Canberra cop busted for wearing fake medals

By johnboy 31 July 2013 61

News have word of AFP officer Kelly Wingkee Luk causing a stir with a penchant for wearing medals un-earned:

According to the Australian New Zealand Military Imposters (ANZMI) website, Luk has no entitlement to wear any medals but it has posted images of him wearing numerous medals including the Australian Active Service Medal (AASM) with a clasp and the Australian Defence Medal (ADM).

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) confirmed that Luk was a serving member of their organisation and that he had been disciplined for wearing inappropriate medals.

We don’t know if he’s still with ACT Policing, but he certainly used to be.

What’s Your opinion?

Perhaps our way of life would be very very different, but who are you to say it would be “worse”? It’s not like Japan doesn’t have some good things going for it as well as some bad things, but it’s hardly a living hell….

It’s hard for me to believe that such abysmal ignorance is prevalent in our society.

Pre WWII Japan was dominated by a bunch of hoods who had taken the Japanese warrior code of Bushido and perverted it for their own use. Those guys were right up there with Hitler and Stalin, and if they had won the war Australia really would have been hell on earth. Just ask anybody from a country that lived through Japanese occupation during the war how they felt about it. Or Google for “Rape of Nanking” if you want some specifics of how it all went down at the time.

Mrs Thumper’s grandfather was captured in the fall of Singapore. He spent the war in a japanese prison camp. A delightful place called Changi. Don’t kid yourself, the japanese treated their prisioners like dirt. No, worse, as if they were some sort of sub life, not worthy to do anything. Beatings, starvation, humiliation, don’t kid yourself, we are talking the very worst of human behaviour, quite unbelievable really. Reading his diaries is harrowing. He was 20 years old and never got over the treatment they dealt out.

Living hell? It was worse, hell would have been a break from the cruelty and pain.

We should never forget this.

And don’t kid yourself that the Allies were any better, it’s the winners that write history and whitewash it accordingly

Of course you assume if not for the “plucky little diggers” Japan would have won the war, which is rubbish. It was a World War, for the duration of which Stalin was on our side. So things would not be much different than they are now, except we’d be speaking Japanese and eating a lot more sushi

Don’ty read this on a full stomach:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_war_crimes

Especially these bits:
“…the number of people killed by the Imperial Japanese Army germ warfare and human experiments is around 580,000…”

Or this,
“…the Japanese started selecting prisoners and every day one prisoner was taken out and killed and eaten by the soldiers. I personally saw this happen and about 100 prisoners were eaten at this place by the Japanese. The remainder of us were taken to another spot 50 miles [80 km] away where 10 prisoners died of sickness. At this place, the Japanese again started selecting prisoners to eat. Those selected were taken to a hut where their flesh was cut from their bodies while they were alive and they were thrown into a ditch where they later died…”

The bombs came years after Australian forces including the ADF had already prevented the Japanese from gaining control of Australia.

I joined when I was 17. And so did many others I was at kapooka with. I think 17 is a fine age to start.

The counter argument would be, “of course you think so, because they got you early enough to brainwash you”.

First world problems to the max.

Better than 3rd world problems, Comic. You can thank our service men and women for that.

Interesting thoughts. How do you figure that? In which incident were we at risk of becoming a 3rd world country?

Mind you, the defence forces should remove “defence” from their title too, because they last defended Australia in 1945.

We must never defend other people in other countries, because They’re Over There And We’re Over Here. With great power comes…no responsibility whatsoever, apparently.

But why stop at ’45? No Australian fought in WW1 or WW2 out of a sense of duty to the greater good – they were just brainwashed Commonwealth imperialists. Anybody who’s fought since then was just an American sympathiser.

What leads you to believe that we would be a third world country or fail to have freedoms in this present day just because we might have become a Japanese colony?

You mean other than the entirety of the experience of people living in states invaded by Japan and its allies during the Second World War, and the experience of other people living under totalitarian regimes today?

But perhaps you’re a pure-bred Japanese Aryan who’s not Jewish, gay, handicapped, critical of the state, reading the wrong books, talking to the wrong people, related to the wrong people, or dobbed in by your neighbour for no reason, in which case I’m sure your life would be just as good as it is now.

He sure fitted a lot into two years in the army. I didn’t know they recruited them so young either – the UN says anyone under 18 is a Child Soldier, and I tend to agree with them. The defence forces should be recruiting adults in their early 20s at the youngest, so that their personality is already formed.

I assume that the Richard Levesque on that site is the same one who works for the ACT Government?

Yeah I’m sure the Japanese had no further plans for Australia at all during WWII… Oh, wait, they did. And they ended up being rejected because of our ADF and our allies.

Also, “schtick”? Really? How passé.

Were we a third world country during WWII? Was Japan a third world country during WWII? Is Japan a third world country today? Is Japan a democracy?

What leads you to believe that we would be a third world country or fail to have freedoms in this present day just because we might have become a Japanese colony?

Are you suggesting that they would have slaughtered each and every Australian as part of their takeover? Or simply assumed control over the territory, subsuming our populace into theirs?

There are a lot of ifs and buts in such an equation and none of them point definitively to poor living conditions or a lack of freedom.

Perhaps our way of life would be very very different, but who are you to say it would be “worse”? It’s not like Japan doesn’t have some good things going for it as well as some bad things, but it’s hardly a living hell….

Firslty, “This whole ‘the ADF saved your freedom’ schtick makes me giggle. How can anyone believe this inane rubbish?” is what I was referring to.

Secondly, the Japan of 2013 is a very different place than it would have been had they not lost the war. Perhaps you need to look at what was done to Nanking to see why things here would not have been all peaches and cream if we didn’t have an ADF.

Irrelevant. The big bombs is what stopped the Japanese in ww2, not the ADF. This would have happened with or without the ADF.

I cannot believe you are serious. I thought an ex grunt would have some sense of history ffs.

Can you please explain how I am wrong?

I’m not saying our boys did a great job fighting off the Japanese and their sacrafice is well deserving of our praise and honour, but seriously, the atomic bombs ended the war, not the ADF. Australia would never have been made a third world country by the Japanese.

Well dang, isn’t it funny where people pop up! LAst time I saw Luk we were both at ADFA – not sure if he graduated tho.

    Ponying up the soldiers for the winning team has had a lot to do with our place at the economic top table.

    That’s the real sacrifice made for Australia.
