Read the Herald Sun Story here, then read the reader comments for an insight into how stupid people are. Short story is this. Speed camera has snapped some guy's car for speeding. They've hit him up for the fine and the points, yet can't suspend his licence 'cos they can't prove it was him, and he won't/can't name who the driver is. There's a mass of comments calling for the crushing of said drivers car, calling him a murderer ('cos if you speed you're a murderer), to people crying for the removal of the need for the basic legal premise of the "burden of proof" for traffic offences, also helped along by the Herald Sun referring to the "burden of proof" as a "legal loophole", which the Vic Government is apparently rushing to close with the cavalry lead by Comrade Pallas. Seriously, what the f*ck is up with people? Is the mass populace so utterly stupid that they actually want the basic principle of the "burden of proof" removed from them? As one of the comments states, what if someone spots your car of the same make and model and colour in the parking lot, takes a note of your plates, and fakes up a set and goes speeding getting snapped by every speed camera along the way? Heck, what if you honestly don't know who the driver was, but know for sure it wasn't you, and so ask for assistance/proof from the police as to who it might have been? It really makes me angry and sad to think that people are so f*cking stupid to call for the removal of their basic rights. Makes me want to have the laws passed, so I can steal their plates, hire a rental car of the same make, model, and colour, and go speeding, put the plates back on their car, and then see how much they like it when the legal burden of proof has been removed from the legal system. It's f*cked. Totally f*cked.
