Police were called to a primary school after reports that a girl was in possession of a brick and a pair of scissors.

OH NOES! teh native has a brick!!
 
2006-06-14 09:58:21 AM
Working hard to turn into America, eh?

Those Aussies are so primitive. Here in the 21st century we taser the little punks and are done with it. Most efficient.

a brick and a pair of scissors.

That girl was just a robe and a sheet of paper short of being able to resolve legal disputes in Florida.
 
2006-06-14 01:37:28 PM
And here I thought Aussie police just carried around boomerangs to throw at people.
 
2006-06-14 01:39:34 PM
I didn't RTFA, and I swear I was going to joke that she was carrying scissors. Once again, reality is the joke.
 
2006-06-14 01:39:49 PM
that's not a knife
 
2006-06-14 01:40:54 PM
Why would she even BRING a brick to school?
 
2006-06-14 01:41:04 PM
Crikey, she's gorgeous!

Now, whot ohm gunna do 'ere, is ohm gunna take this little savage an' sproy 'er down wit' peppah sproy, then ohm gunna shove me thumb up 'er butt'ole!

"a brick and a pair of scissors"



Been a while since we had a good ole' fashioned "brick and scissor"-ing 'round these parts.


/i reckon.
 
2006-06-14 01:41:20 PM
The girl just wanted to play a game - all she needed was a piece of paper.

No wonder she got upset.
 
2006-06-14 01:41:34 PM
And yet another primitive castration ritual was narrowly avoided.
 
2006-06-14 01:42:21 PM
Dont know why this made me laugh...

And here I thought Aussie police just carried around boomerangs to throw at people.

Sounds like a good idea - no residual chemical burn, no electrical effects.

However, whoever got hit with them would sue the boomerang manufacturer, and the inventors, too.

I hope the Aborigines have saved up on their bones. :-D

I see you've played macey bricky before.

/got nuthin.

Scissors, paper.. WHAM, brick. Brick kills rock.

We dont need no education.
We dont need no thought control.
No dark sarcasm in the classroom.
Teacher, leave those kids alone.
Hey, teacher, leave those kids alone!
All in all its just another brick in the wall.
All in all youre just another brick in the wall.

It's the same joke - and Warthog executed it better (IMO).

Thanks though.

I don't think there should be a "rule" that it's not permissable to pepper spray kids. I've seen some violently unruly 10 years olds. They can also carry weapons and they are capable of inflicting injury on others. If an application of pepper spray (which, by the way, causes no lasting damage) is the quickest way to defuse a dangerous situation, then go for it. Maybe the kid will learn a lesson, too.
 
2006-06-14 01:55:03 PM
"Officer down! A ten year old girl hit him with a brick! I need backup and a novelty sized tub of pepper spray!"


At least they didn't spray her with the Super Soaker Oozinator (look it up if you haven't.)
 
2006-06-14 01:55:44 PM
I've seen some pretty aweful tantrums from 10 year olds. If she was in full brick-swinging "you're not the boss of me" rampage mode, I can understand the pepper spray.

There must have been a reason that the school needed to call the cops on her in the first place.

/just sayin...
 
2006-06-14 01:56:01 PM
those cops are a bunch of pussies.
 
2006-06-14 01:56:05 PM
I believe we should disipline our youths with pro wrestling moves. It looks impressive, but doesn't really damage the kid.
Example:

Dennis Eggington, from the ALS, says there should be no circumstances where pepper spray is used against a child.

Mr. Eggington needs to be the primary responder to all calls regarding violent children...liable for the outcomes of his actions.
 
2006-06-14 01:57:10 PM
Um, Warthog wins. bonno just pointed the "rock / paper / sissors" part outright.
 
2006-06-14 01:58:13 PM
Pepper Spray Hurts.

/VEISHEA '04
 
2006-06-14 01:58:18 PM
Police admit to spraying the girl, but have defended their actions saying she was behaving in a violent and threatening manner.

Act like a man, get beat down like a man.
 
2006-06-14 01:58:40 PM
Hmmm.

Pepper Spray little brat or possibly take a scissor stab in the leg (or groin!)?

Hmmm... thats a tough one!

