Susan Couch frustrated 11 years after attack
Wed, 12 Sep 2012 7:00p.m.
In 2001 a young man by the name of William Bell entered the premises of the Panmure RSA in Auckland, with heinous intention.
He killed three people and left one - Susan Couch - for dead.
She survived, and for the last seven years has been trying to prove the Department of Corrections should be punished for its mistakes.
She wants her case to be heard in front of a jury, but has been denied that request, and she wants to know why.
Watch Anna Burns-Francis’ interview with Susan Couch - the survivor.

Any jury would surely side with Susan which is exactly why it will never be heard. Disgusting treatment.

Why this does not go before a group of our peers is simply that by going about it this way keeps the 'old school tie' in place. This is an outrage that even the parole officer has not been held in contempt! The parole board has got alot of questions to answer.

This decision is an outrage. The case MUST be heard in front of a jury to have any credibility. I have been reading Badlands by David Fraser and this seems to support a lot of what he says about our legal system and those that support and administer it.
