Ngunnawal burglars disturbed

By johnboy 27 April 2011 22

Three young males have been arrested for aggravated burglary in Ngunnawal yesterday (Monday, April 25).

About 5.30pm the complainant arrived to his home on Yumba Avenue where he disturbed three young males in his living room. One of the offenders threw a kitchen knife at the complainant as he fled the room, which missed and hit the wall.

The offenders immediately fled the scene before police were called. Police patrols located the offenders minutes after with the stolen property, where the offenders attempted to flee.

All three offenders were arrested and were conveyed to the ACT Watch House and will face court at a later date. At this time two offenders have been charged with bail opposed with police awaiting forensics confirmation before preferring charges on the third male.

Any member of the community who sees people acting suspiciously is encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on

Locking him up for a few years may serve the mobs thirst for vengeance, but its not going to do anything constructive.

It’s statements like that which show all which is wrong in society today.

How so. Look at Norway’s system of rehabilitation and there far far lower rates of recidivism.

The problem with Norway’s system is that it doesn’t satisfy calls for vengeance.

Is it wrong that I read this bit of the sentencing report:

He made contact with an employee whom he found “awesome” and that may provide him with future opportunities in horticulture where he sees his future.

And think that “opportunities in horticulture” is a pretty thinly veiled euphemism for running a nice hydroponic setup in the ceiling cavity?
