A 190cm police officer beats the proverbial out of his 160cm wife and gets a $2000 fine. Oh, sure he won’t do it again, he’s sorry.
I think my favourite line is:
Westergerling’s lawyer applied for a spent conviction order, arguing a conviction would unfairly impact on both his career with the police force and work as a model.
Big man didn’t give much thought to the impact his fists and feet would have on his wife.
Justice is obviously not simply blind, but stupid as well. Makes me sick as well as enraged.
