Matthew Massey has apparently made a friend and that friend has made it onto the internet to lecture us all:

I know Matty personally and along with many other of Matty’s friends or those that know him would agree with me, He is a Kind & Loyal friend who just wants to be loved, like most of us. You people just sit on your asses with an opinon about everyone and everything, Yes! Matty has done wrong by some but look at who these people are. He has only ever hurt scum junkies or low lives that are a waste of of oxygen. The law continues to set Matty up to fail. They let him out to clean up our streets to do what law should be doing, then throw him back in jail until needed next time.Yes he has a bad reputation but do any of you know about what he has gone through growing up? No, I believe not. If we didnt have our famous Matt Massey, believe me the street would be so much more worse then what they are. I have seen Matty talking to young ones that wont to get a name for them selfs and he was continuely preaching to them not to be like him, to “live a good life with a job”. He really does try, if only someone would give him the chance to do the right thing! you would see the real Matty, not this person he has been made out to be. Dont set him up to fail again please.

It’s time for young Mathew to take a new path. Write a book on his life of crime, do the talk circuit with Roger Rogerson, perhaps try his hand at a bit of art. A vacancy has just arisen, I understand.

Matthew Massey and Skywhale – What a powerful combination!

This is the Canberra I’m proud of and want the World to see.

… not to mention Dugan and Ferguson on the roof drunk.

This reminded me to check out Bree-Bella Arioli’s Facebook page again. Love that one of her puppies is called Mulli. LOVE NEVER DIES….

So glad we have Matt Batman Massey to protect us from the junkies. Didn’t look so brave as he ran from an angry mob at a big Canberra event earlier in the year…

@ tooks what event and what mob?

Anyone who thinks massey is actually doing good work in the community is a bloody idiot!!! I remember his last breach of bail the cops found him in the act of stealing a motorbike and in the possession of several stolen credit cards. Yeah this guy is really just miss understood. I feel so sorry for him the cops are such bullies always busting his dumb ass for robbing jewellery stores or kidnapping and bashing junkies who owe money to some ice queen.

Ouch, my eyes. When will people learn to read and write English?? “so much more worse then what they are”, “that wont to get a name for them selfs” and “continuely”. Please, even the words are underlined in the spell check red colour, it isn’t very hard to proof read before pressing submit.
As for the message amongst the garbage, vigilante action on anyone, including scum, is still illegal. Is this person for real??
I don’t even want to read anything about this loser [or the one bringing this illiterate mess to our screens].
Birds of a feather….

Lots of people have a rough life growing up, but they don’t go commit crimes, say one thing and do another. I think there are always plenty of people willing to help, but their ideas never sound as good…. I mean why educate yourself, get a job and earn money when it sos easy to steal instead!

How many chances has this guy had?

He didn’t go to rehab once he got out last time, has failed to report to authorities, refused to give urine samples for drug tests etc – all the while he continued to break in to people’s places and steal THEIR things…

he’s had so many bloody chances that people are sick to bloody death of hearing about him. He’s had over 50 convictions.

What about the multiple armed robberies he’s done? Has he EVER given a single thought to the victims of his crimes?

I don’t mean the shop owners who might’ve lost a bit of cash or smokes, but the poor sucks in fear of their lives while he points a weapon at them?

No. Not if he keeps doing it again and again he doesn’t. THAT person is the real Matty – not some poor hard done by kid.

He has made all his own selfish decisions for the last 20 or so years. Why the hell should the community have to put up with him?

Never a truer word, etc

Why are there always dimwits around making excuses for these arsehats? How is it that there are people who can only see the 1% of good in people who appear to be 99% bad. People who can create weird rationalisations to excuse behaviour that any normal person would see as stupid, self-serving and sociopathic and harmful to both the perp and the victims.

I really, really fail to get it.

“The law continues to set Matty up to fail. They let him out…”

I agree.

Letting scum out of gaol is just setting them up to fail. Once somebody has a criminal record that is even a fraction the length of Massey’s, the law should stop setting them up to fail and simply keep them in gaol, forever, for their good as well as for the community’s.

Is it mad Massey day or something…?

at least we’re safe from her now for the next few years…

The thing that bothers me with this is my assumption that all her legal shenanigans has helped enrich a bunch of lawyers at the expense of the taxpayer.

curlylocks 5:19 pm 11 Oct 13

Hear hear Canardly totally agree with your comments 100% and what I do not comprehend is if he WANTS to change he would do all the things that is required BY LAW for him to help himself get out of the life that he has made for himself.

Always good to have an afternoon chuckle.

The hero that Canberra doesn’t need and certainly doesn’t want.

Plus what kind of superhero has their weakness as urination trouble and cat allergies?

“Sorry, can’t perform any street justice today. Ribs are sore which makes pissing unbearable.”
