Fight Club at the Erindale Maccas

By johnboy - 1 April 2013 3

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses after an assault in Erindale early this morning (1 April) resulted in a man being hospitalised.

Around 1am police were called to the car park behind the Erindale McDonald’s after reports of a fight involving around 15 people.

Upon attending the scene police found an unconscious 23 year-old male victim who had sustained serious head injuries.

He was taken to The Canberra Hospital by the ACT Ambulance Service where he remains in a critical, but stable condition.

Anyone who may have witnessed the assault, or has information which can assist police with the investigation is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via act.crimestoppers.com.au.

Well the first rule of fight club will probably stop anyone from talking about this.

Brain damage to this poor guy will mean that wonderful Justice Tezza (seems this might make it to the Supreme Court) will turn a suspended sentence into a massive three months of periodic detention.

The way the ACT judiciary treats grievous bodily harm and other serious forms of assault is an absolute joke, even when we make allowances for the laws themselves being laughable. I only hope they start to suffer the same terrible fates as victims of crime. That appears to be the only way for any of these “white tower” types to get their heads out of the sand.

Whilst I am the first to think that our justice system is beyond pathetic, would it change your stance if the person who suffered the serious head injuries was actually the aggressor who happened to pick a fight with a 3rd Dan black belt without realising it?

Not saying this is what happened, and the person who sustained head injuries may very well have been an innocent person wrong place wrong time. But IMHO jumping to conclusions is just as bad as a judge who feel that 547 chances is still not enough.
