Thank you for a clear and thorough reporting of this story. The Chamberlain family has suffered far too much.

The Everyday Bombshell

It truly saddens me when we allow a justice system to believe they are infallible and refuse to hold themselves accountable when they are wrong. The police butchered the investigation with shoddy policework (didn't take witness names or photos or blood evidence, mistook soda for blood, dingo hairs for cat hairs and took a doctor's lie of the name meaning something it didn't for fact without research. Many scientists dropped the ball, most notably the canine expert (who really was a pet dog attacks on children expert) not an expert on dingo behavior, the scientist who used a serum to incorrectly ascertain that the blood in the car was fetal blood, and the scientist who couldn't carry a bucket of sand in his mouth (good Lord what an idiot) The justice system refused to accept tons of evidence before and after from rangers that showed dingies in that area actively attacked people and tried to carry them off. Shame on them... They even tried to brush it under the rug, when she was finally freed to help on her defense, by claiming that they weren't going to put her back in jail for good behavior" and they were hoping that she would just drop the case and not try to exonerate herself.

the man held a bucket of sand in his mouth in comparison to a dingo carrying a baby in its mouth... is absurd!

It's disgusting that people are still making jokes about this even after she has been found innocent. Grow some compassion, a dingo ate her child..
