one law for them another for the rest of us

Eugene McGee is a lawyer. He got drunk, drove and killed a cyclist. He didn’t stop because he didn’t want to damage his career. He got fined $3100 and lost his licence for 12 months. The award for being an utter fucking wanker goes to Eugene McGee. A lingering, painful death by prostate cancer is the prize. The award for asshole-of-the-universe goes to the judge who handed down the sentence. The prize is drawn-out senility, Alzheimers, and permanent loss of bowel control

There’s a rally being held to protest against a recent decision in an Adelaide court, which saw lawyer Eugene McGee handed down a $3100 fine and 12 months loss of licence for hitting and killing cyclist Ian Humphreys whilst drink driving in his four wheel drive. Afraid that he might “damage his career”he didn’t stick around at the scene of the accident. When he was later apprehended by police, McGee was not breath tested or blood tested, even though he admitted to having had 4 or 5 glasses of wine and police admitted to having smelt alcohol on his breath. Two brothers who stopped to see if they could help at the accident scene claim that their statements to police have been changed, and are baffled as to why they were not called to give evidence in court despite claiming to have witnessed McGee driving erratically at speeds of up to 160kph, then speeding off after hitting the cyclist. A group called ‘Wheels of Justice’has formed in SA –they think it’s pretty lousy that it only costs $3000 to kill a cyclist and are holding a rally in Adelaide on the weekend; there is a concurrent action being held at Fed Square from 9:30am on Saturday 7th May. People who cycle and feel that their lives should be protected by the law are encouraged to bring their bikes and join the rally, which will travel to the steps of Parliament House –pedestrians also welcome.
