Needs a "HERO" tag.

The aquittal was actually because the suspect thought the woman he beat up used a racial slur. Minorities get to beat up whitey whenever they want? They get to hit girls, too?

That's an absurd ruling.

Physical assult is justified if I've been insulted? Not even that - if I misheard somebody and wrongly think that I've been insulted, then it's OK for me to assault them?

Ridiculous logic.
 
2006-03-28 11:38:21 AM
I'm all for beating the snot out of slow drivers, btw.

1) Assault someone
2) Claim that you thought that they called you something offensive
3) Not guilty!
 
2006-03-28 12:01:18 PM
Maybe the suspect was in a long-term relationship with the speed limit and the news caught him by surprise.

Article: "Because he so believed that insult was made to him the issue of whether it was or whether it wasn't is not critically important," he (the judge) said.

A DARWIN man who grabbed a woman in a road rage attack

Enough said.

Bah. Racism/insult/legality discussions are boring.

I think we should look further into the concept of administering beatings to slow drivers in the left lane.

Seriously... what's the C_ word that would be so offensive that it vindicates some guy attacking a female in her car?

/sheltered life
//I thought the word started with an "N".
 
2006-03-28 01:50:58 PM
Damn. Didn't the reporter who Scalia flipped at know they could have legally assaulted the Supreme Court Judge?
 
2006-03-28 01:51:19 PM
Why don't we administer beatings to speeders too? Then we're being fair.
 
2006-03-28 01:51:49 PM
Bah...I don't believe in Darwin.

Brave aboriginie...grabbing woman....some of us dream of that scenario...let him grab someone who will fark him up and see how brave he is. I'll take that boomerang out of his nose and stick it up his black as*

Wow. So the race card works in other countries perhaps even better than it does in the U.S. Commit assault? Just claim you thought the victim tossed a racial slur in your direction and your charges will be dismissed.

Surely you're trolling.

" "Because he so believed that insult was made to him the issue of whether it was or whether it wasn't is not critically important," he (the judge) said."

Isn't that the excuse Bush uses for Iraq?
 
2006-03-28 01:54:45 PM
Okay, so he instigated by yelling, got flipped off, then he escalated it, and it's not his fault because of some alleged racial slur. What kind of BS is that?
 
2006-03-28 01:54:57 PM
why, when I go to court I don't get the retarded judge?
 
2006-03-28 01:55:25 PM
I don't think it was 'coon.' That seems to me to be a very American Southern-centric word. I can think of two other 'c' words, both dealing with genitalia (though of opposite designs).
 
2006-03-28 01:55:25 PM
"defence of provocation"

That's an interesting legal concept. So you are justified in giving someone a beatdown just because they pissed you off?
 
2006-03-28 01:55:31 PM
Is this going to be the monthly "I have a right to go the speed limit in the left lane because I'm an asshat" flamewar thread?

The important thing here is that we should all agree that the magistrate deserves to be beat up.

cazz, RTFA.

the aborigine was the woman's passenger. although it was pretty humorous reading you spout off on what you thought were the facts...the rest of your comments help to paint a nice self-portrait...
 
2006-03-28 01:59:00 PM
Sweet. All slow driver should be beaten.
 
2006-03-28 01:59:17 PM
Wow. Some retards will find any reason to deny Bush is incompetent. Get a life.
 
2006-03-28 01:59:42 PM
So would the argument "He started it" or "He wouldn't stop looking at me" work as a defense, also?

Speeders get to beat up law-abiding citizens whenever they want? They get to hit girls, too?

This was in Austrialia. If this happend in the US, that guy would not have gotten off so easy.

I think that thar called me a .

The beatings may now begin.

It is in Australia...idiot..chances are the attacker..if he was insulted by a racial slur...was aboriginie also. I'll spout off if I please.

Wow. Holy Fark Filter. I didn't even type a bad word.

No. You have to be racially insulted. Since white people can't be racially insulted, the ruling is racist.

In making a not guilty finding magistrate David Loadman said the important principle was that Mr Daye, who is of Burmese descent and dark skinned, believed that he had been insulted.

So if a schizophrenic kills somebody, that's okay because the important principle is that he believed the person he killed was actually a fifth-dimension demon come to destroy the Earth?

To hell with reality--feelings are all that matter.

What a bunch of bull crap. The judge needs to have a traffic cone slowly, but surely, shoved up his anus.

What a complete and utterly retarded judge.
 
2006-03-28 02:05:41 PM

Call me a retard, but that was kind of funny, and from what they quoted kind of true. Iraq was about WMD and connection to 9/11. Bush has said since, whether that threat existed or didn't, is not critically important to his decision to go to war. To paraphrase using the posters quote. Indeed, Bush has said even knowing what he knows today about those issues, he still would have made the same decision. OK, here is where you call me a retard....
 
2006-03-28 02:06:00 PM
what a joke. So the idea here, according to this magistrate, is blacks can assault anyone they want without reprisal as long as they claim they heard a racial comment? Wonder if they get caught robbing a house they can say they thought they heard a racial comment earlier and now they are taking reparations?

Grab me through my car window and you will hear a racial slur. It sounds like a Smith & Wesson.
 
2006-03-28 02:06:53 PM
Who cares....the fact is....let him come to my window of MY car....and see if he gets back to his.
 
2006-03-28 02:08:46 PM
Ah, no free speech in Australia!

Wait, we still have that in the USA don't we?
 
2006-03-28 02:10:06 PM
She was asking for it. Did you see that skirt?

Indiana made rulings like this the standard in 1992. Proof is from Hart vs. Indiana where whitey was trying to subliminally cause the proud black man to rob stores and sell drugs. He shot her and stole her purse. He was aquitted as he thought he was being subliminally altered.

.wtf.

That's the insanity defense. If you are through no fault of your own incapable of telling right from wrong, you are not criminally responsible. See the Shania Twain thread right above this one on the main page.
