This site has strangely been silent over the fate of Mr Harris.
Even if Rolf has taken advantage of girls under the age of consent, is 5 years and 9 months a fair and right sentence for an 86 year old man and his 20 to 50 year old historical crime?
Rolf has already paid a much higher price than any less well-known man.
Some people denounce the boat ride to the courthouse with his closest family. I do not as it may well be the last thing his family ever does with him.
To me it would seem his family has shown incredible strength and solace in the face of such public attention and media coverage. It would also seem that if he were such a bad person all of the time his family would not stand with him.
Dying in prison must be an awful thing when you think how it might play out for his family. My thoughts go towards his worry for his family and his families unreserved care, love and support for him. Yes that’s right, his family has done nothing wrong. Where is the compassion for them?
Demanding an old man dies in prison makes me feel uneasy as to the motive behind the entitlement. The desire to see him die in such an awful manner speaks volumes for the people who want it.
I would think that retrospective justice and a meeting between victim and felon would work better for the sufferers. Something that might help the victims to move on.
The only other thing I could add to this post is, if Rolf Harris was an 86 year old woman, would the feminist movement demand death by long term prison sentence?
Who dares comment on such a controversial post?
