The Preacher was only getting a bit stabby, didn’t mean to kill anyone

Last July we reported on a stabbing in Theo’s at Ainslie Shops by a man known to locals as “The Preacher”.

Now the ABC reports that former RAAF employee Isa Islam has offered the novel defence of saying he was just having a bit of a stab and didn’t mean to kill anyone:

Islam told the court he believed the man knew who had been breaking into his Ainslie Village room and vandalising his belongings.

He said after his neighbour refused to talk to him he just snapped and started stabbing him.

But he said he certainly did not mean to kill him, saying if he had wanted to he could have cut his throat.

We’ll have to see how he goes with that when the verdict comes down next year.

Are you suggesting he’s related to Cat Stevens?

No, you needn’t go on you rascist.

I’ve seen this guy at a number of different locations doing his preaching thing with his headphones on. He always looked so harmless. Just your regular garden variety nutter. I guess you never know what the voices are telling them to do. I hope he gets some help.

That’s what happens when people push me, I get all stabby!

Seriously though, where’s the evidence of his RAAF history? Not any freaks like that in my RAAF, Army perhaps or as I suspect, he used to be a Pube.

Admitting to stabbing someone? Gotta be worth a few weekends home detention in the ACT.

But if he’s homeless? Just let him go then.

Is it just me or does the nick name ‘stabby’ sound kinda cute. Like it should be a cartoon.
