Farquharson, 41, has been sentenced to three life terms for murdering his three sons by driving them into a dam on Father's Day. That was the second time he was found guilty as his first trial has been quashed by the Court of Appeal. His supporters, including his sisters, wept.
Farquharson pleaded not gulity by saying that he had coughing fit, blacked out and woke up in the dam where his sons die. His lawyer also claims that the fact where he invited a friend to join their trip to Geelong can be the evidence that he had no intention to kill the boys. Farquharson is said to be a shy and uneducated man who loves his own sons.

+++From my point of view, this is really unbeneficial. There are still many other ways to seek for better fulfill of workers' welfare. Plus, in this situation, the students are affected too. Both side should be more aware on these negative externalities from their actions.+++
