Mazda boy racers brought to book

By johnboy - 9 August 2012 13

ACT Policing has arrested two more people following vehicle pursuits last Thursday (August 2).

Officers from the Criminal Investigations Property Crime Team arrested an 18-year-old Banks man and a 17-year-old Southside boy, after simultaneous search warrants were executed at properties in Banks and Isabella Plains early today (Wednesday, August 8).

Police will allege they were both involved in the theft of a white Mazda Bravo utility and a white Mazda 121 and subsequently involved in pursuits with police last week.

The 18-year-old was a juvenile at the time of the offence. He received Watch House bail and will be summonsed to appear in the ACT Children’s Court at a later date. He is charged with two counts of riding in a stolen motor vehicle.

The 17-year-old will appear in ACT Children’s Court tomorrow charged with one count of drive a stolen motor vehicle. Bail will be opposed.

An 18 year old man and a 17 year old “boy”………what makes the difference? They are both teens. Maybe living in Banks makes you a “man”?

Yes, you make a good point.

Try them both as adults.

At what age should people be tried as adults?

Around the age that they steal cars and proceed to drive them at dangerous speeds, placing the lives and safety of other roads users in jeopardy, I suspect. It happens to be around 17 in this case.

so if a 13 year old steals a car and drives it at ‘dangerous speeds, placing the lives and safety of other roads users in jeopardy’, should they also be tried as an adult?

yes

So … there’s no point in trying anyone as anything apart from an adult?

If thirteen is the age of criminal culpability under the appropriate jusidiction than, yes. Any barrack room lawyer care to weight in.?

Well … they learn about ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ at school, yeah? So … probably start trying them as adults as soon as they’ve been at school for a week or two.

Yeah baby! Banks represent!
I guess the boy was driving the 121 and the ‘man’ the ute? Hahahaha! It says he was 17 at the time of the offence. So sounds like he’s got a nice birthday pressie now?!
Anyway, society *made* them steal the cars and race! Stupid society…..

At least one of them was, at the time of the incident, legally allowed to be in charge of a deadly weapon – a car. If society deems they are responsible enough for that, they should also be deemed to be accountable for their actions in an adult court.

For God’s sake, Violet, at 18, 17, 16, these clowns know right from wrong.
