TENKAN: dejadeadnz could you please start your own topic/rant as it's obvious you are sympathetic to any type of low life which is not what we are discussing.

 

 

 

I thought this was discussion forum not a lynch mob. My bad.

Hey, @dejadeadnz -- what's the third side of the fence? Prosecution, defense and ... being a judge?

 

 

 

And for the record: I think the sentences these guys got are perfectly adequate. If you advocate giving up the civil rights, and indeed the humanity our ancestors worked so hard to get, you are conceding defeat to terrorism. Terrorists want you to be afraid. If you are, then by definition, they win. If you try to fight them using their weapons, they win.

 

 

Haha I am way, way too young to make it as a judge. And given that I have abandoned a litigation and big law firm career (I now work in risk management for a bank), I doubt I will be a candidate either. I worked as what lawyers call judge's clerk -- we essentially research the law, give our opinions, and assist with producing written or oral decisions by the judge(s) that we work for, in any way that they see fit. Sometimes it involves producing the bulk of the decision; other times it involves just sanity checking what the judge has written. But of course the ultimate decision rests solely with the judge. If you are lucky enough to work with open-minded ones (as I was), you can be a persuasive, reasoned influence and have lots of laughs along the way. It certainly remains the most enjoyable job I have ever had in law (they only take fresh graduates with the best/better grades - with the idea that you will take what you have learnt into litigation yourself later and, of course, to save money). There is something very satisfying and pure about just doing something because you genuinely believe that is what the law says or should be.

 

 

 

TENKAN: dejadeadnz could you please start your own topic/rant as it's obvious you are sympathetic to any type of low life which is not what we are discussing.

 

I will happily wear your imaginary terrorist supporter tag if you will concede to being an idiot. Actually, I doubt whether you think you are one matters to any thinking person. If the perpetrator isn't a NZ citizen and only has a visa or permanent residency of some sort, he may be liable to deportation. And, amazingly enough, there are processes governing these things, including appeals to the Deportation Review Tribunal. So how about scared, weedy little people like some of us actually just let the process take care of itself?

I think you'll find that if the guy was an immigrant and NZ citizen, he may not be able to be deported as revoking his NZ passport/citizenship may render him stateless.

It sounds to me like this happy chappy became radicalised after watching a lot of video nastys from the internet. They're not at all hard to find if you choose to look for that kind of $hit.

 

Hopefully the government will keep an eye on him after he's released. I think they currently keep something like 20 people under surveillance for similar reasons presently.

We should make religion a recognised mental illness.

 

It really is high time in the 21st century that people stopped trying to please a variety of imaginary constructs. The sheer levels of mental and physical energy wasted on religion that could be better used in other ways is mind boggling.

 

 

 

 

Well then we'd ALL be judged mentally ill. 

 

 

 

You do realize that Science is a religion too, and theoretical ideas about the 'Big Bang' (something from nothing) are just as ideological as any other religious belief, right?

 

As it is not a reproducible result [its thus not 'real' Science], and you believe on faith alone..... based on your experiential understanding of the resultant effects...

 

 

No! No! No!

 

Science is NOT a religion.

 

It has a vastly different process.

 

Scientific theories are falsifiable i.e. they can potentially be proved to be false as new evidence is found.

 

It is ridiculous to say that the Big Bang can't be true because you can't reproduce the Big Bang itself.

 

There is a considerable amount of evidence, that shows the Universe started from a hot, compact, low-entropy beginning and is expanding and cooling.

 

If you have the knowledge and equipment, you can verify the evidence yourself.

 

Your religion, whatever it is, won't have verifiable evidence. It will be written in some book (or books) that you have to accept on faith.

Proponents from both sides evangelize with equal religious zeal.

Yep, there's always a first, then second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth etc etc. I'm quite sure the European Human "rights" lawyers said the same thing many years ago. Sadly they still do. How many cases later?

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you are going to sink to the level of accusing me of defending extremism ..... etc etc

 

<SNIPPED TO SAVE SPACE>

 

 

 

 

 

Nope ...... nothing you say has convinced me that my concerns are unwarranted.

So all you want to do is carry on hand-wringing whilst demanding extreme measures that involve abrogating others' fundamental human rights? Thanks for confirming.

Given the additional news about Jackson in the last few days that is a scary picture.
