JJJ of all things is reporting that a taser was used on blueing drunks in West Belconnen (where else?) over the weekend.
Anyone know anything more?
I too thought the Taser was for people with weapons. I know of one time it was used(twice)because they had trouble getting someone into the back of the paddywagon.
thankfully for me I wasnt born there!.. LOL
aren’t all queanbeyan chicks born with excessive hair on the backs.. and donkey teeth?
“Booner heartland in West Belco or Tuggers? F$cking amateurs – come and visit Queanbeyan.”
Just in response to VYBerlinaV8’s comment… how god damn true! Though Queanbeyan does of course sport some intellectual, well dressed and normal people if you look hard enough…
Every time I go to the Belconnen mall I wish I had a taser.
Don;t polic still carry clubs/nightsticks? Surely a swift whack to the back of the legs with that would stop the brawling…?
I though the idea of tasers was not to use them on brawling drunken bogan idiots, but on machete/knife/katan-wielding nut-jubs who they’d otherwise have to shoot – the taser offer an option to immobilise someone who they can’t actually wlak up to and tackle but, because it’s not a firearm, to get away with not killing them. If the cops can’t break up a bar fight without a projectile weapon they shouldn’t be on the beat. (If there were 10 odd brawlers to the 2 cops it’d be different, I guess.)
Nothing like a good ol’ stroll through qbn on pension day to see a broad represenation of the members of the human sub-species homo-boganus.
high five evee, The DaVinci Code is bringing down the understanding of fiction and non-fiction alike, across the globe.
I remember once doing a self defence course in Brisbane and the instructor trying to seel us some kind of taser ‘under the table’ so to speak. Imagine if you used one illegaly against an attacker and then had to face court because of it?
I think bogans ARE australia, and you have got dodgy areas everywhere. But the aspirational ones…the ‘Cubs’…(Cashed up Bogans) are the worst. I tolerate them due to circumstance, but I vow never to own a four wheel drive, a big screen tv, or read the da vinci code for as long as I live.
Lets just rename Australia as ‘Struggle Street’.
FC – I still stand by my comments – if they weren’t fighting the cops wouldn’t have felt the need to use the taser.
I thought they were only supposed to use tasers in situations where they would otherwise use a firearm, eg against an armed assailant. Guess we’ll find out all the circumstances later; then again, if this is the 9th time somebody’s been zapped, maybe not.
Queanbo definetly beats any place in canberra for booners.

“Troyanne, get ‘ere ya little bastard!”…
As for Booner heartland, that is easy Tuggeranong.
I know its become really bad in this area. But where to move, chances are they are everywhere!! My daughter has a friend at school and her name is Shaniece…its like a combination of Shane and Denise, now thats bogan. Next someone will call their kid Troyanne
Yet how many people die because they have fallen over outside a pub in a harmless brawl. I am betting its more than people who have died from being tasered.
I hope not. They are putting an aldi at my local.
There is enough booners already!!
I think you’ll find that Aldi put their store for that reason
after all, West Belco remains the Booner heartland
you could be onto something there andy… aldi attracts mega bogans.
Do you support or oppose the construction of stage 2 of light rail from Civic to Woden?
