UPDATE 10am: PREMIER Ted Baillieu has indicated a possible revamp of hoon laws after a learner driver was caught with nine teens crammed into his car.
"It’s unbelievable that this day and age that someone could behave like that," -why is it unbelievable? he told ABC radio this morning.
"This is the equivalent of what we know as hooning, why is it the equivalent of hooning? what is the lawful definition of the word 'hooning'? where someone has been grossly irresponsible, putting at risk a large number of people in a vehicle. what is defined as a large number of people? Was anybody under more risk than anybody else usually is inside, or outside, a vehicle, a private automobile, or any other mechanised travelling device? That in my view is hooning."
"I’m interested in the commentary about the hoon legislation.
"The bottom line is regardless of the specifics of the legislation, if there’s a gap which prevents this from being a case where it’s dealt with in the same way as other hoon offences are dealt with we will look at that and we’ll look at it very carefully..
Police stopped the car for a routine vehicle check which law deals with a routine invasion of your privacy to chack whether you are complying with a law? at Bungower Road about 12.30am.
The officers were stunned to find 10 teenagers in the car, all of whom had been to a party.
The Ford sedan was also unregistered -There is no law that obligates you to 'register' your private property with any type of government, much less a for-profit corporation, and, the process of registration is a taxation on PRIVATE ownership!! and displaying false number plates, police said./claimed. Whenever the HS deals with an opinion from someone they agree with, they use the word 'said', and, whenever the opinion is from someone they disagree with, they use the word 'claim'. What do the police mean when they say 'false number plates'?
The nine passengers had been at an unsupervised house party -how is this relavent to anything besides attempting to sway reader opinion in a particular direction? in Mornington which police had shut down.
Mr Baillieu said the most recent case was a "disaster waiting to happen". Or an opportunity for him to press through further legislation that discriminates, diminishes your freedoms and potentially further taxes you for your natural need to move about your environment.
"We’ve sought to make it tougher, but if there’s a gap in that in terms of somebody stacking a car with nine passengers, 10 people in the one car unregistered… only on L-plates, 16-years-old, one skid away from catastrophe, The Premier is trying to create drama where it doesn't exist. And, why is the Premier so interested in such a minor incident? just a disaster waiting to happen," he said.
"If there’s a need to toughen hoon legislation we’ll look at that because this shouldn’t be happening.
"We have to get it into kids heads that this sort of dabbling, whether its dabbling with dangerous driving, dabbling with drugs, This has nothing to do with this incident, yet it has not stopped, either, the Premier from mentioning it, nor, the American-owned corporation entitled the Herald Sun from printing it. More attempts to tar by association. Of course, while on the topic of drugs, it is worthwhile mentioning that Baillieu probably doesn't mean actual dangerous drugs like the pharmaceutical ones that are described by leading American Psychiatrist, Dr. Peter Breggin as only dangerous if you start taking them, stop taking them, or, if you alter the amount of them that you are presently consuming, either up, or down. Is it because they are taxed drugs, that, like ciggaretes generate huge amounts of government revenue? dabbling with alcohol, why separate alcohol from other drugs? is dangerous and it’s dangerous to communities all over the place, not just to kids."
Acting Sgt ALL of the police are acting a role when they wear their costume- Patrick Hayes, from Mornington police, said the officers intercepted the car because it was travelling quickly note that he said "quickly" as oppossed to 'speeding', or even 'erratically'. This is revenue raising. and discovered 10 teenagers on board.
"I believe most of them were in the vehicle itself -otherwise they would be OUTSIDE, on the roof perhaps? maybe on hover boards trailing from the back of the sedan like in Back To The Future II? Maybe, and I might be clutching at straws here, but, stay with me, MAYBE, the intercepting officers might have noticed people travelling on the roof of a car that is travelling quickly, and, MAYBE, in that case, it might have been mentioned in this story and/or by the Premier who has already mentioned a pile of trivial irrelavencies in an attempt to make political mileage out of this incident??, just basically squeezed in and a couple were on the floor," Acting Sgt Hayes said.
"It’s just really a combination you don’t really expect - it’s surprise and utter disbelief, especially with all the media coverage in the last few weeks. Media coverage about what?
"We had a double fatality down here at Cerberus and a couple of members from this police station attended that and that was a horrific accident." Now the police officer is guilty of using irrelavencies in a brazen attempt to tar by association, yet, the HS chooses not to notice, or comment. Did they not see what I recognised in seconds? Perhaps they need new journalists? Or, perhaps they are expressing the opinions of their American boss, Rupert Murdoch?? After all, the Herald Sun does accept a lot of advertising money from fellow corporations such as the T.A.C.
Acting Sgt Hayes branded the teenager "totally irresponsible". Oh gosh, a toatally irresponsible teenager, what a preposterous, completely unlikely idea.
"Obviously the message just isn’t getting through. It’s just totally irresponsible to have 10 people in a four door car," he said.
"(The teen) was upfront. There was really nothing he could say. The observation of the members was nine other people in the car. What can you say? What can anyone say to that?"
The driver was collected by a relative while taxis were arranged to take the other teens home.
The Balnarring teen could face charges of driving without a licence. Yet no charge for the registration, number plates, the number of people in the car, driving quickly, attending an unsupervised house party, or any of the other irrelavencies introduced by third parties attempting to capitalise on the situation. It is surprising that he wasn't accused of being a terrorist, or, hiding Bin Laden or whomever is being blamed for the 9/11 false flag op this week.
