2 dead, many questions

Joe Canberran 8 November 2007 24

Not much info online as yet but the ABC, news.com and smh all have snippets of info on a man found shot dead in his front lawn of a residence in Ern Florence Crescent in Theodore about 3pm today.

Police then attended a property in the township of Michelago locating another deceased male, also from a gunshot wound.

Regardless of the circumstances condolences to the families.

You’re only allowed to be a vigilante if you have super-powers, or if you’re a closet who’s parents were murdered.
That’s the rule.

I once formed vigilante group to stomp out myself. It failed.. I think I hesitated at the last moment. It would have been cool though.. I would have been villian to millions and martyr to the same millions.

“We as citizens need to stand up and stomp this out. A vigilante group seems to be in order.”

What else was I supposed to reply to? KNOB!

“The guy that was shot dead is some relation to the g/f of a guy at work.”

Welcome to Canberra, everyone here is 6 degrees divided by 2. We’re more Tasmania than Tasmania.

DMD – I was not being serious. Do you really think I was going to gather up some people and roam the street looking to fulfil justice? However I will bite, if someone was going to commit a crime in a suburb, wheter is was something simple as stealing a car, breaking and entering or the more sinister, carrying a shotgun type crimes… Do you think they would think twice about doing it if they knew that there was a bunch of people looking after their neighbourhoods? People that were looking to take the law into their own hands and werent afraid to do it. I think said criminals would think twice and more than likely stop the crime all together. If you think otherwise then you are the KNOB!

Possibly, I had heard of the accident on the radio around the time of the Theodore incident.

The guy that was shot dead is some relation to the g/f of a guy at work. Funeral is Thursday.

Nyssa – car accident you say, there were no cars there, maybe they had been towed already?

Drugs are bad RAGD mmm.

This has been going on for 40+ years here in the ACT.. it goes on all the time, why u dont hear about it.. if they can keep it quiet they will.

RAGD, you’re a knob. How is a vigilante group going to stomp out crimes like these? Become relationship police?

The theodore man was a nice man feel sorry for his son yes.

imo i think there was a bit more than a girl but who knows.

Sorry to see them go this way.

I was acquainted with the perp, in a business sense.
Notwithstanding the fairly damning opinions expressed in the SMH, I always found him a gentleman, quiet, well spoken and polite.
This is a very sad occurence. My sympathies to the families.

‘that he “allegedly” had a thing against women.’

seems to me that he had a thing against people who were lying on top of his women. (allegedly)

You have got to feel for the son of the victim and his girlfriend. it must of been horrible if they were there at the time.

nyssa76 nyssa76 3:04 pm 09 Nov 07

SMH reported that the perp was not a well liked man in his community and that he “allegedly” had a thing against women.

Here I am to answer your questions….

The male who was murdered had recently gotten into a relationship with the suspects wife.
The suspect was pretty furious that his wife left him for the other bloke so he drove to the home at Ern Florence and shot the man…

Obviously then drove home thought about what had happened and comitted suicide.

The son of the victim was at home at the time of the offence with his girlfriend.

… but they lack any sort of motivation, and thus just end up angry at themselves.

Why not get the emo’s to do it? They’re angry enough.

What is happening to Canberra these days? Used to be a nice clean , fairly safe city to live. Now people getting shot outside their houses, girls being abducted from the street and molested.

We as citizens need to stand up and stomp this out. A vigilante group seems to be in order.

Felix, apparently there had been a car accident on the corner of Bargang and Jabbanunga.

I used to live on that street. Some shady characters around there. Never saw anything like that happening in bloody THEODORE though.
