Justice needs to be seen to be done, but we're all talk

I spoke to someone the other day who was appalled, so he was. I knew this because he kept saying "I'm appalled, so I am", in a tone which suggested his disgruntlement should be taken more seriously by those around him.
The source of his vexation was interesting - he was appalled by Pat Hickey. Or, to be more precise, he was appalled by Pat Hickey's treatment at the hands of the Brazilian authorities.
Hickey was an old man, he said. He had done a lot for the country, he said (I don't have enough fingers to count the number of athletes who might take issue with that position).
