Amber Rams Again

By Jazz - 5 November 2007 31

Amber Jane Westin has rammed another elderly woman and been sentenced again, this time for assault with a shopping trolley (no license for that either) according to this ABC story. Shes been sentenced to 2 months gaol to be served at the same time as her current sentence.

The story says that she was serving 7 months for her last killing, but I thought it was eighteen, possibly she has seven months to go or have they reduced her sentence for good behaviour?

What’s Your opinion?

Oh, I misread, D&M. Still, she punched the woman only after contact was made with her child.
Look, I’m not apologizing for this woman. All I’m sick of is the people who say she should be sterilized etc. Amber Jane Westin is still a human being. She’s troubled, obviously. But she’s a druggie, and one with a kid at that. She needs rehabilitation alot more than prison.

She’ll be trying to go up against Chuck for the title soon and although Amber is a law unto herself, I’ve got my money on Chuck.

On topic – Concurrent sentences are a joke. Why bother.

Amber is above the law. Amber is the law.

Well steering those shopping trolleys is quite hard so perhaps the judge awarded her time off for managing to connect with the old lady?

which is a polite way of saying that if our magistrates had denied her bail in the first place she would never been out on the road to kill that other lady.

this matter predates the driving charge btw

how do you get a sentence of only 7 months for reckless driving (runnning from the cops) occasioning death?

People jump up and down about at the police about that girl that got killed in civic during a chase and, yet when they catch someone actually responsible for the crime they get 7 months??!!

It’s society’s fault that Amber punched the woman – and we should all feel ashamed of ourselves.

Really, Deadmandrinking? The way I read the article, Amber’s FRIEND accused the VICTIM of staring, and the woman accidentally made contact with a child that Amber was holding after she and the friend scuffled. Then Amber punched her.

The way the article describes it, hard to have anything but sympathy for the victim, who seems blameless according to this version of events.

oxygen theiving, knuckle dragging malcontempt, who probably ought be fired from this fine nation via catapult.

sentenced to 2 months to be served at the same time as her current sentence??? what’s the friggin point then? it hasnt added any time to her sentence… she really is scum and should be locked up for a long time

Deadmandrinking 12:45 pm 05 Nov 07

Well, the canberra times did say that apparently, the older woman accused her of staring and made contact with the child sometime during the ensuing scuffle, after which Amber punched her. That needs to be taken into account.
God I hope she works herself out.

Mr Evil 12:10 pm 05 Nov 07

She really is all class, this one.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Amber’s fault, would it!
