Images of Canberra – when kids are bored and cops can’t be bothered

By gungsuperstar 25 February 2013 24

I don’t quite know what to make of today’s article in the CT about the increasing Gungahlin police beat. After initially being horrified at the notion that they had quiet times, I came to the realisation that the article is actually an excuse for the lack of action here in Gungahlin.

Here’s what happens in Gungahlin when kids are board and when the police are twiddling their thumbs on quiet nights.

These are from a segment of the Palmerston floodway/nature reserve, all within an area of about 200 square metres:

And of course, the creme de la creme.

The justification for all of it…

Cultural enrichment by boring, mindless, stupid tagging!

I can handle, and even appreciate graffiti where it’s artistic.

Apparently this group of kids don’t have a shred of artistic talent between them.

Apparently the police, who have been notified of this, are too busy with traffic stops and petrol thefts.

And apparently you can buy a dozen cans of spray paint and no one at the hardware store cares…

What’s Your opinion?

Gungahlin population = around 50,000
Police cars patrolling = one or two

And you wonder why petty crime isn’t being nipped in the bud?

I’m quite impressed that they spelt ‘cultural enrichment’ correctly! They may be dumb arses to think that graffiti is ‘good” but at least they can spell correctly!

The taggers are better spellers than the OP.

If you catch them and beat the f*** out of them, they won’t do it again

Let’s hope the police take the same approach to you when the kids you beat the f*** out of report you.
