Arrest made in Death in Braddon case.

By johnboy 8 August 2011 56

A 17-year-old Canberra youth will face the ACT Childrens Court today (Monday, August 8. ) charged with the murder and aggravated robbery of a 27-year-old man in Braddon on Thursday (August 4).

The young man, from Canberra’s north, was taken into custody late on Saturday night (August 6) after ACT Policing had negotiated his surrender.

Police had executed a search warrant on a Turner residence during the early hours of Saturday morning. During this lengthy search, evidence was located which will form part of the brief of evidence.

A machete and a baseball bat were located which police will allege were the weapons used in the attack.

Police are still searching for a second person in relation to the murder.

Any members of the public who have not yet spoken to police and who may be able to provide information which could assist the investigation are 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.

I am seriously unsure whether to just laugh at this or run to the shops for a bag of popcorn! Where to start with this?!

If this is a serious post by turntabletreachery,what’s the betting he/she has a ‘2612’ tattoo?

I’ve been wondering what’s been going on with this one – I’m hoping the hate crime aspect of this one is actually exposed and discussed rather than being swept under the carpet. The boy’s parent’s attitudes to, and comments about, a certain broad ethnic group could do with an airing, especially as they belong to a notorious (alhtough dwindled) local sub-community.

Liang was an amazing person. He was a friendly, happy young man and meant a lot to many people. He would never have tried to hurt anyone or start any trouble. I dont understand how someone can take someone elses life. It makes me so angry that someone has taken his life. He will be missed by many. Rest In Peace Liang Zhao

It seems that you knew him. I am very sorry for your and his family/friends loss, of this young man especially over such senseless, mindless violence. I sincerely hope that justice is done and bring a small amount of closure for his family and friends. From what I hear in the media, the public helped greatly in progressing the investigation and commendation for that is well deserved.

I bet the alleged thug will be out of prison long before he reaches the age at which his victim died.

I don’t think it is right that juveniles charged with serious crimes be dealt with by the childrens’ court and their identity protected. Its reasonable in my opinion to give children the benefit of the doubt for one or two petty crimes, but once they commit serious or repeated offences, I don’t believe their youth deserves any special treatment in the justice system. If they commit big boy crimes they deserve big boy punishment.

SO agree!

15. He’s mentally retarded (difficult to dispute seeing brainiac took his murder weapons home with him).

Great work by the ACT Police – early arrest and weapons found.

Now for the Judiciary………………………..and what are the odds of one of these, or all of them, coming up?

1. He was a great bloke
2. He was drunk and didn’t know what he was doing
3. He doesn’t drink………ever.
4. He has never, ever taken drugs
5. He was molested as child
6. He was a good catholic boy just out taking the dogma for a walk when this happened.
7. He was molested as a teen
8. He had that knife, gun, as he found them and was taking them down to hand them in
9. He was molested as an adult
10. Okay, so he took a joint once…………..but he didn’t inhale.
11. Hmmm…….okay, so he molests adults and teens…………..but only once
12. Okay, so there was this other time……………………..maybe more often than that then…..
13. He’s a great bloke though

14. “He’s got his whole life ahead of him” (to commit more violent crimes)

Yeah you’re right, it does sound a bit harsh, especially if he claims of hurt feelings.

If he can aso claim mental health problems, and that daddy didn’t hug him enough, he’ll be given a bag of lollies and sent home.

Bastard! I have to pay for [i]my[/i] bags of snakes.

I suppose we should be somewhat thankful for murderers who take their murder weapons home with them.
