Similar thing up here. Lucky the victim didn't ride Harleys or work as a tattooist, or he'd have been charged.

Yep, this is why the Qld Gov is trying to do something and the Judges and Magistrates (and lawyers) do not like it. Fancy challenging their authority, the cheek.  By the way, do you really think that grub being a son of a Police Officer was the reason he got off.  (Different to where a Police Officer does not take action because of who they are.)  What if he was a son of a painter, doctor etc.  Don’t blame his father; it could happen to any father.  Let’s hope our sons and daughters get through life without being a victim or making a very big mistake.  But if they do make a mistake, then they need to be accountable.   Kevin

agree 1000%
Sad thing is you'd get more time for ripping your boss off (god help you if you rip off the Gov) of money compared to killing/maming someone.

Australia's recreational speed boaters, campers and fishermen appear to have closed their Velcro wallets in the past six months and thus played havoc with the sales of this group's biggest supplier - Super Retail Group.

Sleazy act by fatty Obarrel to appease his mates in the hotel and liquor industry.

Top Stories: Email reveals Cabinet approved alcohol crackdown

NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell has spent the past 16 months sitting on a Cabinet-approved plan to curb alcohol-fuelled violence, despite swelling public pressure for a crackdown. An email obtained by the ABC shows Cabinet gave its in-principle approval in 2012 to new liquor licensing laws that would have encouraged venues to address violence and forced them to foot the bill for regulations. The revelations have emerged after the father of Sydney assault victim Daniel Christie delivered an emotional plea for action from the NSW Government at the 18-year-old's funeral. Michael Christie told mourners yesterday: "It's up to our elected members to set guidelines and a framework to stop this insanity, in the name of all those who have died a violent death or been injured by these acts."

In response, Mr Giles labelled Mr Scruby a "moron" who should focus on advocating for pedestrians.

"Harold Scruby is a waste of space. More pedestrians die each year than drivers at speed," Mr Giles said.

"Harold needs to start advocating for pedestrians and not talk about speed.

"He can do a petition but I'll say put the petition up your backside. He needs to look after pedestrians or get a life.

"The biggest killer on our roads is alcohol and (not wearing) seat belts. More pedestrians are drunk when they're killed. What is he doing?"

Personally would like to see the lock outs earlier, do they work? Also 8 years for killing someone, suppose its mandatory so can be more?

Top Stories: O'Farrell announces 'one-punch laws' to tackle alcohol-fuelled violence

New South Wales Premier Barry O'Farrell has announced a raft of measures to curb alcohol-fuelled violence, including mandatory eight-year sentences for fatal one-punch assaults fuelled by drugs or alcohol. The so-called "one-punch laws" also include Sydney CBD lockouts, a freeze on new licences and the statewide closure of bottle shops at 10:00pm. The Premier also announced that sentences for serious assaults involving alcohol will be increased by two years. Under the laws, there will be a mandatory 1:30am lockout for licensed premises across an expanded Sydney CBD entertainment precinct, spanning from Kings Cross to Darling Harbour. Key measures: Eight-year minimum sentencing for alcohol or drug-fuelled assaults ending in death. Serious assault maximum penalty increased by two yea...

Good to see thatFatty O'Barrell has been shamed by the public statements of the father of a victim and his own back bench into acting on the recommendations of the report he has been sitting on for months.

For those that take automotive awards seriously...

Quote
German car lovers have voiced fury at the country’s powerful automotive association after it admitted to having faked a survey for the nation’s favourite car.
‘‘It’s a write-off,’’ judged top-selling newspaper Bild after the 111-year-old association admitted to having inflated 10-fold the number of survey participants for ‘‘Germany’s Favourite Car’’.

Call it karma, fate, just desserts  or whatever you want, it was bound to happen eventually.
With over 100 cars stolen a month in Townsville at the moment (police stats show 443 stolen for Oct-Dec!!) mostly by juveniles, it is suprising this hasn't happened sooner.

http://www.townsvillebulletin.com.au/news/bystander-rushed-to-save-injured-doused-burning-car/story-fnjfzs4b-1226807341473

Very sad for the young lady who died, but it is about time these little thieves realised that it is not a game. Lucky they didn't kill anyone else.
 Certainly shows the quality of one's friends when they leave their injured mates to die so they can bugger off scot free.

Sorry but I have no sympathy for those kids.. None. They will probably end up as scrotes for life on welfare. The driver wasn't a kid - driver was 18yrs old. Shouldn't this be where you make decisions that will direct your future and go with you for the rest of your life? **** em.

What about the poor bastard who owned the troopy? or any one of the other 400+ cars stolen in THREE MONTHS.... This is costing all of us thousands a year we shouldn't have to pay up..

Agree 100%. If someone stole my car, I wouldn't care if they died in a crash. no sympathy. As Lost said, it is costing us all a lot of $$ in insurance premiums.
