In Fremantle an off-duty police inspector tries to stop a teenager from vandalising a building with graffiti and is bashed in the face with a beer bottle. No doubt society is to blame and the poor youth is not really at fault etc. While he is still on remand awaiting another hearing, he gets three square meals a day, a roof over his head and more training in being an anti-social yob. Of course letting him roam the streets again would just have someone else ending up bashed and scarred.
In the UK a Manchester man brutally assaulted a police officer who had the temerity to pull him over and question him about his sobriety. The officer was punched and badly hurt before bystanders intervened. the offender received 3 years in prison and was disqualified from driving for 5 years. Three of which he can’t get behind the wheel of a car anyway. I think disqualified for life and if caught driving after doing his time, he goes back in for the same stretch. It would punish him but he would likely still stay a bitter, twisted and angry person thinking he is above the laws the rest of us must abide.
These individuals truly think they are above the law and that society does indeed, owe them. You can’t educate them otherwise, at least if the authorities can’t do this with all their resources, your chances of achieving a turn around are pretty slim. Best advice is to stay alert, be aware, avoid them when you can and if you can’t. don’t waste time trying to reason with the unreasonable. If you can’t just walk away, nail them before they nail you and get the hell out of there.
Meanwhile, people you would think would know better are also getting their just desserts. A Doctor has been found guilty of raping and strangling a stripper he became obsessed with. He got nine years with a 5 year non-parole period. The Vietnamese-Australian 33 year old demonstrated no remorse and was described as ‘cold and calculating’. In Tasmania, an 81 year old man is to be extradited to Western Australia in relation to the 1992 murder of a woman there. Although 63 when he allegedly murdered the woman, ‘Life Imprisonment’ now surely means less time behind bars than the poor woman has already spent in a shallow grave.
Bu of all the crimes and criminals out there, the ones with their snouts in the trough and feeding off our money after giving us a load of flannel about having to tax ‘carbon’ to save the world. I’d rather deal with the bashers and the murderers, at least they know they are scum of the earth types, even if it is someone else’s fault… apparently.
In the UK a 17 year old ‘ladette’ on a binge drinking session pushed a 34 year old woman to the floor and stamped on her face twice with her stiletto heel. She caused the woman’s optic nerve to snap, leaving her blinded for life in one eye and suffering anxiety and panic attacks. The attacker, jailed for 33 months, will have her baby behind bars in a month or so’s time.
This is yet another example of how vicious and dangerous the female of the species, particularly the 15 to 25 group, can be. Do not underestimate the danger of these vicious sluts. The large amounts of alcohol consumed by young people in the UK and elsewhere is a serious social problem, but not a new one. In the mid 18th century the alcoholism among the poor in London was a major factor in shaping the policy of transportation which led to the founding of the colony at Port Jackson (Sydney).
Here in Sydney we have a similar problem but not to the extent it is in England. The message is clear: Stay away from the places that serve alcohol until dawn unless you wish to risk becoming involved in violence and potentially lethal arguments over nothing. It reminds me of the ephibephobia (fear of youth) that was engendered by Anthony Burgess’s novel, ‘A Clockwork Orange’. (1963) While Kubrick’s movie a decade or so later missed out on the final chapter where the protagonist realised the error of his ways and renounced violence, it was nonetheless a damning indictment of how young adults and teens can become lethal savages.
William Golding’s ‘Lord of the Flies’ was another literary example of how we humans can resort to very primal beasts if the circumstances allow the breakdown of the thin facade of civilized behaviour we normally present. Why we think girls are any less savage than boys I don’t know. It is wishful thinking that may have held some veracity at one time, but women have always been the crueller of the species.
While a man will often feel some compassion for his opponent once he has neutralized the risk he presents, not so the woman. The native North Americans would hand the prisoners over to the women for torture as they were far better at keeping them in agony for as long as possible. No pity and a quick death from them, they wrought their revenge and I can understand this. After all, the women were the ones that suffered the most when the men fought, especially if their men lost. Payback is a very base human instinct.
But they had a reason behind their cruelty. Not so these vicious, spiteful spoilt bitches or their equally waste of space boyfriends. Is it a generational thing? Do we blame the parents? Is it the fault of society and consumerism and instant gratification at light speed thanks to technology outpacing cultural change? What do you think?
A Sicilian couple attempted to commit the perfect murder and use butter to suffocate the woman’s ex-husband. The theory being they would choke him with the butter, which would then dissolve and leave no trace. Unfortunately for them, the traces of butter remaining in the aesophagus gave the game away. While somewhat in the realm of the infamous knife made of ice that kills then melts, this is a very real and tragic story. A man has been brutally murdered, his terror during his struggle for life would churn the stomach of the most hardened Vegan. His story needs to be spread so that others can avoid such a fate. Personally, I’m switching to low fat, no salt. That full cream dairy spread stuff will kill you one way or another!
