- Reaction score
Since 2015.Exactly how is this different from your standard Mark 1 No 1 * civilian druggie showing up in a suit?
The intent is to make a positive impression with the court.
I really have no issue with the right of the CoC to make the order that they did. They do.
My problem comes with what appears to be a knee-jerk reaction to random pressure groups using the media to influence policies. The CAF has just offloaded what are militarily connected offences to civilian courts. Again, the government has the right to do so. It just feels like individual soldiers are being thrown under the bus because of "appearances". Remember that whole presumed innocence thing?
That doesn't leave one with a warm and fuzzy feeling.
