Punchy Gungahlin 17 year old

By 3 December 2012 4

A 17-year-old male will face court this morning (Monday, December 3) after allegedly assaulting three people on Saturday night (December 1).

Around 8:30pm an off-duty police officer drove past the Gungahlin McDonalds restaurant and witnessed a young man pulling a pizza delivery driver out of his vehicle and allegedly punching him.

The officer stopped his vehicle and separated the two males. The teenager was verbally aggressive towards the officer however he managed get him to move away from the driver.

The teenager returned a short time later and a woman, who witnessed the initial assault, tried to intervene. The offender then assaulted the woman and the police officer, who had attempted to negotiate with the youth.

The teenager was arrested and taken to the ACT Watch House, where he was charged with two counts of assault and assault occasioning actual bodily harm. He will appear before the ACT Children’s Court this morning.

I’ve always thought there’s an anomaly in the system when at the age of sixteen one is entitled to do the following yet one can bash the crap out of someone and be treated as a child?

•Get married or register a civil partnership with consent
•Drive a moped or invalid carriage
•You can consent to sexual activity with others aged 16 and over
•Drink wine/beer with a meal if accompanied by someone over 18
•Get a National Insurance number
•Join a trade union
•Work full-time if you have left school
•Be paid national minimum wage for 16/17 year olds
•Join the Armed Forces with parental consent
•Change name by deed poll
•Leave home with parental consent
•In certain circumstances you must pay for prescriptions, dental treatment and eye tests
•Choose a GP
•Consent to medical treatment
•Buy premium bonds
•Pilot a glider
•Buy a lottery ticket
•Register as a blood donor, but you won’t be called to give blood until you’re 17
•Apply for a passport without parental consent

And at 17 you can be responsible for use of a deadly weapon – a car. An anomaly indeed.

This “boy” will never be rehabilitated.

Crucifixions are to the right.
