Gang violence in Nicolls?

johnboy 22 March 2012 23

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an incident that occurred on Gundaroo Drive, Nicolls, last night (Wednesday, March 21).

Around 10.30pm two men were at their home in Nicholls when a male known to them arrived at the house with a group of men. The group of men forced entry to the house by breaking a front window while the two men fled the residence through the rear door. It is believed the men who forced entry to the home were armed with baseballs bats, metal poles and a sword.

The two men ran accross Gundaroo Drive where it is believed that the group of males got out of a white Holden Commodore and assaulted the two men. Both victims sustained only minor injuries.

A number of members of the public stopped their vehicles on Gundaroo drive to assist the two men. Police are urging anyone who may have witnessed the incident, to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via the website at www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

The federal government (and SA and VIC state governments) just made it worse by giving Holden more money to make more criminal white commodores. May Jeebus have mercy on us all.

Fair call. The gokart reference was more with regards to having your arse very close to the ground and having fuck all suspension travel. So yes. More a complaint with regards to the ride than the handling. Nice pedantry sir, I bid you good day.

It is nice to be appreciated. 🙂

…which when combined with the homemade SSSL springs cause it to handle like an overweight go cart.

I always found gokarts to handle really quite well. While I have never driven an over weight one, I find your expression odd. Maybe if you had said “makes is ride like an overweight gokart…”, but that is a different thing.

I usually find cars with dodgy suspension chops handle more like an overloaded houseboat.

White Holden Commode Door eh? That’s a giveaway for sure, bro.

And a sword! We don’t see a lot of sword action on the Northside these days. I thought that was a Tuggeranong thing.

Aspirational sword fighters in Nicholls.

Could be – I don’t own mine any more!

I doubt it. My guess would be a VN to VY V6 Exec or Acclaim, probably with HSV bodykit, massive exhaust that makes it sound like a vacuum cleaner on roids and 20″ rims and tyres worth more than the rest of the car, which when combined with the homemade SSSL springs cause it to handle like an overweight go cart. That’s how all the cool kids roll these day. Pack of morons.

For some context, PBO is referring to the surprising frequency with which white Holden Commodores rate a mention in police media releases – it’s been remarked on here before this article.

In fact it’s high time that johnboy added a white-commodore article tag.

Highly unlikely unless he mixes in those circles.

These sorts of things are rarely random. It even says “a male known to them”. It is most likely payback for something the two men in the house did in the first place. Yes, I know, I’m jumping to enormous conclusions but that’s usually how these things go down. They obviously weren’t there to rob the place.

This has to stop as it has gone on far too long, when are the Police going to get off their fat asses and do something about these white Holden Commodores?

Surely the police must be able to find these street level dealerships and work their way up to the “Mr Bigs” and the “Captains” of industry pumping Commodores out into the community and hiding them in shipments to go overseas.

When asked why some of these people got into “C-Dores” the general response is; “Awww, my mate has one and I’ve always thought that they were pretty sick and 22 inch rims dont drive themselves is what my stepdad Mick always taught me……..Oh, and it goes really well with my Peter Brock sticker.”

If you are worried that a friend or relative may have an interest in Holden Commodores and dont know what to do, you can ring (02) 6253 3899 for your nearest Honda dealer and they may be able to give you some advice.

Yeah, but the problem with owning a Honda is you need to be near retirement before you can enjoy it.
