Another car chase is happening around here, for the fourth night in a row.

There has been a car chase nearly every weekend since before xmas.

The driving habits of Perths young drivers is scaring the bejeesus outta me. I can't remember the last time I saw a cop car cruising around, lurking about in the shadows. The crap that people get away with now, every day, every week.....if the cops were around, on the streets, in their cars, half of perth would be without a license and the streets would be a bit safer.

Hell, this is only little old Perth, how are you guys in Sydney going??????

You know the funny thing, they never get away. Even if they do get away from the Cop’s chasing them, they seem to forget that the cop’s already have their Number plate and will simply show up later that night or the next morning with the cuffs.

Idiots, me thinks they have been watching to many Hollywood moves.

Offcourse then if the car is stolen, well I don’t give a rats about these low life’s I hope they get run off the road and caught by the police trying to get away and if they loose control and kill themselves when they take out a lamp post who cares I sure the hell don’t, they got what was coming to them, better they take out a lamp post than a pedestrian or another car IMO. At least then the wankers will be off the streets permanently.

Muzzgit,

It is 11:58 PM Saturday night in the outer suburbs of Sydney and all is quiet. We are all at home watching the Games or like me on the computer.

When I say the outer suburbs of Sydney, Penrith is about 50km west of Sydney. This is at the base of the Blue Mountains and there are suburbs for another 50km heading west.

So there are no sirens going off, so it must be all quite in old Sydney Town tonight.

All P platers should be made to drive naturally aspirated diesels therefore there would be no speeding.

Don't seem to have many out our way (north west of Sydney). Either, there are too few cops or they've hoisted the white flag and given up. Still a lot of "not long to be on this Earth" hoons though.

Dood.....u got it easy.
I live in a place called Bankstown in Sydney, safe to say its the "safest" suburn in Australia as far as terrorists activities go..reason is....they wouldnt dare blow their own kind up here...so for that im happy. BUT...my son has his scanner on 24/7 and there isnt a moment in this suburb that things go quiet. Just today, father shot his son at home, house was burnt down up the road, so far....5 police chases, cocktails thrown into a house just yesterday. The list goes on.

Ive bene here 20 years now, my only blessing is, my neighbours kids r involved with the main lebanses gang here, ive helped grow these kids up after their father passed away many years ago. So for that assistance we gave the mother all that time back is paying off, u see, the gang leaves us alone and even watches our house when we r out. I even get to say hello to them without any fear now. But god help anyone who even looks these guys in the eyes...i dont think they would live for long. These guys mean business, and cops being there does not worry them at all. They know the laws well and they use them to their advantage when needed. No wonder the cops have had enough. They lock them up knowing full well they will be set free within hours. As frustrating as it gets for the police, its how things are.

So thats life as we made it today. It wont change...ever, it will just get worse as time progresses.
Pssst....anyone want to buy a glock..cheap.....just kidding guys. Sorry its all so sad.

MMM, what we need is a New York police station in Bankstown, after a few shootings and beatings from the cops any body will be able look at these punks.
After all that's what these little bleep s wanna be, gangsters like the hardcore street rappers in America, well lets treat them like that a few Rodney King beatings wont go astray.
The big problem is that our coppers are pussy's, youth with no confidence, no muscle or streetwise and not a good justice system to back them up.

Its all this easy, all politicians LISTEN here is how it works .....
O (ZERO) TOLLERANCE.

One more time for the DUMMIES its ZERO FRICKEN TOLLERANCE.

Babs for police minister lol lol lol

It aint the cops that are weak. They no longer have the powers they used to. A certain high profile Brit made sure of that.

I work in Bankstown and know exactly what cokeaddict is talking about.

Most of us know what the problem is and know that there is a solution (and one that is fair and within the realms of human rights), but whilst politicians are happy to listen to a loud minority of do gooders, and dont want to rock the boat, things are just going to get worse.

All this could have been nipped in the bud well over 10 years ago, but as per usual, it was all swept under the rug by the bureaucrats.

But Zero tollerance would certainly be a good starting point.

Unfortunately the disorganized majority don't make anywhere near as much noise as the organized minority. That's what political lobbying can do.

Bring back the Summuary Offences Act. I know it was abused , but it was a beauty to sort out the louts.

A drunken lout - Public Intoxication - Get in the back of the truck.

Turn Your pockets out - No Money - Vagrancy - Get in the back of the truck

Spitting in a Public Place - Get in the back of the truck.

Your mates have been convicted of a felony - Consorting - Get in the back of the truck.

Urinating in a Public Place - Get in the back of the truck.

Foul speech & swearing in a Public Place - Get in the back of the truck.

Train them when their young.

Ah to have the serenity of the bush... Oh that's right I am almost there...

Out here in Dubbo, Central west NSW, Car chases, house burnings, youth violence are a weekly (sometimes nightly) event. Just last night a group of youths were "cautioned" for throwing rocks at a medical centre then at passing cars.

Vehicles are stolen on a regular basis, driven around town at high speeds then either taken to local reserves and torched, or used as transport to a certain region of town then dumped with extreme damage.

The local constabulary are trying. They are frustrated though because their hands are bound when it comes to dealing with these people. The young people know that unless it is a very serious crime, and they are caught red handed, they are reasonbly safe. When the adults are caught, the legal system is (or appears to be) very lenient and they get a warning, a small fine and they are back out on the streets again to do the same again. Sure they might lose a license, but just because you don't have that bit of plastic, doesn't mean you can't steal and drive a car....

The police and the local government are searching for answers to try and find a way to curb the antisocial behaviour which plagues our community, but it would seem they are fighting a losing battle, especially as though we are not alone in our plight.

The occasional drug bust here in Peterborough SA. Apart from that the regular monthly stuff of drunk and disorderly, DUI or drivng an unregistered trailer...lol

Wheelies and burnouts are becoming a thing of the past since the new HOON laws came into effect. Get caught for doing a burn out and you lose your car for 48 hours. Next offence you lose it for 3 months, third offence ta ta car!!! But the tyre marks are still fresh about 5 to 10 km out of town.

Dead quiet in my street tonite. Even the dogs are keeping mum.

Might get 10 cars a day going past my house.

Ahh......... the quiet country life

Major accident - car loses control, crashes and driver is killed - AAaaaww.
crap - one less idiot to maim and kill innocent victims.
If passengers are killed, they knew the risks before they got in the car, it is advertised on TV night after night.
If they kill innocent people in other cars - capital punishment. Won't do it again in a hurry - and others will sit up and take notice.
Their friend gets capital punishment - think they will do the same? - i think not!
It amazes me the parents who, even after their kids have killed other people, say "They are really nice people inside". Nice people don't act recklessly endangering lives.

A license is a privelege, not a right!

My personal beef, glad it's out of my system!

It really scared me Gramps - in fact I'm still shaking now. It was after sunset and we were just sitting there when we heard this faint sound which just got louder and louder and louder . . . . then we saw the lights. Everyone suddenly became quite panicked and the thought of alien abductors entered at least one mind. When we realised it was indeed, a horseless carriage our fears were allayed to a certain extent, but the question remains - What was it doing there 'after dark'? I think it may have been those terrorists that we keep hearing about, although there aren't any terrace houses in our area so they were a long way from home.

Just be careful if the light beams are red and pencil thin. You'll know them by the BANG sound that usually follows when they stop searching :)))))
