  1. You really have to be kidding that this POS is released. The victim will be living in fear and looking over her shoulder until he is locked up.
    Stabbing is attempted murder. Jeeze

  2. What the hell is wrong with our justice system. You stab a person, damage their property etc and you spend one night in jail in Geraldton. This person should be behind bars….he literally stabbed a person!!!!! Justice for one is not the same for others……what is a person of this nature doing walking free within 24hrs of stabbing someone. If he did it once he can do it again. This is frustrating and angers me greatly to see how some people in our community of Greenstone pay for a crime and others are just let loose to walk around in the community especially after stabbing someone !! Very disappointed in our justice system and the judge that made this decision.
