People want to be able to walk down the main street of Canberra without being bashed to death. Get these filth off the streets, and keep them off the streets. there are NO mitigating circumstances.

Sadly, the justice system doesn’t appear to agree … this individual has already been through Bimberi and the Hume Hilton, only to be inflicted on society bigger and better than ever.
Clearly his time in those places wasn’t sufficiently uncomfortable for him to be afraid of being sent back … grrrrrrr.

I’d like to see a minimum of 20 years for both of these pieces of excrement, and their families forced to pay upwards of 1 million dollars compensation to the family of Liang, so that they are ruined for life.

Pointless to levy a fine against career welfare recipients (an assumption I’m prepared to make); there’s no way it ever actually gets paid.

Mandatory withholding againts their Centrelink payments.

Are we making any effort to track down the networks that are turning out groups of damaged kids?

Martin Bryant
Timothy McVeigh
Eric Harris
Dylan Klebold
Seung-Hui Cho
Anders Behring Breivik

Same place as those individuals listed above I guess?

There seem to be the assumption that mitigating circumstances are just lies. They should be ignored. But what of the multitude of accusations you make fun of. Are they followed up? They would seem to chronicle a list of offences against children.

Typical defence lawyers. Rule #1: Always, always try to avoid taking responsibility, whatever avenue the defendant can find to try to prove innocence.

Without a defense counsel there would be no ability to prosecute offenses, System here only works with equal representation. Apart from that, isn’t there something typical about everyone?

I always wonder how the people who defend a lot of the vermin in the courts can sleep at night.

On top of a pile of money, cradling their Porche keys like a baby.

What I meant was, why does a defendant in a murder case ALWAYS plead ‘not guilty’ to murder even when the defendant knows he is in fact guilty of all the elements of murder?

On the other hand, if I was in front of the beak and my lawyer said ‘Oh stuff it, my client is obviously Satan Incarnate and he should be shot at dawn for his crimes” I would be less than thrilled.

It’s not the lawyers fault for doing what our system requires them to do. They would actually be remiss in their duty if they didn’t make their best efforts for their clients.

It’s the clients who are the problem. Without them we would all be a lot better off.

I think these guys might actually be in pretty deep Kimchi.

I’m thinking that pulling a blade on the cops who tried to arrest him in Queanbeyan is a bit of giveaway that young Taylor isn’t exactly a straight arrow.

If the prosecutors can’t make a good case out of what looks like a confession, located murder weapons, and a dob in of the accomplice then the Canberra community might as well just adopt the current British solution, and go all out for rape, pillage and plunder with no regard for the law.

I wonder if the nameless junior hood will be claiming that he is merely an innocent child who strayed from the path of righteousness under the influence of the evil older man who atually did all the bashing and slashing, and it was all his fault yeronner.

Prove innocent?
You don’t really understand how a legal system operates, do you?

Trial proceeds without excessive delay, burden lies with those who accuse rather than those who would deny, prove guilt beyond reasonable doubt, requiring evidence, etc…

I would like it if there was a system something like in the NRL. If you plead not guilty, and you are then found guilty, your sentence is increased. In this case if found guilty I would be happy if they were sentenced to 25 years W.O.O!

There is s system like that in the NRL. If they take the early guilty plea then usually the penalty is less harsh than if they plead not guilty and fail to beat the charge.

“Nah, it wasnt me! He kept attacking my machete so my mate fought him off with a bat”!

Try them as adults and bring back capital punishment as this pair of turds are a very compelling arguement for it!

He was framed…..

It’s the usual first sitting plea of not guilty. They usually wait until the crown brief is together, assess the evidence and then see if they can beat it. If not, a guilty plea before trial, along with the usual mitigating circumstances of poor childhood, drug or alcohol addiction, long toe nails, etc will see a massively reduced sentence.

So we may have the pleasure of this vermins company in the not too distant future again!
