Had to have a wee chuckle at that. Hubby and I were wondering what all the sirens were for, somebody's going to be in trouble lol

There was a massive police action down new brighton road between the palms and hills road. My friend and I were on the way back from the movies, we almost got run over on the motorbike we were riding! There must have been at least 24 police cars we saw coming from all over the city. Could this be the same affair? We left the palms at maybe 2320?

lol. reminded me of Outrageous Fortune when Van West stole a big yellow digger.

Looks like a front end loader to me .

It's all fun and games until they smash into somebody and kill them.

Typical over reaction and waste of resources .

A few years ago I saw a dozen cops sneaking around the golf course . there were several cars on the road , several in the car park , and more on the course . fire engines turned up , and an ambo .
I asked what on earth was going down . 1 man up a tree with a rope round his neck threatening to jump FFS .

Ya get burgled and how many show ?

I know right, my flat screen tv is worth far more than a human life! What were they thinking.

Unlike what you play on your PlayStation it is no game , it's actually a serious matter that the cops brought to an end safely and they should be commended for

Great post !

cmscott111, Jun 19, 12:03 am

Probably more likely to jump with cops everywhere . a dozen at least .
What can a dozen do that one cant ? . not a great use of resources .

golfaholic2, Jun 19, 1:00 am

a dozen ? Yeah right , no embellishing that story is there !

cmscott111, Jun 19, 1:58 am

$100,000 in damages.

If you had a family member about to commit suicide, I bet you'd be grateful to have so much help on hand. Have come compassion >_>

Kid is going to be paying for the damages for next 20 years .Well he should but court wont impose restitution on a 16 yr old .

probably not, but there'll be nothing to stop the insurance company taking him to the civil court, its happened before.
