Armoured rescue vehicle deployed at the Tent Embassy

By johnboy - 10 January 2012 74

ACT Policing apprehended a 28-year-old man following negotiated surrender at the Aboriginal Tent Embassy last night (Monday, January 10).

Around 11.30pm police attended the tent embassy after a man and a woman flagged down AFP Protective Services Officers following an alleged assault and theft.

Witnesses said a man at the site threatened to shoot them. Police attended and set up a cordon around the man’s caravan.

ACT Policing’s Negotiators attended along with Specialist Response and Security members who, using the Armoured Rescue vehicle, negotiated the alleged offender’s surrender.

The offender allowed police to search his residence where they located items believed to have been taken in the theft and used in the alleged assault.

The man was arrested, taken to the ACT Watch House and later released on conditional Watch House bail.

Investigations are continuing.

Anyone who may be able to assist with the investigation is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

Either we’re all allowed to camp there, or no one is.

Couldn’t agree more. Imagine my outrage when I was told I was not allowed to sleep at the American Embassy, I mean if foreigners are allowed to sleep in the palatial building why, as a ‘Troo Aussie’ TM, aren’t I. Bloody unAustralian it is.

+1 – Pitch your tent at the base of Uluru and see how long you last!

The stupidity in your post made it hard to understand your point. So I gave up trying.

If you couldn’t understand the point, I have given you too much credit in the past.

It’ll be interesting to find out if the people who were mugged were tourists or just walking by, or involved in some way with the squatters. There’s been reports of threatening behaviour by the squatters there over the years. How I wish the government would stop this bending over backwards crap and kick them out. The whole thing is so stupid.

Sure they do Chewy. You just have to negotiate and have some back bone. Your arguing reverse privilege/######. Lame.

Whats stopping you

The Police.

Haven’t you been watching the Occupy protests?

The majority of the population don’t get to expropriate public land.

Whats stopping you, off you go, take your tent. Wouldn’t want you to feel left out.

Do they even get any official visits there?

…did they ever?

If not, bulldoze it.

Surely it is time to clear the area and ban camping there (for all people regardless of their race).
