When is a Good Time for a Lynching?

The CT has this story on the alleged fun loving activities of the Civic muggers.

What excuses do we think they’ll put up in defence of their anti-social behaviour?

Steve Pratt could patrol the streets late at night with capsicum spray, black gloves, 9mm hand guns (just like police do) on hand and a posse of vigilantes ready to gaol groups of suspect types.
If you look the wrong way, or make a joke towards the vigilante posse, be ware !!! You may be lucky enough to spend a week in prison without charge.

These guys are weak as piss, notice they can’t pick anyone alone? They are probably the type that go home and smack their wives and beat their kids…….Whats more they are the spineless $$#@ that go and whinge when they have something happen to them – maybe we need to organise a hit on a Magistrate or a politician before something decent happens to these bastards!!

I like the idea of stocks. I also like the idea of changing the law so that they can only be defenced by an appointed representative of the victim. User pays in action…

Their association with the Rebels is that ‘Tim’ as named in the paper has a rather well known father who is a member.

You’re probably right there Johnboy. Maybe we won’t have to wait for the Police to sort them out after all as it may be done “in house”, so to speak?

If I was those little turds, I’d rather hand myself into the Police rather than wait to be bundled into the boot of a car a 3am one morning!

I thought the Rebels connection was interesting.

They’re not a group that usually takes kindly to outsiders trying to trade off their name.

Even if it is a kid of a member, isn’t the minimum punishment a gutshot and leaving town forever?

Yeah that site is a corker

Speaking of Chavs, I find this site pretty amusing.

Absent Diane2:31 pm 31 Aug 05

HAHA @ Chavs – good call!!!

Sending our crims to bali with drugs could be called “outsourcing”…and we would only have to pay for the airfare…let Indonesia pay for the justice…sounds good to me.

Filthy chavs.

Where are the cops when this sort of thing is going on? I know they can’t be everywhere at once, but it would seem that these piss-weak tossers aren’t afraid of accosting people in open places. It’s not like Akuna St and City walk is a dark back alley, so it would seem that these punks are attacking without fear of retribution. Experience is the only thing that would lead them to this behaviour.

I have previously floated the idea of installing miscreants of this ilk in Garema place as phlegm recepticles, although I like the added challenge of finding the most painful spot to ditch my smokes out on. Nice one ssanta.

There’s no cure for people willing to hunt in packs; they are animals and not fit to live amongst human beings. Far North Queensland I tells ya.

Either that or a roving vigilante lynch mob who protects the good folks of the ACT from antisocial behaviour. If the cops can’t do it we should take the law into our own hands.

These oxygen thieves really push my buttons.

I was thinking “bring back stocks” as I read that story. Great suggestion! Plus apples are 89c a kilo at the moment, should we wait for them to soften before we start throwing them?

Stocks in Civic. That way people have a place to put their chewing gum and ciggerette butts rather than flicking them everwhere, you could stick your chewie or stub your ciggie out on some miscreant. Pure gold, and very visible punishment that would stop others.

MR Evil that is positively evil…. I like it!!!

Problem easily solved: put each of these lowlife rejects on a plane to Bali with a suitcase full of drugs and a tattoo saying “drug dealer” on their forehead.

Samuel Gordon-Stewart12:53 pm 31 Aug 05

Ralph I agree, we need our courts to be filled with Steve Pratt and his many identical siblings.

their ways haven’t changed

Absent Diane12:29 pm 31 Aug 05

When they first start showing sociopathic signs they should be put on a monitoring program, perhaps have them taken away from there parents and re-educated and if their ways have changed by the age of 18 wham frontal lobotomy… this way instead of wasting money on longterm jail stayers you spend the money on prevention. If prevention doesn’t work you turn them into vegetables which the original creators should be made to look after. That or create a very violent sport in which they can kill themselves in.

mmm adult…. I don’t think anyone has ever called me adult!!

Do they even need to put up a defence. All it takes is for them to say that they weren’t loved as a child or something and they will get a slap on the wrist and a 6 month good behaviour bond.


We need people like Steve Pratt on the bench. That would put the fear of god into some of these low lifes.

Or maybe we could get Judge Judy as part of the skilled migration program.

f***ing wankers. Flogging a bloke for 20 bucks. grrrrr

They’ll will treat these thugs the same way they will treat the boy involved it the recent hit-and-run. The bleeding hearts in our society will say they are from a disadvantaged background and will be sent home and told not to be naughty boys again.

I recently spoke to a teacher who ‘taught’ the hit-and-run boy who said he has been in and out of trouble for years – stealing cars, bullying other students and thieving. But the system just kept on turning a blind-eye. Bleeding hearts like Stanhope and others, especially our liberal thinking judges and social workers, have slowing dismembered all the checks and controls in society in respect to these thugs.

AD didn’t add the “appropriate smiley” because he is a grownup.

Add the appropriate smiley then 🙂 😉 😛 etc

my comment may have been tongue in cheek….

Growling Ferret10:17 am 31 Aug 05

Handguns are the last thing you want every strapon wannabe hip hop star wanke 18 year old to be carrying thru Civic…

I’d prefer to have the sh*t kicked out of me than take my chances with a pissed or stoned teenager with a weapon…

Absent Diane10:10 am 31 Aug 05

if we could all just carry guns for personal defence – then im sure these things wouldn’t happen

Pond slime.

so do you think Cleatus is his real name or thats just what everyone calls him because of the six fingers and missing teeth?
