Another perfect example of the correctional and justice system working in Victoria.
What a ridiculous sentence
I am against vigilante justice but understand how it occurs.

How can animals like this be given such ridiculous sentences?

12 years? For doing things that are so heinous they can't be described in the judgement?
Stupid ****ing "justice" system makes me sick.

I am usually a left wing tree hugging hippy who believes in restorative and correctional justice.
But it sounds like this poor excuse for a human being deserves to be in gaol for the rest of his life. Hopefully taking some of what he gave out.
Sick. sick. sick.

Yes, thanks so much for putting us in the position of having what might be the most dangerous man in the state at present free to commit further crimes against women and men.
Why does this happen?
Posted 28 February 2013 - 10:05 AM
Wow. Just wow. Speechless.

Damn, I wish I could tardis him back to the days of a posse...
Save me Doctor!

It is actions like this that make me want to encourage vigilante groups. Unbelievable

I was horrified to read this. I'm a huge believer in rehabilitation and people being free to live their lives without judgment after serving their sentences.
But, this man was released EARLY and didn't even serve his full sentence after committing acts so heinous the judge would not repeat them.
Just speechless that this could happen.

Holy cow ... why was he only given 12 years and why was he released?
Posted 28 February 2013 - 11:08 AM
This freak is beyond rehabilitation..... I mean "He reportedly broke his own fingers on a desk in an interview room to avoid finger printing."
Raped and beat a woman for 8 months until he got arrested??? Anyone care to think what would've happened to this woman if he had NOT been arrested??/ He could add manslaughter to his list of "offenses".
Seeing as he has contacts in Heidelberg and Dandenong, the cops will be looking there first and this guy will know that. So I doubt he'll show up in those area's from now on.
God knows where he is right now. Victoria? NSW? SA?
Posted 28 February 2013 - 11:26 AM
I cannot believe he was only jailed for 12 years originally. What kind of Judge gives that ruling on offenses that he refuses to reveal because they are so truly awful?!?!
I hope he is captured very quickly and sent back to gaol for much, much longer than the maximum 5 years it stated in the article.
Posted 28 February 2013 - 04:44 PM
he is one person who should never ever have been allowed out of gaol for any reason whatsoever. Sickening & hope he is caught asap
Posted 28 February 2013 - 07:59 PM
OMG...so 'the most violent man in victoria' has been living somewhere amongst us after all that he has been convicted of doing???? What the hell....how is the justice system working in keeping the innocent safe. What a disgrace.
Now the authorities are running around like headless chooks wasting more tax payers money to put him back where he should never have come out from in the first place.
Shame to the justice system in this case.
Posted 28 February 2013 - 10:33 PM
I know this man. He was vile and evil even as a school child.
Posted 01 March 2013 - 08:09 PM
To show how wacky it is this man got the same length of gaol time in his sentencehttp://www.smh.com.au/nsw/sydney-conman-wh...0301-2faz1.html
I am not saying that fraud and white collar crime should be taken less seriously, this man deserves his sentence.
But when you compare him to the monster on the loose the mind boggles that both qualified for the same 'time'.
Cynical part of me thinks that people involved in the judiciary system are more concerned with their investment portfolios and deem it needing more protection than the wider communities safety, especially woman's safety.

The judiciary are limited by the maximum sentences. However I'm sure that if he was given maximum sentences to be served consecutively, he could have been put away until he was an old man.
Having had some professional experience in this area, I do believe that people like this guy cannot be rehabilitated. There's no point in letting them out because they will always reoffend. And the offences they will potentially (most likely) commit are not worth risking.
Posted 01 March 2013 - 08:42 PM
Am on my phone and not easily able to post links but abc.net.au is reporting that right now police are surrounding a house in the northern suburbs, where he is believed to be. That's the good news.
The bad news (well for me) is that we live in the same general area, so I am paranoidly checking doors and latches and won't feel 100% safe until I read that he is back in custody ....
It's horrible to consider how light his sentencing and release monitoring appears to have been compared to what his crimes were.
Posted 01 March 2013 - 08:54 PM
So glad to hear this.
Posted 01 March 2013 - 09:05 PM
Here is the link to latest information about him being located. http://m.theage.com.au/victoria/police-loc...0301-2f9yg.html

Seems they are trying to negotiate a peaceful surrender. Shame really. I, for one, would not be sorry to see them "accidentally" shoot him dead as they storm the building.

I'm all for rehabilitating people BUT some criminals IMO, forfeit the right to live freely in our society - ever again.
"Some acts were so vile that they have never been reported publicly."
I do believe there should be such a prison where people, such as this person, are locked away till their last breath.
