Please Explain?

Let me interpret the message Patsy Wolfe is attempting to send us…

If you must commit a crime, try to stick to rape, assault or battery. Filling out forms incorrectly is the real scourge that our society must deal with:

PAULINE Hanson yesterday received six times the jail term the same judge gave a pedophile who molested an 11-year-old girl in her bed.

In May this year Chief Judge Patsy Wolfe sentenced the 52-year-old man with a history of sexual, drug and violent offences to six months in prison.

The grandfather was a repeat offender and had previously been jailed for 2 1/2 years for attempted rape 30 years ago.

In other news, law student Bright Cold Matt blogs on the legal issues in the verdict and sentence:

It all started with a letter on the 6th of January 1996, and ended today in a Brisbane court room.

At least I hope this is the end.

I’m mindful of Hunter S. Thompson’s send-off for Richard Nixon (yet aware that Hanson is nothing but a two-bit hood to Nixon’s Don).

To paraphrase the Duke: Pauline Hanson’s spirit will be with us for the rest of our lives … This is not a generational thing. You don’t even have to know who Pauline Hanson was to be a victim of her ugly, Nazi spirit. She has poisoned our water forever.

Hmm, after re-reading that, it doesn’t seem to contain any comment at all about the sentence, but rather a whole lot of “Ding, Dong, the witch is dead” style jubilation…

This isn’t the first case of schaudenfraude that Matt’s experienced lately. It must be difficult to have so much hate for others and still maintain the high moral ground from “Nazis” like Pauline Hanson. I’m not sure how he manages it.
