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?

The kicker is that the police said that while they charged the guy with driving DUI and driving while disqualified, they can’t press charges for the damage to the garden or letterbox that the destroyed. Apparently, they didn’t have enough evidence. We can’t work this out as one neighbour witnessed the entire incident and various car-parts were left at the scene (in the garden). We look forward to seeing his idiot again soon.

Ah, good old “circumstantial evidence” again. which enables criminals to get away with just about anything, because you need 10 witnesses, all with video phones, AND the police to be watching. what an utter joke.

I think the best answer is to get Clint Eastwood to move to move into this Kambah street. After seeing the trailers to the upcoming movie “Gran Turismo”, he’d be perfect!

LOL. Things are under control at the moment. These guys are being very, very quite.

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??

Give him another chance: he might get lucky this time and write himself off without harming anyone else.

No. He’ll take somebody else out in a massive crash and walk (stagger) away himself without a scratch.

Ho so true VY. We’re going to come down on these guys like a ton of bricks in future. Not much they can do when the whole street is against them. For info: we’re pretty much across the road from the BMX track.

Apart from the clowns in our street the only police action we get is when kids ride their motorbikes on the reserve behind Fisher and then try to avoid/evade the police by taking the various interconnecting pathways around Kambah.

My wifes family lives near there, but don’t see much of that stuff.

Where I grew up in Queanbo we were on a very quiet street, and you might see the police drive past once every couple of years. About a dozen houses down the road they put in an Aboriginal specific half way house, and the cops started turning up every couple of days. The lady over the road asked a couple of the guys if they could drink on their own lawn rather than hers, and a woman came across the road and broke her nose for her.

Kambah, but I hasten to say generally the good side! One of the smaller side streets of Bacchus St (which is kind of ironic).

VYBerlinaV8_the_one_ 11:43 am 13 Jan 09

Wow – what suburb is this?

BerraBoy68 11:31 am 13 Jan 09

What a dickhead.

What is it with these idiots?! Here’s an experience I’ve had with a similar repeat offender. It’s lengthy but OT…

All houselholders in our street (bar one) got together at about 930pm on Friday night to speak to the resident of the only group house in the street. While we’ve been putting up with a lot of crap from the residents of this house for almost a year, we’ve recently started to ark-up about idiots doing burnouts in the street, honking their horns and revving their engines in the early hours waking up the neighbors and annoying dogs etc.. We’ve even had fireworks fired at our homes buy tghese idiots until a couple of us threatned them with violence just before Xmas. One of my neighbours (a very big guy) also approached one of them recently after watching him do seveal burnouts in the street one afternoon. The response my neighbour received from this moron was “F**K Off, I’ve had a bad day”. But I digress, back to Friday night…

One of the idiots in this house decided to go for a drive at about 9pm on Friday after ‘a skinful’. What he did, however, was drive up his next-door neighbours driveway, turn into their garden and drive over all of their plants while also taking out the letterbox. He missed the house by about 2 foot. At one stage he reversed and drove over the garden again before taking off into the night. The guy that answered the door to us was very apologetic but then again he had to be, we were prealy pised off. His apologies weren’t enough however. The Police were called. After photographing the scene and taking statements they had to leave urgently as another major disturbance as taking place nearby. They rang later to say it was the sme guy. He was in the cells and had been driving drunk on a suspended licence.

The kicker is that the police said that while they charged the guy with driving DUI and driving while disqualified, they can’t press charges for the damage to the garden or letterbox that the destroyed. Apparently, they didn’t have enough evidence. We can’t work this out as one neighbour witnessed the entire incident and various car-parts were left at the scene (in the garden). We look forward to seeing his idiot again soon.

“His lawyer told the court her client … had been [drink] drinking because he had a terrible week” – I’ll say; he spent the previous night in jail (presumably because of drink-driving). Enough reason to send anyone to drink, right?

This is where Sharia law would be handy. If we cut his hands off he couldn’t grip the steering wheel. Though a moron like this would try to use his feet, so off with them as well I guess.

Do you really need to further inflate an ACT Magistrate’s opinion of themself? Grand Lalor.

The ‘t’ is close to the ‘d’, but not a good enough excuse.

Has the real identity of JB been exposed……..

Thumper 10:14 am 13 Jan 09

One would have to say that Robert Jones is a tool of the first order….
