I had read an article just recently regarding the parole of child murderer Austin Allan Hughes where a small appendix to it reported that his release was to be held over until January 2010 for review. I wish I had copied the link to that story but it would be of no use now – the NSW State Parole Board has released Hughes and given him a second shot at a life he should not have. Unbelievably State Parole Authority secretary Paul Byrnes has declared that it was in the “community’s best interests to release him”. What??? this guy bashed a six year old boy to death, and did it over a period of hours so that the child endured what was a long drawn out torturous death. While his mother, Gunn-Britt Ashfield (Angelic Karstrom) stood by ignoring his pleas and cries – and participated in his torture, and this clown says it is in OUR best interests to free this mongrel??? anyway, here’s what the bastard looks like at the age of 36 and on his first day of freedom…
Not that much different from the day when he walked into custody at just 20 years of age – obviously prison has not been all that hard on him at all. Sixteen years in prison and he comes out looking like he has been backpacking around Bali – his six year old victim, John, looked decidely worse after his ordeal of several hours with his mother and Hughes…
His uncle, Linden Hughes, a Queensland estate agent, has confirmed he is buying a farm in the Northern Rivers region of NSW (Mullumbimby, Ballina, Kyogle…) where he and his family will reside with this murdering piece of scum. Hughes has been banned from working with children – one would hope that also covers living with any female who has children. He also hopes that the family of little John Ashfield will “forgive him one day…”
It is not up to John’s family to forgive anyone.
The other half of this murdering couple, John’s mother Gunn-Britt, will qualify for parole once again in May 2010 – I am hoping that the media will raise enough community outrage by reminding the public just what happened to this little boy, so that authorities will know that we have not forgotten. People can speak about the possible ‘rehabilitation’ of Hughes…but how on earth do you rehabilitate a woman who willingly stood and watched her own child being beaten to death?
You cannot – you just punish as harshly as possible.Copyright © 2007-2015 Cultured Views. All rights reserved.
