  1. Kalabo woman arrested for murdering her husband

    That headline suggests she has already been tried and convicted. By LT of course


  2. What’s with this ‘culture’ of stating everyone’s vehicle registration number in any accident/incident or alleged crime? In fact, too many personal details before one is convicted of anything.
