Headed up to Tocumwal for a few days, beautiful day today but fkn cold air. Seems the town beach and those on the NSW side are still closed but there's caravans and Winnebagos everywhere and campers in the forest on the Vic side. Mexican Terrorists everywhere. I fkn hope they have good sleeping bags, it was -1 last night and similar tonight, no fkn chance id be camping on the river this time of year.

What sort of parents did these kids have.

I am staggered by the number of teenagers roaming the streets at night.

https://www.news.com.au/national/queensland/news/four-teenagers-killed-in-townsville-car-crash/news-story/ebb13838285822adf919f17e0932292c

While harsh, I also think the world is net better off with this event. Can’t imagine these delinquents doing much more than wasting the police and judicial systems time.

I do wonder about the parents. But right now I just can’t imagine what the parents are going through. Very harsh call on the kids there though. Way too harsh. The only good thing is they didn’t take anyone else with them.

On another note, not the first time only the driver survived, and with minor injuries, is that fate or an instinctive move by the driver when the crash is inevitable to save themselves?

Now here’s where I get mean, however old or sorry he is, I hope he gets serious time. 4 dead. He killed them, even if someone grabbed the wheel, stolen car, obviously speeding and alledgedly unlicensed. He took the loaded gun, pointed it and hoped to the best. Now he should pay for the carnage.

^ maybe harsh, but according to Facebook, these kids are known trouble makers. Maybe it's just Darwin's theory.

And yes, TG they didn't take anyone with them.

And while we are all hanging shit on police across the world, imagine the poor Cops and other first responders who have to deal with this type of shit.

The driver has a steering wheel to hang onto, so even if no one is wearing a seat belt they've better able to brace for impact and not get thrown around the inside.

And yeah, What'sinaname, my dad used to be in the search and rescue up in the bush. They'd get called out to car accidents, usually in the winding section of road immediately south of town called the Toc Bends. Because Dad was short and skinny, he'd be the one who had to climb into the wreckage over the bodies to see if anyone was still alive.

Spot on!!

On other topic apparently if you don't support the protests yesterday because of the potential health impacts related to the current pesky pandemic then you are either a racist cause BLM or a sheeple cause there is no pandemic it's all a hoax.

Might just be me but WTF - these especially racist must be the most overused (inappropriately more often than not) words in the world atm Rolling Eyes

Yeah I can’t imagine being a first responder, very special people.

I’m sure we all hope to Christ there is no second wave, but **** is I can’t believe they did it! So do dumb and irresponsible. Not just the spread risk the first responders who had to be on call

And I can’t tell you how over I am of the words racist, misogynist, etc etc while we keep labelling people we keep pointing out our differences

"Racist" is so over used It's basically devalued.

Watching the news last night, they showed footage of the protest and how at 4:42pm there was silence for the 432 Indigenous people to die in Police custody. By brain went, wow, that's a lot til they added "in the last 30 years". Then I went WTF, you'd obviously prefer that to be zero but 14 people a year.......you'd save more than that by just narrowing the health gap.

Anyway, the number pricked at me, because I see the protesters here are making it about Aboriginal deaths in custody and a google search showed "news" sites all over the numbers. But none of them that I saw mentioned this.

Quote:
Abstract:
Twenty-five years has passed since the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody (RCIADIC). This paper examines the trends and characteristics of Indigenous deaths in custody since 1991–92, using data obtained through the National Deaths in Custody Program (NDICP). NDICP data show Indigenous people are now less likely than non-Indigenous people to die in prison custody, largely due to a decrease in the death rate of Indigenous prisoners from 1999–2000 to 2005–06. Coinciding with this decrease in the death rate of Indigenous prisoners is a decrease in the hanging death rate of Indigenous prisoners. Monitoring trends and characteristics of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous deaths in custody supports the development of proactive strategies addressing this important issue.


Published last year, I haven't read it yet, I'm sure it's just more racist propaganda.
