A GERMAN backpacker accused of vandalising 10 Metro trains has been released on bail and ordered to stay away from the train operator’s property.
Peter James Lorenzen, 21, spent two nights behind bars after allegedly refusing to give police his residential address.

Magistrate Franz Holzer accepted the 21-year-old would unlikely receive any jail time if found guilty of the criminal damage charges, but said he was a flight risk without a stable residence.

This guy deserves to have the book thrown at him.  Damages public property and then leaves the country and thinks he is safe.  Only to find his way back here with the long arm of the law.

Yeah, that's going to stop him. Magistrate logic.

Once they have had their time in court, I do wish the authorities would just deport foreign criminals, even "petty" crims like this one and those Irish fraudsters who take money for house maintenance from little old ladies and never do the work.

I appreciate they have broken state laws and immigration is a Commonwealth responsibility, but all it would take is one mid ranking bureaucrat in the immigration department to decide to crack down on foreigners who break state laws and we would have a few less low life crims making life unpleasant for the rest of us.

It can be said that you should never expect Justice from the Justice System.
