Police bash man

redvl 15 May 2009 102

Why is it that there is always something negative to say when the car club named “Rush Hour” meets, but there has been nothing reported about the Canberra Police who attended last nights meeting of the before mentioned car club bashing the absolute crap out of one of the people who attended this gathering?

So much for the police corruption of the old days not existing anymore. Any person caught bashing another person would be up on charges, and the matter would at least have a short mention in the news.

But obviously the police have a different way of dealing with the matter when they’re the ones doing the bashing.

Yes they had reason to place the suspect under arrest but where in their little rule book does it say “feel free to attack your suspect with all your’s and your fellow policeman’s might before actually placing your suspect under arrest”?

I accept your apology. And ‘arse puppet’ is the nicest thing you’ve ever said to me. Cheers.

I don’t think you do yourself any favours abusing the people who might not want the dragway. I think if you keep doing that they’ll make sure it’ll never happen.

Push harder for a dragway…. make it legal and you might be surprised who comes for a look…

For a Dragway to happen in the ACT would be the best thing to happen in this city in years. While it would not completly eliminate street racing or burnouts, I dare say it would definatly help, not to mention move summernats from epic (to make you tree hugging sooks happy), and also create jobs.

To also set the record straight with Kowen, naturally if there were cars/bikes/people not associated with us in the car park when we arrived, we would leave.

how many of u have actually heard of kowen forest?… its a place nobody would go at night unless they where going ‘parking’

Unless they knew three Australian 24 hour mountain bike championships were held in Kowen forest, and it’s still a relatively popular spot for a night ride.

Potentially explains why so many of you guys were out there to begin with.

If you dont like undesirables in your group, perhaps you need to get a code of ethics for your online community to agree with and then only people on the forums know where to go to meets.

Furthermore, if you have a code of ethics which participants agree on, it could work in your favor if things end up in court, i.e. you can explain that rush hour members agree to a code of ethics and that the potential offender that is in court can be proven as not a member of rush hour.

If you are going to do things that are illegal, then isn’t it in the collective groups best interest to only allow members who agree to the code of ethics to attend “events”

Cave Clan could teach you guys a thing or 2 about code of ethics and weeding out undesirable group elements.

Try doing the job in a real state before you go on about how tough you are boys.

Things to be grateful for:

1. I don’t live in a ‘real state’ with cops like barry ottor.

Yeah, that’s about all really ….

For those having a go at Ingeegoodbee for his intemperate remarks, you should know that it was someone who normally comes on here decrying the legal system who felt necessary to run for the same cover of our pathetic defamation laws. I for one thought this was pathetic and weak, no matter how deranged Ingeegoodbees comments always are. It would seem like the term ‘plastic police’ really does apply down here. Try doing the job in a real state before you go on about how tough you are boys.

Passed on behalf of Rushhour; The drop kick with the stolen 300zx, bag of weed and scissors which he apparently threatened an officer with.. has been told never to return to the group and can spend another year in jail – Stolen cars are banned from Rushhour, if it was known, that person would have been told to leave earlier.

I can also say for certain that no organised street racing ever occurs at Rushhour. Kowen is a good place where we don’t bother the community and hardly ever attract police attention because nobody puts through complaints!

Dangerous activity is disciplined and a ‘danger zone’ has been designated to avoid damage or injury. we arent perfect but this is part of our culture and impound/forfeiting cars hasnt stopped it either. least it isnt in the suburbs!!

We aren’t challenging the AFP either, we accept their authority and we abide by police direction. The police do their job very well. with a very small number of officers being unfair and threatening (physically) in some instances, which we can’t prove at this stage due to a video camera ban at Rushhour.

We are doing our best to give these young guys and girls somewhere to go instead of the suburbs, there are alot of families in Rushhour with kids, and we to do not wish our kids lives to be in danger because of some dick head p plater drifting up a public street putting our families lives at risk.

Ingeegoodbee is a grub who has previously been made to give a grovelling apology to another person on this site due to similar comments. He is a sloooow learner, but this should be expected from an internet hard man who doesn’t have the balls to confront people anywhere but in cyberspace.

