Just let this one die a natural death.

Leave the kid alone. She may be misguided but in time who knows.

I understand the desire of friends and families to pretend that everything that happened in his life was rosy, and it’s all someone else’s fault. But it’s a fib.

Up until the moment he first stole a car and waved a shotgun at people, he may well have been a lovely kid, sweethearted and kind. But by those actions, he stopped being that person. If you don’t understand that, you’re not acknowledging everything he was, and the reason why he died.

His choice to use the gun on himself is horrible. A choice to use the gun on anyone else would have been worse. But it was his choice, no-one elses.

Well the local porkers know who to keep an eye on in the future. – and some people wonder why they get a hard time but then Crims spend their lives fooling themselves they are beating the system when in fact the are just loosers.

I support the right of 5 year olds to type words on the Interweb. She’s obviously quite precocious.

I sometimes think that the people who commit criminal acts think they are fighting against “the police”, and no one else is involved. Not the people who own the cars and other property they steal and destroy, the people who find themselves in the middle of the car chase and the confrontation. This stuff can seriously rattle them for days, the world is no longer safe.

And did this fellow only do this one thing? My guess is it was a way of life for him. I wonder how many people’s lives he seriously affected?

If this post is kosher, it gives a worrying insight into the world these types live in, they have no concept of what it is they’re doing to other people.

And I agree, gee up or not, this probably didn’t need to be made a story in it’s own right. It could have lived quite happily and quietly as a comment on a previous story, a story that is old news and should be allowed to fad away.

Nik_the_Pig 11:21 pm 04 Nov 06

It must be a gee up…. but if not don’t worry, she posted her email in the comment (and it is the email her account is linked to so it’s a real email even if she isn’t the person “she” claims to be) and despite anti police opening sentence it reads more like the heart felt love of a four year old for an older brother than a defense of DJ’s actions, which is what I’d expect from a gee up. I’ve no idea if DJ even had a sister, adopted or otherwise, but if this is real then there is no harm in the poor lass feeling love for him. I do hope that ‘she’ gets an education and learns that we are all responsible for our own actions.

And just remember just because many of use believe that DJ wasn’t a victim (and i am in that camp) doesn’t mean that his death wasn’t a great loss to those who loved him.

I don’t buy it.

Not sure if this item should have been posted here . . . it feels invasive.

If it’s not a gee up:

For future reference, gangsta_babe, it’s spelled “meth”, not “mef”.

Jazz 8:44 pm 04 Nov 06

DJ’s sister. I empathise with the loss of someone very close to you but to claim that DJ did nothing wrong is ludicrous.

The general public here are not privy to the reasons behind DJ’s actions but the brandishing a shotgun at police & ramming in a stolen vehicle is what we do know about. Those actions are wrong (It says so in some legal document somewhere).

At some point in his life DJ CHOSE to go down that path. Maybe he could have been helped, maybe not. but he still chose it.

Special G 8:16 pm 04 Nov 06

Is that a gee up?

Jazz 8:11 pm 04 Nov 06

its spelt bruvva not brother.

Pandy 6:45 pm 04 Nov 06

Trollette ryhmes with toilet

She needs to learn to how to spell and how to write a proper sentence if she wants people to listen to what she has to say.

It was a grammatical nightmare and totally detracted from what she had to say.

I’m a little concerned re: her putting up her e-mail.

But I have to say, “Gangsta” – that’s so US 1998.
