Does Anyone Care About The Victim?

Seems in the eyes of the Australian judicial system (or in this case, Victorian County Court judge Marilyn Harbison) accountability goes out the window if you are cross dressing p-plate driver. Jayke Baldwin (21) avoided a three year jail sentence after losing control of his car and killing his girlfriend because the judge believed he’d be subjected to bullying in jail because of his cross dressing  effeminate ways. Oh give me a break , the  next thing we’ll know, judges will  be refusing to jail murderers because they could pose a threat to other inmates. Baldwin was speeding when he lost control of his car and hit a tree. His  girlfriend, Melissa Neylon, died when she was thrown from the vehicle and it ended up landing on her.

Psst When you make exceptions for one person it makes it so easy for lawyers to argue the same circumstances for others, thus our pathetically watered down legal system.

Cultural Divide

Korean man avoids jail because of cultural differences OMG, has the world gone completely mad? A Korean man living in Brisbane, Australia has avoided a jail sentence, after beating up his teenage sister-in-law, thanks to “cultural differences”. Despite the judge describing the offences as “horrendeous” the court decided to sentence him to a suspended 9 months jail term. The man, who can not be named, was facing 7 assault charges which included hitting the girl with a metal vacuum cleaner pipe and a mop handle because she failed to do her homework properly. He also threatened to kill her by tying her to a rock and throwing her into a dam. Hmm, because of the “unique” circumstances which included “cultural differences” he walks away a free man. Whatever country you happen to be living in  you are under the laws of  THAT land for goodness sakes! Well, you would think!

Psst I guess the “cultural differences” include not giving two hoots about a young female!
