Australian Police – Wimps or Whiners?

Aside from the usual stupidity of criminals, can anyone tell me what is wrong with this news story?

Warwick Police Station has again been the target of a brazen attack, with tyres on seven cars slashed in the early hours of this morning.

Two marked vehicles, three unmarked cars and two officers’ personal cars had their tyres slashed in the compound of Warwick Police Station some time between midnight and 6.20am this morning.

Note the key word  ‘again’ in this report.  This is the second time somebody has attacked cars at the police station:

The incident comes eight weeks after an attack that saw two privately-owned cars at the station set alight with what police believed was a Molotov cocktail.

Of course, its pretty stupid to come back to the scene of a crime.  Especially to a police station.  That organization created to investigate crimes, with specialized training in investigation and with the full force of the state behind it to find and detain criminals.  Like those who attack cars and destroy them.  Or at least one would think so.  Just about anywhere in the world attacking the police is the stupidest thing a criminal can do.  They are the biggest gang around and they can find you and punish you.

But apparently not in Australia, or at least this part of Western Australia.  Here, they whine on about closed circuit tv and lighting:

WA Police Union president Mike Dean said security at the station had not been prioritised by Premier Colin Barnett.

“There just seems to be absolutely no urgency about upgrading security at this active station,” he said.

“And here we have another incident a mere eight weeks after the Premier pledged to boost security at the facility.”

He said making the station car park compound secure would not be an “expensive fix”.

“All that is needed is the installation of CCTV and an electronic gate at an estimated amount of up to $20,000 to make this area secure,” he said.

Now this is the union spokesman (we can get into the whole idea of unionized police as government idiocy at another level later), but here’s an idea.  You are the fracking POLICE!  How about you go out and crack some skulls and find out who did this and put them in the pokey for a couple of decades?  With some nice broken limbs thrown in as a bonus?  Teaching the criminals that it is not allowed to even think about attacking the police would go a long way toward ensuring that your job is easier all around.

I have absolutely no experience with Australia other than a very pleasant visit there a couple of years ago.  We were treated very politely and had a wonderful time everywhere we went.  However, Australia is overrun with politically correctness.  Especially the enviroKooks and the minions of the Great and Powerful Algore.  They are very, very, very, very, very guilty about the treatment of the Aborigines and never stop bashing themselves and their culture.  They just turfed out their very successful Conservative Prime Minister and replaced him with a socialist who immediately promised to bow down to the UN and Kyoto.

And apparently they have police who are so wimpy they can’t even go out and find people who attack their very own cars.

Australia and China – Internet Firewalls

What will China and Australia share?  An internet firewall that will block things the “government” doesn’t want the citizens to see:

“AUSTRALIA will join China in implementing mandatory censoring of the internet under plans put forward by the Federal Government.”

“The revelations emerge as US tech giants Google, Microsoft and Yahoo, and a coalition of human rights and other groups unveiled a code of conduct aimed at safeguarding online freedom of speech and privacy.”

“The government has declared it will not let internet users opt out of the proposed national internet filter.”

This conforms to the usual way rights are lost in a “slippery slope” effect. (Here is an article on how gun rights were lost in the United Kingdom that outlines the general model for losing rights: (link).) In particular, when technology changes the way a traditional right can be exercised, as with the Internet now or with the introduction of revolvers in the United Kingdom, it’s thrown into doubt as the new possibilities are examined in the light of the worst and most inflammatory possible abuses – mass shootings with deadly multi-shot revolvers, child porn, whatever. Unless you have a zealous and belligerent lobby objecting to even “reasonable” infringements of the right in the light of new technology and making it taboo to support abridgments of the rights, the tendency is for those who enjoy the right to prove they are reasonable people (not “gun nuts”, not addicted to child pornography and so on) by agreeing to reasonable restrictions. These grow and grow and grow, and once you have conceded that there is no fundamental, absolute principle at stake on your side, it is very hard to resist them.

Intermittent Explosive Disorder

Oh yeah, the psyciatric idiots are hard at work in Australia:

The court heard she was allegedly sexually abused as a child, had been assessed as retarded and suffering from intermittent explosive disorder.

This is one stupid little story. This seriously troubled girl has, since age 8, accomplished the following:

She was just eight the first time she threatened her mother with a knife. She had also similarly threatened her foster carer, attacked a teacher and stabbed a fellow student. Since she was sent to Yasmar {Juvenile Detention center} at 16, she has assaulted her solicitor, doctor, psychiatrist and two teachers, one of whom was attacked with a leather working tool in July 1999.

Well the wonderfully politically correct idiots at the JD center then put her into a COOKING class – with knives. And she then ups and stabs her cooking teacher to death. Shocking result, eh?

So now the girl who committed the murder is suing the state for “allowing her access to knives”. We really do seem to need to experience some sort of major catastrophe and restart civilization.

But isn’t the diagnosis of intermittent explosive disorder a great euphemism for “murderous rage”? Sounds like something you will be hearing a lot of in the future.

