence not smack you fair in the gob?

Anyone know the poem “Evidently Chicken Town” by John Cooper Clarke? Try reading the judgement and NOT thinking about it. 🙂

That worked a treat, I’ll have his voice in my head all day now…

…this relationship between the culprit and the victim is so entwined I’ve formed an opinion that the public should just back off, as there just isn’t any room for outsiders, other than the law, to fit in.

Not anymore. One half of that relationship is literally dead.
