As the nation divides and morphs over whether an elected MP is correct in questioning the report of a Canadian Judge, who seems to have an inflated opinion of his value in jurisprudence, on the balance of probabilities as to "did David Bain commit murder", Ms Wozniack a skinny white caucasian, is being called a racist for doing a send up on the very different body shape of the current leading lady of tennis.
I dont think many would say Plod did the very best investigation when David Bain called into Ambulance communications with the babble about the scene at his very own house of horrors, 65 Every street.
Binnie appears to this layman to have made a simmilarly botched attempt to make any sense of the task Pantywaist Power appointed him to do.
Does that mean David and Goliath, sorry I meant Joe Karam, should be given the Jackpot, this blogger says no.
David and Joe, just value the fact you have the chance to get on with your lives, a simple fact that has been denied Robin, Margaret, Arawa, Laniet, Stephen and the House of horrors that was dispatched in a ball of fire with unseemly haste after the killings.
Whilst I accept that David Cullen Bain may have been convicted wrongly all those years ago there was too much evidence that pointed to him as the perpetrator for him to be found "innocent on the balance of probabilities". A very different test.
The timing, the computer turn on time, the evidence of DCB's return time, the message, the blood on his clothing, the scratches on his hands, the struggle Stephen had put up, the washing, the gloves, Davids alleged controlling behavior, his talk of using the "paper round for an alibi, Robin's full bladder, the almost theatrical scenario for Robin to have shot himself, the chaotic personal lives, and subsequent growth in the incest legends, could all be used in isolation to muddy the waters.
Half a century ago DCB could have dangled at the end of a rope and without the advances in evidence manipulation, revisiting evidence and indulging in minutiae we have today, we would be just considering the early death of another member of a somewhat disfunctional family that entered the growing legend of NZ criminal justice 18 years ago.
As for the skinny white Russian, it was theatre FFS, now I will have a measure of what Granny Clampet called 'medcin and toddle off to bed.
