I am glad that one of them is a convicted murderer because it reminds us that there is good in everyone.
I seem to remember reading somewhere that there's a correlation between psychopathy (or was it just committing serious crime? can't remember...) and bravery. Google google... found this:

Does that include Australia ?

I abhor Australia's ghastly way they jail refugees on a God forsaken island.

What amazing talents do we miss out on?

Such as this-Professor Al Muderis who fled Iraq and has become a pioneering surgeon in artificial limbs.

Or perhaps Sir Frank Lowy deemed a terrorist by the British in Israel as a Haganah member..fled to Oz and created the giant Westfield shopping complexes.
