This is #&^@ed up

Two women that attacked Terry Martin as he left Hobart's Supreme Court are being charged with assault.  For those of you that don't know Terry Martin is a former Tasmanian MP that has been convicted of possession of child pornography, producing child pornography and have sexual intercourse with a 12 year old girl.
Terry Martian's sentence? 10 months...suspended for having sex with the 12 year old girl.  Supposedly taking medication for Parkinson's disease caused him to be "Sex crazed" and from what I must gather temporarily insane that or the judge is permanently insane.  I gather he was taking some type of cabergoline but even with the studies that show that it does make it easier to be aroused does this warrant a suspended sentence for having sex with a 12 year old?  This man would have been taking the drug for a while.  Surely if you found yourself loosing control of your sexual inhibitions you'd talk to your doctor about it wouldn't you?
I'd like to think that it isn't just because I'm a parent that I'm feeling the disgust that I am.  Honestly there are a few things that I would put in to the bucket of always inexcusable and pedophilia is one of those things. 

What is worse is that there are 2 other men that had sex with that same little girl and the court knows who they are but they are not even being charged.  Honestly...what the fuck is going on in Tasmania. 

It's a sad day with this type of shit happens.  The whole tragic situation is even more sad when you realise the 2 women that "assaulted" Terry Martin will probably get a more severe sentence then he does.  Seems having a video tape of having sex with a 12 year old is less damning then video of an old lady with a walking stick hitting a pedophile with it as he leaves the courts as a free man.