I’m sorry Tooks but I’m going to have to correct you on that count. I’ll type this slowly so it will be easier for you to understand. It is true that I posted a remark that crossed the line. No one ‘made’ me do anything. I apologised, vg accepted that apology. End of story. We’ll almost – there’s still a few arse-puppets like yourself who keep bringing it up.

“Ever heard of an Australian drag race driver named Troy Critchley? He’s a professional race driver and yet he still managed to lose control of his car on a main road and killed 6 bystanders at a charity event in the US in 2007.

If a professional driver is able to get into a situation like this, how can you honestly say that what you are doing isn’t dangerous?”

Brilliant comparison, Mr Evil.

It might have something to do with the fact that we arent driving 2000 horsepower race cars, and there also isnt 1000 odd people lining the streets while a race car drives past 2 meters away at 100+mph. While I will admit there is always a slim chance of an injury, we are all aware of this. There is also a slim chance that I will get hit in the head by a cricket ball, but still go and watch the game. Maybe if that happens, it might bring me down to your level and we could have a more equally intelectual conversation?

Woody – “No, the stance that says it’s ok for the police to beat people for something as trivial as ‘gobbing off’. But you knew that, didn’t you? Back to putting plastic pegs in buckets for you, my special friend.”

Are scissors to the throat trivial? Back to sitting around being an utter tool for you I guess.

Thumper Thumper 4:40 pm 17 May 09

the offender allegedly held some scissors up to a policemans throat.

If, and I stress, if, this is true then it really does shed a whole lot of extremely bright light on the situation.

Yes? Maybe? Just a little?

Tough skin is needed on this site, but that comment is bordering on down right offensive.

So your’re suggesting that there’s an acceptable level of numbers of kiddie porn aficianados in the police force?

No. What you are implying is that Police are all into kiddie porn. I am with Spideydog – that is down right offensive. You haven’t been sticking your head up for a while ingee and probably for good reason.

If these people want to drive out to unpopulated areas and waste rubber who cares? If one of them loses control and kills or injures themselves and/or spectators, too bad, they knew the risks. So long as there’s no cost to the taxpayer ie ambulances, rescue services with jaws of life, etc, let them do whatever they want.

“In our defence, we do it in areas far from the public eye, where no one can get injured. Burnouts are not dangerous.”

Until someone loses control of their car and ploughs into a group of bystanders!

FFS… The bloke who was arrested was running from the police. Why? Because he was caught in the process of doing a burnout in a stolen 300ZX. The police gave chase on foot, and when the caught up with the offender, the offender allegedly held some scissors up to a policemans throat. A breif struggle ensued involving several officers and the suspect. The police may have been a bit heavy handed in dealing with the man (throwing him at a woden fence several times etc) but given the fact that the suspect was still in posession of several impliments that could inflict harm to them, in their eyes it was obviously justified. I am not defending the actions of either party. I am an active participant in Rushhour, and am not the biggest fan of any “authority group” particularly the police. The problem we now face in the eyes of the police and the public is that Rushhour will now be asscoiated with Drugs (the thief was allegedly carrying some marijuana), stolen vehicles and violence. All we are is a group of young people with nowhere to enjoy our passion. Yes we congrigrate in large public areas, yes we have loud, modified cars. We dont drink, dont do drugs, do not steal cars and any other shit you people can dream up. We DO NOT street race! And if you think we do, prove it or shut up. We do however do burnouts. Yes, it is negligent driving. Yes it is illegal. We are aware we are braking the law. In our defence, we do it in areas far from the public eye, where no one can get injured. Burnouts are not dangerous.

Just to make things clear, the guy that was arrested was not a part of our group. We do not condone his actions or even know how he ended up with us. Had we known that the car was stolen, would have told him to leave. As far as I’m concerned, he got what he deserved. Now we just need the legal system to smack him on the wrist, give him a lolly pop and send him on his merry way.

Unfortunately paedeophiles come from all walks of life – but any excuse to have a go at the AFP, eh?

I think you’ll find there’s probably just as many, if not more, plumbers, child care workers, mechanics, airline pilots, lawyers, shop assistants, school teachers, priests, firemen, military personnel, doctors, electricians, etc, who have been caught involved in this grubby crime.

DJ DJ 12:37 pm 17 May 09

Maybe the Police spoke to the bloke, did an investigation and then as result charged him? Just finished work is a lame excuse…
