Lol, took 6 months to learn to type again, or are you typing with your nose/pencil in your mouth/feet, like a true hero?

I have it on relatively good authority that the perp blew his hand off and that two people are in custody.

Nice stroy but I cant find anything on the CT website about it.

Any links?

CT isn’t exactly a good source of up-to-date information.

While I love a good “crim shoots self while committing crime” story, this is exactly why the idea of some buttplug from the shallow end of the gene pool running around the city with guns scares me so much. If he can’t even get out of a car without letting one go, what might happen when he starts pointing it in peoples faces?

He might lose his other hand?

LOL, what a funny outcome. Looks like the gun buy back had “some” good things come of it, crims dont know how to handle them properly anymore.

Guess he will be called “lefty” from now on.

Apparently what happened in this story was that he was going to rob one of the shops there and then accidentally shot his finger off. Therefore leaving quickly to go to the hospital.

Any reports or media releases about this, or did you see it yourself?

The bomb thing mentioned before was probably the story about a car that was parked in the Chisholm area. Someone set the car alight and the fuel tank went off. There was a bomb squad there.

Projectile – like a bullet – or bomb?

Someone taking a shot at someone, or kids with fireworks or a pipe bomb destined for a local letterbox?

Either way, it is a bit of a worry, cause I was there with my 12 year old brother in law a couple of days ago…

Captain RAAF 7:59 pm 24 Feb 11

Ah, onya JB, thought you’d be all over it.

What’s the odds on the car being a white commodore?

Captain RAAF 7:58 pm 24 Feb 11

Bomb in a car apparently. Went off, blew a window out….
