This morning’s AFP media releases contain two items worth note; one for poor timing and one for poor judgement.
First up there is this story where our misfortunate anti-hero allegedly attempted to rob a Civic service station in the early hours of Saturday morning. The release states;
“The attendant immediately activated a duress alarm, alerting ACT Policing who had a patrol in close proximity to the service station.
The attendant managed to stall the alleged offender until police arrived a few seconds later and arrested the male.”
When they say “close proximity” they mean real close. Rumour mill is that police were off there even before the alarm was activated – they arrived to fill up!
The second piece feels close to home for me. Back in the dark ages while I was still at school one of my closet friends lost his elder sister in a car accident where she had been in the back of a ute. This young man is lucky that all he’ll be appearing before court for is in relation to a drink driving charge. Blowing 4 time over the normal limit, 10 times for him considering he’s a P plater, he also had 6 other young people sitting in the tray of his ute. I hope they realise how lucky they are.
