Why is that this thread has a reference to a previous EFC poster who committed suicide in the title? VERY POOR TASTE.

It’s intended to be a respectful acknowledgement.

I didn't realise Scott Thompson nearly got done on trafficking charges!? FMD.
Glad it's only possession. He was an okay player in his day, actually not as bad as most people say.

This rates right up there with some of the best false paradigm/emotional blackmail stunts that we usually get around here.

For the uninitiated........

What's a "Community Corrections Order".......??
Some or all of community work, drug programs, and urine testing.

He dodged a 5 year minimum sentence. Magnificent work.

Probably the finest rorting of the legal system, since John Elliot's squadron of Q.C's had Frank Vincent throw out the water wheel case, with 162 witnesses lined up in the corridor.

Its the newfangled version of community service.

At one level, I agree Bomber should not do jail. Very very few people if any should be in jail for any drug offence, and that includes heroin importers and ice cooks.

As long as alcohol and tobacco are legally available there's NO moral argument for banning stuff that legal in a medical context usually (opiates and ampgets) or less dangerous than booze (MDMA, coke).

BUT - if Sammy and Habib from Westmeadows were caught in exactly the same set up as Bomber and his coey, they'd be looking at closer to ten years inside than not.

Justice must be served regardless of social standing or ability to pay.

I think Sammy and Habib probably like to break into cars and have a wrap sheet as long as their arm.
I also think Sammy and Habib aren’t the low hanging fruit in an ongoing acic investigation.

No, what if Sammy and Habib were two 21 year old blokes, no major rap sheet, caught with all the same stuff?
