Woman held for over 4 days in Bushland.

By Deadmandrinking - 19 July 2008 49

ABC news has a rather scary story about a 26 year old man nicked in Giralang for holding an 18 year old for over 4 days.

Usually, I’m not a fan of tough sentencing, but in this case, I hope this guy gets a long, long stay in the Molonglo hotel.

What’s Your opinion?

“Of course capital punishment works. In China recently they had a drug problem. One day, they took out 6,000 drug dealers and shot them in the back of the head. The result: they don’t now have a drug problem.”

They still have a drug problem. What they have less of is a dealer problem. The drug users problem would be finding a dealer.

Sleaz, my god temper temper.
I love it how people jump to conclusions over what the media writes.
I personally know the cops have no evidence and tried to drop the charges on this case but couldnt as the DPP and the press had made such a big deal out of it.
Dont feel sorry for this girl as she has ruined someone life by telling lies that are going to stick with the accussed for life.

Why don’t you move there? I’ve heard it’s a wonderful, free society where people can speak their minds and be exposed to information from all around the world without fear of censorship or prosecution.

El, cops are accountable and I said they should be. The public should be allowed to call for them to be held accountable and they are. Some on the Riot-Act seem to think this is wrong. I was stating my disagreement. This is way off-topic anyways.

Sleaz, after reading your comment I got a mental image of the creator of Dexter seeing your comment, then bashing his head into the keyboard screaming, ‘Why?! Why?! Why?!’. Hopefully he/she never does. I think you should probably stop watching it, for your own mental health.

Capital punishment never works. The reasons why have been said too many times. Even if it was re-instated, it still wouldn’t be applicable to this particular case by most democratic nations’ standards.

And finally, Mael, JB seems to swing more to the left and so far seems to not be a moron. I predict a possible debate over the finer points of something, maybe heated depending on the topic, but I highly doubt I’m going to end up getting into a full-on shite-slinging match with him. Sorry to disappoint.

Capital punishment is excellent for low recidivism and the day we have a 100% flawless method to get convictions the debate might be worth re-visiting.

Until then Sleaz I hope for your sake you’re never at the wrong end of a misunderstanding that looks bad, or a case of mistaken identity.
