Watson bad boy catches the book – mate walks free

By johnboy - 26 March 2005 10

Murdoch’s News has the interesting story of some bad boys trying to run from the fuzz on big round bottom street (Bunda). The driver is in a spot of bother.

A 20-year-old Watson man was charged with driving with a prescribed concentration of alcohol in his blood while on a provisional drivers license, dangerous driving, driving an unregistered vehicle, driving without third party insurance, and possession of a prohibited substance.

Most unfairly, his partner in crime has got away scot free from the passenger seat. We all know who was egging him on don’t we?

What’s Your opinion?

maybe it’s just guilt by proxy on my part.

Well while we’re being picky we should note that if you blow 0.05 on the nice policeman’s nice little machine you still need to go and have another blow at the nice Police Station’s nice big machine.

If you’re exactly 0.05 on the roadside you’re almost certain to blow under by the time they get you back to the station. (Unless you need a swig of the hard stuff to steady your nerves on the way)

It would still mess up your evening but at least not your whole life.

Has anyone noticed the very poor rate of convictions for trials brought in the ACT Supreme Court? Last year I think there were about 5 guilty verdicts and the first guilty verdict for a murder in a VERY long time – probably because the prosecutor was a hired gun from Sydney. Why are the conviction rates so low? Is anyone worried about this? Is it poorly prepared investigations and evidence collection or poor prosecuting? Is the DPP doing his job?
