On Christopher Jefferies....


(Sorry if I'm not allowed to link my own blog here, feel free to remove it, it just best sums up my opinion on the matter)


Most of the controversy appears to come not from the murder itself, but from the way in which the media has treated Mr Jefferies, 65, who has now been released on bail. The ex-English teacher's character was picked apart by newspapers branding him as having 'spied on tenants' (The Mirror) and calling him the 'Nutty Professor' (Daily Mail) and 'strange' (The Sun).

They did all that they could to portray him as a weirdo, carrying absurd stories like that he demanded that staff at the school where he worked not address him by his first name, that he was presumed to be gay, he liked gruesome poetry or that he bought a house from a paedophile colleague (who was not convicted or charged at the time of the purchase).

All of this is somehow supposed to make us believe that this eccentric old man must be the murderer, somehow we are supposed to believe that because somebody is a bit odd, speaks a bit poshly, and likes some dark poetry, that they are more capable of murder than anybody else.
