    Sorry Eddystone, but as you well know, the Lockhart murders were a man killing his wife and children. Completely different to a school or shopping centre shooting.
    ..
    What is the difference?

    Then these same events are completely different to every school shooting in the US.

    IMO, it makes a difference based on motive formation and especially the stories people are following. A potential perpetrator may identify aspects of himself as making a previous killer ‘a bit like me’. That person’s story becomes a possible map for the potential perp to be guided by. Basically the Werther Effect, or Kurt Cobain rides again.
    Mass public shootings by nutters were preceded by ‘going postal’ – ex-post office employees dismissed shooting people in their old workplace. That map was replaced in media attention by the school shootings and public place shootings.
    The Port Arthur killer was taught and rewarded by media, especially the October 1995 ‘A Current Affair’. The Dunblane killings were his opportunity to launch in complete confidence of a blaze of publicity. His model was Julian Knight.
    The Monash killer launched in the middle of the huge publicity for the Washington snipers. However, I believe he got the whole idea of getting guns in the first place from Lee Rhiannon and her ABC partners’ campaign against semi-auto pistols, when everyone else had stopped profiteering over guns in the media after the Olympics.

    The victims were not strangers, they were typically students at the school, the fact that you are unaware of a motive does not mean that the crime lacked motive, and no serious trial is typically held because the shooter is either killed at the scene or kills themselves.

    In a school of 3,000 students, such as Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High, they’re almost all strangers.

    And, if you recall, Dover, the accused in both the Hoddle St Massacre and the Port Arthur Massacre, both pled Guilty, obviating the need for a Trial and the presentation of Evidence.

    ‘Not much has changed since the days of Mr Parry Okedene.’

    The editor of the Broad Arrow Standard is crusading against the Aborigines [Protection] Board , paid 1% of tax revenue while doing nothing at all to protect Firsts. A nice little earner indeed, and the start of an ‘industry’ enriching a few over the many.

    Yes Struth, I have been to the States. Several times. Yes, Americans have a much greater sense of self-reliance than Australians. But to claim it is a result of the 2nd amendment is disingenuous in the least. They also don’t get endless welfare like in Australia. And the tall poppy syndrome amongst the general population is not as evident. And Venezuela has more gun murders than the US because they ban guns? Got nothing to do with the economy? Let’s pull another single country for comparison shall we? Switzerland has very liberal gun laws, just like the US, but as far as I know, has only had a single gun massacre – in 2001. The lack of gun massacres in Australia since the 1996 gun laws is multi-variate. The new gun laws have had an effect, but are not the only factor. Democrats in the US want to restrict guns to over 21 years old, as they are not mature enough to own guns, but want the same people to be given the right to vote at 16.

    You are as bad as the lefties who want to base our education system on that of Norway, because apparently it is so good – of cour claimed by so many who have not been educated by that system. So how do we pay for it? Norway has a 30% GST. That’s how they pay for it. So do we bring in a 30% GST? You have more rights to buy alcohol in Japan than in Australia. If you want, you can buy a beer from the 7/11 at 7am. Japanese arguably drink as much as Australians – but I have never seen them punch on. People and cultures are different and you can’t apply a single factor between populations and expect it to have the same effect.

    Last day tomorrow so I’m having an early night and I have an appointment so hopefully there are one or two more deals around.

    I’ve been invited back next year and they want me in Sydney in April for the big show at Rosehill.

    Bernardi upsets TheirABC by calling their pin-up, tax-hoovering, Ruinable Energy poster-boy the monorail salesman from The Simpson’s …

    Cory Bernardi has used his party’s SA election campaign launch to push for nuclear energy in the state, and also to take aim at tech entrepreneur Elon Musk.
    The Australian Conservatives have called for law changes to allow for “all forms of energy production”, including nuclear power generation.
    During a lengthy speech at his party’s campaign launch at Kent Town in Adelaide’s inner east, Senator Bernardi ridiculed Labor leader Jay Weatherill’s political relationship with Elon Musk.
    Senator Bernardi invoked pop culture to describe the billionaire businessman’s involvement in SA’s energy market. “I’m convinced [he’s] the monorail salesman from The Simpsons,” Senator Bernardi said.

    TP,
    You edited out; ” Knowing there had recently been some tribal disturbances, in one of which a warrior had been killed, the Sergeant porceeded to the camp and satisfied himself there had been no fighting.”
    So these people were camped near the Broad Arrow Hospital (which another article on the page shows had full capacity of 12 patients, many with fever) and they were fighting. Then they moved off to Paddington.

    These are very early times you refer to TP. Many whities died also. It’s said of those times in the goldfields that you wouldnt know who of your friends would be alive the next day. It was not just a black issue. Rather than highlighting an issue, to a large extent I feel you are merely championing victimhood.

    It’s got everything to do with the economy and also corruption, and culture.
    You are agreeing with me here, do you realise this?
    If you outlaw guns only outlaws have them.
    And when you gun down people you are generally regarded as an outlaw.

    Let’s pull another single country for comparison shall we? Switzerland has very liberal gun laws, just like the US, but as far as I know, has only had a single gun massacre – in 2001.

    They have 8 million people, more direct democracy than the USA which helps and therefore not doing the whole multiculti blame the white people divisiveness that plagues the USA (and us) and other cultural Marxists attacks on it’s culture that the USA (and us) suffer from that causes the type of fuckwit that become school shooters.

    But it’s nice to see that you are in agreement with me.
    It’s not banning guns that is the problem, as you’ve just stated with your look at Switzerland.

    That was poorly written.

