Lawyers who fought to have 9 year old Samantha Knight’s rapist and murderer, Michael Guider, released… will now have their costs paid for by the people of NSW !
So, NSW legal aid, a government run organisation who are supposed to represent the people of NSW, fought for the release of child kidnapper, rapist and murderer Michael Guider.
And because they won, they then took the NSW State Government to court to pay for their costs.
Yesterday they won in what is, according to Justice Richard Button, “just a redistribution of money between two government instrumentalities.”
Way to slap the people of NSW in the face, fight to have one of the worst scumbags in NSW criminal history, who was guilty of one of the most horrific crimes, and then have the people of NSW pay for it !
But instead of just working it out between departments, let’s take up court time, add more court costs, spend more of the tax payers money.
As if enough money hasn’t been wasted on this blight on humanity..
Why do they fight so hard for child rapists and murderers ?
Do they think they can be rehabilitated ? Because they simply cannot.
Do they think they deserve another shot at life? Because the fact is, they don’t. Once they rape or kill a child (or in Guider’s case, do both), they have given up the right to be a part of society. They have taken that child’s life and brought great devastation to the family and friends of that precious child.
These rapists/murderers are forever a serious threat and dangerous to children everywhere.
Right now FACAA needs legal help and we can’t find anyone willing to take our case pro bono, (our clients often need legal help and get turned away due to lack of funds) and this guy is getting the state of NSW to foot his fight for release and costs on top of that. Where is the justice?
How many of you have been denied legal aid for one reason or another?
Only to hear your perpetrator managed to get legal assistance.
Yes, we know everyone deserves a defence but not everyone gets one.
This guy got full legal assistance despite what he has done. How does that make you feel? Knowing that a child rapist and murderer has been given a full legal defence and then in what appears to be a total waste of money and court time, Legal Aid sued the State of NSW for costs. (Guider will not get any money for himself).
Once they are found guilty, child rapists and murderers, like Guider, need to be kept behind bars for the rest of their natural lives.
They can never be trusted again.
The money spent on their lawyers and court costs can be used much more productively.
