Unfortunately for Ms. Matthews, but fortunately for the officer’s career, a dashboard camera in the police car had recorded the entire encounter. He was completely exonerated, and the burqa bimbo was charged with filing a false police complaint. The magistrate found her guilty, and sentenced her to six months in jail.
She was set free on bail, and immediately filed an appeal. The grounds for her appeal provided the most entertaining aspect of the case: she insisted that since a veiled woman had filed the false complaint, there was no way to prove that it was in fact the defendant who had done it.
The affair has now entered the realm of high farce…
…an appellate court has overthrown the conviction on exactly the grounds asserted by the defendant. Ms. Matthews is free, and her culturally enriched supporters celebrated so vigorously outside the courthouse that they had to be forcibly restrained by the police.

Whatever happened to that famous Australian no-nonsense level-headedness in matters such as this?
Does the state disqualify any appellate court judges who possess common sense?
