Canberra: Holiday Destination of Choice for Murderers.

By neanderthalsis - 25 February 2008 10

Not content with filling our courts with killers of the homegrown variety, we seem to import them too. We saw the young chap from Sydney kill his girlfriend at Gunghalin on New Years eve, now we have a South Australian man convicted for killing his girlfriends daughter (with a saucepan and walking stick) while visiting our fair city.

Is it the sunny weather and festive outlook that attracts these pillocks to our town?

What’s Your opinion?

Boy, Bill Bryson’s advertising slogan “Canberra – Why Wait For Death” isn’t so funny now, is it?

I support the nomination for the pool room as well.

Why do I never see new pool room comments though? We seem to have all these votes for new taglines, but nobody ever changes them.

Let’s start with this one mods!

The other side of the story:

Hearing about how he bashed the little girl in the sentencing today was pretty sickening. Basically he bashed her head in after beating her in the abdomen and knees as well. 🙁

I must admit murder was what first brought me to Canberra.

Actually I am in a position to know. The consensus amongst the crims is that Canberra is an excellent place to ply one’s trade. We are under policed and so the chance of initial detection is low, and our courts are well known for their excessive leniency both in matters of bail, and sentencing. Following the appointment of a new fair-dinkum magistrate to Queanbeyan in 2007, many of that city’s parasites moved across the border where they can operate with impunity.

According to Bludger’s link above the AFP has quite a few outstanding cold cases … must be something to do with Canberra’s winters.

I second the nomination, and support its candidacy.

The headline should be nominated for a Poolroom Guernsey.

Bludger 3:11 pm 25 Feb 08

At least someone was charged with the crime…

This is because the ACT sentencing laws are much more lenient than that of any other state or territory.
