Matt Scown laughed as he walked free, appeal his sentence and get justice for Tyrell now!
Matthew Scown, 34 has pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of innocent 4 year old Tyrell Cobb. He was given a pathetic 4 year maximum prison sentence and then released immediately, after spending two years and eight months in custody.He smiled and laughed as he walked away a free man.Attorney-General Yvette D'Ath has asked the DPP for a brief on the case. Little Tyrell had 53 bruises and 17 abrasions on his body when he died."From the time of injury until death every movement including breathing and vomiting would have caused extreme pain" the court heard.Your failure to obtain medical assistance for him renders you criminally negligent for his death said Justice Burns.WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF CHARGES BEING PLEADED DOWN.SENTENCES BEING ENTIRELY INNAPPROPRIATEAND JUSTICE BEING DENIED!TELL YVETTE D'ATH YOU WANT THIS SENTENCE APPEALED, NOW ! This is a travesty of justice and MUST be appealed ! We MUST send a clear message to our decision makers that KIDS LIVES MATTER and those who were found guilty of playing a part in their murder should receive MUCH harsher sentences. Appealing Matthew Scown's sentence WILL send a clear message to judges everywhere that sentencing those who hurt, murder, or neglect children, to light sentences will result in an appeal !
We request you remove Judge Garry Neilson immediately for his harmful stance on incest, child abuse and homosexuality and lack of sensitivity when it comes to child abuse survivors.
Judge Garry Neilson recently stated that “a jury might find nothing untoward in the advance of a brother towards his sister once she had sexually matured, had sexual relationships with other men and was now ‘available’, not having [a] sexual partner”. and He also said the “only reason” that incest is still a crime is because of the high risk of genetic abnormalities in children born from consanguineous relationships “but even that falls away to an extent [because] there is such ease of contraception and readily access to abortion”.These views are not only ridiculous and uninformed but they are also downright dangerous as they marginalise the crimes of child abuse and incest and also show the antiquated view that homosexuality and child rape are one and the same. Also back in November of 2011 Judge Garry Neilson showed "favour" to a child rapist who was convicted of raping his Neice while living in an incestuous relationship with his sister (his victim's mother) because the convicted child rapist did not ejaculate inside his victim and subsequently saved her from the possibility of sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy. The fact he thought it was ok the rapist had repeated raped and abused the girl in her own home was ok with the judge as long as he did not ejaculate inside of her. This shows a clear pattern of bias against child abuse survivors and incest survivors. His comments and actions show that he does not believe that incest should be a crime at all. FACAA would like him removed from his office effective immediately as he appears to show an unacceptable bias towards child rapists and can no longer be expected to rule on cases where incest, child abuse or homosexuality are involved, without showing this bias. Bravehearts founder Hetty Johnston called his remarks "ludicrous and obscene" and even recommended he be referred to the Royal Commission into institutional responses to child sexual abuse. http://www.news.com.au/national/calls-for-nsw-judge-garry-neilson-to-step-down-as-he-says-incest-and-paedophilia-may-no-longer-be-considered-taboo-in-society/story-fncynjr2-1226985099603?from=public_rss