/spray the crazy little kid!
//bet she wont do it again :)
 
2006-06-14 02:01:23 PM
scissors and a brick can cause injuries, no doubt.
it was either pepper spray, the taser, or physical restraint.

as much as you guys hate pepper spray and tasers, you seem to forget that physical restraint can cause much more serious injuries.
 
2006-06-14 02:02:24 PM
this is awesome this is similarto what happened here in las vegas except the police had the 17 yr old in custody and when he started running away they shot him dead.the hilarity ensued....well for me it did

MacGyver could make a bomb with a brick and scisors. These police officers were right to stop this so quickly!
 
2006-06-14 02:08:59 PM
good ole flopp: A police officer should be able to physically restrain a 10 year old girl without too much effort.

Seriously. As long as the officer doesn't take the brick / scissors in the face or groin (which should be a simple issue of not being retarded), what's the kid gonna do? The cop should be able to pick her up with one hand.
 
2006-06-14 02:09:02 PM
There are a lot of kids I'd like to pepper spray.
lots of 'parents' really SUCK these days.
 
2006-06-14 02:09:29 PM
I heard about a 9 year old that got tazed by the cops accidently about a week ago from the way it sounds the pin at the end of the wire was deflected by an Ipod the guy had in his shirt pocket it then went off to the side and stuck in the kids thigh. It was never in the news paper other than the part about the father being arrested for assult and being disorderly.

however i know a nurse who was working the ER when they brought the kid in to be checked out and she said the kid was really freaked out.

good ole flopp: as much as you guys hate pepper spray and tasers, you seem to forget that physical restraint can cause much more serious injuries.

If a cop can't restrain a 10 year old without injuring them or themselves, then they shouldn't be a cop.

On the other hand, pepper spray makes a wonderful learning aid.

TEACHER: Johnny, how much is seven minus four?

JOHNNY: Four?

TEACHER: Wrong! >HSSSSHT!

JOHNNY: AAAIGH! THREE! IT"S THREE!
 
2006-06-14 02:19:34 PM
I bet pepper spray would be good on Fajitas.
 
2006-06-14 02:20:18 PM
Someone should have called in Roop and Charlie, or, if necessary, The Goose. They'd have handled it with grace and effectiveness...

...not Max, though...

"Right, little girl...The chain in those handcuffs is made of high-tensile steel. It'd take you six or seven hours to get through it with scissors and a brick. If you're lucky, though, you can cut and pound through your ankle...in just under three hours."

/Maybe it was a 6'2", 250 pound little girl?
//Love Australia anyway. Beat Brazil for us, willya?

untrustworthy: If a cop can't restrain a 10 year old without injuring them or themselves, then they shouldn't be a cop.

That's not true at all. Lots of 10 year olds weigh as much as 100 pounds and they can carry weapons. I'd like to see you tangle with a violent, crazed kid carrying a brick and scissors.

In some cases they can be more dangerous than adults because they don't have a well developed sense of when to give in and stop fighting.
 
2006-06-14 02:26:49 PM
untrustworthy

I'm with you bud, there is no need for excessive force in situations involving children. You walk up, take the objects away from the kid; she cries, and then you handcuff her ass and emotionally scar her for life in the backseat of the cruiser.... etc.

Like to see it? Hell, I'd pay MONEY to see it!

If a cop can't handle a ten year old then how do we expect them to handle someone who is over 6 foot and 200+ pounds?

In some cases they can be more dangerous than adults because they don't have a well developed sense of when to give in and stop fighting.

Pfft. That's bullshiat. Adults that cops deal with are often on drugs/alcohol or have a mental disorder that makes them irrational. Not the same as some kid having a temper tantrum.

I should not have laughed at that, but I did =D The rock-paper-scissors Flordia thing took me a minute, but I lawled too ;p

That said, there can be some pretty farking scary 10 year olds. *was one of them* But even I could be subdued by a grown man. Then again, I usually wasn't armed...

I would've taken that brick from the kid and bashed her head in. Problem solved!

/jk! jk! LOL! BBQ!
//..maybe.
///also, my Kiwi friend informed me there was an Australian rugby player who used to shove his thumb up everyone's butts. Who'da thunk, extra hilarity!
