Missed this on TV, any idea if it’ll be on iView? Can’t see any other Australian Story episodes on there?

It’ll be replayed, or else online again somewhere, and if I can get over the rage about this, I might watch it.

I fully endorse taking to Mcgee’s skull with a baseball bat. Pics please.

Stumbled across this before when I was channel surfing.
What a piece of shit that lawyer is. What a fucking joke the police force are…

You can watch Part One here…
