Punching police to save your New Year’s rum nets good behaviour order

By johnboy - 14 May 2009 37

The ABC brings the interesting news of Mosiah Luteru, 18, from Florey, who hospitalised a police officer on New Year’s Eve after they caught him with rum in the dry zone.

Today he’s been sentenced to an 18 month good behaviour order by Magistrate Karen Fryar.

What’s Your opinion?

That’ll teach the damn cop for trying to take the bloke’s rum.

Here’s a hint Karen, he’s a f*ckwit

Great to see the courts standing up for the people that bring people before them. I’d love to see her reaction of it was a member of the judiciary getting belted

There is some great irony here, given a recent post from you regarding the appropriateness of an officer’s response from a member of the public’s plea to them for help. One could almost have responded to that comment of yours with something like:

“Great to see the police standing up for the people that they are supposed to protect. I’d love to see your reaction if it was a member of the police getting belted”.

Well, I’m not sure. If someone was after my Rum, I might become rumbunctious too. They can get their own damn rum.

I thought he did it to hang onto his rum!

More seriously though. Gareth Higgins taught us that belting the Chief Justice was A-OK.

I’m sorry, but i do take issue with the fact that people are so willing to damn Justice Higgins over domestic issues within his home. I remember talking to some cops in a pub (off-duty) and they were going on about the domestic issues in the Higgins home – whilst they were otherwise nice people, I wasn’t impressed by what the cops had said regarding Higgins and his son.

It’s plain and simple: domestic issues happen in many homes, belonging to people from all walks of life. Confrontations between fathers and sons are common ones (I certainly had some bad confrontations with my step-dad and real father, although not in the same caliber as rumor put it in the Higgins home). These things are none of the public’s business, really.

Oh I thought of another one… whatever was wrong with a bit of “contact counselling”?

Maybe this is what dear Miss Karen meant has anyone checked with her?

If who belted who? Which ‘he’ are you talking about?

Add it to the pile and some we will have a mountain of bad decisions from the judiciary in this town and it can be a tourist attraction like olympic park in Munich.

Don’t they have counsellors in the new prison?

Skid can you dig up similar decisions from interstate were prison time was handed down? I know there was a four corners or whatever show on a family who gave a cop major life long injuries and were let off by a jury.

Boys in blue….bring back the beastings….feel free to protect your colleagues by shooting offenders square in the chest…let the state then decide on the appropriate level of compensation the victim’s family should receive…I’d suggest about 1% of what army war widows receive will do

I think judges are under the impression that crims think in the same reasoned manor that they do. What’s to understand, he saw an obstacle to his activity and reacted in the traditional way of the ghetto, with a punch.
I dare suggest that the law needs to be changed to place some burden on the parents who raise a violent rat bag like this. I doubt he was a straight A student with good parents who decided to drink and beat up cops one night. This sort of behaviour starts at home.

Watch this space. I have a feeling we’ll see his name again within 18 months.

‘Today Magistrate Karen Fryar said it was important for Luteru to undergo counselling, to understand why he behaved in the way he did.’

Any suggestions? Hmmm, maybe he’s just a fool. Can’t see him learning anything positive from this.
