More crime down south or just better at doing media releases?

Ntp 15 August 2007 4

Yesterday’s AFP media releases all hail from Tuggeranong.

First up there is some mighty fine work nabbing three “alleged” burglars after a short vehicle and then foot pursuit.

Secondly is the tale of a Telstra worker who put his bod on the line for the day’s takings and the “alleged” druggie who tried to rob him, cutting him up a little in the process. Leaving ID behind at the scene of a bungled crime is never a good look.

And finally a rather disturbing man on man grope fest inflicted on an
unwilling taxi driver
in Hume, saved by the intervention of one of his co-workers.

Now from the look of it you might be tempted to think that Tuggies is the only area crime happens in Canberra, which I’m fairly sure isn’t the case. Is it just that the Tuggers patrols have had a good run of actually catching offenders recently or are they just producing better, more timely media releases?

Yeah it does seem like there is alot more crime down south. Is it not called “nappy valley”? I think alot of the kids there are turning to crime. Well this is my view there is still alot of crime going on elsewhere.

I saw the young Telstra shop guy in Emergency on Monday night (I’d cut myself & needed a couple of stitches). He was amazingly calm for someone who’d just been stabbed in an attempted robbery. As was his Mum actually, mine would have been freaking out.

It was Gavin Massey, that runaway scamp. The one with the massive tatoo on his neck. Silly boy.

And of course the feral caught in Kambah wouldn’t have been the one that Higgins recently handed a suspended sentence to attend drug rehab would it?
