Bail is presumed.

It is up to the prosecution to show why bail should not be granted.

Do we know what the prosecution’s submission was?
no unfortunately

It just breaks my heart to see people allowed to participate in our society who go out of their way to hurt other people. We wonder why crimes like Adrian Bayley/ Jill Meagher occur despite Adrian coping repeated criminal convictions.

If a dog bites a person we put the dog down. We do this as they are a known risk and deemed not safe in society.

Time out might be more appropriate than putting "this" dog down but if we lived in "power raidistan" he would leave prison in 3-5 years without his nuts. Like a dog, he might calm down after being neutered.

And then someone expands the range of crimes you can be neutered for, and then we’re gassing homosexuals and Jews.

There are laws that apply and they must be applied uniformly. This is an outlier - reporting on hundreds of reasonable judicial decisions that happen every day is not good for clicks and TV ratings.

Kennett’s on his high horse when he used to be a lawmaker and should know better.

Apparently cost and a lack of jail space

I must admit, at first glance it's hard to see how that guy was granted bail.

That was a pretty brutal attack on someone and the result could have easily been a lot worse.

How is this not the lead story on every mainstream news outlet across the country?!

I hope he's okay.

Large group of youths wreaking havoc in Taylors Hill
A large group of out-of-control African youths have congregated in Taylors Hill tonight, hurling rocks and damaging a police car.

“In one area there is a massive group the police said were Sudanese and near the park in Bronte Way there was another really large group of Sudanese and they basically said they don’t have it under control but there is a strong police presence,” they said.

“They told me to stay inside, lock the doors and yeah, it’s scary, I’ve got a nine-year-old and an eleven-year-old and they’re scared.”
Na na na, gonna have a good time...

"After attending the speaking event, and being asked by security to stow away his Australian flag before entering the venue, citizen journalist for The Unshackled, Martin Hartwig, ventured outside the venue. Concerned his propinquity may result in violence, but having no choice other than to traverse by the unruly mob, Hartwig made sure to record the violence using a gopro that had been purchased the night before."

Do they have the video footage from his GoPro?

Shhhh! If nobody mentions that the perp is a Muslim-looking campaigner then maybe it didn't happen.
How do you look Muslim? Honestly.... another person who should be prevented from voting in our elections due to not satisfying an IQ requirement.

refugee from Sudan. Another pathetic fail by you. Now say sorry to Ron The Bear for being such a muppet

The family, members of the Zaghawa Muslim tribe, fled to Wad Madani, a city in eastern Sudan, to escape the strife, but friends in Birmingham said they still faced persecution there.
