ok now that i have your attention, it has become a concern of mine that over the past few months there has been a rather big knee jerk reaction to what (jo public) call 'Hoons' which there are some of no doubt but the over all car enthusist community.
last night saturday 14th was the breaking point for myself, the crackdown on broardwater carpark was insane and out of line by the police task force, there were arrogant over the top and heavy handed police sent to butcher the last remaining place that we had to show off our cars and i mean that seriously, it was well away from residential areas and people have an unritten respect law not to draw unnessary attention to the carpark, hell my parents have even come down with me on a night to watch all the goings on and there is NOTING out of line that goes on in that carpark i mean there are cameras for gods sake and we want respect but it seems like there is no logic with state federal and local government and those who police the laws.
now instead of getting angry and saying how bad it is, maybe its time to take a steep in the right direction, how do the police get the message out to the public and bung on their tactics that we are all hoons?? MEDIA, its the 21st centery we can beat these ppl and dont need to take court action as that will only cause them to spend more of my hard earnt tax dollars to defend themselves with 8 lawyers. I am as of tonight sending a letter to my local member, with follow ups to state and then federal levels with my concerns on the matter, im getting a petition signed by as many people as i can to get support at this, the ball has already started to roll in Queensland, people arnt going to put up with this, im also writing to dick johnson and peter brock as they to support car enthusists and the need for a track between brisbane and the gold coast and a lacks in laws for car enthusists, but say at the same time if you provide this system than you are more than ok to go after street racers if they dont use the facilities that are available to them becasue at the moment we have nothing and honnestly thats not good enough.
there are enough people to make this happen so how about it email me : firstname.lastname@example.org
, or post here your support and who you are, i want to combat this and the more people write to the news papers and tv stations with letters of support and with the correct wording, as in not **** ALL COPS etc we may just win this battle as it is far from over and i promise that.....
so whos with me? lets nail these bastards in the right way with the right tact:)
