      Glen Huntly, Australia

- random, unprovoked, and vicious crime by a repeat offender
- low sentence which does not provide enough time for rehabilitation
- high probability of reoffending - danger to the wider community
- sets negative precedent to other potential offenders who might believe that such horrific crime can result in a minimum punishment

      Firstly, I just want to say a huge thank you to all our supporters. Your support at this very difficult time is greatly appreciated! Secondly, I would like to share with you our recent interview that has been broadcasted by SBS on Wednesday night as part of the World News Australia program:

      Family disgusted at killer's sentence

      The family of a man stabbed to death on a Melbourne street says it is disgusted at the sentence given to his killer. They are vowing to fight what they are calling an offensively lenient term. And they've posted a Youtube video seeking public support.

      once he has killed he will always kill a jail with a revolving door will cause another to pay the price too hight a price that only he should pay.that young man could contribute to the community the felon has hands that destroy a thief that steals the life of others.Society is only safe if he is safe in jail.Far,far away from ordinary people.
