Nothing to be ashamed of,you were not in the back seat of the car,but as these people will find out with the high number of Aboriginal men in theI read this, and for a moment was ashamed to be an Australian.
What bothers me the most is that the Judge represented these people as being of good character. That's not justice I my book.
Doesn't have anything to do with being a proud aussie or not, this is simply a case of someone being an *ssh*le.
Everyone has one, every country has people like this, nationality is irrelevant.
It may have be an attack on Aborigines in this case but in reality it could be an attack on the vagrants and homeless anywhere in the world, if you read the papers it happens often, unfortunately.
So I am sorry that it happened but I am proud to be an Aussie because at least we took the trouble to uphold the rights of those attacked.
You've got to be kidding, right?why cant they be? it's not like it's their weekly routine.
anyone can make bad decisions under influence of alcohol
You've got to be kidding, right?
"Bad decisions under the influence of alcohol" would embrace telling your spouse that they're overweight, dancing on a table and breaking things, or perhaps making ill-advised calls to exes.
But people who are fundamentally good and have a bit too much alcohol don't suddenly decide to go and frighten and inflict violence on people minding their own business. Anybody who behaves violently when they drink, shouldn't drink. Alcohol is absolutely no excuse for this kind of behaviour.
I do agree with you; I'm still a proud Australian.I wouldn't let a few neanderthals, who will hopefully, if found guilty, will get there right wack, let me change the way I feel about my country, nationality.
Why would you assign so much influence over your feelings on your country to people who act and behave in an illegal, unethical manner. Those people don't represent the mainstream values or behaviours across the country.
