Unmasking the Truth

The case of Sef Gonzales in Australia is very similar to the Bain case.  I think there are amazing parallels to the Bain case as I researched it more I came upon this 60 minutes Australia video.  I recommend that everyone watch it and take particular note of the emergency call footage.  Also the expert who says the "managed press statements are all part of the murder" and "he is developing a story that he wants you to believe".

The Underdog

Much of the world has a strange yearning to see those with the lowest chance of winning come out on top. Cheering on the underdog is a particularly strong trait amongst many of the inhabitants of our small collection of islands, tucked away as they thankfully are at the far reaches of a volatile planet, and there is no shame in that.

David had a Compelling Motive - and he told us about it!

Joe Karam made much airtime out of the lack of motive for David Bain, or more correctly, the Prosecution's inability to articulate a valid and compelling one.  We now have that missing link:

David Bain had the following possible motive to compel him to commit the murders.

Gross Miscarriage of Justice: The 2009 Retrial

Opinion: It wouldn't be all that hard to make a case for the 2009 retrial being a "gross miscarriage of justice".  We already have a witness being found to have given untruthful evidence and we have news of jury members behaving inappropriately.  Apparently one jury member obtained a copy of one of Karam's books and downloaded some material from the internet about Karam's
