Mully grief leads to fire twirl assault

johnboy 12 December 2010 22

The Canberra Times has the tragic tale of Elliot John Fleet who’ll be returning to the community next year after a spell in the Hume Hilton.

Fleet went down for headbutting a fire twirler in Civic, in his defence he said he was really upset about the great scum cleansing of March.

The Mully disciple was also using his pregnant girlfriend to fence stolen good. Sadly she couldn’t be at the sentencing to support him as she had her own matters to attend to in the Magistrate’s court.

Its sad, those fire twirlers are some of the few people who actually perform in civic free, not trying to suck your wallets dry. like most of Civic venues. other, performers like the nice junkies who beg.
It is sad, that there isn’t a club Rage run by the ABC, like a free venue, health drinks live music comedy.
Alcohol is a big winner isn’t it. Elliot will know all the junkies when he gets out. It,s like Aboriginal communities, the Junkie Swarm only ever lets you get so far, unless you are not known by it.

@ The Dark – For the record we did “simply tell him we didn’t have the phone” many, many times. A few of our spinners tried to leave and he tried searching their pockets and bags, he threw his shoe at me and spat on just about everyone even before the head butting, we had 3 separate girls call the police as they were too scared to leave. We were all in silence and absolute awe of what was going on. This person is manic. We were just there as we were every Thursday night meeting and spinning, we are mostly tree huggers that would never steal from or hurt another being.
Thanks for destroying something special we had created and had started to grow from nothing through a common interest. Canberra doesn’t have much in the way of drug free youth activities that are actually interesting and we really had something going before you came and wrecked it. We have given up on regular meet ups to twirl due to threats on your behalf. I hope you feel great that you managed to split up a year of growth between like minded individuals because your friend smashed his phone, cant hold his drink and obviously has mental/drug issues. Thanks a lot.

Also Me No Fry – thats the awesome thing about quoting isn’t it, you don’t have to quote the whole sentence.

Now now, don’t get all defensive. I was trying to make a feeble joke about being queeried as opposed to being queried.

Proboscus – Trust me dude, i probably have more hatred for the pack mentallity than you could ever imagine, as I don’t look like the sort of person to normally associate with people like Elliot (and i rarely do, its just when we run into eachother wherever it may be), I’m the sort of person that would usually be the target of such attacks, so i really take offence at you accusing me of being in ANY way associated with those ‘people’.

And might i add (so hopefully my reputation around here won’t be forever tarnished by association), I can handle my drink, I have NEVER bashed anyone in my life, 90% of the time I am involved in any form of confrontation, violent or otherwise, its usually that ratio AGAINST ‘us’ (and by ‘us’ I don’t mean me and 20 mates who love fighting/bashing people, i mean me and a small number of people of whom the vast majority prefer to AVOID fights, we’d much prefer to just be left alone as most of us have been copping sh*t from these ‘people’ for years)

And no, Elliot isn’t the ‘runt’ of the pack, 1 because we arn’t in any way like a pack, we have no pack mentallity, we don’t roam the streets looking for fights, we just hang out together have a couple of drinks (and yes, i know you’re all gonna say he had more than afew, etc, he didn’t regularly drink with us, this was not a common occurence) and get away from the norm of work/school/etc, its very rare that anything like this happens and whenever it does, it is usually confined within ourselves noone gets hurt, 2, because he’s roughly the same size as most of us anyway and 3, He wasn’t out looking for a fight, he was looking for his phone and he thought this guy had it, turns out he didn’t, but the guy tried to blame people that Elliot knew didn’t have it, instead of simply saying he didn’t have it, which made him think that he DID have it and was trying to pass the blame. Once again, not saying i agree with what he did, I’m just saying that he wasn’t there to start a fight, if he had wanted to fight, he would have just gone to mooseheads or something and found someone else as willing to fight as himself.

Also Me No Fry – thats the awesome thing about quoting isn’t it, you don’t have to quote the whole sentence.

