Tased in Palmerston

By johnboy - 2 June 2013 29

A 21-year-old NSW man was arrested yesterday evening (June 1) after he assaulted an ambulance officer and police officer in Palmerston.

About 11.20pm police responded to a request for urgent assistance from an ACT Ambulance Service officer in Tinderry Street, Palmerston. ACT Ambulance Service officers were at the location medically assisting the 21-year-old man.

While ACT Ambulance Service officers were treating the man, he became aggressive and made a number of threats towards the ACT Ambulance Service officers. Due to the safety concerns and aggressiveness of the man, the ambulance officers requested urgent assistance from police.

Prior to the arrival of police, the man left the area but returned when police arrived.

The man aggressively confronted a police officer before an attempt was made to arrest him. During the arrest, the man violently resisted and assaulted the police officer.

Due to the seriousness of the assault upon the police officer, a sergeant subsequently drew and discharged his Taser at the man. As a result, the man was subdued and taken into custody and conveyed to the ACT Watch House.

The 21-year-old man has been charged with two counts of common assault. He was granted watch house bail and will face the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date.

Easy. Pronounced dead. Bag him and tag him. Never have to worry about that certain ice addict attacking you again!

What about if there is life after death?

It would be good if you monotheists or nihilists would think about your actions a bit more.

This applies to the writer of the above quote as will as the hero of fun.

And here I was thinking a kinder gentler RiotAct was emerging.

It’s comforting to know you are all still as brainless as the “scum” you rail against

Stevian and sciencerules, can you both tell me the merits of someone who decides to attack a ambo trying to do their job?

Anyone with half a brain can tell you why state-sanctioned murder is a bad thing, no-one’s saying this guy is any kind of victim,

What he said.

Also, I can’t imagine why you would think that there are merits to attacking ambos on the job that anyone could list for you. It’s not about the offence, but rather how it’s dealt with.

Ambos accept and manage a level of risk when attending some patients. These people could be affected by drugs or alcohol, have a mental health problem or just be general dickbags. It’s pretty rare having to call for urgent assistance from the police but the system works pretty well, and all without someone getting shot. Even bad people.

And that’s how it should be. The emergency services are there to serve the whole community, not just the grateful, happy bits of it.

Yes, unfortunately, you are dead right.

In the age of DNA and video evidence, there should be cases that skip the need for trial and go straight to sentencing. Of course it should only be done when there is no question that they’ve got the right person from DNA and Video evidence along with witnesses.

Its a waste of time for everyone involved with a perp saying “wasn’t me, I didn’t do it” despite there being DNA evidence at the scene, video evidence of them doing the alleged act and witnesses describing the perp along with the action they took. Straight to sentencing for them with additional time added on top for not coming clean.

That and double jeopardy where there is clear new evidence that will secure a conviction are two areas that should be modernised.

You miss the point, you’re just as bad as the “scum” you rail against. They have no merits and neither do you.

Yes of course, this is brilliant thinking. Regular non-judicial executions by police are just what we need. That’ll sort things out, fix all our crime problems and make the community much safer. Your clarity of thought and well-constructed social policies are a tonic in this chaotic, anarchic society in which we live.

Either that or you’re talking bollocks. One of those.

Brilliant,remove the judiciary out of the equation so they’re not burdened for years procrastinating over what to do with the agro scum. It’s a win-win for all concerned 🙂

How is shooting someone going to make the ambo’s life easier? Blood and guts everywhere not to mention the extra paperwork. You blokes are geese…

Seconded.

There is not much more scummy than filth that attack ambulance officers.

It really is too sad it was a taser instead of a firearm that was used on him.
