Kai Yuen pleads guilty to the Hughes shooting

By johnboy 18 February 2013 22

The ABC has word that the trial for the murder of Brendan Scott Walsh in 2010 has come to a speedier than expected conclusion:

The man accused of murdering Brendan Scott Walsh in Canberra’s south two years ago has pleaded guilty just a week out from his trial.

Mr Welsh was shot in the chest with a double barrel shotgun as he sat in his car at the Hughes shops in May 2010.

Kai Yuen, 28, was charged with his murder and had been due to stand trial next week after pleading not guilty.

The ACT Supreme Court trial was to take eight weeks with more than 100 witnesses.

But in a surprise move today Yuen changed his plea to guilty, avoiding a trial.

Sentencing will be in April. Alleged conspirators Cameron Ashcroft and Todd Elphick are still awaiting trial.

Every second week! Would have seen them more if it wasn’t for his c@@t of a mother I’m not upset about losing a drug dealer I’m devestated by the loss of my partner and the father of my at the time unborn daughter !! His death had nothing to do with drugs it was a stupid fight over a car that had nothing to do with Kai! Maybe u should get your facts straight before commenting on something u know nothing about ! I’m sure your going to come back with some stupid comments about how I’m a drugo don’t care I know the truth and that’s all that matter r.i.p brendan rot in hell Kai

WTF?

You obviously don’t speak the lingua franca of the mean streets of middle class Canberra, not like my friend “crazycanberra” and I.

People getting killed over trivial bulls*** is always sad. Presumably Kai will serve a fair whack of his life in the AMC but the cycle will still continue. That’s the most tragic thing.

I’m guessing it’s in Klingon, can someone translate it into Earth language?

Nah, Boganese. Klingon has better syntax.

From what I gather from that message is that Crazycanberra’s dealer got shot, died and therefore was in no position to score any more stuff and she/he had to go a few days sober. Touching…….

Had he pleaded guilty at his first court appearance, he’d probably be out by now…

He will probably get remission for “good behaviour” now.

Unlikely given his behaviour in prison.

They weren’t arrested until August 2010 http://news.smh.com.au/breaking-news-national/two-men-accused-of-canberra-mans-murder-20100812-120d7.html, so more like 2.5 years – still nothing to boast about.

Oh i’ve got another one for ya which is an absolute cracker.

Jonathan Crowley was shot by police on 11 December 2001 leaving him with Quadriplegia.He sued for damages in 2002 and for reasons unknown the trial did not begin until 19 May 2008.After 10 sitting days it was adjourned until 24 February 2009.It then resumed and proceeded for a further 12 days until 19 March 2009 whereby the trial judge Penfold reserved her decision and then more than two years later ie. 10 June 2011 wrongly awarded Crowley $8m in compensation.Now that’s an absolute cracker especially given that on 17 December 2012 the Court of Appeal overturned the decision!

Exactly and here’s another example of how the wheels of justice roll at a snails pace:

On Sept 13 2009 Troy Wilson rolled his 4WD killing his wife and was charged with Negligent Driving Occasioning Death but was found not guilty on 31 January 2013.That’s over 3 years and he got off to boot!

Is almost 3 years to get to trial normal?
This seems a long time to me.
