Punching on with the cops.

By johnboy - 19 July 2011 22

A 27-year-old Chifley man has been arrested after violently assaulting police in Fyshwick overnight.

Around 2am this morning (Tuesday, 19 July), police were conducting a patrol of Fyshwick then they saw a damaged white Mazda 626, stopped, in the middle of Gladstone Street. A man has then attended the vehicle and was spoken to by officers.

Information obtained from the owner of the vehicle indicated that the vehicle was possibly stolen, and the man was taken into custody for questioning.

While officers were conducting a search of the man, he violently grabbed one officer in a headlock and punched him numerous times in the face.

Police were forced to deploy oleoresin capsicum (OC) spray in accordance with AFP guidelines, and the man was arrested for assaulting police.

The officer was conveyed to The Canberra Hospital by ACT Ambulance Service after sustaining a number of facial injuries and a suspected broken hand.

The man was lodged at the ACT Watch House, where police located a quantity of substances, suspected to be methylamphetamine.

He will face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning.

IMO Stick him on the ground, two in the head. I think this is where I fail as a human being.

I can’t believe they didn’t Rodney King the Mully. I don’t think I would have the self control to be a police officer. While the media go nuts whenever a cop is caught beating/spraying/tazing a “suspect” I am amazed it doesn’t happen more (not saying they should beat people, they really shouldn’t, but it is something I respect about most cops).

Druggy low-breeds – they are genital warts on society.

Obviously just another moron taking up space in the human race.

Well done again AFP – hope the officer concerned is okay.

Broke his hand how?

One would suspect from punching the guy in the face. I once broke my hand the same way in a footy match. Easy enough to do.

I’d hazard a guess because it found itself between his face and the clenched fist of the drug-f*kt cretin that had him in a headlock trying to thump seven different shades of sh*t out of him.

Seriously . . . the boys and girls of the plod don’t get paid enough for that crap. Hope the officer concerned mends (on any level you can think of) quickly.

And even if was actually on him and not at the watch house, why wasn’t he searched before he ended up there?

Why wasn’t he just blown away the moment he started punching on with the coppers?

I wonder how many punches he got in while the cops partner whipped out the spray and tried to get a clean shot at his face and not blow his load all over his partner at the same time whereas a 9mm high velocity pill, delivered by a competant operator, can stop punches in less than a second……

You watch too many movies RAAFy…

Too much info on how cops spend their time in Fyshwick.

Jesus, seriously? The guy had already assaulted one of the officers. Maybe the other officer didn’t want to try searching an already violent meth-head who had just received a face full of OC spray until arriving back at the watch-house?

Just a hunch…

anyone want to start a book on the passage from monitored cell to the monitored interview room goes via an unmonitored stairwell? (As it should… a little rough play deserves a little rough justice)

“The man was lodged at the ACT Watch House, where police located a quantity of substances, suspected to be methylamphetamine.”

Who’s keeping a stash of meth located in the ACT Watch House? Methinks the media release could do with some proofreading..
