The law being an Ass

"...A Perth doctor is unable to recover his $A200,000 ($NZ250,245) Lamborghini after it was seized by police who caught his mechanic driving it at speeds up to 70km/h over the limit...

...Police Minister Rob Johnson said he sympathised with the owner but that the law acted as a strong deterrent to hoons.

"I have some sympathy for him but it's a situation that he has to take up with the garage owner," Mr Johnson said on Thursday.

"It's not something that I'm prepared to change the law for, simply because somebody who owns a Lamborghini does not have that car for 28 days..."

Do I detect a hint of auto envy here?

A spot of- 'ha-ha- you rich bastard?

A bit of the old 'tall poppy syndrome'?

Because I sure as hell can't think of any other reason for not releasing his car!

'To be completely fair' my arse!

This and other traffic 'safety' bollocks is doing irreparable harm to the respect the public (mostly) once had for ther police.

So this is must be what the powers-that-be want

Because it's obvious to anyone with an IQ over about 80...
