Blayney tables Axe Murderer Petition with 2548 signatures
Geraldton MLA Ian Blayney presented a petition with 2548 signatures to the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly today, protesting against the parole of the Greenough Axe Murderer.
“I will be following up the presentation of the petition with a letter to the Attorney General, once again conveying the message that William Patrick Mitchell should never be released from jail.
“This petition has already been signed by about 10 per cent of Geraldton’s adult population and there are still more signatures to come.
“It is the second time I have petitioned on this matter. The people of Geraldton have again reacted strongly.
“Clearly the community doesn’t want this person released from prison,” said Mr Blayney
