He’s the hero we need, but not the hero we deserve. One bloke from Tamworth has cemented himself as a certified Australian legend after displaying bravery the likes of which the sleepy New South Wales town has never seen before.
Last Friday, armed only with an empty beer carton and an insatiable thirst for justice, our hero marched up to a police speed camera like he was taming a bull.
Just look at the fearlessness of this fella, without a single thought for his own safety he just charged up to the car and did what needed to be done. A true hero, if ever there was one.
I’m not sure what he used to cover up the camera, but the way he donned that empty carton makes him look like some sort of Robocop.
In Australia, we’re usually pretty good when it comes to helping out a fellow ‘Strayan. We already blink our lights if there’s a camera in order to help other drivers and everyone’s happy to share rolling papers in a club smoking area.
But this, this just raises the bar in how tenacious and brave we Aussies really are, this is what the Anzacs thought for, after all.
So salute to the bloke, you’ve done everyone on that street an incredible service that they won’t soon forget.
Someone get this man a beer, he bloody well deserves it.
