I see that the Sensible Sentencing Trust's Garth McVicar has again lashed out at offenders being given name suppression.
And while in the particular case McVicar is concerned about I struggle to understand why the offender got suppression, every time I hear McVicar railing against suppression laws I can think of only one word.
Surely the public also had the right to know what McVicar's friend David Garrett was doing with the identities of dead children.
McVicar is also part of a new site, the Justice Hot Tub, where together with Stephen Franks, Gil Elliot and Greg King he opines on the justice system. In my personal opinion the site design looks ugly, the colour-scheme doesn't work and the font is all wrong. But worst of all, even metaphorically getting into a hot tub with the likes of McVicar and Franks is likely to fill many a sleeping head with horrid nightmares. I don't have anything against the other two fellows, but I'm just not much of a "get into a hot tub with a bunch of other men" sort of guy.
