Death in Kingston – UPDATED

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”

el – noted – I thought u were talking about my comments.

Damn internet.

VG,

I’d rather be a grunt than to have your job mate. It is, or was in my case, probably a lot safer.

Mr Evil Mr Evil 6:19 pm 07 Dec 06

And I bet the offender will feel total remorse for what has happened………

VG, with the number of unsolved murders in Canberra, maybe the AFP need some help from RiotACT anyway? 🙂

If only there were vacancies for all the detectives in this place

Self-defence? So it’s justified that all people living in Kingston are junkies etc, well wouldn’t that mean the accused is also a junkie???? Does he need to be murdered as well because it seems that it’s justified to murder junkies???? Please do not judge people before you know the whole story and circumstances. We are not being judgemental. Try to remember it may be one of your own family members one day.

Would be the emotional rant I was talking about, Danman.

BTW, I won my last fight by 50 metres…

Danman Danman 2:31 pm 07 Dec 06

Emotional rant – who? what?

Bonfire – reminds me of a frenzal Rhomb song

“Im not a coward I’ve got sence – when it comes to self defence – I’d rather leave the scene that fight – but you can try and you just might – you can try and you just might – you can succeed to make me bleed”

Words I have had to live by in the past.

if someone attacks me i will use self defence. depending on the nature of the attack upon me, he amount of force used to defend myself will also vary.

people who have no training will go adrenalin crazy in a fight. often emotions such as anger or fear can affect them. this is why simple fights can get out of hand and severe injury and death can result.

every person should learn to defend themselves. i recommend judo to start with and then another martial art such as tae kwon do or any of the different karates.

but remember the best defense in a street fight is to run away.

el el 1:32 pm 07 Dec 06

Yes, given the accused also ended up in hospital with injuries, self-defence would seem a likely legal defence.

I never said it was justified, either, but don’t let that get in the way of your emotional ranting.

yes it is completely absurd to speculate anything ’til details are known..

Danman Danman 1:00 pm 07 Dec 06

Even if he was – he still has a family – and no doubt that family has some fond memories of the deceased.

Still there is no such thing as absolution in death – as sad as death may be.

for the record – I knew someone who lived in fraser court – a 28 year old aboriginal girl who had a very promising career in the then ATSIC and a very nice textiles company – making indigenous artwork kimonos for national gallery.

So in this case – its 2 stereotypes we are breaking.

I think specualte after the facts are known.

FC FC 12:09 pm 07 Dec 06

Not ALL people that live in Kingston are junkies, but MOST people that live in Fraser Court are.
Its bad that someone got killed, but its easy to think, “who cares” or “one less drain on society” when a junkie gets kills.
The guy may not have been a junkie, but odds are that he was.

I’d hazard a guess (again purely speculative) there was a fight of some sort, seeing as how he ended up in hospital as well.

Self-defence?

Sammy Sammy 8:35 am 07 Dec 06

Yes, the wife and I were hypothesising last night that perhaps he got a little over-exuberant while discussing something with a fellow tenant. Anyone know where the incident took place? The TV footage seemed to be focussing on a stairwell.

Special G Special G 5:24 am 07 Dec 06

Maybe he can use the battered wife syndrome as his defence. Shit had happened to him so many times that in the end he snapped and killed the perpetrator.

Absent Diane Absent Diane 4:51 pm 06 Dec 06

Reflux kills??

I once had a dream that ants were made from the same enzymes as memories.. whatever the fuck that means.

el el 4:39 pm 06 Dec 06

Pretty sad story really. I’d speculate that he’d just had enough of fearful living in a dangerous shithole and finally snapped.

Danman Danman 3:25 pm 06 Dec 06

RELFEX KILLS

i just got an image in my mind – reflex kills – and saw random reams of paper hittin gpeople from a great height and killing them.

Almost as bad as when I had a dream about pushing a trolley catching coathangers that were falling from the sky…

True story that.
