There is a lot of online content about Phillip Smith with many views expressed about him solely based on his criminal history dating back to between 1992 and 1995 when he was aged between 18 and 21 years old.
We don’t dismiss Phillip’s criminal history as irrelevant but unlike most people we have personally known Phillip for a long time so we know of other aspects of Phillip that have not been given a public voice.
We intend to be that voice. To humanise Phillip where others have chosen to de-humanise him. To support him, where others have advocated that he should be given nothing more than air, or less than that.
We don’t expect that everyone will agree with our rationale but we also know that many people will. For those that do, we encourage you to rise above the herd mentality and to join us in our support of Phillip.
For those that don’t, we respect your position and your views. We trust that you will equally respect our views, including our decision to express them through this website.
