Recognise the Holt rapist? [Facefit]

By johnboy 25 September 2012 28

facefit

ACT Policing has released a facefit of a man alleged to have sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl on Saturday September 15 in Holt.

About 5.30pm, a 16-year-old girl was running along Spofforth Street in Holt, listening to music via her earphones, when she was grabbed from behind and dragged into a Ford Falcon sedan, possibly metallic blue in colour, by two men.

After the girl was sexually assaulted by one of the men, she was driven to a car park near the Kippax Playing Fields and released.

The three men involved were described as Caucasian in appearance, 18-25 years old with Australian accents.

One of the men (pictured in the facefit) is described as having a large build, short blond hair, blue/green eyes, with stubble facial hair. He was wearing light blue denim jeans, a blue/green jumper with white cuffs on the sleeves and white writing on the front.

The driver is described as having a husky voice, dark coloured hair with shaved side and mohawk, clean shaven and wearing a dark top.

The front passenger is described as having a light brown short hair with freckles on the back of his neck. He was wearing a black long sleeve Adidas jumper with white stripes down the arms.

ACT Policing is urging anyone who may know the people described, or recognise the man in the facefit to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

the bumps make it more likely someone will spot him.

The resemblance between pimplehead and poocockhead is uncanny.

Only on Riot Act would you see a local rape report become a platform for IT dorks to try and out do each other.

The IQ on these guys must be bloody low. I mean regardless of the crime the fact they do it with 3 people means they are guaranteed to be caught as some one will talk at some stage.

I wonder if there are links to the recent possible abduction of Ms Meagher in Melbourne that now a Ms Deveny in Sydney says is the same guy (from the CCTV) who grabbed off her bicycle trying abduct her, too?

each of those 22 million files is going to have roughly 128 bits (1s and 0s) of data to store a single x/y gps location.
And lets, for arguments sake, take a location every 5 seconds (thought your car GPS probably refreshes it position at least once a second), that’s only 17,280 times each day.

With these in mind, you’re generating about 44,236,800,000,000 1’s and 0’s a day.

That’s about 40 TERABYTES of data. .

No it isn’t.

See if you can spot your mistake.

44,236,800,000,000 / 8 (bits to bytes) = 5529600000000
5529600000000 / 1024 (..to KB) = 5400000000
5400000000 / 1024 (…to MB) = 5273437.5
5273437.5 / 1024 (…to GB) = 5149.84
5149.84 / 1024 (…to TB) = 5.02

5.02TB per day?

I’m rusty…

40 terra bytes a day wouldn’t phase most data centers, you can buy SANs with petabytes each. Facebook has how many hundreds of millions of users? If there is a technical issue keeping us from being monitored, it is not a lack of hardware or software.

Look, I don’t know how closely we are monitored, none of us do, and that’s the point. As long as it is all done in secret, we can’t know what they know and we can’t use what they know.

I sincerely hope I haven’t veered this conversation too far off course, I hope the perpetrator is found and the victim recovers. It’d be nice if our watchers (if they’re out there) helped too, but that shouldn’t distract from the issue at hand.

what happenned to you to make you the way you are?

TV crime shows?

jokes aside i hope the little prick gets caught

I am not so self-centered as to assume my every action is under active scrutiny, but the passive surveillance of all members of our society is surely beyond debate at this point. Would you really claim we are unsurveiled?

Off the shelf hard drives are now measured in the trillions of bits, transistor counts are in the billions, and you think some twenty million files would pose a problem?

Discounting logical arguments as paranoia is the first resort of those in denial.

20 million files wouldn’t be a big issue, but these aren’t going to be 20 million SMALL files.
bute each of those 22 million files is going to have roughly 128 bits (1s and 0s) of data to store a single x/y gps location.

That’s about 40 TERABYTES of data. Each DAY.

Keep in mind that this is the bare minimum, and not even a feasible minimum, as there will be overhead everywhere, new line characters, metadata, headers etc all will add to these files sizes.

Now, if these consumer hard drives have sized of “trillions of bits” these days, let me just point out that 1 trillion bits, is 0.1 of a terabyte. Fortunately, off-the-shelf hard drives are hitting roughly the 3 Terabyte range nowadays.

But thats still filling up over 10 ‘consumer’ hard drives worth of data a single day.

Or 3650 a year.

How long should this data be kept? Hell, who knows, someone could come forward in 10 years time with a claim that she was too frightened to in the past.

That’s a LOT of data.

And someone’s going to cross-match all that data to find if someone (who may or may not have even had a phone on them at the time) was possibly at one precise location at one precise time?

Sometimes paranoia is just paranoia.

I’m surprised they don’t just check that face against the files they keep on us all, hell, can’t they just check whose phones were in the area at the time? or does the AFP not talk to ASIO and the yanks about actual crimes? What is the point of living in a surveillance state if the gestapo can’t even use the info they’re gathering?

Anyone tried popping this into Facebook’s face matching algorithm?

You know, it’s quite possible they would’ve already thought of that…

Nice photos. I wonder if the AFP would do an ‘after’ photo showing what he’d look like if the victim’s family and friends got hold of him. Ears torn off, eyes burned out and nose spread all over his face.

You seem to be thinking along the same lines as my family on this matter.

Sometimes, a bit of medieval action simply seems like The Right Thing To Do.

This dude is hardly a threat to national security and very unlikely to have been worth any effort on ASIO’s behalf prior to (or even after) getting violently touchy with a poor young woman.

As far as I can tell, through the mists of secrecy, there is not much which is actually an immediate threat to our security. That has never stopped our fine protectors from monitoring us all.

The old echelon program comes to mind, and the recent American surveillance whistleblowers. Moreover, given how simple it is to triangulate the position of a phone, even without gps, and how trivial it would be to log those positions, I’d be shocked if they weren’t doing it. Given the back doors built into consumer hardware, they likely have far greater capabilities than just logging positions.

As for this not being worth their time, if they have time to investigate each refugee and millions of visa applications, then they have time to catch a rapist.

Personally I don’t think this level of security is worth the price we have paid in liberty and privacy. If they want to watch like voyeurs, they could at least have the decency of a lending a helping hand once in a while.

I like your flavour of crazy

I don’t think it fair to group government departments, who are notoriously inefficient and bad at keeping secrets, in with intelligence agencies who are notoriously capable and good at keeping secrets.

I don’t think our domestic politicians really have much say in the goings on at ASIO, apart from periodically approving and expanding their budget and capabilities. So giving credit to the spooks doesn’t really say anything about our government. I could be wrong, maybe gillard keeps her black pant suit ready in case a spy mission comes up, but I tend to think of them as separate entities.

I think you are giving the government way too much credit with this one.

They’re watching me!

Do you actually think ASIO (or any domestic security organisation) has the time or resources to actually monitor the whereabouts and activities of 100% of the (mobile using) population?

If that was the case and triangulation of the precise locations of people’s phones was as accurate as you seem to think, wouldn’t it follow that nearly all crimes could (and would) be solved – or at least have discounted a suspects alibi – within hours of being reported?

Here you go

Bastard…. rape is scum – o the earth enough. But a 16yo….. hope they find that c***t and charge him with rape, sex with a minor, assault, kidnapping, and just being a common Lowlife ( damn I wish that were a crime) throw the book at him so he can go to jail and find out what it feels like for himself