    Not banning guns in Switzerland and the United States proves that not only is gun ownership not the problem, but strangely, two of the most free and democratic and rich nations on the planet have high gun ownership in their populations.

    One has been attacked vigorously by Marxism and yet the more direct democracy of Switzerland has minimised this, stopped their entry into the E.U. and quite literally made it the closest thing to heaven on this earth.

    Socialists call to replace ‘outdated’ Victorian state flag with Eureka flag
    IAN ROYALL, Herald Sun
    an hour ago
    Subscriber only
    VICTORIA’S newest political party has called for the official state flag to be replaced by the Eureka Stockade flag.

    The Victorian Socialists, which recently launched to target this year’s state election, say the current design is outdated and doesn’t reflect modern Victoria.

    The flag is a traditional British blue ensign with the southern cross and an imperial crown. It was adopted in 1877 with a minor change to the crown in 1953.

    Party spokesman Stephen Jolly said the current flag was embarrassing and irrelevant.

    “It reflects the whole colonial, kneel-down-to-the-Queen attitude from the 1800s,’’ he said. “It’s Victorian by name and Victorian by era.

    “Many people probably don’t even know what the flag even is.’’

    Thugs on the run after attacking man inside Keysborough home
    Aneeka Simonis, Herald Sun
    February 25, 2018 4:25pm
    Subscriber only
    A YOUNG man has rushed to the aid of his 49-year-old neighbour viciously beaten to the head with a hammer inside his Keysborough home overnight.

    The victim’s wife ran “crying and screaming” to the good Samaritan’s home, alerting the man and his father to the bloody horror which had unfolded in her bedroom.

    She was asleep next to her husband when he was bludgeoned in the head with the weapon.

    Four adults and a one-year-old child were inside the home at the time.

    “There was blood everywhere. The man was holding his head trying to keep it in,” said the dad.

    “My son was holding him and taking directions from paramedics on the phone.

    “It was very hard to get inside because there was smashed glass everywhere.”

    Police say three balaclava-clad thugs entered the Henderson Road home about 2am.

    They fled the home in a getaway car driven by an accomplice.

    All four offenders remain on the run.

    “My daughter woke to someone screaming. She woke us up. Shortly after the woman was knocking on our door,” the neighbour said.

    “She was crying and screaming and asking for help. She looked traumatised.”

    WHAT should have been a night to remember turned into a horror memory one young woman wishes she could forget after being hurt in a luxury cruise boat brawl on her 21st birthday.

    Several people were injured in the fight — with birthday girl Lana Marie Battaglia carried off the luxury catamaran on a stretcher after being pushed down the stairs — as police waded in to break up the fracas involving a large group of revellers.

    Ms Battaglia, from Oran Park, was yesterday released from St Vincent’s Hospital.

    One man critical after four robberies – Sydney’s Inner West
    Sunday, 25 February 2018 02:15:03 AM

    Police are investigating four robberies in Sydney’s inner-west yesterday, which are believed to be linked, with one victim left critically injured.

    About 12.20am (Saturday 24 February 2018), a 29-year-old man was walking on Arthur Street, Ashfield, when he was grabbed from behind and assaulted.

    A male offender stole his personal property, fleeing in an easterly direction on Arthur Street.

    As a result of the assault the victim was left with swelling and bruising to his face.

    About 5.30am the same day, a 31-year-old man was walking on Wellbank Street, North Strathfield, when he was grabbed and threatened.

    He handed his property to the male offender, who was in company with another man.

    A struggle then took place between the parties, causing the victim to fall to the ground and injure his elbow.

    The two offenders then fled the scene in a dark coloured hatchback.

    In a third incident, about 1pm yesterday, a 64-year-old man parked his car on Newington Street, Enmore, when he was approached by two males.

    The males assaulted the victim, causing him to fall to the ground injuring his head.

    The men then stole his wallet and were seen by a witness leaving the scene in a dark coloured hatchback.

    The 64-year-old man was taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital where he remains in a critical condition with a bleed on the brain.

    About 1.30pm the same day a 27-year-old man was walking along Hawkhurst Street, Marrickville, when he was grabbed from behind.

    The man was pulled to the ground, losing consciousness momentarily before he observed three males going through his pockets, taking his mobile phone and wallet.

    They were last seen getting into the black hatchback, which was later identified as stolen.

    This car was located a short time later in a laneway in Dulwich Hill.

    Police believe the three incidents are linked.

    One male has been described as Black African appearance, aged in his early to mid 20s, 155-160cm tall, wearing track pants and a black jacket.

    Another has been described as Middle Eastern/Mediterranean appearance, aged in his early to mid 20s, 165-170cm tall, with a ponytail, track pants and a black jacket.

    Inquiries continue.

    The Japanese and American ways of thinking about crime, privacy, and police powers are so different—and Japan is such a generally peaceful country—that it’s functionally impossible to fully isolate and compare the two gun control regiments.

    Very privileged young birthday girl. The luxury cruiser looks to be in Jamie Packer class.

    The anti-discrimination Act seems to have worked. Look at the number of women getting violent on the cruise.
    Officers arrested six people who are due to appear at the Downing Centre Local Court on March 14.

    A 23-year-old woman, 24-year-old man and 26-year-old man were charged with affray.

    Another 23-year-old woman was charged with common assault.

    A 25-year-old woman was charged with hinder police and another a 25-year-old woman was charged with assault and resisting police.

    I don’t think so. Records show that , edited for Infant Mortality, Lifespan in England was unchanged from 1840 to 1960.

