JUS­TICE FLAWS

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

A TRUCK driver swerves to avoid an ac­ci­dent and un­for­tu­nately has an ac­ci­dent any­way.

Yes, it was fa­tal, and we are all sad at the loss of life. But it is a leap in the wrong di­rec­tion for the jury to blame an in­no­cent man just be­cause they are sad at what hap­pened. Wis­dom has been so sadly lack­ing in this judge­ment. JOAN COLLINS, Mer­riwa.
