Agreed with Co President Gareth Evans. As Co President I demand a police investigation and dismissal for aggravated misconduct. What kind of example does this set for staff and students? If Australian law is similar to the common law here it is up to the police to decide whether or not to prosecute. In this case the evidence is written down, de facto.”
Our congratulations to Dr Chen for telling the irritating little pseudoscientist Stephen ‘Sam Spade’ Crothers where to get off. It would certainly be disgraceful for a scientist to use such language when dealing with another scientist, but Crothers does not qualify as one. But Chen should not apologize. If one starts to apologize to the likes of Sam Spade, where will it end? We would sooner apologize to a cane toad which we had squashed.
