In The Clear

Another day, another set of paedophiles who can get away with it:

A TEACHER who indecently dealt with a Northern Territory student will not serve any more time behind bars after winning an appeal for a fully-suspended sentence.
In slashing Paul Incani's sentence, Justice Dean Mildren accused the victim of being 'dramatic' in her impact statement, saying she was reacting as "one would normally expect" to a "romantic" break-up. Link.

Mildren said sending intimate text messages to a 15 year old wasn't a "planned and sustained seduction" as the original magistrate had found. He said she was as willing as he was.

And he excused Incani disguising the girl so he could 'dry hump' her on a lakeshore as being probably because he "must have known" their relationship was "foolish and improper".

Mildren thus recognises Incani's recognition of his commission of a crime but then sounds more like his defence lawyer:

"(He) was very much in love with the child and wanted to meet her in a semi-private fashion," Justice Mildren said.

A TEACHER who put on a strip show for a group of 15-year-olds has kept her job... “I was forced to give the German teacher a warning, but I will not dismiss her because she is a valuable teacher for our institution,” said (Hungarian school principal) Sandor Rozman.

The girl's mother today said she often saw them "cuddling'', and that she repeatedly had to ask them to keep the door open when they were in her daughter's bedroom.
So why didn't mum do anything about her 14 year old daughter being seduced by a lesbian paedophile?

...she did not tell police of her concerns as she had no evidence...
How much evidence do you need? Plenty, apparently, when ones child is being groomed, seduced, perverted and raped by a member of one of modern society's holy orders.

And, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, just when is the Education Industry going to apologise for its appalling record of institutionalised sexual abuse of children?

Voluptua Sews

One initially felt sorry for Fawlty Towers actor Andrew Sachs and his granddaughter Georgina Baillie when a pair of radio 'comedians' left messages on the actor's answering machine claiming one had had sex with her:

Ross and Brand left a series of obscene messages on the answering machine when they could not reach Mr Sachs, 78, for a pre-arranged phone interview. Each message, aired on October 18 after senior producers authorised the programme for broadcast, contained lewd jibes about how Brand he had slept with Ms Bailie.
It seemed like the kind of moronic prank afflicting FM radio in Australia.

However, one isn't sorry any more:

Ms Bailie, a burlesque performer known as Voluptua, confirmed she slept with him three times in late 2006 but said: "It was never going to be a serious relationship but I felt I could trust him as a friend. I feel utterly exposed and betrayed.

"What happened between us was supposed to be private but he is clearly no gentleman. What girl would ever want to have to tell their granddad who she slept with? He hasn't asked me about it because he is too much of a gentleman – unlike Russell Brand."

She added: "It was bad enough that they recorded these things on my grand-father's answer machine but astonishing the BBC saw fit to broadcast it when they could have stopped it."
If you don't want your grandfather to be upset by your behaviour, don't behave that way.

Selective Forgiveness

A single Christian minister goes bad and all Christians are nutters.

A Muslim cleric wants to add to his 12 year old wife with a seven year old one and:

Nearly 90 per cent of Indonesia's 234 million people are Muslim, most of whom practise a moderate strain of the religion.

Imagine All Those People...

Texas has 10 murders lined up for execution this month and there's lots of talk about frustrated anti-death penalty activists here - not a lot of talk about the killers' victims.

Just executed Joseph Ries and a co-defendant broke into the residence of a 64-year old man who was asleep and shot him in the head, took his car and later pawned his property. Try imagining the victim was your grandfather.

Number Two on the list is Bobby Woods who sexually assaulted an 11 year old girl, then abducted her and her 9-year-old brother, severely beat the 9-year-old boy about the head, resulting in serious injury, and cut the throat of the girl, killing her. Imagine it was your daughter.

Eric Nenno is number 3. He lured a seven-year-old girl to his home, choked her to death when she began to cry then raped her repeatedly and hid her nude body in his attic. Imagine she was your granddaughter.

Gregory Wright (4) broke into a woman's home, stabbed her to death then stole her property, leaving in her car. Imagine she was your mother.

Crack addict Elkie Taylor (5) strangled 65-year-old mentally ill Otis Flake to death so he and an accomplice could rob his home. Flake was found with his hands tied behind his back with white plastic tubing, his feet tied together with a coat hanger, and a T-shirt and two coat hangers wrapped around his throat. Imagine he was your father. Taylor boasted of an earlier robbery-murder of an elderly man who was found with an apron and a coat hanger wrapped around his neck. Imagine he was your uncle.

Number 6 George Whitaker's girlfriend left him because of his abusive behaviour. He drove to her home, shot her mother, pistol whipped her five-year-old daughter and fatally shot his girlfriend's sister in the head. Imagine she was your daughter.

Denard Manns (7) entered a 26 year old woman's home, sexually assaulted her then shot her in the head and chest. He then stole her credit cards, cash and car. Imagine she was your sister.

Eric Cathey is number 8. He and several others abducted Christina Castillo and attempted to force her to tell them about her boyfriend's drug and money dealings. She refused to tell them anything so they shot her three times in the head. Imagine she was your daughter.

Rogelio Cannady (9) made history as the first Texas prison inmate to be prosecuted under a 1993 statute allowing the death penalty if an offender is serving 99 years or life as a result of previous murder convictions. His victim was another prisoner in a medium custody unit. Cannady beat him with a steel lock attached to a belt and kicked him repeatedly in the head with steel-toed boots. Imagine he was your father.

At number 10 is Robert Hudson who stabbed a woman 7 times and slashed her 9 year old son's throat when he tried to protect her. Imagine she was your mother.

These are heinous crimes committed by evil people. All have been in prison a decade or more exhausting an extensive appeals system.

The only frustrating thing about them is that they weren't executed a whole lot earlier.

Pally With Terrorists

No, not that guy. These guys - a group of Gold Coast whale watching tour companies and recent entry into the market, the giant Sea World tourist park.

Until now, Sea World has run a respectable marine research and animal rescue program on top of their behemoth tourist attraction. Their recent entry into the whale watching market must have sent tremors through the other operators who are now banding with them in a whale watching day that's giving aid and comfort to a terrorist organisation - Sea Shepherd.

The rag-tag band likes to call itself 'pirates of compassion' but they're simply pirates, led by a self-aggrandising criminal in 'Captain' Paul Watson. No matter how worthy their espoused cause - and one doubts their sincerity somewhat severely - they act illegally.

Gold Coast companies Australian Whale Watching, Spirit of the Gold Coast, Tall Ships, Whales in Paradise and Sea World Whale Watching need to remember that two wrongs don't make a right.

They also need to appreciate that locals who receive visitors often decide what attractions to show them - and Nora and I won't be showing them Tall Ships or Sea World again as we have before. If they ask for such attractions, we'll inform our visitors of their affiliations and, if they still want to go, they can go by themselves. We won't be boosting their numbers again.

Who said one person can't make a difference?
