In recent hours two extremely high profile court cases have ended.
A man charged with the murder and sexual violation of a 10 year old. Not Guilty.
A man charged with murdering two babies. Not Guilty. (In about 10 minutes)
A wise Man once said:
“There is a phenomenon known to psychologists as Confirmation Bias.
Make up your mind on an issue before you have all the facts.
Thereafter look only for the evidence to support your hunch.
Ignore contradictory evidence or dismiss it as irrelevant or untrue.
This is a phenomenon to which some New Zealand Police and Prosecutors seem susceptible”.