    The Japanese are not as wealthy in living standards as the two countries mentioned.
    They have a solid subservient culture in place, uncorrupted by multiculturalism and therefore would have virtually no gun crime if they all had an M60 each.

    You can’t have a nation of warring tribes (multiculti) and cultural Marxist divisiveness, and an unarmed population and survive.

    I don’t think so. Records show that , edited for Infant Mortality, Lifespan in England was unchanged from 1840 to 1960.

    Period life expectancy at age 65 in England and Wales only slightly increased through the 19th century but has subsequently doubled.

  58. RobK

    Nemkat,
    Take a look around some graveyards in the goldfields for better understanding. Not many aborigines in England. Many deaths in the goldfields didn’t make it to gazetted cemetaries. In quite a few cases graves were gazetted afterwards if they were near roads etc. Generally life expectancy has increased over that time.

    He’s quoting mother England as if it were the same for outback aboriginals!!!
    Or even whites on the outback, those out on the gold fields etc.
    FMD.
    I’ve seen it all now.

    Blacks killed whites and whites killed blacks.
    Whites killed blacks in far smaller numbers than the left are pushing and the whites were killed in larger numbers than were admitted.
    Many of the white against black killings were in retaliation for the sneak up killings of whites where the whites didn’t know which aboriginal killed them but knew it was aboriginals due to bodies pinned to the ground with spears.
    This was a whole different world and to sit back in air conditioned judgement in 2018 is pathetic to say the least.

  60. Sydney Boy

    Correct Struth. Glad to see you are agreeing with me. Free access to guns does not make a strong economy, and you can’t import one part of a society and expect it to have the same effect in another. Banning guns alone does not stop gun massacres. Australia has had only a single gun massacre since the new gun laws, so obviously it has had AN effect. Would it have such an effect in the US? Unlikely.

  61. Sydney Boy

    And stop with the rubbish about people not allowed to defend themselves in their own homes. In every case in the last few years the defenders have been exonerated.

    Per Capita GDP in Japan is way above Australia and the U.S..
    They have no gun crime anyway, so what would be the point of ”an M60 each”?

  67. rickw

    Correct. But we are NOT talking about murder rates. we are talking about gun massacres.

    “Gun massacre” is a purely arbitrary definition of a fundamentally rare type of incident. If you tweek the definition slightly then the claimed impact varies greatly. If there was any true impact, should you not be able to see the impact in the underlying data?

    Ultimately I don’t think it makes much difference to a victim if they were murdered or murdered in a “massacre “.

    Australia has had only a single gun massacre since the new gun laws, so obviously it has had AN effect.

    My beef all along with you is this simple fact.

    Just because they don’t have guns doesn’t stop them killing by other means.
    We have had thirteen massacres since 1996 and many ways of killing used.
    The gun violence is always to this day, there and reported most nights on our TV.
    Hundreds a year murdered with guns after the banning, but you sir, think gun banning is successful because you can blurt out a statistic that is about one off events and using a particular weapon/method.

    Outlawing guns means only our outlaws are using them and they obviously still are.
    They’re shooting the shit out of us and each other, knifing and burning and drowning and bashing but as long as one particular method of killing is replaced by another, you’re happy.

    Maintaining a decent culture minimises these things, and we haven’t maintained ours.
    Neither has the States, but they are better able to bring theirs back because they have free speech and the righteous holders of their culture are armed (Trump speeches example above)

    Strangely enough, you appear to have completely ignored the point of my post.

    That is, New Zealand did not implement the strict gun laws that we did here in Australia, yet the record on massacres is similar in both countries.

    Therefore, the claim that Howard’s gun laws have prevented gun massacres is not really supported by the facts. Or at least it doesn’t explain why New Zealand has also avoided such massacres.

    Police investigating as man shot dead at property in Brisbane suburb of Wakerley

    Subscriber only
    A BIKIE associate has been shot dead after he ran at police with a knife after officers were called to his ex-girlfriend’s home in Brisbane’s east.

    Liam Scorsese, 31, was shot in a suburban street in Wakerley after officers arrived within minutes of a Triple-0 call about 9.50am .

    Scorsese is a known Comancheros associate to police.

    He was jailed for three months in 2017 after a sickening attack on a bus driver in Surfers Paradise in September 2016.

    He also stabbed himself in the chest several times after a relationship breakdown in 2016.

    He is understood to have been released on parole in November.

    Acting Chief Superintendent Mick Niland said police tried to use a taser on him but it failed.

    Sure. My point was they’re on the books but ignored by police and pollies alike. I know many people who have attracted attention from police and firearms for trivial offences and had to endure months of confiscated licence and weapons and crawling to get them back.

    Racecaller: ‘I don’t know where the horses are’ as rain swamps Country Championships Qualifier
    RAY THOMAS, The Daily Telegraph
    February 25, 2018 6:14pm
    IN heavy rain and near-zero visibility, Cosmologist has caused an upset result in the $150,000 Country Championships Qualifier (1400m) at Mudgee, but equally commendable is the performance of the racecaller.

    Sky Racing’s broadcaster Col Hodges had the unenviable task of calling the race where $51 outsider Cosmologist, under jockey Eleanor Webster-Hawes, took up the early running.

    This proved an advantageous position given the conditions as Cosmologist was never headed to score by more than two lengths.

    But Hodges’s attempt to call the race during the torrential downpour deserved the thumbs up too.

    The rain became heavier moments before the start of the Country Championships Qualifier and visibility was so poor during the race it was impossible to make out the runners on Sky Racing’s coverage for most of the race.

