The man is obviously innocent ... well, either that or he stole the cap.

I think you might find that he did not in fact take money from those 200 disabled Australians.  Rather, he used them to take money from the Government.  This is in no way significant when determining his guilt or innocence, and indeed he would probably get a harsher sentence for robbing the Government, but it's an interesting note on how they do headlines.  Nobody really cares if he robs the Government, but say that he was robbing poor disability pensioners and suddenly he's going straight to hell.  Which is appropriate given his choice of head-wear.

The heading to this thread is 100% accurate. 

Under our law, a person charged with an offence is always innocent until proven guilty.

Why would you wear that cap to court? His lawyer should have told him to take it off.

I think you'll find the majority of lawyers are Melbourne supporters.

Shame is it not? We seem to entrap one another these days as a direct and wilful function of what we now know as 'the media', just like the USA as if it is the representation of sociological and cultural progress as we hide en masse in our little boxes; whereas in a liberal and democratic society, the practices applied are anything but just, honest and non-intruding - and decidedly non-sensationalist. The law, as understood in its broad structural-philosophical terms, no longer has the right to meter its own intent against benchmarks and paradigms such as '...innocent until proven guilty...' where this 'stone casting' is aided and abetted by often inaccurate, media-based shallow wisdom and perspective. The AFL Tribunal including an array of player sanctions and onfield umpiring decisions all seem to operate the same way in an instant of immediate gratification of the inherent lust for watching the subsequent suffering of one in torment. The fellow in the Demon cap is to be pitied; he may well be just another Demon supporter caught for a bollocking by a photo-journalist who most obviously (and allow me to be hypocritical) is a supporter of The Filth.

Even so, surely a tie would have been more appropriate! 👔

i don't think he was talking about guilty court verdicts, just the principle of presumptive innocent before a fair trial even if it just plays out in the court of social media

I hope he doesn't wear that cap when he goes to jail, the Filth and Tiges supporters there will make his life hell.
