Sam John Miller blew 0.137 when stopped by police in Morrison Street on Hobart's waterfront at 2:15am in October last year.
In court Miller pleaded guilty to driving a motor vehicle while exceeding the prescribed alcohol limit, prohibited behaviour and using abusive language to police. The court heard Miller got out of his van when his dog began barking and becoming aggressive towards one of the officers who had intercepted him. The prosecutor said as Miller was out of his van and approaching police he was asked if he had anything in his pockets. Miller responded by removing his pants, turning his back to police, and exposing his buttocks.
The court heard Miller also invited officers to "check up there".
Steven Chopping told the court when officers had asked Miller if he had anything in his pockets, he'd "put two and two together and got 111" and thought he was about to be strip-searched.(He should have told the court he was a Maori and a 'brown arse' is a culturally historic sign of esteem and respect. She may well have believed him.)
Unimpressed, the judge threw the book at him.
De León, the current Senate president pro tempore, told the state Senate Public Safety Committee that half of his family could be rounded up by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents and deported because they are living in the U.S. illegally, and criminally.“I can tell you, half of my family would be eligible for deportation under the executive order, because they got a false Social Security card, they got a false identification, they got a false driver’s license prior to us passing AB 60, they got a false green card,” De León said.
Wall Street Journal Editor in Chief Gerard Baker on Monday aggressively defended the newspaper against criticism that its reporting on President Donald Trump has been soft, saying the coverage has aimed to hold the new administration accountable without becoming “oppositional.”.......
..........Monday’s event came after multiple media reports, citing unnamed news employees, described internal rancor at the Journal over its approach to covering the Trump administration under Mr. Baker’s leadership.
Mr. Baker said he has found it “irritating” to read critiques of the Journal’s coverage of Mr. Trump. He rattled off a string of Journal exclusives and in-depth articles as evidence of the paper’s aggressive coverage, including reporting on the president’s business conflicts and foreign dealings and the recent controversy surrounding Michael Flynn, his national security adviser.
“Don’t let anyone tell you our reporting on Donald Trump has been soft,” he said. “It’s been extremely tough.” Referring to the notion that the Journal has been timid, he said, “you might even call it fake news.”
I've just read your lousy review of Margaret's concert. I've come to the conclusion that you are an "eight ulcer man on four ulcer pay."It seems to me that you are a frustrated old man who wishes he could have been successful. When you write such poppy-cock as was in the back section of the paper you work for it shows conclusively that you're off the beam and at least four of your ulcers are at work.Some day I hope to meet you. When that happens you'll need a new nose, a lot of beefsteak for black eyes, and perhaps a supporter below!Pegler, a gutter snipe, is a gentleman alongside you. I hope you'll accept that statement as a worse insult than a reflection on your ancestry.H.S.T.
