ARE ALL PEOPLE IN AUSTRALIA EQUAL UNDER THE EYES OF THE LAW? The scenario is this. I was sentenced to 18 months jail for shaking someone's hand and touching someone on the shoulder for less than 2 seconds. 2 counts of common assault. The magistrate had absolutely no regard to my mental health issues (Schizophrenia, psychosis, depression and anxiety) or my state of mind at the time of the offence. Drunk and delusional believing that the people I was saying 'Hi' to were related to me. On the below link, Scott Morrison does the same thing to two different people. Even worse, these people had refused to shake his hand. In my case, the person had agreed to shake my hand. Should Scott Morrisson be sentenced to 18 months Jail for this? Are we all equal as human beings under Australian law? I strongly believe that I did not receive a fair trial or maybe I was discriminated against for some reason. Do I have a chance of having my conviction overturned?
