ACT Policing and cutting your hair in the park

By johnboy - 5 December 2008 60

The all-seeing eye has come across an amusing blog post by a visiting techie, KeZ who tried to cut his own hair and ended up having an interview with the constabulary:

    “”Is there any reason you are out here cutting your hair?” the officer, having noticed the scissors, with the trimmer and mirror still placed before me, correctly surmised.”Erm, i needed a haircut so i went and bought some scissors and here i am cutting my hair,” i innocently replied.”Yes, but why are you cutting your own hair, here?” he enquired again.”Umm, it’s what i do. Every three weeks my hair requires cutting, so i cut it! I could hardly cut it in the hotel room, there would have been hair everywhere,” i responded dryly.

It goes on, so check out the whole post.

So, reasonable precautionary inquiry? Or needless hassle?

Your thoughts please.

What’s Your opinion?

Attention seeking idiot.

Depends on what really happened, whether the police were demanding and cranky (as some of them are) or friendly and curious (as some of them are). Storm in a teacup.

You’d need quite a long extension cord to do that in the park.

Probably just another stupid emo. Who cuts their hair in the park? Dumbass.

I used to cut my own hair a few years back.
It was very long and layered and it was just easier to give it a trim myself when I felt like it.
And plus I was a poor student so wasn’t keen on paying the ridulous amount charged by hairdressers to cut my hair..

Fair enough then! 🙂

I just thought you’d never get a very even cut when you cut your own hair?

His excuse for being out side is a bit lame. I use the shower then wash, dry and trim. The hair can go in the hotel bin. Ive clipped my dog in a hotel room. They where none the wiser.

i second ant’s comment. the thin blue line should be across a range of ‘goings on’ and be paying attention to all and sundry oddnesses. chap was spoken to, all sorted and ok, move along to next thing. if he’d been on the lam then he’d have been nabbed, becuase of good old curiosity.

no, PM, scissors are not illegal and were duly placed in the custody of our narrator. but what if said narrator had been, well, mentally unstable, and had some intentions toward self-harm, or harm of others?

good lads, well done. now, go find them lads damaging the fence…

You do know Kenny Koala is a fictional puppet with a policeman fist up his date. I do miss him. Kenny would be far more interested in educating young drug addicts than arresting them. Far more useful.

Feels like a bloody police state sometimes. Are scissors illegal? No. So, no need for police involvement.

Next I’ll be banned from using chopsticks in public because there’s the potential that I might choose to sharpen them and use them to poke out people’s eyes.

What sort of tool cuts their ownn hair anyway.

The Police should have tasered him for being a tight arse!

ant 10:47 am 05 Dec 08

It actually sounds like a bit of proper community/beat policing to me. I didn’t know they did that in Canberra any more. Back in the olden days, cops would wander around taking an interest in things. Anything odd got a second look.

I hope that bloke was planning to put his hair in the bin when he’d finished! Although birds like hair, to make nests.

A bully

Perhaps constable Kenny Koala should’ve been rounding up drug addicts in Garema place ie doing something useful.
