Fast, Furious, and facing the Magistrate

johnboy 10 July 2012 117

ACT Policing has charged an 18-year-old man with multiple theft charges, including that of several high performance cars, after a search warrant was executed on a Kingston residence yesterday.

The cars, a Porsche Boxster, a Porsche Cayenne and a Subaru Impreza WRX, were all driven away after the ignition keys were stolen during a burglary on a residential address in Kingston last week.

The Cayenne was later recovered on Dairy Flat Road in Fyshwick, the WRX in Kingston, and the Boxster in a church carpark in Narrabundah.

Acting on information received and forensic material obtained, around 11.45am yesterday (Monday, July 9) police executed the search warrant and seized a number of items. The alleged offender, who was present at the time of the warrant, was subsequently arrested and conveyed to the ACT Watch House.

He will face the ACT Magistrates court today charged with a series of offences including taking a motor vehicle without consent, possession of a prohibited substance, theft and aggravated burglary.

Update on the germ is that he will remain in custody until at least December.

PBO the man to do the job is R Lee Ermey, the DI from Full Metal Jacket and a chopper pilot in Apocalypse now. He was a DI in the Marine Corps.

Back to reality though, why not just let him go. He’ll steal another car and hopefully wrap himself round a tree and make the gene pool a little bit cleaner.

The magistrate adjourned the bail application until later this month to hear more evidence about possible support mechanisms for Goolagong.

No judicial officer,of sound mind,would release the ‘germ’ back into society regardless of how many support mechanisms are made available to him as they will inevitably fail due to his unbridled passion for anti-social behaviour.He is an accident waiting to happen!

The court heard Goolagong’s DNA was matched to at T-shirt found in the Nissan Skyline stolen from Kambah, his fingerprints were found on the iPad in the Impreza and his learner driver’s licence was found under the driver’s seat of the Boxster.

How could someone whom it is argued is unfit to plead be entitled to a drivers licence, albeit only a permit at this stage.

Let’s hope sanity prevails, the DPP sticks their guns and the magistrate agrees with the DPP and this idiot gets whats coming to him. Society insists this villan receives his slap on the wrist; and possibly a stern finger waggling too.

While a lobotomy only takes 10 mins to do and would have the desired effect, para training is just an awful thing to do to some unfit civvie. Make them do the old basic fitness assessment (50 proper push ups, 100 proper sit-ups and a 5 km run in under 19 mins) from 20 years ago as well.

You left out the 20 chin-ups.

Have to leave some surprises, and if he gets upset then the DS (directing staff) are also trained in traditional methods of contact counselling all designed to make him a better person.

The right instructor can polish a turd into a brighter, shinier turd, some are even better. Some can turn shiny turds into men, and then turn them into into men who turn men into turds.

I remember a man who taught me this scared the crap out me at the time because he was so bone chillingly evil and condescending, but in a good way.

Warrant Officer “Rocket” Rundell was one of the scariest persons in the Army at the time ( but not the scariest) and would give the crazy Colonel from Apocalypse now a dressing down for being so soft if he ever got a chance, I believe that he could turn these kids around.

It’s much easier to pretend that you are dumb than to pretend that you are smart.

he latest on the germ is that the prosecution has challenged a psychiatrists claim that the germ was unfit to plead as he was apparently illiterate,innumerate and intellectually impaired which is extraordinary since he has was able to obtain a learner driver licence.

Psychiatrist Graham George has found the 18-year-old was “functioning well below a normal level” and was unfit to plead. Rather curious given the germ was able to answer 34 out of 35 questions drawn at random out of a 350 question pool.

Anyhow the case has been adjourned to October so i’ll be waiting with bated breath for more of the psychos extraordinary insights!

What is it with numpties in this town crashing into their own mates … first Mully, now the germ. Would have thought the chances of this happening ever would be slim-to-bugger-all.
Nor do I, in the main, believe in co-incidence. Makes me suspect that – in both cases – something was afoot involving all parties.
Grubs.

Maybe its a form of natural moron culling, when the herd gets too big for the local area to handle, 2 things could happen:

1: A pheremone like secretion is released from a special gland located in the areas behind the ears and buttocks which causes irrational behaviour before a suicidal zeal takes over causing them to charge at each other with the idea of removing themselves and their mate for the greater good of the herd and to help introduce new stock into the gene poo and raise the value of commodores. Douche Bogans have also developed a gland that regulates the ratio of tracksuits to bumbags in the Douche Bogans “crib” (A plural for a tightly knit herd of douche bogans).

