Re: Cameron Bell’s article It couldn’t have happened to a nicer bloke.

It must take a highly qualified legal mind to present a judgement that a headbuttee is the person responsible for the headbutt, rather than the headbutter.

And Mr Bell, if you are indeed a witness the debilitating effects of violence on victims, the court of public opinion would not consider you to be an expert witness.

I guess that this is why the decisions of some of our learned judicial minds are at odds with normal principles of honesty and fairness.

We get the judicial system we deserve if we are not prepared to stand up to this bullying from the legal profession.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
