That's ok. He'll have it better than alot on the outside. A bed, well fed, heating cooling, regular exercise, access to medicine, tv, internet, drugs, alcohol.

One of Anita Cobby's murderers has died in jail. Not a day too soon.

A shame death didn't come to he and his partners in crime decades ago. A *smile*ing outrageously vile act that they carried out against Anita Cobby. Unfathomable brutality.

Agree wholeheartedly - Murphy can rot in hell for eternity. Hopefully the other four will join him soon.

Good, but why does the Hun come out with 'could walk free one day' ?

Did I hear correctly on the radio that the judge made no allowance for Gargasoulas being under the influence of ice?

Please let this standard be applied across the board.

If true L2, needs to precedent in all criminal cases. No excuse because of drug use! Should be prosecuted for that aspect as well.

Just on the bus driver, he was more than "negligent" he was incompetent. This was proven because he ignored 3 signs warning of the low bridge height plus he ignored 2 warning devices before he struck the bridge, Imo he was given the correct penalty.

5 years gaol when no-one was killed is more than 1 punch murderers get, its a manifestly excessive sentence.

Agree. Ridiculous.
Getting off topic, so I've switched this to a more appropriate thread.

I don't agree with a sentence being dependent on the result of a criminal action. If it's criminal the sentence should reflect this.

I'm not suggesting mandatory sentencing but, for example, if a judge jails a driver for killing a pedestrian while texting, jailing should also be an option available to the judge for anyone texting while driving.

Would be a lot of 18-25's in jail.

Don't think age actually comes into this, human factors effect everyone young and old. When the phone rings what happens? Plenty of old farts with mobiles in hand driving too. It's disgraceful.

Ok is this better, when the phone makes a noise such as beep, ring blip, favoirite song etc. Humans will look at it. That is what we do. That is why it makes a noise or lights up. Cops need to enforce the rules it will take time but it worked for seatbelts as eventually it is unacceptable to us.

Shane Robertson, 29, received a 24 year sentence for murdering his partner by smashing her head in with barbells. He has a 19 year non parole period so may be out at age 48 (he’s already served a year).

Wtf? Yet again someone murders someone but only gets 24 years (or possibly less). When will murder get a life sentence?

The belief is that they have to dangle a carrot, offer some sort of chance at redemption in return for rehabilitation. But the victim's family is entitled to believe that's it, shut the book on that *smile*.

Of course the many psychhopaths in jail cannot be reformed, being unable to feel true remorse. They can only learn to avoid the behaviour that landed them in the clink.

Seems like a long sentence by Australian standards.

Fiji - where judges judge and criminals rot.
He might appeal. We shouldn't judge him until every last option is exhausted.
