Bloody Americans

A NSW magistrate thinks road rage is caused by watching American TV shows:

Deputy Chief Magistrate Paul Cloran said aggrieved motorists who turned to violence displayed the sort of vigilante-style justice espoused by such shows.

"This is a matter where you can say . . . people watch too much American television," Mr Cloran said.

"If you don't like what people say, you can hit them."
Obviously, the simple minded magistrate doesn't watch many of our 'quality' home grown shows which are equally packed with punches.

Instead, seeking an easy answer to a complex problem of which the magistracy is a part, he plays Australia's most popular race card, blaming Americans for the 65-year-old Aussie aggressor's lack of self control.

Heck, why not go all the way and blame the Jews too? Players from the Ocean Grove Football Club do.
