An Australian court has issued a blunt warning about the sexual predators a young driver faces in jail if he does not stop speeding, as authorities struggle to stop teenagers street racing.
"You'll find big, ugly, hairy strong men (in jail) who've got faces only a mother could love that will pay a lot of attention to you -- and your anatomy," said Magistrate Brian Maloney.
The 19-year-old male appeared in Sydney's Downing Center Court on Monday charged with driving without a license, failing to stop at a police alcohol check point and driving dangerously.
It was his third time before the courts for driving offences, prompting the magistrate's warning he would be jailed next time.
Maloney barred the teenager from driving until 2013, placed him on a 12-month good behavior bond and ordered him to do 150 hours of community work.
Breaching any of these conditions would see the teenager jailed where he would "shower with the gorillas in the mist down at Long Bay jail," said Maloney, his comments confirmed by the court on Tuesday.
"Out of control" was the frontpage headline in Sydney's The Daily Telegraph newspaper on Tuesday for a story on four teenagers either booked for street racing, speeding, driving without a license or crashing their car and killing a passenger.
The newspaper's editorial backed the magistrate's warning of life behind bars, saying his comments were "a vision in clarity" and gave the teenager "a reality check of his future."
"We can only hope this strategy helps. Hope it ends the slaughter of young innocents on the roads through stupidity...," said the Telegraph. "Road safety has become a war zone and any tactics are permissible..."
Police in the southern state of Victoria impounded 42 cars in the past six days after drivers were caught speeding.

"Your a very bad person"
Odd. Sounds like a threat. The lad would be justified in taking pre-emptive action against the so-called “authorities” in this case.

but then he wiped his eyes and
said, "Um, well, really?"
Sounds like cruel and unusual punishment to me; but this is Australia.
Barney Frank and Ben Burch would be excited at the prospect!
The state has a responsibility to keep sexual abuse from happening in Prisions, not advertise it.
But I do think that even a jailbird has a right not to be raped in their cell. Getting a potentially fatal disease forced on them is not a suitable punishment for a DWI or even a burglary.
If the violent rapist types cannot be sent to separate prisons, they need to be housed together in separate cells so at least they rape and kill each other, not some non-violent dope peddler.
One size fits all incarceration policies are just as devilish as one size fits all government health care.
Now every homosexual who can’t find a date is going to be drving dangerously. This could be bigger than e-harmony.
Now that’s what I call being scared straight!
No wonder Michelle Rodiguez had 3 DUIs in just as many months...
A federal PMITA prison?
Bingo ... Instead of wasting money on TV etc., spend it on building appropriately secure facilities for the violent perverts.
Some criminals need to be removed from society at large. Others need to be removed from any contact with the rest of humanity.
I think the judge’s point (and I’ve made it myself from the bench) is that this punk thinks there are no consequences to his actions. He needs to understand that jail is a very bad place filled with a number of very bad people, and that if just obeying the law like grownups should isn’t sufficient incentive, then perhaps the possibility of getting gang raped when the guards’ backs are turned might get him to think about modifying the behavior that threatens to send him to the hoosegow.
Of course I'm in favor of eliminating jails entirely.
Get rid of all victimless crimes and reduce all sentences to two punishments: 40 lashes or crucifixion. 40 lashes for everything other than murder or homicide and two railroad ties and some nails along the side of the nearest highway for anyone who takes a life or steals over $10,000.
Jurisprudence has been straight downhill since Tiberius Caesar
Assault, threatening that violence will be done to someone, is a crime. The ends do not justify the means, and that includes threatening or bluffing about violence.
We used to have a very cost effective solution to do exactly that.
There wouldn't be 150 people left in the Senate and the House combined.
Just a reminder that some people in jail are there because they cannot make bond, even a low bond may be too much for a poor person. They have not been convicted of any crime, they do not deserve being sexually abused, beaten (by staff or inmates) or infected with AIDS. They are not ‘jailbirds.’
I’m far from a bleeding heart when it comes to criminals - personally, I’d like to see public executions on pay-per-view, but I also like to wait until there’s been an actual conviction before I start throwing people to the lions.
And the problem with that is?.....
