I hope Mick Keelty is remembered for this

I find the footage of the former head of the AFP and co-goon Michael Phelan in Bali trying to make it all better for Scott Rush repellant.  But still some good could come of it.  There is much to remember Keelty by, not least his oversight of the pinching of terrorist mastermind Mohammed Haneef.

There is also this

Our environmental scanning tells us that even with some of the cloning of human beings – not necessarily in Australia but in those countries that are going to allow it – you could have potentially a cloned part-person, part-robot,” he said.

“You could (also) have technology acting at the direction of a human being, but the human being being distanced considerably from the actual crime scene.”

Mr Keelty said scams had sprung up in online virtual worlds such as Second Life, where people can spend real money via credit cards to buy products such as virtual real estate and gifts.

“Policing that is going to be quite difficult,” he said.

And yet, when future generations look back on his opus, I hope the image which endures is that of this former grand ringmaster in his mock-Batik outfit with its misguided ingratiation, painting in fine detail the pinnacle of his own past incompetence and acquiescence, demanding the world acknowledge his belated good intentions.

One thought on “I hope Mick Keelty is remembered for this

  1. I’m not entirely sure what the suggestion is here. There is a lot of irrelevance thrown in.

    Is it that punishment should be meted out in the territory with the stronger / lesser punishment? (I’d say it should be carried out in the jurisdiction where the crime was committed. If crimes were committed in multiple jurisdictions, finders keepers works well as a starting point.)

    Is it that we should / shouldn’t have a death penalty here? (Of course we should.)

    Or is it just that the AFP got themselves a bit twisted up recently…?
