Smells like Oregano, Tastes like Rum

By RandomGit 12 April 2005 26

I’m willing to bet a lot of money that Schapelle Corby is innocent.

Celebrity wannabe inmates notwithstanding, the possibility of someone choosing her as their unwitting mule is high. For example, Sydney airport has a fraud and conspiracies enforcement section. Officially, they are auditors for local security. Unofficially, they consume their time watching the baggage handlers, trying to catch the thieving criminal assholes red handed. Not that a camels head showed up on the radar. I especially love the Union reps comment to install more cameras. I suggest you install a V-chip to prevent your members blanking the lens with permanent markers as they have done in the past, ye goof.

Ever locked up your luggage and sighed contentment at avoiding the possibility of getting a strychnine drip in a Bangkok toilet with officials looking on? Did that bag have a zip? Oh dear, one well placed strike with a innocuous disposable ball point pen and your bag just made you a bitch. Ever traveled with a laptop in baggage? Did it make it to it’s destination? I guess you got lucky, handlers have a radar for gadgets in luggage, the weight tips them off you see.

What has this got to do with Canberra? The AFP of course. Everyone says they need to get off their asses and provide more actual policing work that doesn’t involve hearsay. Just fingerprint the bag and the suspect shall be revealed. Dude, baggage handlers wear gloves. For all that handling, don’t you know?

Schapelle, can I call you Schappas? Schappas, I feel for you girl. But you’re f*cked. They’ve had it in for happy goofs like you since Roman times.

The only thing that will save you now Schappas is a full scale invasion, but it’s sooooo 2002.

Maybe we should send in the Davey Navy.

@Evil, I know. What else would you expect media to do other than sell papers and advertising? 😉

Ralph 12:10 pm 22 Apr 05

I’ll certainly be avoiding any of these backward countries as holiday destinations. At the very least you need solid, lockable, luggage.

Mr Evil 12:08 pm 22 Apr 05

I definitely think she will be found guilty; I don’t think the Indonesians have had any other outcome in mind. I think it’s interesting how lightly the mastermind of a terrorist attack gets treated, compared to someone who’s accused of smuggling dope into Bali.

I wasn’t having a go at you RandomGit (about the Victorian prisoner), but rather just how much the media grabbed his story and ran with it.

RandomGit 11:56 am 22 Apr 05

You seen the security in that courtroom?

I’d make a break for it.

LurkerGal 11:46 am 22 Apr 05

I’m really hoping that she won’t be found guilty. Obviously not as much as she and her family though.

I admit, I would prefer the firing squad to life in an indonesian prison.

RandomGit 11:41 am 22 Apr 05

I think he means, she going to be found guilty regardless, ergo, fucked.

LurkerGal 11:26 am 22 Apr 05

Mr Evil: I think you mean “If she’s found GUILTY, she’s fucked”.

RandomGit 11:24 am 22 Apr 05

My opinion is based on personal experience. I think I was clear, that Victorian prisoner and his testiomony is irrelavent.

Mr Evil 10:06 am 22 Apr 05

I must admit that I have found it a little hard to believe that the testimony of that Victorian prisoner has been taken so seriously by so many people.
It doesn’t really matter now anyway, as no matter what happens now, Ms Corby’s fucked. If I was in her shoes, I’d be hoping I got the death sentence, rather than rot in a Third World hell hole for the rest of my life.

I’m telling you that a Baggage Handle put it in. It’s what a lot of them do.

Ralph 9:32 am 22 Apr 05

I reckon most of it would be home grown, if not coming from Thailand or somewhere.

Its just not economic to import dope from Australia (high cost market) into Indonesia (low cost market).

Also, the 4 kgs was just sitting in her boogie board bag. There was no attempt to conceal it. I find that to be odd.

vg 9:28 am 22 Apr 05

I find it a little offensive that people are drawing certain conclusions about another country’s judicial system, when ours isn’t example a bastion of justice. People (not necessarily here) have made a few comments that I found puzzling.

Why would she import it into Bali when its so freely available there? Well how do people think it gets there? Its not all home grown.

She has travelled there many times so she would know the ‘ropes’ of their customs system, unfortunately getting pinged this time.

I don’t doubt that the potential punishment meted out is way too excessive, put none of the evidence put forward in her defence would be admissible here, so why do so many cry foul when it isnt admitted there. Hearsay, theories and assumptions, thats all she had. What they had was the stuff in her bag.

As for the 9, well I don’t know how many times people have to be told about it before they listen. Take drugs intio that country and you can be executed. Dirty big signs in Denpasar, as well as pre-travel literature tell you that. No sympathy for them

LurkerGal 8:57 am 22 Apr 05

Boycotting indonesia will hurt the little people, and it is not their fault that their government have inhumane laws! It would be like everyone who works in tourism in Australia losing their jobs because everyone boycotts visiting here because John Howard is a terrorist!

And i think she’s innocent. And I think the other 9 are guilty, but I still don’t think they deserve to die for it.

johnboy 11:55 pm 21 Apr 05

I don’t honestly know VG.

But I do know the indos don’t try to reasonable doubt.

and that isn’t what we call justice.

vg 10:58 pm 21 Apr 05

Has anyone broached the possibility that she may actually be guilty?

macca 9:44 pm 21 Apr 05

Corby is in deep sh|t because the useless, gutless pollies like Downer et al, grovel to these feral d’heads with thier tribal excuse for a legal system. I have cancelled an upcaoming trip to Asia, and recommend all non-essential travel to ‘Indo’ be actively and vocally cashed in !! Let the bastards know how their economy will suffer if no one wants to go to their shitty legal backwater – and let them finance their own clean up operations for tsunamis etc. I aint donating a cent to the pricks !! FREE CORBY NOW !!!!

Shaun 6:52 am 13 Apr 05

As a side benefit to the snatch and grab we could also grab the dope on the way out and party on big time when we got back

johnboy 8:48 pm 12 Apr 05

Talking of sending in the Navy how about a simple snatch and grab over night raid by the SAS.

Only if you want to start a war.

Do we want Kopassus doing snatch and grabs to rescue indo fisherfolk as they ply their trade in our waters?

RandomGit 3:33 pm 12 Apr 05

It’s actually Dutch-Roman based law and legal system left by the colonial Dutch. Not much to do with Shariah law or anything else of a religious bent. Draw whatever parrallels you wish, but it ain’t the same thing.
