1. School fire in Florey:

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to a suspicious fire at St Francis Xavier College in Florey early this morning (Friday 28 May).

About 3.35am, police were called to the premises following reports from the ACT Fire Brigade of numerous fires on the college grounds. ACT Fire Brigade attended and extinguished the fires prior to police arrival.

The fires were located in wheelie bins, a rubbish hopper and at two rear external doors. The cost of the damage is yet to be determined.

Police are viewing CCTV footage to identify any possible offenders. Police are urging anyone who may have witnessed the incident, or saw any suspicious activity in the Florey area to contact Crime Stoppers.

ACT Policing has arrested a 15-year-old male over the robbery at the IGA supermarket in Lyons on Wednesday 26 May.

He’s 15 and he’s already breaching bail and committing armed robbery??? Man, I don’t recall kids being even close to this bad when I was 15 – and I’d like to think I knew most of the horrible sorts around the Weston Creek area in the early to mid 90’s.

Plenty of minor crimes being committed by kids this age around then, but nothing quite this serious.

If I ever got caught doing anything, it was the wrath of my father, rather than that of any police or court, that I feared most. I’d like to think that’s what this kid is lacking – strong parenting and a healthy fear of repercuassion.

krats – too just basically means as well/also. In this case ‘to’ is correct because you are questioning the point of where it ends not agreeing or adding on.

I don’t know that answer though, it’s pretty bad out there.

Oops I guess ‘too’ could also mean something else when applied to say ‘too many puppies’ (great song). Which I don’t even know how to explain. Anyone?

Or I could just stop going off topic. Sorry..

He’s one of many breaching bail at that age (or about that age).
