Barry George was cleared at the Old Bailey today after eight years of trying to prove he did not kill television presenter Jill Dando.
George, 48, was found not guilty of murder after his second trial and two appeals.
George, an epileptic with mental disability, was originally found guilty of murder in 2001.
When there is a high profile murder the media bay for blood & the police are under enormous pressure to throw them some human meat, even when,as in this & the Murat case, there is no evidence. But then I have said this before.
Look forward to lots of leader writers saying how this proves Britishn justice alwats does it in the end.
I have also blogged on this before
& on why it is so important that we go & find out if there is life there. If there is microbial life then life is ubiquitous in the universe. If not, in a situation not much more unforgiving than Antarctica then we may be alone.