Breda – He hadn’t been ready to attack someone over he just thought someone had taken it and started yelling at him, then the other guy said he didn’t have it and he calmed down and ended up finding it, no violence.

Niftydog – he had broken his phone earlier that afternoon and another one of his mates was holding it after putting it back together to prevent it getting broken again.

JessicaNumber – well, instead of needing a ‘secret code phrase’ to avoid a headbutting, maybe they should just be straight up and say they don’t have the phone in question, that is ofcourse if the headbutting would result from a situation involving a stolen phone.

Also, just a final word, aside from assumptions people here may have made about me and my associations, I am actually friends with some of those firetwirlers, better friends infact than i am with Elliot, so don’t assume that im biased in this matter or don’t see the other side of things.

Well at least we all now know the secret code phrase to use in order to avoid a headbutting. It should be distributed to fire twirlers everywhere.

Way to make your friend sound like an even bigger douche, The Dark! {claps}

“had stolen his phone (which was missing and in a few pieces at the time)”

Uh huh. I think you might have let the cat out of the bag there, buddy.

“Not justifying what was done, just saying that it could have been avoided with a simple ‘no’ as a similar situation had arisen a few days previous and it was avoided in such a manner”

So, he was ready to attack someone else under similar circumstances a few days earlier?

Lovely chap. I hope they throw away the key.

…and when queeried the fire twirler didn’t respond…

Queeried – that can’t be good. It’s a wonder he didn’t respond.

Is The Dark for real? Your little mate (and I’ll get back to his height soon) is a reflection of what is bad about a growing number of 17-25 year olds males today.

You can’t handle your drink, you hunt in packs, find one or two people to bash (because the odds of 7 Vs 2 is a fair fight according to your remedial maths) and think it’s a great night out.

I’m guessing your mate Elliott – being the runt of the your pack – was unable to find anyone suitable for a doush (Carny’s won’t be in town til the Canberra Show). Hence he thinks he can bash a street performer.

For me – I hope Elliot is sitting in his cell at the Hilton with a large cell mate with a larger libido.

I was actually there that night, and in Elliot’s defence (i’ve known him for years, he’s a mate, etc. im sure noone here will hold that against me… haha) he was very drunk at that point and was really stressing about other things that were happening in his (not criminal) private life at the time aside from Mully’s death (who before anyone asks, i didn’t know) and he had thought that said fire twirler had stolen his phone (which was missing and in a few pieces at the time) and when queeried the fire twirler didn’t respond with a simple nah dude, i don’t have your phone, he tried saying that myself and 3 others had phone (which Elliot knew we didn’t), simply because we were walking away at the time to another part of the park, hence his reaction.

Not justifying what was done, just saying that it could have been avoided with a simple ‘no’ as a similar situation had arisen a few days previous and it was avoided in such a manner

Also, JessicaNumber, the feeling at the time amoungst several of the fire twirlers was to find him and ‘douse him in kero and set the C**t on fire’, so not all of them are as chill as you may think

You need new mates, this one is a douche headbutting strangers in the street.

Aww you guys are too mean to fire twirlers. In the hands of the right person a burning stick could be an effective weapon against a headbutting bogan.

Unfortunately fire twirlers tend to sweet and mellow and don’t think of that when faced with an actual headbutting.

Another sweeping generalisation?

Retrospective abortion time for both of them.

Cool!

But we all should accept that going on a drug and alcohol fuelled crime rampage is the traditional way for the low life bogan to show their grief. They can’t help it – it’s inbred into them over generations.

Come back, Mully, there’s still some work for you to do.

The court heard the 21-year-old was very drunk when he attacked a fire-twirler with a head-butt to the face, which the prosecution described as a ”Liverpool kiss”.

Wrong, it’s a “Glasgow kiss”, aka “face-full of dandruff.”

Fleet went down for headbutting a fire twirler in Civic

Surely that’s a right enshrined in the Constitution?!

Was this another fire twirler that JohnBoy has been involved with?

Small world!

Not as far as I know. They might not have been planning to leave town.