“Yes, officer I got drunk and sliced my wife up with a knife, but I have intermittent explosive disorder so send me to the funny farm for 2 weeks so I can get better”.

Idiot Former Secretary of State

Madeline Albright gives reason number 2,330,941 why its a good thing that slimly little one-worlders need to be rooted from the State Department and sent to Somalia:

A third reality is that the concept of national sovereignty as an inviolable and overriding principle of global law is once again gaining ground. Many diplomats and foreign policy experts had hoped that the fall of the Berlin Wall would lead to the creation of an integrated world system free from spheres of influence, in which the wounds created by colonial and Cold War empires would heal.

In such a world, the international community would recognise a responsibility to override sovereignty in emergency situations – to prevent ethnic cleansing or genocide, arrest war criminals, restore democracy or provide disaster relief when national governments were either unable or unwilling to do so.

Hardly any translation needed there at all. The ultimate goal is to gather the thugs and idiots in the United Nations together and decide to “override soverignty” whenever they fell like it. I don’t share much with Muslim terrorists, genocidal African dictators, and communisit thugs like Castro. Let alone deciding that a bunch that includes human feces like Hugo Chavez and Ahmadinacrazy can get together and decide to ‘override soverignty’ anywhere. But the one place you know they want to do that is the United States.

The US wants to drive cars? The US wants to execute criminals? The US wants to actually have freedom of choice? – Hold on there bub! The United Nations will intervene to make sure that doesn’t happen.

And the brainless idiots in the US State Department think that this is a good thing! The best thing we could do is abolish the state department and send them all to Iraq and Afghanistan to experience life in their own little imagined paradises.

It is scary that this thought-challenged fart of a woman was in the line of succession for the US Presidency during the Clinton years, eh? And isn’t it interesting that she publishes this in Australia – not in the United States. The libs are gutless too.

Competing With the Welfare Economy

Australia has a long history of appeasing the aboriginal population with money that they have to do nothing to obtain.  And guess what?  Sitting around and getting drunk and watching TV is easier than working for a living:

Artist Bernadette Tjingaling has been on CDEP longer than she can remember.

The 34-year-old was busy cleaning up at the Merrepen Arts Centre at Nauiyu when The Australian visited.

She was helping to prepare for the community’s annual arts festival, which will be held later this month.

Like many others in her community, Ms Tjingaling was forced onto the work-for-the-dole program when the Howard government abolished CDEP last year. She is one of the few in the community who works in exchange for her welfare payments.

Federal Indigenous Affairs Minister Jenny Macklin has reversed the previous government’s decision to abolish CDEP, but Ms Tjingaling said that after months of being paid a little over $200 a week for doing nothing, many people in her community did not want to go back onto CDEP, let alone undertake full-time work in local industries.

“Everybody used to work here,” she says, pointing around the arts centre. “When Centrelink came back on, everybody got lazy staying home.”

Now, would the “shocked” progressives in the audience please raise their hands?  Anybody you know who would be surprised that getting paid to do nothing–even a pittance that just gets you by–is preferred to working?

And its really interesting after being up there in the northern part of Australia with a bigger aboriginal population that you see the results right there every day.   The natives are sitting around the front of the mall or some store with the big bottles of beer.  They obviously have nothing to do, and spend their days getting drunk from about noon till they pass out.  And then start the same thing the next day.

There are Help Wanted signs in just about every store in the mall, but you never see any aboriginal people working in the stores.  Just sitting outside getting drunk.  And that’s how it ends up with a welfare state:

Tiwi Land Council business development manager Brian Clancy said a company set up by traditional owners on the island had trouble finding staff to work in its forestry operations.

“We’re competing with the welfare economy,” Mr Clancy said. “People just say straight out: ‘Why would we come out to work when we can go home and watch a video and still get our 280 bucks at the end of the week?’ It makes it very hard.”

Its just that you eventually hit some point where there are more drunks on the couch than the working people will pay for.  In Australia the aboriginal population is very small compared to the country at large, so its more of a rounding error in the national budget to just give them weekly beer money.  And the aboriginal society continues to disintegrate.  Wife beating (well, live-in woman beating – marriage is almost extinct) is common, just about everybody eventually ends up arrested for drunkness or theft, and the checks still come.

Isn’t this a case of genocide?  Just being done one check and case of beer at a time.

Australian Police – Your iPod Will Kill You

I just wonder how long an iPod lying there would last before somebody picked it up?

In a recently launched print campaign, created for the New South Wales Police by DDB Sydney, the message is clear: your iPod will kill you.
These ads are clearly ridiculous. If anyone offered me an iPod with headphone cords long enough to wrap a chalk line around someone, I’d save them the trauma of the accident and just murder them for it.
What I find most interesting about these ads are that they have an obvious iPod lying next to the corpse. I’m don’t know what Apple’s official feelings might be, but the online fan-geeks are already up in arms over the slandering of the beloved music player. Let’s face it: an iPod is now as necessary as a mobile phone.