    On several occasions Hodges said he couldn’t see the runners and explained to listeners that he may have wait until the field entered the home straight.

    Ainsley Gotto, former assistant to prime minister John Gorton has died

    7:36PM February 25, 2018

    Reporter
    Canberra
    @rachelbaxendale

    Ainsley Gotto, who became former prime minister John Gorton’s principal private secretary at just 22, has died, leaving behind a ­secret trove of official and personal documents that will now be made public by the National ­Library.

    Ms Gotto, 71, is famously ­remembered for the words of sacked minister Dudley Erwin who blamed her for his downfall, telling journalist Laurie Oakes, “it wiggles, it’s shapely, it’s cold-blooded and its name is Ainsley Gotto”.

    Ms Gotto remained in Mr ­Gorton’s office after he resigned as prime minister and became ­defence minister in 1971, before going on to a career as an entrepreneur and businesswoman.

    In October 2015 she donated 20 boxes of documents to the ­National Library, adding to a collection of personal letters, official documents and insight into the inner workings of the Prime Minister’s Office that now comprises more than 45 boxes.

    “The story can go no further until I die or release the papers,” Ms Gotto said at the time.

    “Presumably on my death they can do anything, but I don’t have any intention of dying.”

    Ms Gotto was born in Brisbane in 1946, attended school in Melbourne and completed a stenography course at Canberra Technical College aged 15.

    She worked for Mr Erwin, who was then party whip, before heading to Gorton’s office where Mr Erwin later said she “ruled with a ruthless authority”.

    In his biography of Gorton, Ian Hancock wrote that despite the rumours, there was nothing to suggest the former prime minister had had a relationship with his chief of staff.

    Qld teen charged with attacking police
    AAP / 11:03am AEDT

    A teenage girl is in custody after allegedly assaulting three police officers and a woman in Queensland’s outback.

    It’s alleged the 17-year-old girl from Eagleby, south of Brisbane, got into an argument with a 34-year-old woman in the street at Roma, in western Queensland, around 2:10am on Sunday.

    Police say she then attacked the woman, punching her in the face and pulling her hair before fleeing the scene.

    When police later found the girl and tried to arrest her, it’s alleged she punched a male constable in the head and struck a female constable in the mouth, before assaulting a male sergeant who took her into custody.

    The three officers suffered bruises and were treated at Roma Hospital.

    The girl been charged with three counts of serious assault police and one count of assault occasioning bodily harm and is due to appear in Roma Magistrates Court on Monday.

    Lindfield Learning Village at old UTS Kuring-gai campus running behind with parents left in the dark

    WELCOME to the education revolution — just don’t rely on it coming any time soon.

    This abandoned building on Sydney’s north shore, quietly gathering dust and decaying, has for years been billed as a solution to the chronic overcrowding that plagues local public schools.

    The six-storey former UTS Kuring-gai campus, which has sat dormant since the last professor turned out the lights in 2015, is scheduled to open next year as the Lindfield Learning Village, the crowning jewel in a rollout of new schools with an innovative teaching model for 2000 students from kindergarten to Year 12.

    But inside the cavernous concrete building there are no hints of a bright educational future, only signs pointing the way to a deserted cafeteria and long-gone security.

    Overturned desks, pedestal fans and filing cabinets litter a labyrinth of hallways, while outside a stranded tinnie dumped under a stairwell is full of discarded cans of old paint.

    FORMER US president Barack Obama is returning to Australia to visit Sydney — and possibly Melbourne — as part of an international speaking tour.

    The surprise visit comes amid speculation Mr Obama was to join Prince Harry for the Invictus Games which are being held in October.

    However, it can be revealed Mr Obama has locked in his attendance at a marquee function for just 350 guests to be held at the Art Gallery of NSW on March 23.

    While Mr Obama is in Australia, former first lady ­Michelle Obama will be on her own speaking engagement tour in Canada.

    Mr Obama’s tour will also include a visit to New Zealand on March 21 and a stopover in Singapore.

    But, for my part, I have never placed the hopes and dreams of Australians so far above those of foreigners that their needs become unimportant in the debate. I support a generous immigration intake because it lifts the welfare of numerous potential migrants, without necessarily harming the welfare of existing residents.

    This column by Fairfax’s failed calorie counting fatty Jessica Irvine just has to be read to be belived. She is stupendously stupid in a beautiful and almost charming way.

    The majority of school shooters in America:

    1. Are not raised by their biological father
    2. Are on meds for depression or mental illness
    3. Are first or 2nd generation immigrants
    4. Are on the bottom of the social hierarchy
    5. Are usually rejected by girls

    Australia also has troubled boys who tick all these boxes.
    We have to show why they don’t shoot up their schoolmates.

    Sounds like an argument for immigrant taxation to be quarantined to support immigrant social welfare. Sounds like they will be running surpluses…

    This is of course exactly the right approach.

    Just take a punt that everything will turn out ok for existing residents.

    And surely there’s no problems actually happening in places like Tarneit or Hoppers Crossing. I mean, if there were, surely somebody in the North Fitzroy/Clifton Hill dinner party circuit would have said something about it to an ABC/Fairfax journalist, and they would have launched an immediate investigation?

    I don’t get this:
    My yr 11 son was assaulted at school by some punk in yr 10 (just under a year younger in age).
    Punk hits my unprepared son in the gob. Busted lip.
    Punk wants to go on with it.
    By now son is in fighting stance, advances and evens the score (very loud whack).
    Punk rapidly backs up as my son advances. Others step in before punk is laid out.
    Everything caught on video, which I have seen.
    Both suspended for one day. Then a meeting with principal on Tuesday etc etc.

