'That the truth may be stretched is a given'. Wow, now there's a meaningless statement. That anything MAY be almost anything (within reason) is of course a given, and tells nobody anything. That the weather is sometimes cold is a given. That I may be 200 cm tall is a given. That the truth may be stretched is a given. And so on. The fact is, the defendants were acquitted of the Heese murder. Witton's belief is that what happened was not JUSTICE. This is where it seems that those who vilify Morant, and those who see him as a flawed victim, differ. The former can not see past the acts. The latter acknowledge these but see that the trial was no more than a sham, and that others who committed the same acts were never called to account for their actions as that would have exposed the rot in the system. I'll take Witton's word over yours or anybody else who was not there, and you don't need to read anything other than the title to get his position on the whole matter.
