Glenn Dylan Hartland

Glenn Hartland is back in gaol for breaching his bail conditions which must be a relief to his victims.  Mr Hartland clearly has some difficulties with controlling his impulses and will hopefully get the help he needs in gaol.

Bail

It is hard to work out why the woman who has been charged over needles in strawberries is denied bail and Glenn Hartland who pleaded guilty to raping three women and indecently assaulting another woman is allowed bail.  He went on to send texts and call one of the women multiple times after the rape.  There have been changes to bail for serious and violent offences in the past couple of years but in this case it does not make sense that Hartland can move free in the community given his crimes and the following harassment.

Malka Leifer

It never seems to come to an end. It has been 10 years since Malka Leifer left Australia.  Yet again her lawyers are fighting to have Ms Leifer free to live in her community applying for bail.  This is with no concern for any young women she may come into contact with.

Victoria Police Taskforce Salus

We had always been conscious that a number of Police members were sexually predatory. Given our role in society this is hardly surprising.  In the past it has been difficult to deal with some Police Members who had offended against our clients not the least because some of them had histories of offending behaviour.

Women's rage can fight injustice

I come from a working class area in the United Kingdom so I have very little time for the wealthy British upper class and would not expect to find an ally in such a place.  However, Boris Johnson's article in The Age Wednesday 10th October 2018 is worth reading.
