No one murdered outside the Cube

Joe Canberran 13 March 2008 89

That’s right, Nato Seuala, who died after receiving stab wounds “in the stomach and head in the early hours of July 15, 2006” outside the Cube nightclub, wounds inflicted by club owner Maurizio Rao, was not murdered. He died yes but Justice Malcolm Gray stated “the prosecution failed to prove Rao was not acting in self defence”.

The ABC coverage of the court ruling can be found here.

Rao was also found not guilty of Assault Occasioning Grievous Bodily Harm. Call me old fashioned and by no means do I know the full story but if you take a knife to a fist fight surely you have some idea of the possible outcome. If not GBH or murder then perhaps manslaughter? If not intentional then isn’t there something about being reckless? And how do the patrons of the Cube feel about our legal system giving the thumbs up about it’s staff stabbing drunk patron if they get into a fight?

Why would anybody call themselves ‘kwuld’ though? What the hell have they done with the vowels?

The Samoans stole the vowels!!!

No, no, no, no! The Jews stole the vowels. Samoans only go around beating people up for no reason.

I read it on the internets.

if it is on the internets, that is good enough for me…

I just got back from Samoa, and they are one of the kindest most gentle race I have encountered first hand in their homeland environment.

To associate thugs with only these people is absurd.

Pack animals appear in every race, lets not discriminate…

agreed danman. i have several mates that are maori, fijian, etc. they are known for their positive attitude, not a desire to beat everyone up.

This qld new person isn’t our friend from a few days ago, valiantly patrolling the Parkway with his rubber band gun?

Nah, he’s new. Marty McFly was funny, and he wasn’t motivated by racism like this tool – every thread he’s appeared in has been nothing but abuse of Pacific Islanders and attempting to demonstrate that they’re all evil killers.

I’d suggest ignoring him.

Ah, the good old rascist. Maybe he’s a conspiracy theorist too? Can he please be a conspiracy theorist? A racist conspiracy theorist, like one of those ones who believe Jewish people run the world and that they’re using black people as muscle to control them? And that it’s all to STEAL MAH GUNS!!!

This could be so much fun.

qld, have you got something against islanders? you seem to be popping up on the strangest of threads, maybe you are searching RA for them?

if someone has a knife, in their jacket, and pulls it out to “defend” themselves, is it a concealed weapon, or not?

and regardless of the other actions of the drunken men, the owner of the cube could have walked away, called the police, and laid charges against them. He did not. he provoked the drunks, and someone ended up dead. where was the duty of care to his other patrons? at what point did he decide that he was judge, jury and executioner? what happens next time?

If Rao did that in another state he would have walked free as well. He’s a hero to me the way he fought for justice.

Fought for justice? don’t be ridiculous.

I would like to know why in other states you can be sentenced with gaol under the one punch rule, but you are cleared if you carry a knife (which I believe in other states is an offense in its self)?

Does this mean that I can carry a gun with mr, use it in “self defense” & get away with murder?

Who cares if he called them that racial slur. They were acting like CATS. He wasnt calling all black people cats just these four idiots.
