Angry mother demands an end to police pursuits (CT 24 March 2008, p6)

spoonbill 24 March 2008 119

[Ed – we have received 3 submissions today regarding this same CT article, obviously a story that has got a few of our readers thinking. Rather than posting all three or just one all three can be found here, with the posters name before each of their take on the story.]

Submitted by spoonbill;
The Canberra Times today carries a story about a mother who is angry that her 17 year-old son, a recidivist offender, became a paraplegic in a car accident while being pursued by police. She is quoted as saying ‘he’d hurt people through his break and enters but never hurt anyone physically, he is not a dangerous person’.

While any life cut short in this manner is sad, I would have thought she should have a long hard look at herself and her apparent lack of parenting skills which have led to her son taking up breaking and entering in the first place. I think if she did so she would see where the blame squarely lies; and it is not with the police. Furthermore why the Canberra Times sees a need to print this drivel, albeit on a long weekend is beyond me. It is another indication that the Canberra Times is a second class rag and not worth the $1.20 price tag.

It is a pity that Nyssa is temporarily off line. I would have been interested to read her comments on this issue. Perhaps Ingee or that absolute legend Maelinar could fill in with some suitable tripe. One only has to balance the emotive comments by Ms Mann against the considered and relevant comments made by Commander Connelly to see where the truth lies.

Whilst it is sad that Mr Miatke suffered horrible injuries, the only saving grace is that he was the master of his own destiny and no one else.

The Canberra Times reports that Cherie Mann has been charged with making phone threats against several ACT police officers over the her teenage son becoming paralysed when hitting a tree on Majurra Ave on 17 December 2007, fleeing police who were trying to arrest him over the previous three months.

So let me get this straight. Police try to arrest the kid and mum does not assist them over 3 months whilst he still lives in Canberra with their duties because her son is not a violent offender?

Diddums.

“well as we see here some people cant handle the truth,”

What I can’t handle is bad spelling. Do some “RESERCH” and use a dictionary!!!

You know, I was hoping that Cherie would have been one of the Charny scrags involved in that cat-fight last week. SO unlike her not to be involved in a community event of that nature.

“The Truth Will B Told will never be admitted to MENSA”

Sounds like he’d make a good journalist for the Canberra Times though.

There are three certainties in life:

1. Death
2. Taxes
3. The Truth Will B Told will never be admitted to MENSA

TTWBT – You seem to be very well informed on what happened that day. What is your relationship with the driver?

Why is this thread still ongoing?

I know the research on this only too well. The car WAS stolen, the “kid” would have gladly run over any Police Officer or anyone else in society that got in his way of escape. Society is MUCH better off without this person on the streets anymore.

Nuff said, get over it so called “Truthful” one. You don’t know your head from your…..

TTWBT: You are digging yourself a larger hole with every post you write. Is this your intention ? If you want a different response, try a different approach…

This thread is just so entertaining……

As I said when this thread originally started, this little shit got what he deserved.

…where ‘he’ got his attitude from, that is…

DJ DJ 9:57 pm 30 Jul 08

THE POLICE DID CHASE HIM!

I THINK THEY HIT HIM FROM THE BACK……

OR WHY ELSE WAS HE TRYING TO GET AWAY..

Innocent people don’t run from Police. Oops sorry. INNOCENT PEOPLE DON’T RUN FROM POLICE.

OR WHY ELSE WAS HE TRYING TO GET AWAY..

He was trying to get away because he was a little shit who broke the law and didn’t have the guts to face up to what he did. To blame the cops for some little wanker screwing up is pathetic – I guess now we know where we got his attitude from.

Lets all take turns at finishing this quote from ‘The Truth Will B Told’. I’ll start.

“DO SOMETHING MAKE A CHANGE” by going to school and learning how to spell.

Tooks Tooks 9:41 pm 30 Jul 08

The Truth Will B Told said :

well as we see here some people cant handle the truth,

Not when the ‘truth’ is coming from someone who can’t spell, can’t find the Caps Lock key and is spewing out retarded conspiracy theory gibberish.

Thumper Thumper 8:53 pm 30 Jul 08

Explain?

I can’t even spell it…

Headbonius Headbonius 8:49 pm 30 Jul 08

I can hear the X-Files music playing mysteriously in my head….can anyone explain this phenomenom?

Thumper Thumper 8:37 pm 30 Jul 08

I had a feeling that I may be moderated 😉
