Kangaroo Court finds Gable Tostee not guilty of killing Warriena Wright
IF YOU’RE WHITE AND WEALTHY, YOU CAN STILL GET AWAY WITH MURDER, AND MANSLAUGHTER, IN AUSTRALIA.
The white and wealthy Gable Tostee has been found not guilty of killing Tinder date Warriena Wright, who “fell” to her death from his 14th-floor apartment balcony on Queensland’s Gold Coast.
A [racist] Supreme Court jury in Brisbane has acquitted Tostee of both murder and manslaughter, with the decision handed down just hours after defence lawyers called for a mistrial, said a report.
“Jurors rejected the crown’s case that Mr Tostee had intimidated the New Zealand tourist, terrifying the 26-year-old so much as to cause her to scale his balcony to escape.”
After having sex at Mr Tostee’s Surfers Paradise unit the pair had a violent drunken fight.
Prosecutor Glen Cash QC argued while Ms Wright had probably unlawfully assaulted Mr Tostee just prior to being locked outside, his response was disproportionate and unlawful.
He physically restrained and restricted Ms Wright’s throat with his forearm, the prosecution alleged, and was recorded saying she was lucky he had not thrown her off the balcony.
“If you try and pull anything, I’ll knock you out, I’ll knock you the f— out. Do you understand?” he was recorded saying.
Mr Cash said Mr Tostee’s intimidating conduct left Ms Wright feeling like she had no means of escape other than scaling the balcony.
The victim screamed “no” 33 times in 45 seconds.
Barrister for defence, Saul Holt QC, said Mr Tostee had ordered Ms Wright to leave his apartment via the front door, but she hit him with the metal part of a telescope, after which he grabbed her and put her behind the “nearest lockable door.” [He did NOT explain why he failed follow through and push her out of his apartment instead of “locking her up”.]