    How is it that my son cops the same punishment as the perpetrator especially when the punk was ready to keep going after the first sly punch?
    Surely this is a case of punishing someone for self defence?

    I’m bloody cranky.

    Comments please, esp from teachers.

  169. Snoopy

    If everything was captured on video then the initial assault on your son was a clearly the result of a conspiracy which didn’t go according to plan. Apparently. 😀

  170. 132andBush

    Exactly what I thought, Snoopy.
    Apparently my son was guilty of calling him a “dickhead”.

  171. Muddy

    OK, weird question from one of the lesser intellectuals here:
    Is it possible to identify the sound of gunfire using technology? If yes, might it be practical to create a system in schools which works similar to smoke/CO2 detectors in large institutions where an alarm goes to the appropriate responsive agency?

    I realise this doesn’t prevent anything, but merely acts as an early-warning system that is not dependent on a telephone call or duress alarm from a human. Logistically and financially it would be a nightmare to make such a system universal of course.

  172. Motelier

    Comments please, esp from teachers.

    Really easy to understand, violence is verbotten, no matter if you are attacking or defending.

    Rest assured however, the schoolyard cred your son will have will now be over the top.

    A very similar thing happened to my eldest. Older, taller thug came up behind him held my son with one arm around his neck and started laying into his head with the other. The training from karate classes kicked in and the thug was dispensed quickly.

    All this happened in front of the “playground” teacher. The version from my son and the teacher were very similar.

    Both suspended for a week (grrrrr). Sensi at karate dojo even came in to the school for support.

    End result, Sensi proud of my sons actions, all kids ar school gave my eldest respect.

  179. Rae

    Did your son precipitate the event by calling the other kid a “dickhead”?

  180. jupes

    Is it possible to identify the sound of gunfire using technology?

    Gunfire is very loud (unless it is suppressed or silenced).

    It would probably be a better use of resources to arm teachers rather than to have an ” alarm going to the appropriate responsive agency?”

    They didn’t seem to respond too well in Florida.

  181. Infidel Tiger

    I’m bloody cranky.

    Every day your kid isn’t in school is a blessing.

    You only have to look at the human filth that are teachers to know that exposing your kids to those weirdos is child abuse.

    Tee up a boxing ring with good trainers and arrange a proper, supervised and regulated contest.
    Good idea. Son is blue/black in karate and has a brother who instructs tae kwon doe.
    Punk is already a weed smoker.

  183. Snoopy

    Video of the assault has likely been uploaded to social media. Get a copy or at least take screenshots.

    Demand a letter from the principal acknowledging that your son did not initiate the fight and should not have been suspended.

    Tell the principal that if the letter is not provided you will:

    1. Write to the regional director and the minister
    2. Contact local media.
    3. Consider making a formal complaint of assault to the police.

    Mean it.

  184. jupes

    jupes
    Violence is verbotten!

    Well if that’s the principal’s answer, then the next question is “does he expect students to not to respond to attacks from other students.”

    If indeed he does then smack the prick in the head.

  185. Snoopy

    If your son was eagerly participating in a verbal stoush beforehand then I withdraw my advice of 11.09.

  186. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    It would probably be a better use of resources to arm teachers rather than to have an ” alarm going to the appropriate responsive agency?”

    I’d suggest a different tack “You want the right to own weapons under the Second Amendment. Fine. You’ll be sworn in as special constables, complete the appropriate training, and patrol the corridors of your local school.” Two weeks recruit camp is considered sufficient to teach a reservist the very basic skills of soldiering….

    132, You could also track down the kids parents and beat them to a pulp.

    Seeing gis parents being physically and mentally humiliated would break that kid far worse than any other punishment you can imagine.

    I would move on. If your son gets hit again, just tell him to hit back. He’ll probably be suspended for a few days. But in the long run a suspension means nothing. The most important thing is your son learns how to protect himself, and to do it without apology.

  189. 132andBush

    Have grilled son.
    No verballing from him. Doesn’t even associate with the idiot.
    Even if he had, does that license physical violence?

    I would think about doing this for sure. Always escalate.

    From BBC News
    Berkshire Hathaway reported a record quarterly and annual profit on Saturday.
    The Republican law reform, approved in December, cut the corporate tax rate to 21% from 35%.
    Mr Buffett, one of the richest men in the world, opposed the plan.
    In his letter to investors, Mr Buffett said the tax cut accounted for nearly half of the firm’s gain in net worth during 2017.
    “A large portion of our gain did not come from anything we accomplished at Berkshire,” he wrote. “Only $36 billion came from Berkshire’s operations. The remaining $29 billion was delivered to us in December when Congress rewrote the US Tax Code.”
    Mr Buffett, who believes in higher taxes for the rich, has said he would have preferred a different tax bill.

    Mr Buffett would prefer Bershire Hathaway not receive a tax cut. If he thinks that the US Government can spend Bershire Hathaway earnings better than Bershire Hathaway can, then he should send his portion straight to the IRS without delay. Otherwise he’d be a hypocrite.

    ZK2A, you do understand the meaning of “shall not be infringed”?

    So you are obviously happy that the method has changed even though the mass murderers are using other methods and still killing.

    And I’ve never said anything like that. Go back and check if you like. Typical straw man argument. Are you sure you are not a liberal lefty?

    There has only been a single gun massacre since – Monash University in 2002. There have been other mass murder events such as arson and car attacks. But hey, if you are not happy that there haven’t been further mass shootings, then you need to seek help.

