    I can just picture it...

    Defence: My client GBC will now produce 50 witnesses who DID NOT SEE HIM murder his wife!

    todays court session was a panorama of misogyny. ... a wide swath, covering all the categories of women , mothers, mistresses, wives, women with jobs, women who just will not accept that husbands must not be questioned, who will not accept the responsibility so firmly plastered onto them to keep men happy. .. no matter what it costs.. if you don't keep them happy, it is expected that you will stroll off in the dark and hurl yourself off a bridge..

    The Wife.. a depressing and anxious lunatic , who's nerve in questioning a husbands straying antics seeks the obvious solution.. the Mistress.... background noise, Wallpaper, powerless, violent.. the Mother.. .. putting her hair do in front of the childrens school interview... on and on it went, . it was disgusting and reprehensible..

    My Bold...

    Yes, I thought the disregard of the experts theory on the scratches was the Defence clutching at straws...

    Though, I just realized how relevant this answer is from Dr Stark - regarding the injury..

    Its not diagnostic! Interesting point.
    Which means asking for a 100% confirmation is moot.
    Evaluating the marks on GBC face doesnt exist in those % terms -
    I think she was explaining it can be gauged to a degree of accuracy in a professionals interpretation/findings.

    Doctors below would not commit to saying 100% - but they were emphasizing their opinions as to what the cause of the injury was.

    It was false. It didn't happen, police have admitted it was a false positive. The iPhone gerard had was not capable of making face time calls.

    Yes, and not to mention his use of the male pronoun for the three female doctors.

    Not at all, I wasn't meaning to single you out sorry, there just seemed to be several posts about how I seem to walk abnormally fast. I was just trying to offer a different perspective in that if Allison walked at my pace that distance wouldn't have necessarily have taken her as long as some may think. Probably didn't explain myself well (possibly still not) - long day, tired, grumpy, bedtime...

    Meanwhile I just googled racewalking and saw they average 14km per hour. Now THAT is speedy!!

    Hello Snails, thanks for your reports today. You sure you're not actually a Court reporter? You didn't miss a thing.

    I prolly shouldn't answer the Legal Aid question, as I'm not verified, but the lovely Alioop shouldn't be too far away :) If you can't wait, I believe she addressed it upthread somewheres.

    I think the reason this case has affected me as much as it has is that it reminds me so much of the W D case (initials used as I don't want to spread rumours in case what I am aware of as a young person is incorrect). I went to school with her kids and it has always been fairly well known that the husband was involved but it was never proven...this is based on all the talk that went on at the time and the events as they occurred. One of the ladies who worked at the tuckshop with mum said she saw scratch marks and red marks all over her husband's neck the morning before W was reported missing...6 months later he had changed his wardrobe, was dying his hair and had a new girlfriend. Hardly the grieving husband...turned out he had been lying about their financial circumstances and W was on her way to the accountant and would have most likely found out.

    W was never found although the husband was found wondering around in bushland with some bones in his hands years later - in fact I believe it was just 3 days after the 7 years had passed and her affairs would have been allowed to be sorted out/W would be declared dead as such...turned out to be animal bones...then he committed suicide. Totally horrific and tragic case...those poor kids :-( They also found a diary with all sorts of strange ramblings in it...I wonder if the case is still open simply because her body has never been found?

    Yes, what happened to that.
    It would make one of my theories seem even plausible :)

    ETA: Saw response above - cheers!

    Regarding point 2, we were under strict instructions not to groan/smile/frown etc for fear of being thrown out of court ha ha! I was in court 11 in very close proximity to the accused's family. Am I allowed to elaborate on body language or comments made by them?:scared:

    Yeah and I bet he's hoping for an acquittal for the sole reason that he won't have to be in the same atmosphere as his client, preparing for and appearing on an appeal. MOO.

    Oh thank you Trooper, I couldn't have put this better! That is exactly what it felt like in court today.
