I can't believe, after all these years, that some guys STILL take the bait that 2SD dangles out there  :eek7:

And when Swannie 685 hangs on Dan's coattails, then even more ou's take the bait  :imaposer:


He's a TROLL guys, stop feeding him  :deal:

You realise why guys like yourself, in spite of little warnings like this, keep on feeding me?  Because, despite you calling me a troll, and accuse me of baiting, I bait with
intelligence, and will often offer argument you cannot refute.

You must find it so frustrating. :pot:

Yip, I agree Dan, you do bait with more quasi-intelligence and semi-sound reasoning than most trolls. You are a trolling-master  :thumleft:  :imaposer:

Thank you Sir, you are gracious, I was expecting a snide remark. [ upon which I was going to remark how you cannot help but take the bait. But you countered cleverly] :thumleft:

Dan, do you understand what the Law, and Rule of Law are?
Do you understand why laws should be enforced to allow a stable society ( not always a "good" society, but that would depend upon the laws that are in force ) to exist?

Do you, personally, believe that laws must be enforced?
Clinicians can contact the clinicians' hotline number on 0800 111 131 (for doctors only); and, in addition to 0800 029 999, the public can also contact the public hotline number on 0800 111 132. These lines all operate 24 hours a day.

I absolutely believe in a society where laws are enforced, in a non nanny-state way, iow do not have a lot of "health and safety" type laws.
If only our laws have been enforced, there would have been no beggar in that intersection, and a possibly law-abiding citizen would not have been driven to an extreme act.
If only the SAPS could control violent crime, then drivers would not have to break laws by not stopping at intersections in certain areas at night.

This, Geriatrics, is my problem with these situations, if the enforcers start turning a blind eye to "minor" law-breakers, big crooks take heart at this "soft stance" by enforcers.
Eventually law-abiding citizens have to adapt their take on law to fit in with this negatively changing society. Vicious and inevitable cycle.

I could not have said this better.
It means that we are in total agreement about enforcing the Law ( even if it means waking the investigating officer up at times ).
That is why the biker has to be found and charged, with the Court deciding whether he is a criminal or not.
Hit and run is a serious crime, and correctly carries severe penalties for those who do it.
Bikers are at particular risk and should be demanding that all occurrences are properly investigated and the perpetrators charged.

The equally important need to arrest and charge pedestrians who crowd intersections is not part of this thread. If anyone wants to start a new thread about this I would agree that they should face the Law since they do endanger all of us.

I think the beggar watched too much soccer lately, he was most likely not that badly hurt.

Geriatrics, yes, I will concede that I actually do believe that the rider should be brought to book, and that he should have stopped at the scene. My believe is however so skewed
by how our laws are interpreted and applied, like anyone else, that nothing is black and white anymore.[for as much as everything seems to be black and white currently :imaposer:]

The rider must be brought to book, but only because he was on a GS. :peepwall: :peepwall: :pot: :pot: :lol8:

If the cops arrest every beggar at the traffic lights over the next 48 hours and charge them then I'll own up to flattening this one. But I won't admit to riding a GS.

Even the cops won't blame you for the last omission. :imaposer:

I sort of see him as devil's advocate in most cases.  This usually makes for more interesting,  albeit more heated discussions most of the time.   Maybe I am. just stupid?
