Horrible, horrible things need to be done to this bastard.

Kosowicz is accused of sexually assaulting and killing the girl, whose body was found dumped on a riverbank just 200m from her family's mobile home at Lansvale in Sydney's southwest on Saturday.

Excuse me, I have to go hug my daughter.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Monster:


The murder of this child is an act that defies words. You are right to want to hug and protect your daughter (I feel likewise about my own children). However it is not right to leap to judgement on the accused; we don't know the evidence. We don't know of his guilt. We should presume his innocence until such time as the appropriate court of law has handed down its judgement. This is now a matter before the courts and we need to respect the process of law. Blogs are a form of mass media and we need to play by the same rules as the other mass media players. Otherwise someday, somewhere someone will escape justice by saying their court case was prejudiced by what a juror read on a website.

While I don't think we need to play by the same rules as the mass media outlets, this is a private venture to express my own (possibly uninformed) opinions, I was rash. His is innocent until proved guilty. I should have said "Whoever did this needs horrible things done to them".

I just couldn't get the image of that girl out of my head & I couldn't stop thinking about my little girl. Thanks for pulling me up on that.
