Charges dropped

Anyone who has spent much time around the courts knows there’s often more to a court decision than meets the eye, but the decision to drop charges against Health Minister Trevor Moniz’s son will inevitably lead to criticism.

Many will see this simply as one rule for ordinary people and another for children of the privileged. There may be more to the case, but this does not look like the new politics promised in the 2012 general election. No parent should ever judge another parent when a child gets into difficulty (there but for the grace of God etc), but there is an expectation that people will be treated the same, regardless of their parentage, and rightly so.
