Should have put that one on the shelf

By johnboy - 22 June 2011 35

A 21-year-old Banks man will face the ACT Magistrates Court today after police apprehended him having sex with a 14-year-old girl early this morning (Wednesday, June 22).

About 3.10am members from Tuggeranong Police Station were conducting a routine patrol of Hume when they came across a car with heavily fogged windows.

The members approached the car and found a 21-year-old man having sexual intercourse with a teenage girl in the back seat.

The man was arrested by police and taken to the ACT Regional Watch House where he was charged with Sexual Intercourse with a young person under the age of 16.

Police will be opposing bail.

I can’t see anything wrong with their behaviour.

fgzk will be along shortly to inform you that you are a paedophile. Sorry, but it’s just the way he rolls.

He probably picked her up from some licenced establishment and figured if shes old enough to be there, shes gotta at least be legal.. then again, in the ACT he should have known better

#5 has got a good point too, are the police going around carparks at 3am knocking on the window of every car with a fogged up window?

#10 R. Slicker – I hope I don’t spoil your “fond” memories but the only reason a 16 plus year old male would have sex with a 13 year old girl is because they either didn’t realise their actual age or they couldn’t find a 16 plus year old female who would agree to do the job. I’m glad you’re not scarred but I think you would be the exception not the rule and personally I think it’s revolting.

At 3.00am in the morning in June – you’d want to be shagging, just to keep warm!

Seriously though, this blokes a sick little monkey. Wasn’t Ricky Nixon’s son was it?

R.Slicker, it is child exploitation no matter how anyone chooses to justify or distort it. Whilst it would appear the young person agreed to participate, in many cases the damage is not fully understood for years to come. It is with good reason that children are not legally able consent to a range of things, including sexual intercourse, until they are much older than this kid.

I can’t see anything wrong with their behaviour. As long as there was consent and the girl (or man) wasn’t coerced by the other party.

During the early to mid 1970s starting when I was 13 I had sex numerous times in the back of panel vans with people in their late teens and twenties. Never once did I think I was doing anything wrong and it didn’t harm me at all, in fact I loved every minute of it. I look back fondly on those golden years.

I suppose we live in different times nowadays with different attitudes but I can’t help thinking of the harm the actions of the police are doing to this unfortunate young couple. I’m glad I came of age in more enlightened times.

I’d have thought that most cars exposed to the elements at 3:10am in a Canberra winter would have heavily fogged windows.

There seems to be no issue of consent, but surely a 21yo would think about the fact that she’s 14 and that would set off a few alarm bells.

After a guy asks how much and pays his money, he gets what he paid for. It’s just bad luck the cops showed up

So a 14 year old girl is out and about with 21 year old boyfriend at 3am on a school night? Sounds like some quality parenting.

I managed to get out of the house many times at younger ages than that. It is no reflection on parenting.

She was staying up rather late on a schoolnight…

I know I shouldn’t, but I had a chuckle at that.

Hope the AFP members involved are getting some trauma counselling after seeing that!!
