Judge gives knifepoint carjacker a chance to get her ‘act together’

By dexi - 28 November 2008 104

The Canberra Times is running with the headline: Judge gives knifepoint carjacker a chance to get her ‘act together’

I  thought everyone should have the opportunity to do a little criticising.

I would be interested in what else had been going on in Amanda’s life that would lead to such a stupid action. Not thinking does not do it for me.

    “But if she breached any of the conditions, which include an order not to consume any drugs or alcohol, she would got to jail. he said he knew he would probably be criticised for his sentencing decision, particularly by the victim. Bastow is due to appear again in May next year.

What’s Your opinion?

I think the fact she was carrying around a knife suggests that it wasn’t a “one off” occurrence. Lock her up please!

I feel a bit bored today so I reckon I’ll go do me some carjacking! What are they going to do about it, huh?

Add to that.
CT….
“She now has three children by different fathers, all of whom were abusive. “

She has a history of something………….That would be what……..Abuse?

All three fathers where abusive. What are the odds?

The Brad said :

And 5 shots of Tequila? That would only just put her over the limit.

Lame excuses.

I disagree. Five 30ml shots of 40%AC Tequila will put you above .09. Try this calculator:

I’m not defending her in any way, and wish the sentence were more severe.

Anyone got Refshauge’s address? I think I’ll go round, cut him with a knife and then tell him not to take it personally because “I’m not thinking”. The cheap Slut should have been put away.

“She maintained that she had never done anything like that before and that she had no history of violence.

But she admitted that alcohol made her angry, and that ”when I get angry, I can’t control myself”.”

no history of violence, yet she knows when she is angry she can’t control herself. Hmmmmm

That’s some serious karma…

Very angry gods that day…

ABC News is reporting a NZ women who stopped a car, threatened the driver with a knife then stole her handbag. The women was then killed by a car while running across the road trying to escape. That’s one way to avoids the necessity of fronting the courts….

”when I get angry, I can’t control myself”.

Isn’t that what anger is. Uncontrolled emotions.
And 5 shots of Tequila? That would only just put her over the limit.

Lame excuses.

I hope the kids find and stay in a good home, otherwise, we’re likely to have triple the trouble in 20 years.

Ahhhh, missed that line. Hopefully they got a stable loving family and get a decent chance in life.

The children were placed in foster care earlier this year.

But if she breached any of the conditions, which include an order not to consume any drugs or alcohol, she would got to jail.

I’m betting that this won’t happen…

neanderthalsis 1:06 pm 28 Nov 08

Of course she deserves a chance to get her life in order, she only:

1 Violently attack an inocent person at knifepoint
2 Cause them to fear for their life
3 Steal their car
4 Destroy their self confidence so they live in continual fear

She did say sorry and it’s not as if she shoplifted or some other heinous crime.

She has had an oportunity to get her life in order already: the 21 years up until she decided that committing violent crimes is a good way to spend some quality time with friends. Take her kids away so that they get a chance at a normal life and lock the silly bint up.

poor girl, couldn’t afford a gun obviously

Mr Evil 12:37 pm 28 Nov 08

I have been angry and depressed a number of times, and I’ve never had any desire to threaten someone with a knife and demand they get out of their car.

She sounds like such a worthwhile individual: I give her three months before she f*cks up again.
