What planet are A.C.T. Supreme Court Judges on?

Just read that his worship Higgins has provided bail to serial car thief, drug user teen for the second time. The fact that he while on bail and i assume disqualified from driving, ran a red light mounted the traffic island and crashed into an innocent punter, sorry allegedly, would i think show that he does not care for the previous requirements of his bail.

Higgins reckons the central question is “how can his behaviour be managed so that he doesn’t create a danger to others?”

Justice Penfold then ups the ante finding no guilt for a bloke who in Decemeber 2010 stabs another after been thrown out of a club, picking a fight and then getting stabby. The Palmer said he accidently stabbed him. I would have thought all this could be avoided if he had not had the knife in his hand when threatening someone. I also wonder how the learned Judge hypothesised it was an accident, a 20 cm gash from front to back of his assailent.

No wonder their is a backlog in the Supreme Court, they are busy thinking of ways to set new precedents and create a legacy because surely their are no previous cases like these decisions

It’s like a f ing comedy show.

I thinks it’s a laugh that these people are called your honour. They don’t deserve anything like it. So they’ve been a good lawyer for a couple of decades or been the registrar of the court for a while (like one was). So what!! With some of these latest decisions they’ve shown they deserve no respect whatsoever.

Whilst I think the Supreme Court is generally extremely soft, in fairness, case number 2 was found not-guilty by a jury.

I wondered where Henry had been. I guess all the sledging must have got to him and he finally manned up and did his duty.

Actually in the Palmer case it was a jury that acquitted him.We would need to read the judgement before coming to a premature conclusion.

As for Tezza providing bail to presumably the ‘germ’ there’s nothing surprising with his decision given his approach to justice.

Saw case #2 in the CT today. A bloke was slashed with a knife by the dude in front of the judge (who else could it have been?) WTF?
I hope the prosecution appeals the bejesus out of this one.
