    Angry What the hell is this country coming too?

    THIS should have been sorted in 12 Hours not 12 Months.

    It looks to me like Total incompetency within the Police, matched by total incompetency within the Judiciary.

    Maybe the Justice Minister could bang the table and demand to know why it has taken so long before an intelligent Judge was found to deal with the matter appropriately.

    Wow, nearly two years...

    That's pretty pathetic.

    October: Jury trial, Crown re-lays charge with eight counts of indecent assault. After the father has given evidence, the father's lawyer applies for him to be discharged saying there is insufficient evidence, and the identity of the complainant in each charge is uncertain. The trial is halted and none of the defence witnesses called. Judge Behrens discharges the father.
    Sounds like someone is out with grudge or something.

    Too much going on in our **** country to say many positive things. Well according to newspapers anyway. Im back to not watching news etc until reporters learn to write properly and can report something nice for a change.

    I am not sure we appreciate how well our country is run m8, that is the issue here.

    OK, we're not perfect (imagine how bloody boring it would be) but we have one of the most stable and accountable political system in the world, our petrol prices compares more than favourably against much bigger economies. Our tax system is one of the fairest. We have first class healthcare system - much better than most of the bigger countries I have lived in.

    Not to talk about some of the most pure foods, ingredients and wines in the world.

    All in all we are a good bunch of buggers that like a little controversy from time to time, but we pull up together when the need arises.

    We have it sweet.

    Never quite sure why it is assumed that perfection is boring.

    I was being sarcastic, but I still disagree, this country could be run hell of a lot better.

    Interesting that it was a female detective who refused to interview witnesses who disagreed with her point of view. In my view she should be back on street patrol and not a detective for her behaviour there.

    Globe if you don't like B.M.'s post just stay away from them as you are getting boring always being negative about them.

    Michael in response to your well thought out comment, the chap to whom you refer is unable to make other than coruscating remarks, it is in his nature.
