Gungahlin thug arrested

By johnboy - 7 September 2012 36

Police have arrested a 17-year-old teenager in relation to an alleged assault of a 20-year-old man in Gungahlin last week.

Around 9.00pm last Friday (August 31), police attended Hibberson Street in Gungahlin after receiving reports of an assault.

The 20-year-old man was taken to the Canberra Hospital where he was treated for injuries resulting from the assault.

Police arrested the teenager earlier today and he was taken to the ACT Watch House.

He was charged with serious assault and was released on Watch House bail. He will face the ACT Children’s Court at a later date.

Why the hell is a 17 year old being charged in the childrens court? Trial him as an adult. Trial anyone over the age of 13 as an adult

Um … do you know what ‘adult’ means?

Yes!….walking the streets at 9:00pm and throwing hay-makers at other people.

Is this the assault that was reported on ABC radio the other morning? The father of the poor lad who was assaulted told the story of his son waiting for 8 hours in emergency with a broken jaw before being seen by a doctor.

Blah 8 hours……

Hospital stats probably say 30mins

Police and emergency both emerge from this looking less than stellar.

That’s gobsmacking!

I laughed then I felt really really bad.

So, if it turns out that the particular thug that king hit the victim isn’t this un-named person I guess JB will have to change the headline.

Until that happens, no harm, no foul

So how do you know he is a “thug”? Innocent until proven guilty old chap.

“He” has not been named.

And won’t be because he’s a minor. It makes no difference – you have passed a judgement on his character. Poor, poor ethics.

Given he was apparently charged with recklessly inflicting grevious bodily harm suggesting he’s a thug is quite reasonable.

Anyone charged with serious assault could reasonably be considered a thug although we would need more information to be certain.
