A new recruit for the Alexander Maconochie Resort

Three shining lights of Canberra have been dispensed with for a period of time, unfortunately not long enough, for their spree of armed burglaries.

The leading luminary of the trio, William John Callan, 19, was caught in part due to his posing on his unsecured Facebook page, showing him posing next to the revolver used in a robbery.

Once again however the courts feel that these low lifes don’t need to take responsibility for their actions.

“Supreme Court Justice John Burns sentenced Callan to five years jail, but he will be eligible for parole in June 2014. In sentencing Callan, Justice Burns noted the boy’s good criminal record, his guilty plea, and the continuing support from his family. He said Callan had ”reasonable prospects” for rehabilitation.”

A couple of points on Justice Burn’s observations :

‘the boy’ : umm…he’s actually a man.

‘Good criminal record’ : I suppose we can interpret that in a couple of ways.

‘his guilty plea’: umm…he was caught red-handed breaking into the Burns Club by a police sting.

‘ the continuing support from his family’: let’s hope this acorn fell a long way from the tree.

‘reasonable prospects for rehabilitation’: read – this will be a name to watch for years to come.

Oh well, at least the good citizens of Canberra can now sleep secure for a couple of years whilst Mr Callan enjoys the arduous life inside a Canberra prison…sorry, we’re not allowed to call it a prison – that would upset the residents too much…the Alexander Maconochie Centre.

Pretty boy. Will be well recieved in gaol.

I`m pretty sure that he`ll be doing all the receiving

Maybe he should take some Barry White cds with him, just to get the mood right? At least with those ears, the boys will have something to hold onto when the force feed him at bit of sasauge!

What is it with people on this site indulging so often in rape fantasies?

Mongrel dogs. Savage and stupid, and certainly dangerous enough to kill some unsuspecting checkout operator. Vain and boastful with it, too. What a package. I wonder what they would’ve done with the cable ties at the Burns club if they hadn’t been caught?

On the farms I was familiar with as a youngster, if one of the working dogs turned out to be savage and stupid and dangerous then you’d just shrug and shoot it.

So how many goes do you get at a criminal record before it is slightly not so good?

As for Burns being an improvement onTezza this sentence would suggest otherwise.

At least burns is doing better than that pathetic Higgins.

Some douche gets stabby on two people:

Chief Justice Higgins said the attack was ”out of character” for Flowers, pointing to his relatively clean criminal record.

Relatively clean criminal record…so not a clean record then

The douche has been kicked out of a rehab facility so terry orders him to go back, are they under any obligation to take him back its not even in terry’s jurisdiction.

Posing on f’book with a key piece of evidence? Hmm yet another bright spark,who not content with his haul,apparently wanted notoriety without considering the consequences.He’s going to need to lift his game if he wants to emulate Mully,or Paul Lill who reportedly broke into well over a hundred homes in a three month period to feed his heroin habit in mid 2000.
