It’s a dangerous job as you are usually dealing with desperate people who are down and out or insane and willing to do anything to escape ar do what they intended to do.
A police officer was killed chasing some suspected motorbike thieves in Bangkok area on Saturday and sadly his wife gave birth to their first baby 3 days after his death. This is a risk that goes with this kind of job everyday.
Anyway a man who shot a policeman three times during a routine traffic stop has been sentenced to 15 years in prison with a non parole period of 10 years.
This fool’s lethal intent was demonstrated by the fact he got out of his car after shooting Sgt Cooper in the face and shot him a second and third time in the back. How lucky is the policeman lucky to be alive?
But get this he had pleaded not guilty and showed no emotion when the sentence was handed down to him. Good to see he was remorseful.
The court was told he had a long criminal history, suffered from psychiatric disorders and was a regular abuser of drugs and alcohol. Isn’t this everyone’s pathetic attempt of not being liable for their actions? I was on drugs, drunk blah, blah. So bloody what you did it to yourself you cretin have some guts in your life to take the blame for once for your actions. http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,21985,22015890-662,00.html
I just wish I could be a judge and I would have said “The term of your natural life and 50 cats and nine tails a day for the rest of that time” which hopefully wouldn’t be long. What a waste of our precious resources these people are like food, water, money and most of all oxygen. I am pretty sure that there wouldn’t be a criminal in the world who would want to step a foot inside my courtroom, even the youth of today wouldn’t be safe I actually would be harder on them. For shoplifting first offence 30 days hard backbreaking labour at a filthy degrading job.
Yeah I would like my courtroom it would be nice. So why are we sending a message to people that it’s alright to try and kill people who are employed to protect us by only giving a 15 year sentence with parole in 10 its just not right. No wonder they are having so much trouble finding recruits in Australia and they have even dropped certain criteria for entrance into the police forces. Also a report was tabled saying the low quality of recruits as they are being rushed through training to get them out on the streets and seen by the public.
I am sure this is probably happening in many places throughout the world. I actually watched a good show on TV the other night and it showed and African/American man who had been pulled over for a traffic stop and the lady police officer was on her own with this guy. All went normal until she asked to search the car and found a bag of Marijuana. The mans 9 year old daughter was there with him and when she told him to get against the car he started to bash her. He was a big guy and knocked out and then hopped on top of her and kept hitting her while his daughter told him to stop. He left her lying on the road and drove away and a good Samaritan stopped and radioed for assistance. She spent 7 days in a coma and was very lucky to survive and recover completely.
The good thing out of this is after they caught the man he was sentenced to 125 years in prison, now that’s what I call a good sentence and I wish we could export that guy to Australia to hand out some real sentences not like the crap being handed out now.
Lock these people away for good they can never be rehabilitated that’s just a dream of some educated fool who dreams way too much.
Well that’s my rant and view anyway.
