Bill, I am afraid that this is just a coverup of magnificent proportions of a justice system that has failed the people.
1. The local newspapers, including The Age, making allegations that he committed other crimes for which he has not been charged (this is wrong).
2. The local newspapers have made it clear that he is a repeat offender.
3. He has been named repeatedly in the press as being the person charged with a new crime.
4. His body is shown in digital images, much clearer than fuzzy newspaper photos, so using that plus the identikit of the Dutch tourist's rapist plus court artist drawing it's amusing to read that somehow showing a photo is going to prejudice the community further.
That is, he has been clearly identified both by name and image and has been accused of lots of things for which he is not standing trial.
If he did it and if he was convicted then given the past treatment he'll be on the streets before he is 50 and be given the opportunity to do it again.
If there was a mistrial perhaps the full truth (currently supressed) may finally be revealed once more. The public might get upset with our politicians for not doing enough to protect us. If this happens then perhaps they may even legislate something to protect those among us who don't happen to live in the leafy suburbs like they do. Once can only hope...
