Nurses’ memorial vandalised

By Kerces 1 December 2006 33

The Nurses’ Memorial on Anzac Parade was vandalised yesterday. By the time I got there this morning, someone had been along with CAUTION tape and black plastic and covered the broken panel up. It’s on the inside of the memorial, so the damage is not actually visible from the road on either side.

Police say the damage this time was suspicious, unlike when a panel was damaged a few years ago which was put down to heat stress. The panels cost about $80,000 to replace.

What’s Your opinion?

It was probably Amber Jane Westin attempting to avenge the death of DJ McLachlin.

Trying to get a Riotact event attended by more than a token half-dozen has defeated many wise minds before now. But if you want to have a “concerned citizens, who happen to include a few people who are on Riotact”, you’ll probably do better.

Stanhope has fuck all to do with it. It is NCA land. I am sure the pollies at the Big House would have the NCA ride rough shod over Sonic if they could over this patriotic issue.

So guys what about a RiotAct all nighter get together on Anzac Parade with publicity?

It would be good I guess but only problem is Stanhope didn’t come up with the idea so there is no way it will get done. I’m surprised the RSL hasn’t come up with this proposal. If you could get them onside the idea might get off the ground.

You’d have some funky “aid to civil power” issues if you want them to do any more than call the police when they see something untoward.

Having said that even in that limited capacity it sounds like an excellent use of cadets from ADFA and RMC.

a five person patrol at all times shouldn’t be beyond their resources and would be excellent marching practice 😉

Army marching up and down Anzac parade 24hrs and we could have a changing the guard. It would attract tourists. What a bloody good idea I must say so myself.

I chucked all my DPCUs after I discharged.

Still got my polys although my stuggle to fit into them now…

Lets start a citizens security force. I have a 6d cell mag lite a 1million cp lantern and a penchant for thumping people who wilfully destroy public property.

I also own quite a bit of camo gear so I can look militia style 🙂

Come to think of it, I’m sure the Americans have guards at their memorials.

Maybe the ARmy should stationa few Diggers there every night to patrol up and down?

I’m not sure of the legality of it though.

Thumper 3:12 pm 01 Dec 06

Yeah, I’d be up for a stint as well….

Pandy 2:32 pm 01 Dec 06

Yeah i’ll even put in an all nighter doing some security work on the site.