    These apparently unhygienic practices of which you speak – which was the one that involved a toilet paper tube and a gerbil??

    Asking for a friend. After all, love is love. No really, one can never have enough friends.

    Apart from the expense to the taxpayer funded hospital system, the real problem will be that this sort of perversion will be a normal part of sex education due to ‘safe schools’ or whatever other name they chose to camouflage it with.

    Expect more disease and perversion in the wider population.

  196. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    132, You could also track down the kids parents and beat them to a pulp.

    Not an unknown practice in rural Australia. Some years ago, the father of a well known school bully threw the first punch, and got his block knocked off in retaliation, by the angry father of one of his victims….

  197. 132andBush

    As usual IT has the most pragmatic approach.

    Fisky,
    I’ve told my son if it happens again to not stop till the prick is on the ground, which he’s more than capable of.
    The principal is going to be told this as well.

    How do we fare with the law re self defence in the real world?

  198. twostix

    I’d suggest a different tack “You want the right to own weapons under the Second Amendment. Fine. You’ll be sworn in as special constables, complete the appropriate training, and patrol the corridors of your local school.” Two weeks recruit camp is considered sufficient to teach a reservist the very basic skills of soldiering….

    And here lies the fundamental incomprehension of the authoritarian British colonial subject “conservative” vs the American.

    The heir of the British thinks that the American’s rights are given to him and he can be told what he gets out of them.

    The American laughs in your face at such godless wrongthinking while polishing his collection of AR-15’s and taunts you about once being allowed to own an bb-gun, or speaking, or doing anything without begging permission first.

  199. Fisky

    The principal is going to be told this as well.

    No, don’t do that. It’s unnecessary and will be used against you/your son. Just tell your son to take reasonable steps to defend himself (and only in self-defence), and if he gets suspended again, so be it. If the system is stupid, you can’t change it, just worry about what you can control.

  200. struth

    No, indeed is does not 123andbush.

    From Wiki
    McCormack
    Early life
    McCormack was born in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, and grew up on the family farms in nearby Marrar and Brucedale. He attended St Michael’s Regional High School and Trinity Senior High School (later merged into Kildare Catholic College).[2] After leaving school, McCormack took up a cadetship at The Daily Advertiser, the local daily newspaper. He was appointed editor of the paper in 1991, aged 27, making him reputedly the “youngest newspaper editor in Australia”.[3]

    In 1993, McCormack published a controversial editorial in which he linked homosexuality with AIDS and criticised pride parades. He wrote that “a week never goes by anymore that homosexuals and their sordid behaviour don’t become further entrenched in society […] unfortunately gays are here and, if the disease their unnatural acts helped spread doesn’t wipe out humanity, they’re here to stay”. The article was the subject of three complaints to the Australian Press Council, though none were upheld.[4] McCormack subsequently wrote a second editorial apologising for the first.[5] His remarks resurfaced when he embarked on a career in politics, and he issued further apologies in 2010 and 2017, stating that he had “grown and learnt not only to tolerate, but to accept all people regardless of their sexual orientation or any other trait or feature which makes each of us different and unique”.[6][7]

    McCormack was sacked from The Daily Advertiser in February 2002. In response, “more than 20 journalists, photographers and other editorial staff” staged a 24-hour walkout.[8] McCormack went on to sue the Riverina Media Group for unfair dismissal, and in 2003 settled out of court for an undisclosed amount.[9] He subsequently started his own media and publishing company, MSS Media Services and Solutions.[10] Outside of his professional activities, McCormack served as a director of the Murrumbidgee Turf Club from 1994 to 2003, as well as its official historian.[11] In 1995, he became the owner of “the biggest collection of bound volumes of The Times anywhere in the world outside London”, acquiring 900 volumes from Charles Sturt University when it ran out of storage space.[12]

    Political career
    McCormack was campaign director for Kay Hull, the Nationals MP for Riverina, at the 2004 and 2007 federal elections. Hull announced her retirement from politics in April 2010, and McCormack subsequently won preselection for her seat at the 2010 election.[13] The Liberals stood a candidate in Riverina for the first time since 1998, but that had little impact on the result, with the Nationals recording a 3.6-point positive swing on a two-party-preferred basis.[14]

    Abbott and Turnbull Governments
    After the Coalition won the 2013 election, McCormack was made Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Finance, Mathias Cormann. He was later appointed Assistant Minister to the Deputy Prime Minister, Warren Truss, in September 2015.[15] Truss retired as leader of the National Party in February 2016, and McCormack publicly contemplated standing as his replacement.[16] He eventually chose not to run for the leadership, allowing Barnaby Joyce to win the position unopposed. He did stand for the deputy leadership (which Joyce had vacated), but lost to Senator Fiona Nash reportedly by only a single vote.[17] In the ministerial reshuffle resulting from Truss’s retirement, McCormack was made Assistant Minister for Defence under Marise Payne.[15]

    In July 2016, after the 2016 election, McCormack was appointed Minister for Small Business. In that capacity, he was responsible for the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), which conducted the 2016 national census and the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey during his tenure.[18][19] He opposes same-sex marriage, but voted in favour of the Marriage Amendment (Definition and Religious Freedoms) Act 2017 after promising to vote in line with the survey result in his constituency.[20]

    In December 2017, McCormack again contested the deputy leadership of the National Party, which had been made vacant as a result of Fiona Nash’s disqualification from parliament. He was defeated by Bridget McKenzie, once again losing by only one vote.[21] In the ministerial reshuffle that followed Nash’s departure, McCormack was made Minister for Defence Personnel, Minister for Veterans’ Affairs, and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for the Centenary of ANZAC, positions which had previously been held by Dan Tehan.[15] Following the resignation of Barnaby Joyce in February 2018, he announced that he would contest the resulting leadership election.[22]

    Littleproud
    David Kelly Littleproud (born 4 September 1976 in Chinchilla, Queensland) is an Australian politician who has been a member of the House of Representatives since the 2016 federal election, representing the Division of Maranoa. He is a member of the Liberal National Party of Queensland, and sits with the Nationals in federal parliament.

