Townsville Bulletin - - Text The Editor -

Well done mag­is­trate Rod Mad­sen! Fi­nally we have a rul­ing that up­holds the law about of­fen­sive lan­guage. In a per­fect world the man would also have been charged with racist lan­guage but maybe that will hap­pen next time! Ab­bie we Good to see a judge with guts to make a fair de­ci­sion. Why should po­lice have to suf­fer foul mouthed, racial abuse. Joe. 4818 Great out­come for the good guys. Mag­is­trate Rod Mad­sen pun­ishes the per­son who gave the po­lice an ear­ful of abuse. Thank you for tak­ing into ac­count com­mu­nity ex­pec­ta­tions. This is a win for all the de­cent peo­ple out there and not just our hard-work­ing po­lice. Pete from Dou­glas.
