Police opposing bail for traffic offences

By 24 January, 2014 18

A 28-year-old Gunning man will face ACT Magistrates Court this morning (Friday, 24 January) after fleeing from police yesterday (Thursday, 23 January) afternoon.

About 2.55pm, police attempted to stop the green Holden Commodore on Antill Street in Dickson. The vehicle was in extremely poor condition and had what appeared to be home-made number plates attached.

The driver fled from police into Downer and he reached speeds in excess of 120km/h in a residential area where the speed limits are 50km/h.

Police followed the Commodore at a safe distance and observed the man stop the vehicle, and flee into a house. He surrendered himself to police after a short negotiation.

The man was arrested and transported to the ACT Watch House. He has been charged with multiple traffic offences, including dangerous driving. Police will oppose bail.

“He surrendered himself to police after a short negotiation.”

I do hope that’s a euphemism.

Well, it’s better than the old ones: “He fell against my fist,” or “The prisoner strangled himself.”

No.

Practising for prison would involve sitting in a room with a panel of 15 psychologists and social-workers and listening to them telling you for hours on end that your actions are all society’s fault.

Perhaps the originals were stolen, which would be ironic.

Put him to sleep, he’s dangerous.

When I surrended myself at age 15 after stealing the step fathers car, the biggest serve I got was for being a ‘big hero’ or thinking I was for outrunning them. This was before I even admitted being the driver. Now I did learn my lesson but that wasn’t something they gave a shit about. I out ran them for two reasons, without either being intentional. #1, I was driving a car of equal power. #2, I was 15, green and knew nothing about the car dynamics or how fast I could take corners etc. It was chance. But, since that policeman thought I was some kind of racing car authority, I ll take it. I out ran you, at 15…. Good Job sir. XX

Gee, you’re lucky driving a car at 15. I remember when I reached driving age my parents bought me an expensive Peugeot 10 speed bike. It staved off the driving pangs for a further ten years when I finally got my drivers licence.

Nope. Not at all. Just young and stupid. Even so I think I was more deterred from encountering a dumbs with a badge and a gun more so than anything else. And it worked. My driving record is just about perfect.

Don’t know if I would equate stealing to luck, unless you’re of the make-(off-with)-your-own-luck ilk.

What’s a dumbs? I don’t get the point of your little brag. You do realise cops will back right off in a pursuit when the driving is reckless (which you said it was). Especially if that driver is a kid. Don’t think too highly of your driving ability. Nearly all pursuits are terminated before they reach their conclusion. If I steal a Hyundai Excel, I would get away from the cops because I know what to do to have a pursuit terminated (as do most crooks).

At least you’ve got a perfect driving record though. Oh wait, you don’t. Again, I don’t see the point of bragging about it, but if it makes you feel a bit special, then fill your boots.

Hmmm… considering we have only your word on this, I’m calling b*llsh*t.

Don’t get me wrong tooksy, Canberra has the best law enforcement people and courts money can buy. I support the men and women who help to enforce it. Canberra owe’s its relatively low levels of crime and above average personal safety. I just thought to, foolishly indeed, bring it up. The officer was really pissed about having lost them, it was very curious. Even mum noted it. I didn’t get off lightly. That stepdads vehicle was in fact commonwealth property. I was dealt with accordingly, but also sent back to DADS! I was in a whole world of old school fathering pain. I don’t know what the point of me bragging about it was either Tooks. Im sure I have made it clear that the things I say, and the things I think about before saying them are few and far between. That officer was a prick and Im sure even his colleagues thought so. One of my best mates serves currently in the job, among the best I blokes I know. Honest. Im not anti cop. Im anti construct relevant point sometimes. Best.