    Littleproud has served as the Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources since 20 December 2017 following a rearrangement of the Second Turnbull Ministry.[1] He was viewed as a potential candidate to replace Barnaby Joyce as National Party leader in February 2018.[2]

    Background and early career[edit]
    Littleproud was an agribusinessman before entering politics. His father Brian Littleproud was a National Party member of the Queensland Parliament and state government minister.[3]

    Political career[edit]
    Littleproud was elected to parliament in 2016, succeeding the previous member, retiring Bruce Scott.[3]

    In December 2017, Littleproud was one of only four members of the House of Representatives to vote against the Marriage Amendment (Definition and Religious Freedoms) Bill 2017 legalising same-sex marriage in Australia.[4]

    But seriously 123andbush, your son has done nothing wrong even if he did call the other kid names.
    The other kid started with the violence and that gives your son every right to finish it.
    If he was suspended so be it.
    Unsure what his rights were in this, I would have said calmly to the principle that I am seeking legal advice and that you have failed in your duty of care regarding my son’s welfare and punished him for having to defend himself from something you failed to protect him from.

    Use their shit against them.

  212. Fisky

    You could ask the principal what their policy on self-defence is exactly. Get it in writing. Then compare it to what the law actually says.

    123 teach your kid to fight like his ancestors expected him to.

    Unfortunately he lives in a bugmanocracy and so will need wiley wits to avoid institutional reprisal for not laying down to the aggressor (as the bugman proudly did in school).

    That’s where the real life lesson is taught: how to navigate the psycopathic world of gamma-male designed and operated administrative systems and institutions.

    Violent antifa thugs have to be restrained by police to stop them attacking anti-rape protestors in Germany. Antifa should be completely banned and its members brutally repressed.

    For a principal to punish both kids when he has video evidence of who threw the first punch is a shocking , despicable act.
    It sends all the wrong messages to the punks who don’t give a shit if they’re suspended to stuff up the good kids lives.

    Italian far-right leader bound and beaten by anti-fascist activists

    A far-right leader was bound and beaten by left-wing extremists in Italy.

    Massimo Ursino, a prominent member of the anti-immigration Forza Nuova group, was attacked in Palermo and required hospital treatment.

    His balaclava-clad assailants bound his hands and feet with parcel tape, The Local reported, and the beating left him with head and facial injuries.

    They pounced as Mr Ursino left a supermarket in central Palermo, in Sicily.

    An anonymous claim of responsibility said the attack was “a demonstration of the fact that in Palermo there are people who have no fear of fighting fascism”.

    OPINION
    Cutting payroll taxes will create more jobs than Turnbull’s plan

    Pauline Hanson
    The Australian
    12:00AM February 26, 2018

    One Nation will not be supporting the passage of the Treasury Laws Amendment (Enterprise Tax Plan No. 2) Bill 2017, which contains the government’s plan to reduce the tax rate for the big end of town from 30 per cent to 25 per cent in nine years.

    My decision not to support the legislation flows from asking what the companies do with the ­additional cash and who will benefit the most.

    I listened to the CEOs of our most successful companies, including Orica’s Alberto Calderon, who says tax cuts alone will not be enough to encourage further private investment. I listened to Australians who own shares in these companies. I listened to everyone who gave me their opinion directly or indirectly and it is clear that expert opinion is divided on the benefits of joining the global race to the bottom for company tax rates.

    No one knows what companies will do with the additional cash if the legislation becomes law. Companies could pay down debt, ­increase shareholder returns (through increased dividends or share buybacks), lower prices or a combination of any of these.

    132andBush, I’d be asking the principal why he failed in his duty of care to protect your son from being assaulted and what he plans to do about his responsibility for providing a safe environment for your son’s education and what steps will he be taking to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

    Years ago on this blog we had the argument, and it was quite rugged at times regarding the left getting to push Hitler and the Nazis over to our side with their lying propaganda, and many would just rather deny we were right wing and dance around it claiming we were not right wing or the left and right thing was irrelevant.
    Pure capitulation.
    Those same people must now realise the error of their ways.
    The left didn’t care if we believed it as long as their dumb violent followers did.

    We should have called it out for what it was years ago and attacked constantly reminding them that the Nazis were socialist and their people.
    Look what we are dealing with today because of it.
    The slackest thing our side of politics ever did, was to capitulate on this ,and now we are paying for it big time.

    Baldrick and struth are correct Do the “hurt face/tilty head” in the principal’s office. View the video. “Well my son may have called him a dickhead, but surely nothing justifies violence? He threw the first punch, my son, normally such a peaceful child, in fear and panic defended himself.” Ask the school’s policy on self defense. Threaten to take the matter to the Minister.

    Then corner the father in the pub car-park one Friday night, and tear his ears off. Always escalate.

    This has been going on for 20 years struth, it was just coming in when I was in high school. It’s how they keep the normies kids (who feel they have much to lose) in line by empowering bullies (who have little to lose).

