Man in court after spitting incident

By Canfan - 18 December 2014 5

A 21-year-old man from NSW will face the ACT Magistrates Court today (Thursday, 18 December) charged with common assault and driving whilst disqualified after an incident in Tuggeranong on Monday (December 15).

Police will allege that the victim had been driving his car on Isabella Drive on Monday evening around 8.30pm when a vehicle in front of him, a blue Proton, slammed on its brakes suddenly, causing his Mercedes to run into the back of the Proton.

Both cars sustained damage. The 42-year-old victim told police the driver of the Proton then approached him and began to verbally abuse him, and spat on him.

Police attended the location and subsequent investigations led to the alleged offender’s required attendance at Tuggeranong Police Station on Wednesday evening where he was interviewed and arrested for the above matters.

Police will be opposing bail.

What….. Please hand in your licence.

I hate drivers that drive in a way that they blame others for being in their way.

If the attacker was doing 20km/h its no excuse for driving up the backside.

The irony of this incident is that the alleged offender was driving a Proton which is made in Malaysia, a constitutional monarchy with Islam as its state religion.

Had the Mercedes driver kept a safe following distance he would likely not have collided with said 21 year old disqualified driver, keeping both his car and his dignity intact.

That said… if you read the full article from the Canberra Times, you’ll know this was a religiously motivated incident. The victim was targeted because of his attendance at a local Islamic centre – the criminal made a specific effort to have the victim run into him.

This incident doesn’t come down to ‘dignity’. It comes down to a hate motivated crime from a criminal group that should have the full force of the law dealt to it.

Sounds like a “lone wolf” incident to me – same as the Lindt Cafe one.
