Hang on, Napes.
Stathi Katsidis has to be tried in a court before we can say they were his drugs. I am not overlooking his drink driving. Anyone who drinks and gets behind the wheel deserves to walk for the rest of their lives, as far as I'm concerned.
However, I do object to people, police included, using their powers simply because they have them. As I asked before, how many people have blown over the limit and then had their cars searched?
I was not aware that Katsidis had a prior drug problem. I do know he did take Duromine (appetite suppressant) which can be used as speed. However, that is not a long list of offences in my opinion. And he refused to supply a urine specimen and was outed for it.
I loathe illegal drugs and if it had come to my attention that Stathi was "one of those" there is no way known I would even try to defend him.
If you will read it again, I said what was reported in the paper and on websites. Regardless of that, I still think he was stitched up. He's obviously upset someone and it's pay back time. I have never defended him for "using illegal substances".
And MagiC, I was not aware that steroids could help control weight. Is that general knowledge? Would Joe Public know that and immediately assume that's why the steroids were in his car? To me, steroid use has been by people who want to bulk up, not the reverse.
We learn something every day.