    So the normies know if they fight back against a retard tough kid, under zero tolerance for violence policies they’re fucked so they learn to behave in ways that don’t attract the attention of the tough retard kids and if they do they learn to “de-escalate” (beg for mercy, act passively, etc) and of utmost supreme importance to “go tell a teacher”, aka to beg them for help.

    Coincidentally those behaviour patterns that students learn so they can navigate the real world result of bugocratic policies are the exact same behaviours that administrations want to see and create in the student body.

    That’s just a coincidence though, academic system and its bugman overlords wouldn’t be using thugs to shape general collective behaviour like they do in prisons or anything.

    It was bad enough when I went to school.
    I vaguely remember being in a maths class and the teacher asking who would vote Liberal or Labor if we could vote .
    I was the only one who put my hand up for the libs (back in those days) and the teacher delighted in letting all the other kids jeer and carry on at me.
    I remember even then as about 14 years old, just how disgusted I was with this.
    It only strengthened my resolve.

    The education system is appalling and how it was when my kid went through it was disgraceful and he is now 32.

    I know it has been going on for a while, but it’s still a despicable act by the principle no matter how long it has been going for.

    It all starts in our schools.

    INDIGENOUS
    Indigenous activists warn of protests at Commonwealth Game

    Richard Ferguson
    The Australian
    12:00AM February 26, 2018

    The leader of a militant Aboriginal group targeting the Commonwealth Games has warned that young activists could resort to terrorism in pursuit of their goals.

    Brisbane activist Wayne Wharton said Malcolm Turnbull’s ­intransigence on indigenous issues from Australia Day to the Uluru Statement was pushing some protesters to consider more radical and, potentially, violent tactics.

    “Malcolm Turnbull’s statements in the past three weeks are close to inciting (the use of) guns and (Aboriginal activists) taking up terrorism,” he said. “Some of our young people are not far off it with the things he’s said.”

    Mr Wharton said he would not promise that protests at the Games on the Gold Coast in April would remain peaceful.

    “If a policeman or a white racist comes for me, I am taking justice into my own hands,” he said. “I’m not afraid of jail … we won’t go near innocent people but there’s no ­justice in the white system and we need to stand up.”

    Mr Wharton’s statements leave a spectre of violence over the Games, which are already expecting large-scale protests.

    One group involved in a campsite being set up outside the Games complex by Mr Wharton is the Warriors of the Aboriginal ­Resistance who previously have vowed to “burn Australia to the ­f..king ground”.

    Mr Wharton is the leader of the Brisbane Aboriginal-Sovereign Embassy, a radical group that ­advocates the decolonisation of Australia. His previous activities include burning effigies of mainstream indigenous leaders Noel Pearson, Warren Mundine and Marcia Langton.

    From the Oz. Is it, or is it not, a crime to incite terrorist acts, in Australia?

    It’s their money, but sure the government knows how to spend it so much betterer.

    I bet Pauline asks for her change in fifty cent pieces when she hears that the Aussie dollar is down.

    Liam was an obnoxious little brat that terrorised my young bloke’s after school care facility. Both young blokes were 12. One day Liam belted my young bloke in the guts while he was having a drink from the bubbler – and not for the first time.

    A left and right from my bloke left Liam on the deck, and then crying to the staff. When I got there to pick him up, my bloke was wisely waiting for me, told me what happened and that the staff wanted to see me. So I went into the office.

    ‘James was involved in a fight,’ they said.
    ‘I know. I also know the circumstances.’

    ‘The circumstances don’t matter. Violence is not acceptable in this facility.’
    ‘Well, yes it is. Any person is entitled to use reasonable and proportionate force to defend him or herself and their property from another. Also, as this other kid is 12 he is over the criminal age of responsibility, and can therefore be charged with assault. An assault that occurred on the grounds of this facility, and as this kid is a documented serial offender it would occur to me that the staff have an additional duty of care to protect the other kids from this little mongrel.

    ‘I’ve also taught my kid to box, as Liam found out this afternoon. Any further assaults on my child will be met with the same proportionate response, and I will take legal action against the child and consider my options in relation to this facility and its staff. Are there any questions?’

    ‘Ummmm….. not at this stage.’
    ‘Good. See you tomorrow.’

    Not one iota of further trouble occurred. Staff have to take some responsibility. They’re paid to do so. It’s not a free-for-all.

  237. struth

    Good onya Knuckle dragger.
    Same response I would have used, as you can see above.
    I think we’ve sorted it out for you 123andbush.

    We should start up a Dear Catallaxy page.

  238. Knuckle Dragger

    Mr Wharton from Brisbane, who favours decolonisation, apparently doesn’t understand just what that will entail – ie, at the first opportunity he will be speared and thrown into the Brisbane River by the bigger and stronger tribe that lives next door.

    Poor old Dtarneen will be dragged kicking and screaming to WA and thrown through a hole into a cave to die. But hey, if that’s what they want….

  239. struth

    And I also say that the system uses parents as a cop out.

    We’re under such stress, we can’t discipline kids, the parents go ballistic if we do, blah blah.
    That can easily be solved by reading the riot act to the parents on sign up.
    This school does this, and expects this.
    We will not tolerate this, and that blah blah.
    Parents sign agreement or f off to another school.
    School discipline is out the window because of education bureaucrats Marxist policy, not parents who end up bursting into schools and principles raging about issues that should never have got to the situation in the first place.

    You wonder why teacher’s unions don’t stand up for the rights of individual teachers to be able to exercise discipline and actually in many cases supply a safe working environment for teachers by doing so, and when you note that they don’t, then you know their Marxist agenda comes way before the teachers they are meant to represent.
