The bizarre Schapelle Corby conspiracy theorists

There are still some very strange people in Australia, with some very bizarre ideas (let's call them the "Schapelle Corby Conspiracy Theorists").  They actually believe a woman with no criminal history and no criminal background smuggled 4.2 kilos of marijuana FROM Australia, TO Bali when . . . (and all hi-lited links will take readers through to the indisputable background evidence) . . .
  • The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime published data, confirming that at the time Schapelle flew, marijuana was just a few cents a gram on the streets Bali, while it sold for over $US30 a gram in Australia.
  • Schapelle is the only person in living history accused of taking marijuana FROM Australia, TO Bali - which considering the bulk and pungency of the drug, means every border cop in both Australia and Indonesia is blind and stupid, or this "Trade" simply doesn't exist.
  • Senior Australian airport sources confirmed that 4.2 kilos of bulky, stinking marijuana would not have made it through our airport security undetected.
They also believe there's no insider crime and corruption at Australian airports despite . . .
  • The public statements of Ray Cooper, former Head of Internal Investigations for the Australian Federal Police, who openly confirmed corrupt baggage handlers were using innocent passengers to ferry drugs between Australian domestic airports. This was also hi-lited in other press reports.
  • The terrible experience of Australian tourists Steve and Dee, who also found drugs in their luggage after flying from Australia to Bali.
