Teen car thieves collared

By johnboy - 10 August 2011 39

ACT Policing has apprehended three 15-year-old youths after two vehicles were stolen from two southside suburbs early this morning (Wednesday, August 10).

About 1.30am police received information from a member of the public that two vehicles were seen driving erratically in Isabella Plains and that the vehicles had recently been dumped in Babinda Place. A description was given of three males seen leaving the area where the vehicles had been dumped.

When police attended the area, the three youths ran towards Mollee Crescent. After a short foot pursuit all three youths were apprehended.

Officer in Charge of the Tuggeranong Police Station, Sergeant Rod Anderson said this latest incident highlights the great work by a member of the public in alerting police so promptly.

“Because a member of the public contacted police shortly after witnessing some suspicious behaviour, police were able to quickly apprehend the youths,” he said.

All three youths were taken to the Tuggeranong Police Station. They were later released and are expected to face the Childrens Court at a later date.

Do you actually have kids?

So you think that the parents dont know what their kids are doing? I’m sure repeated visits to the police station would be a fair indicator.

Having said that, my parent knew exactly what i was up to, whether or not i told them. Its not rocket science to work out if your kid is a trouble maker.

Just wondering if creative_canberran actually is a parent….of teenagers, implying the parents of these kids are deadbeats…he/she has either not had kids or has raised perfect children.

lol, permit me to translate Timberwolf’s comments thus far:

“Yo, yous mofos dun tell me wadda do wit ma young’ns if you dun have youse own. Ma young’ns do wat dey wanna, ain’t no homies gonna tell me dey can’t bag a car”.

Very creative, Cross between Deliverance and Get rich or die trying:) I am guessing you don’t have kids.

That’s just a terrible impersonation, it’s like a mix between ghetto-street from Law & Order and the head-maid from Gone With the Wind. I used to live southside (2905 represent) and I don’t recall running into anyone that spoke like that!

Really though, It is possible for people to be good parents who happen to end up with shitty kids or kids who make bad decisions. It doesn’t mean they’re all bad parents. Some of them are, but some of them aren’t.

Angelina, good comment, some parents try so hard to raise their kids with good morals, to be respectful, polite and sometimes these kids just take a different path, it has nothing to do with the parents. Most of these kids still have good hearts too they get involved in a certain lifestyle and don’t know how to fix it and they get away with too much these days with no consequences.

Maybe Creative can write a book on how to be a perfect parent and raise the perfect teenager, when he/she has had kids that is:)

I’d say there are plenty of nice people who have bad kids, because despite being nice people they can still be bad parents. Good parents might have the odd issue to deal with, but rarely do they have genuinely bad kids.

Having all those phrases and syntax abnormalities in a single sentence is indeed a characterture however they are all real and you do hear them used regularly. Even the phonetically incorrect “young’ns”, “youse” and “wadda”. The irony is the characture actually downplays the typical language.

A more practical example I’ve seen on Facebook and heard around the shops is the following exchange:
1: Hey c… what’s up, what the f… you been up to
2: Not much, where u f….rs get to the other night
1: Was the f….g s…. mate, felt so f….g sick.

and so on… and it’s very very common to the point of whole Facebook walls consisting of these exchanges. Seriously, when did c… become a greeting?

I note that the above exchange was from a Facebook user whose mother and girlfriend’s mother are both “Friends” and see these exchanges, along with the pics of him cavorting around at 3 am drinking on the street. They don’t have a problem with it.

It’s obvious that the government hasn’t provided enough leisure facilities at Isabella Plains for youths. Their punishment will probably be to get a few laps of Winton in a V8 Supercar.

Take their dead beat parents and handcuff them to these scumbags.

Seriously, I bet a lot of people jump to the conclusion that the kids sneak out. I think it’s more likely the parents either know (“Hey ma, gonna boost sum wheels”) or choose complicit ignorance.

Convict reference, not a boat people reference.

Sounds good… But could we just sink the ship?
