Robert Jones – Menace to society?

By johnboy 13 January 2009 39

The ABC has an amazing testament to the stainless steel mercy of the judiciary.

Robert Jones was pulled over on Saturday night and blew over the limit a day after his release from prison for an earlier drink driving offence.

This is the 62 year old’s unlucky number 13 for drink driving offences.

Thankfully Magistrate Grand Grant Lalor has refused bail due to the depressing likelihood of re-offence.

While he has spent nearly four years behind bars for driving offences in both NSW and the ACT you’d think somewhere between the 5th and 15th charge for driving while disqualified someone might have got the message before now?

What’s Your opinion?

some of us moved there to get away from the belco sub-culture.

What “Belco sub-culture”? I have no idea what you are going on about?

How’s it feel to be unmoderated again?
Don’t know. I’ll let you know when I’m off the naughty chair.

[ED – moderation doesn’t mean silenced, it means screened.]

Throw him in jail to dry out for 5 years

That didn’t work last time.
He’s already spent 4 years in jail for driving offences.
He’s since given his car away. Probably hopes the court will show leniency by doing so…and they probably will.

Cut his right foot off. That’ll make it trickier for him.

Nah, he’ll still be able to stump the accelerator!

Bob,

Average life expectancy in Australia for men is currently 79.

18-19 years is a long time for the rest of the community to wait if Mr Jones is going to maintain his current life choices. I suspect removing his licence won’t stop him either – he seems to believe he has a right to drive regardless of anything.

Yeah.
However he may gracefuly retire from this word before he hits 79…..by either

(1) alcohol poisoning
or
(2) massive renal failure

Either way,….the chances are pretty good.

Or by killing himself and someone else because he’s a selfish c*nt who habitually drinks and drives.

Throw him in jail to dry out for 5 years.

Robert Jones – Menace to society?
This is a 62 year old.

Luckyly he will be with us on this earth, only for a few more years.
Which still leaves us in a deeper doodoo with all the up and coming
( its all about you )–> generation.
Similar younger offenders like Robert Jones will be worse and probly
argue the fact that it is their right to be like that ….yes..( its all about you )

I want to be put into moderation for being a smartarse! Unfortunately I’m nowhere near smart enough to pull it off.

But I know that I’m at least one rung above this nasty old fart Robert Jones.

if you live in Kambah, its a bit much to complain about somebody hooning around and doing burnouts… Those guys probably moved to kambah for that reason, and your trying to ruin it??

some of us moved there to get away from the belco sub-culture. funny thing is that many of the burnout idiots don’t live around here. they usually come from elsewhere, then bugger off back there.

maybe they should go down kambah pool road, or already do.

It’s so un-australian to be a smartarse.

JB never jokes.

I didn’t know he was German!

I think it’s a bit harsh being moderated for being a smartarse.

Actually, we all are. Moderate us all. You know you want to.

The Brad is now in moderation for being a smart-arse.

LOL.

Clint’s doing a car racing game? Or did you mean “Gran Torino”?

Gran Torino is correct.

Or film them yourself, and put it on YouTube, claiming to be them.
You’d have to break into their house and plant the video camera with unedited footage for the cops to find.
