    Oh really. Glad you're not my criminal lawyer then.

    Juries are supposed to base their decision on the evidence given - which is not always the full evidence or even correct evidence - as the planting of evidence in the Thomas case as shown.

    And Juries are known to make decisions based on whatever they're having for tea sometimes anyway....

    He's been found not guilty, the evidence points to someone else and that person had the motive.

    Not to mention the crown story that he murdered the family and then went on a paper round before murdering his father seems an unlikely scenario (and there is evidence it didn't happen that way).

    It was always a weak case and the Police bungled it, he should be paid compensation.

    "Not Guilty" and "Acquittal" ARE NOT the same thing.

    Stop trying to justify one by using the other.

    Man I love it how some people who were not actually there knows exactly what happened.

    This YOUR song down to a note http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/That+s+W...d/1dxWVf?src=5

    ANY good lawyer can take the truth or what ever evidence is available and bend it suit their needs. And we all know how the media couldn't report anything with accuracy unless its makes a good story.

    Please just stick to the facts as they happened in the court.

    One of the Actions the Cops made, and it was very appropriate for them at the time ,is they destroyed evidence containing DNA that may have proven David Bain didn't actually do it.

    Quoting an article, and its easy to find videos of the same:
    Evidence which could now be DNA tested and may have proven David Bain's innocence was destroyed by police 1996, defence counsel told the High Court at Christchurch on Tuesday.

    Detective Senior Sergeant James Doyle, who was second in charge of the investigation, admitted that some samples had been destroyed by his order in January 1996, before the outcome of a Privy Council appeal six months later. -----------Doyle told the court he had ordered the destruction of three exhibits from Robin Bain. Two skin samples from his hands; two packets of fingernail scrapings; two smear and slide traces of blood on his left hand-----------We will never know and can never know whether that was Stephen's or Laniet's blood, so cannot prove David's innocence now," says Reed.

    He says that the evidence could have been incriminating against Robin Bain.
    Cant have the cops being proven wrong can we.

    Not Guilty" and "Acquittal" ARE NOT the same thing.
    It means
    Acquittal, a criminal law term, means a person is found not guilty of a crime, but it doesn't necessarily mean she's innocent. In some situations, it simply means that a prosecutor can't establish guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. In a criminal trial, a defendant may be acquitted if the prosecution can't produce enough evidence to prove guilt.
    Still stand by what I posted before -- Its amazing how some people who were not actually there know exactly what happened. esp when even the police dont know for sure.

    I wish people would stop blaming the feld polezei, they charged him with murder and a jury found him guilty. They didn't plant evidence like they did with Arthur Thomas and the feld polezei didnt murder the family.
    If you clowns want to believe the paper round thing you have serious cognitive skills.

    Then at a later date, on an appeal, another jury - not guilty - Acquitted of the crimes.

    A defendant may be acquitted if the prosecution can't produce enough evidence to prove guilt.

    Heard on the radio today by the guy with amnesia when it suits , that any payout may take till later this year.

    If Bain did it or not --- there's only a few people who actually know for sure, some are dead, so they can't say, and David Bain.
    Anyone can read or listen to the news and come to their own conclusion, if its correct or not who knows for sure (unless they were actually there)

    Either way since hes been acquitted of the crime, if he gets compensated the govt have to pay, and its already cost the tax payer Millions.

    Let me get this straight.

    Are you’re saying it is OK to destroy evidence that may endanger your case, but not OK to plant evidence to enhance your case.

    Interesting cognitively.

    Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.
