I wish I found this surprising...

Police in Queensland's Deep North arrest intellectually disabled 19yo male family friend over abduction, murder, and heavily-implied sexual molestation of 8-year-old girl.
Wait, wut? (I'm sure I saw this movie...)
Facebook groups spring up calling for Death Penalty or just good ol'fashion lynching of the retard.

What happened to that young girl was horrible, but I hope the boy's got a good lawyer, because finding an unbiased jury to assess the quality of the evidence the Police assert justifies their case might be a bit hard.

Presumption of Innocence, folks. It's there for a reason. The Police may have an air-tight case, but how about we wait and see? I understand they've gotten it wrong before.
