Pull punches, please Danny

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Westernopinion -

I RE­SPOND to re­ports of con­victed mur­derer Trudi Lenon (one of the duo who tor­tured and mur­dered teenager Aaron Pa­jich-sweet­man), who is still in hos­pi­tal af­ter be­ing doused with boil­ing wa­ter by a fel­low in­mate.

I am a sup­porter of Danny Green’s ad­verts against onepunch un­pro­voked vi­o­lence but I was sad­dened that Danny Green went on pub­lic record sup­port­ing the of­fender pris­oner for dous­ing boil­ing wa­ter on a fel­low in­mate.

Your sup­port of a fel­low in­mate pour­ing boil­ing wa­ter on a fel­low pris­oner seems at odds with your anti-vi­o­lence cam­paign. Danny, re­mem­ber, two wrongs don’t make a right, even in th­ese ex­treme cir­cum­stances.

Peo­ple who are con­victed of tor­tur­ing and mur­der­ing peo­ple are pun­ished by way of im­pris­on­ment and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion, which partly in­cludes mak­ing the of­fender re­alise the hurt she has done to the vic­tim, his fam­ily and close friends.

Danny, up un­til now I have con­sid­ered you a prin­ci­pled per­son. I hope you re­alise by sup­port­ing this atro­cious at­tack on a fel­low hu­man, un­pro­voked, I thought, would go against your prin­ci­ples.

Danny, for good­ness sake think twice be­fore you speak. BRIAN G TENNANT Su­bi­aco
