Death in Kingston – UPDATED

By johnboy - 6 December 2006 44

Thanks to Smokey2 for the heads-up.

The Australian informs us that an “incident” at Kingston’s Fraser Court last night has seen one man dead and another hospitalised.

Anyone know anything more?

UPDATED: LG has pointed out that the SMH has an AAP report describing the incident as an alleged murder “near a housing commission complex in inner suburban Kingston about 9.50pm”.

FURTHER UPDATE: The CT reports that “ACT Public Tenants Association president Ian Edward Hirst, who has publicly raised concerns about anti-social behaviour at the complex, was charged with murder yesterday”

What’s Your opinion?

I think these types of deaths are occuring becuase too many dero f*cks are having too many dero kids and these dero kids are growing up to be loser drug f*cked dero adult crims!!

Two deaths occurring very close together (both time-wise and geographically) may give you that impression – but I’d be interested to see the stats before jumping to that conclusion.

I was on the scene just after a girl jumped off some flats in Braddon committing suicide a couple of years ago. Pretty dramatic but that wasn’t in the press. All very sad

Toastie – Ice has been around for eons – its just the media latching onto it because most of our precursors are coming from ofshore now. (Thats intel talk for pallets of pseudoephidrine being imported from SE Asia.)

Drugs and drug related violence/deaths go hand in hand – its just unfortunate that we have had 2 so close to eachother.

Perhaps its a bit of a Darwinian selection thing going on…

toastie 12:43 pm 05 Dec 06

word on the street is that crimes like these are happening more because of the increase of Ice in Canberra.

It does seem to me that there has been an increase in these types of crimes.
but maybe I just pay more attention to it now than I did when I was younger..

Absent Diane 12:03 pm 05 Dec 06

is it just me or is this type of crime in canberra way on the up. wonder if there are stats on the levels of crime increase in cities against population growth… tell me.

thats 2 deaths is as many weeks.
Good to know the Housing complexes are safe places.

Sammy – No names released yet but 106.3 is reporting the same.

Woody Mann-Caruso 11:02 am 05 Dec 06

That’s not the incident. This is The Incident.

Sammy 10:57 am 05 Dec 06

ABC News are reporting that someone has been charged with murder over the ‘incident’.

Jey 10:44 am 05 Dec 06

Wasn’t this where that body was found in the laneway a few weeks back?

Danman 8:57 am 05 Dec 06

All open sources are claiming an “Incident”
I suggest scant people know – as they have not made a police media release yet.
