Train Deaths

Posted in teenager, trains at 1628 by contentious

The state government wants to initiate an educational course to teach kids that not crossing train tracks at designated crossings can be dangerous.

Why do you have to teach them that? If they cannot work out that jumping down from a 5 foot platform, crossing the lines, and trying to get up onto the other 5 foot high platform (when you are probably just over 5 foot yourself) is dangerous then they deserve all they get.

Put the money into providing pre-emptive counselling for the train drivers.  Advise them they are going to run over kids, but it is best for the world that these idiots are killed now rather than spreading their stupid genes out into the world.

What is it with governments that want to molly coddle the population?  You don’t need to educate the population about crossing train tracks.

Heroin Deaths

Posted in drugs, heroin at 1219 by contentious

Each day a local paper publishes the tally of road deaths and heroin deaths to date.

With regards to the heroin deaths – who cares?

They are using an illegal drug, more than likely bought with stolen goods or money from pawned/sold stolen goods. If they want to use an illegal drug, they have to take full responsibility for the results.

The people I feel sorry for is the paramedics. They have to race to try and get to the person in time to save them, more often than not being harrased and abused when they do get there. If they are too late (from not being called in time) then they have to clean up the mess.

Why don’t they just say “Stuff it. We’ll get there when we’re good and ready.” For if they get there in time and save the person, as soon as the user is out of hospital or care, they are back using again. How many repeat offenders have the ambo’s had to save?

I personally don’t care if a junkie dies. In fact I give a little smile each time the death toll goes up. It means one less moron in the world.

Bali 9

Posted in bali, death row, drugs at 1926 by contentious

So the verdicts are in. 2 to face the firing squad and 7 to have life imprisonment.

While there is no disputing the 9 are guilty, what a lot of people seem to be upset over is that the 9 were sold out by the Australian Federal Police (AFP). The AFP are alleged to have tipped of the Indonesian authorities about the activities of the drug smugglers.

So? What is the problem with that?

Better to have the Indonesians deal with the court costs and sentences than have the 9 come back into Australia and then put them through our legal system.

For if they were to be tried in Australia, you can be guaranteed some bleeding heart liberals would say they were all “poor misunderstood kids who never got hugged by their parents and it is society who is responsible for them being the way they are”. The cases would drag on forever and at most they may get 10 years.

This way they are dealt with by Indonesia, and we save a lot of tax payers money in court and prison costs.
