I have a new Defense

Thanks to the Waihopai case I now have a new legal defense.

In his closing arguments today, Leason’s lawyer Michael Knowles said the men were driven by a belief that the satellite caused human suffering and their actions to shut it down, if only temporarily, were lawful.

“That belief doesn’t have to be correct,” he said.

“They had a belief in a higher law, a law for protecting people.”

Murnane said he believed the satellite aided crimes against humanity.

“I had to do this, it was necessary for me,” he said.

Land’s lawyer, Tony Shaw, said his client genuinely believed his actions were lawful, and he should be acquitted.

And so they’re Not Guilty. Sweeeet! I’ve now got a nice defense because I have a belief in a higher law, a law for protecting people from paedos, rapists, wife bashers and thugs.
