    Apologies if this has already been posted but wonder if anyone recognises themselves in this round-up of the trial and those who attended court??!!!

    "... spent her time in public gallery reading a book during the boring bits of evidence. We agree there is nothing particularly strange about that, except for the fact the book was about the life and times of infamous Australian serial killer Ivan Milat ..."

    The layout of this article is not great (nor is the condescending, bordering on offensive, tone IMO) - the interesting bit starts under the heading "Law with Tony Kiem"

    Possum, well done on wanting to be verified. I can't wait for what you may be able to share with us all. Any news on how that's going yet?

    I also remember an "odd" hand movement I think from when he left the Indooroopilly police station. The one where he was "deflecting" the media, but he used the opposite hand, away from the media. It looked strange to me at the time. Video anyone?

    If it's the one you're referring to it's on this vid even though it's not the original. I remember when it was first shown on tv, the reporter said something along the lines of, GBC tried to swipe the cameraman's head off because he was leaning on the BC's car.

    Very gracefully said. It's one of my buttons and when it gets pushed I will defend it to the teeth, probably not quite as gracefully. I am glad we can have opposite views and still be polite. I won't bite any further, the mods are probably sick of me already on the subject. . .

    I realize this is not the place to get into a debate over hunting- it is a very controversial subject with many people having strong views(myself included) And to do so would likely go very off topic.

    But I did just want to comment on what I bolded in your comment. And while not talking specifically about hunting, I believe killing or torturing animals is actually a widely recognized indicators to future abuse or violence towards humans. "Murderers...very often start out by killing and torturing animals as kids," according to Robert K. Resler, who developed profiles of serial killers for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
    Please understand though, I am not equating this to hunters necessarily either, just commenting on recognized links. I hope that this does not cause any offence- as I am not suggesting you or anyone else who hunts are going to go and kill a human being

    Edited to add: my appologies Spotted Reptile, I didn't see your comment above about your buttons :) and not biting any further until after I posted. I'm certainly not trying to push any buttons :) or stir up any issues with my comment.

    Folks it's fine to paraphrase a comment from blogs etc as long as you include a link to it. But it then can't be discussed.

    Sorry Marly, I'm hopeless with a computer, perhaps one day my kids will give me a crash course.

    A quote I like... "If someone treats you like *****, just remember that there is something wrong with them! not you. Normal people don't go around destroying other human beings". Unknown.

    My apology and I stand corrected, I mean GBC's pointer finger (second digit) and middle finger (third digit). Thanks JK673.

    I'm quite surprised that GBC has turned out to be even more despicable than I had imagined . Really nothing would surprise me anymore . I get the feeling that he's done something like this before and got away with it . And probably enjoyed it too . Maybe it's just all the talk about hunting and thinking about Milat . But I can just see it ..
