Greenpeace wheat raiders summonsed

ACT Policing will summons two NSW women to face the ACT Magistrates Court in relation to the ongoing CSIRO wheat crop investigation.

The two women, one aged 47 from the Sydney suburb of Willoughby and the other 34, from North Bondi, will be summonsed to appear in the ACT Magistrates Court charged with a number of offences, including trespass and damaging Commonwealth property.

The charges are the result of an ongoing investigation into the forced entry and trespass onto Commonwealth property in the ACT, and damage to that property on July 13.

ACT Policing’s Criminal Investigations have conducted extensive inquiries, which included executing a number of search warrants in NSW.

During the execution of the search warrant at the Greenpeace headquarters in the Sydney suburb of Ultimo on Thursday, July 21, police seized a number of evidentiary items which are still being reviewed.

The investigation is continuing as police hope to identify further people who may have been involved, or assisted in the commission of the offences.

The women are expected to face the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date.

I say give them some time on the receiving end of a whipper-snipper, see how they like it

Perhaps this is the kind of emergency that Jamison’s whip phone is provided for?

I like he title of this post. Sounds like the raiders have a new sponsorship deal – and it includes ‘green’. Perfect.

FFS it’s Canberra, there’ll be no meaningful punishment.

I wish we had the “full force of the law” herabouts to bring down on them. As it is pleading “I’m a mum, I’m dumb” will probably see them off with a light wrist slapping.

Any chance of CSIRO recovering its wasted research costs for this one? That’ll teach these idiots a valuable lesson.

Recovering it from Greenpeace, since the act was committed under their banner.

I still have a quiet chuckle to myself at the absurdity of Ms McCabe’s statement: “I’m sick of being treated like a dumb Mum who doesn’t understand the science.”

Heather, let me spell it out for you. Your actions proved beyond doubt that you are a dumb mum and you don’t understand the science.

When you’ve put in several years of study in a discipline that relates to genetic engineering and have grasped the science, and still wish to chop down other people’s work to satisfy your own beliefs, you may be able to repeat your statement with at least a modicum of credibility. Until then your excuses for your apalling behaviour are as hollow as the space between your ears appears to be.

These women will drive from Sydney to Canberra to cut down a plant at CSIRO, but I bet on the weekends they make their husbands mow the lawn and whipper-snip the edges, because its hard dirty work.

Good, give them a decent punishment not a slap on the wrist.
