Message to Canberra Police: I Hear You! (wink wink)

By johnboy 10 May 2007 51

Recently the constabulary have been very active in these parts. They (or their supporters) have suggested that anyone who’s ever been to Gorman House is a criminal with an opinion undeserving of consideration, that asking questions of policing is “anti-police”, that a care for civil liberties indicates a desire to shield alleged pedophiles from the full weight of the law.

I’ll admit I was surprised by these ignorant, thuggish, and prejudiced views coming from a sector we expect so much from.

But then I had a revelation!

Our intelligent and perspicacious constabulary could never expect such crude and intimidatory tactics to have any effect. Therefore these noxious postings must be for another reason. I can only assume that they too are as concerned as I am, and wish to goad this website into further examination of the issues.

It’s OK boys. I get your message. I understand how deeply concerned you must have been to ensure that RiotACT doesn’t let up on these important issues.

I won’t let you down!

What’s Your opinion?

Yeah, it’s a beauty isn’t it? I’d like to claim it as my own but I think the derivation is US vernacular.

And if you’d care to visit my blog JB, the poem currently up was written by one of our admins. I don’t think it needs much explanation. In the thread that announced his death, the outpouring of grief went on for pages. His folks came on line and thanked us for our support and told us how much it meant to them. One of our members attended the funeral. Our membership probably only numbered about 3000 at the time but we raised around $1500, which was used to send flowers to the funeral, a gift to his parents, and donated the remainder (over $750US) to one of Jack’s favorite breast cancer charities. It wasn’t the first child his parents had lost you see.

The reason he engendered that sort of response was because he acted in the best interests of our community not himself. And good admins are hard to find.

I wonder if your sudden demise would inspire the same sort of heartfelt response and loyalty. Somehow, I think not. You might want to spend some time asking yourself why.

What’s more, only you could be a big enough arseclown to turn a discussion in which I was defending you, when farq and another referred back to my stuff, I continued on with the original topic but replied to them in the process, and then you turned around and proved what a total arseclown you indeed are by attacking me.

Logical debate ain’t your strong suit is it JB?

And your forum software’s a clunky piece of shit. I’ll leave you to fix it. (tho’ I’ll admit the design is reasonably tasteful)

Look JB I didn’t start the discussion about my issues. I simply responded to comments made to me. If you can’t manage to make your dislike for me a little less obvious by directing your comments not only to me but also to the person who actually brought the topic up then, as I suggested to you before, I think you need to grow up.

You definitely need to do so before you go poncing about the place pretending to be some sort of ex-journo when in fact the best you’ve been able to manage is working for one of those news aggregation services that all the real/b> journos in the press gallery submit their stories to for distribution and syndication. You sure need to grow something before you will ever succeed at running a political blog that has any real influence let alone credibility. I’d suggest a little humility, the ability to swallow your pride, and admitting to your mistakes should also be high on your list of “Things JB Needs To Do To Be Taken Seriously”.

I’m getting stressed reading this stuff.

Time for a nice quiet walk.

You’re really not helping here Chester.

Can I suggest discussions of your issues are best conducted on your blog?

K thx Bye

Who cares what the medical history says, it can’t be used against you. If anything it can be brought up as mitigating circumstances by you and you only.

Actually farq it can be used against you.

My favourite is: “You were sick, that’s why you were upset and that you believe you were hard done by”.

However, in the real world, it was and still is “You were harassed etc and then you became sick as a consequence of another person’s actions”.

Medical history can be used in order for another group to smear a person’s personal and professional life. Funnily enough it still goes on even with Whistler Blowers and HREOC.

Sorry for continuing the OT rant 🙂
