The story has been in the news since yesterday, but I’m not going to post the links here (given the givens!).
Dad has been bugged by reporters from various newspapers and television channels, but he continues to decline to comment. He says that it’s amazing how nice the reporters are when they first call and then how nasty some of them turn when he says that he doesn’t want to comment. One reporter wanted to use something Dad had said nine years ago when this guy was first convicted, and said Dad couldn’t stop him. They did though; they called the editor and complained.
Apparently the guy and his barrister are giving a press conference sometime today, so it will no doubt be in the news again tonight.
