Amber Jane Westin – In profile

By johnboy 18 November 2006 64

The Canberra Times has put together a comprehensive profile (With a picture! Welcome to to 1996!) of Amber Jane Westin the alleged culprit from last Tuesday’s tragedy in Woden.

It seems increasingly clear from the reportage that the incident does not fall under what most of us would consider to be a “pursuit”. Which is not to say that questioning the pursuit guidelines makes the questioner “anti-police”.

It also seems clear, in my opinion, that Amber Westin has a complete disregard for the law and, also in my opinion, the judges and magistrates who in the past refused to lock her up should consider their own part in this tragedy.

What’s Your opinion?

Have a look at this press statement from the US. A Police Department that actually defends itself rather than letting the local paper make up whatever it wants!

“Magistrates can’t sentence people to look after themselves”

Hence the existence of prisons. If they can’t look after themselves a little gaol time may adjust the maintenance deficiency

Sorry, KandyA, I’ll save my sympathy for the innocent people in this tragedy and others who despite life dealing them a shitty hand still manage to keep within the law.

You are certainly entitlted to your opinion, I respect that, but the malice you see is based on the fact that ordinary law abiding citizens are sick and tired of these people blaming everybody and everything but themselves.

the poor dear girl, I wonder if she had any sort of support in her now (or was it already) completely and utterly fkt life, that she would have got to the state of driving scattered, down a road when she should not have been.
Magistrates can’t sentence people to look after themselves, or for their friends and family to reform them. The social programs that deal with people in need dont come cheap, and have to contend with obvious cost and undemonstrable preventative benefits, in the face of malicious carping about bleeding hearts etc, (you know, by most of you) and general penny-pinching for any such $$losing program. So, with apologies to Bert, whose loss and pain I hope I never experience, I think ive made the case that you, the riot-act carpers, are responsible for this tragedy. Your malice ills me.
At least spare a thought for her child, who will surely need some love and care to avoid some similar booner fate.
