Counter productive actions

I've made no secret of how I feel about the Schappelle Corby[^] case.

But I can't but think that this[^] is only going to hurt the case. You can have no idea how much it goes against the grain to agree with Little Johnny Bastard but in this case I think he's entirely correct.

We (Australians) would object mightily if Indonesians tried to interfere in the Australian legal system. We'd characterise as terrorism the sending of questionable powders to an Australian consulate office or embassy. It has to work both ways. If it were up to me I'd give the perpetrators the same sentence Shappelle got.
