Forget the persons involved, be it Thomson or Slipper. In this country we have courts of law, they are independent and most of the time their judgements get it right.
We now have in this country judgement by the press, newspaper polls and attacks on defendants who have as yet have not had charges laid against them.
Not guilty until proved guilty is our law, it has stood us in good stead for many years, isn't it time we all took a deep breath, stood back and examined what is being done to the law in this country in these cases.
We are trashing our own constitution for no other reason than political point scoring.
Should either of these gentlemen be found guilty or innocent they should be treated as such, but until such judgement is made before the courts "they are innocent" this is our law.
The law of Australia is ours, it is not the right others to usurp it for political gain.
Wake up Australia let the law do it's work, we all need to have faith in our law, we own it, it's ours, our right.
Why can't we sit back and let the law run it's course.