2: Summernats

We have our own unique subset of boganity known as the “Douche Bogan”,A mysterious evolution of the bogan occurred in the early years of the decade causing a new look and new lifestyle for the “new bogan riche” .

The change was deeper than a simple Ed Hardy shirt, designer bum-bag and a squirt of joop, they started to have certain biological differences which made the different from the standard bogan, Neck tattoos started appearing which apparenlty mean something quite deep to the Japanese but would be lost on the average westerner (according to a local tattooist who assures me that they are the correct symbols), He was quoted as saying:

(Quote from “Texta”, local skin scribbler)

“Its not just VB and Tim-Tams anymore mate, when someone see’s your neck tattoo they will take a step back because you will seem so much more intelligenter than them because you have dragon written on your neck……..in asian, so tell me if i am wrong…and i am sure that i are not.

I have known the artist who drew them for 6 days and he wouldnt lie to me, he’s really asian and he knows what they all mean, everyone of them. Take it from me, when people see that bad boy on your neck they will step aside because you would probably know karate of have a ninja hidden on you somewhere.

Its a great way to get restecp and show how tough you are without having to get a whole dragon tattooed because that would blow the whole dole payment.

Aww yeah, I also heard that if 2 more C-Dores are removed from existence this week then we could see the collapse of the Peter Brock sticker industry as there would then be more stickers than cars.”

I propose the following. A boot camp facility will be setup on the remote wasteland of Heard Island in the Southern Ocean. Participants ordered by the courts to attend such a facility for a specified length of time will be ushered to a fast track Army training course in static line parachute jumping I envisage this taking no more than 5 days. They will then all be bundled into a C17 transport plane and flown to Heard Island where they will jump out for an ocean splash down just off the island and will be picked up by zodiacs. They will then spend at least 12 months in tents attending daily self improvement courses.

Nah bugger that a simple lobotomy will do the trick!

I recommend many many years of therapy in a controlled psychiatric institution followed by several years in boot camp.

Boot-up-the-arse camp.

I wonder what condition his internal organs are in? There are some much more deserving people than this amoeba out there who could really do with a nice, healthy pink liver, or maybe a couple seeking a matching pair of chocolate-brown kidneys.

Porkhunt, I doubt there is a one size fit’s all approach to this or a “point” where incarceration is automatic (other than uncontrollable violence towards others). Apparently with Mental Health, the rules are that someone has to be taken into hospital if they are a risk to themselves, or others or their reputation is at risk and unfortunately this doesn’t happen all the time. Then we have the argument of whether drugs should be legalised or not (I’m convinced crime would be reduced if they were legalised). I like the idea of therapeutic communities – although the principles rely on voluntary participation rather than involuntary. There are probably heaps of people who would benefit from the structure, routine and safety of a community where they have a “place”. You know some tribes actively remove the mentally ill from the community only when they are really unwell, the rest of the time they just accept them as is. Most European countries always had a place for what they called “the village idiot”. They just accepted them as they were which probably helped to alleviate the us and them scenario.

If we are going to incarcerate people then the whole system has got to change…..not just the “magnificent” building out at Hume. I have a friend who sat in training with mostly Corrections Officers. When asked if inmates could be rehabilitated, none of them agreed. WTF are they doing out there except making money and (some) are making money out of the families of inmates by selling illegal sh*t to inmates. It’s as corrupt as the criminal world outside and teaches inmates nothing about values or reintegrating into society. There is nothing to do in there. Why aren’t they making number plates or clothes or doing laundry for the hospital. Why aren’t they given a purpose and left to their own devices in hours upon hours of boredom. I know several young guys who have been in for years (not months) and do the same stuff once they are released. How is this helpful?

What happened to prison farms where minimum security inmates had jobs and were made to help run the farm? Here we have minimum and maximum mixed together with fk all to keep them occupied. Not good.

With someone like Jermaine, I remember being surprised that he hadn’t been picked up by CPS years ago. But then again, they housed young people in the old Wanniassa Police Station……… seems youre too hard if your Aboriginal or beyond the age of three.

Jethro, thanks for your constructive criticisms and comments. I agree, there needs to be some incentive to create change – but change needs to happen in all areas of community not just left to sit with the disadvantaged.
