Dallas pot-stirrer, education activist and computer inventor Russell Fish -- the subject of a Dallas Observer cover story a couple years ago -- is making trouble Down Under. One of Fish's many diverse and unpredictable hats is as an activist on sexual predation issues, apparently on a world-wide basis. Fish and the Victoria Herald Sun are putting heat on Australian cops for sheltering a fugitive from sexual assault charges in Scotland.
We can tell the Victoria Police one thing for sure: Mr. Fish will not go away.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
