It may surprise people who have read my blogs – but I would describe me as having been a liberal – life and world experiences have since changed my views.
I always believed Gary Dobson and the rest of them to have been guilty – although I never really conciously considered the evidence – I guess I absorbed what I saw and read like osmosis and came to my conclusion – GUILTY.
NOW – I tend to consider what I am told, especially in regards to issues of racism and white persecution, so with this in mind I have been trying to consider the evidence – it is difficult.
Blood splatters on clothing – contamination, video of abusive comments, mothers testimony.
Although I still think he may be guilty, but I no longer know why – I am less sure – which begs the other question - is it possible for these guys to get a fair trial?
