This double murderer should never have been released in the first place any society who truly sort to protect their members wouldn’t have given this man a period of incarceration they would have executed him!!!!
Would you have this man living nextdoor on his release? The answer would be no and the reason why is obvious it’s a safety issue he has murdered twice cut up his victims and will do it again.
According to him he is not a violent man and the catholic confessional has absolved him from all sin. He is a disaster waiting to occur.
I believe there should be no parole for anyone and should people be released by these boards the board members are to be held accountable for any crimes committed by those they release to put it simply the board members are charged as accomplices and do the same time as those they have released should they reoffend.

Spot on! Absolved of sin? What a load of religious horse s***. For this crime he should die in prison. To do what he did you’d have to be a walking, talking, ticking timebomb.

14 years for killing AND dismembering two men and our PATHETIC legal system here in Australia allowed this s*** bag parole… what a joke! Where’s the justice for not just the men who were murdered but the family’s of these victims aswell.
Whoever is responsible for granting the parole for such a monster of a person, I hope you cant sleep at night and I hope you pray to God that this poor excuse of a human being doesn’t hurt and ruin the lives of another person and their loved ones because it WILL happen and it’s all on you!
Wake up for god’s sake.. euthanize these diluted mongrels and clean up the country!
