Australias brutal justice system
Below is about the daughter of two friends of mine who are members of the church where I am currently serving as supply pastor in Arlington, Texas.
Nannette May was brutally beaten, knifed and left for dead in a garage on August 2, 2006.
Karl Heinz Koch, who stalked her, and committed this act, has been able to have his trial post-poned again and again until reaching the magical number of 20 months of incarceration.
On June 16, 2008, he received his twentieth bail hearing in Sydney, Australia.
This time he was granted bail!
Not only has Ms. May had to use assumed names to prevent her whereabouts being discovered during this time, but the defense actually gets to decide the trial date....they chose her birthday!
Then, they got a post-ponement of course.
Ms. May loves Australia and would like to be able to return to the university and obtain her PhD, which was only 6 months away, when this vicious crime occurred.
She was nearly killed in this extremely brutal attack.
It is beyond human capacity to figure out what could possibly move a court to grant this animal bail!
(From what I have learned about the Australian legal system, in spite of the fact that Australian citizens are absolutely marvellous, as individuals, but they have a system which makes our liberals in America look like law and order conservatives!)
I am furious!
Her parents attend the church where I am serving as supply pastor in Arlington, Texas.
This story should be told!
It is thoroughly outrageous and is all documented.
