Guess what colour the Commodore in the police pursuit was?

By johnboy - 11 August 2012 46

ACT Policing has arrested a 24-year-old Dunlop man following a vehicle pursuit in Belconnen yesterday afternoon (Friday, August 10).

Around 2.20pm Belconnen Patrol members were conducting a mobile patrol along Kuringa Drive when they saw a white Holden Commodore travelling at excessive speed.

Police activated their lights and sirens attempting a traffic stop on the vehicle, however the vehicle failed to stop and a pursuit commenced.

The pursuit travelled past several Belconnen suburbs before being terminated by the Belconnen Patrol.

A short time later members of the public flagged down another patrol and advised a vehicle, matching the description of the car involved in the pursuit, had collided with a wooden retaining wall in their front yard. The car sustained some minor damage before driving off.

The vehicle, which is suspected to be stolen, was located several streets away with a flat tyre.

A man matching the description of the driver was located a short distance away. He had the keys to the car in his possession and was a disqualified driver.

A maximum speed of 160 km/h was reached during the pursuit which lasted for 1 minute and 19 seconds.

The man was charged with driving while disqualified and several traffic offences. He received Watch House bail to appear in the ACT Magistrates Court on Tuesday, August 21 2012.

KB1971 people like you are the reason we have people who commit crimes like this. This individual was already a disqualified driver, therefore had previously commited a crime. The fact that he tried to evade the police is evidence of his blatant disregard for the law.

I wonder how you would feel if, during his 160km/h jaunt, he’d rounded a corner and hit and killed one of your relatives. Would you feel so lenient then? I really despise do-gooders like you who think we should give scum like this playstations and soothing counselling sessions, etc.

OK, Im the jury!

2 years, without parole.

Jury here just says guilty or not guilty, the judge hands out the sentence.

FFS why can’t we have the death penalty for oxygen thieves like this. A .22 calibre bullet is so much cheaper than court cases and jailtime.

Can you find Bill & Ted, jump into their time machine & go back to the century you came from?

Why do you need a time machine to get proper justice?

Why am I not surprised you piped up?

So, you think that someone who has comitted a minor crime needs to be shot?

Skewed sense of punishment much?

I’m sure he could still make a valuable contribution to society after we cut his hands off…after all every one deserves a second chance before the .22

If brains was electricity, he’d be a walking blackout…
