Maram glasser feels the long arm of the law

By johnboy - 1 July 2011 13

ACT Policing has arrested a 27-year-old Calwell man for an assault in Wanniassa earlier this year.

Around 11.00pm on Thursday February 17, a male was assaulted outside the Maram Nightclub, Wanniassa, when the alleged offender is believed to have thrown a glass at the victim’s head causing significant cuts to the victim’s eye.

The offender left the scene and a first instance warrant was sworn for his arrest.

Yesterday afternoon the suspect was sighted by an off duty Tuggeranong patrol member in Calwell. Police attended the man’s location where he was arrested and conveyed to the ACT Watch House.

The man will be charged with recklessly inflict grievous bodily harm and will face the ACT Magistrates Court today.

Significant cuts as in the loss of vision in an eye, perhaps? BTW, my definition of ‘glassing’ is to use a glass as a weapon against another person. It’s not suddenly less serious because it was thrown.

Do you also conclude that someone who throws a knife at someone else suddenly less serious than directly stabbing them? What about someone who throws a rock at someone as opposed to someone who holds the rock in their hand and uses it as a weapon.

Maybe the fact that your definition of ‘glassing’ is so broad, explains why you dont see how a hand-held weapon can be more serious than an airborne object. This tends to be the problem with the law, one term covers many varied options. The same way a burnout law applies to someone who is a bit heavy on the clutch and gets a little chirp from the tyres the same way it applies to someone who pours oil or soap on the road and lights it up for 100 yards. Sure, theyre both technically ‘burnouts’, but only someone who follows the exact letter of the law (without looking at the facts) would say that neither instance is less/more serious.

That’s the stupidest thing I’ve read today. Thanks.

Throwing a glass at someone is not the same thing as a glassing – although obviously that doesn’t make it ok. It can cause not insignificant cuts (Significant? What does that mean?). A glassing is when someone uses a broken glass bottle/glass as a hand-held weapon. Throwing a glass at someone probably won’t kill them. Glassing someone easily can. Not the same thing.

Stoning is the same when you throw it or pound them with it?

Have to agree with Tooks – you never know how the glass will impact. Foresight of Consequences applies here.

Thugs. Screw them. Give them the option of prison *or* one testicle. Per offense. I’d make the world a nicer place, particularly if it will stop ’em breeding.

Impressive enough to catch the little Scroat but even more impressive that the Officer was of duty at the time but still presumably called it in. Big raps to the Officer concerned.

+1.

Very good scum sensing abilities.

what a disgraceful act – glad he has been caught.

Well done coppers.

Now, let’s get the judiciary to get their sh!t together.

Good work. Hope they throw the proverbial book at his face.
