I saw and heard some “exhibition” type fireworks going off high in the sky at 8.30pm tonight.

Appeared to be around Chisholm Oval.

It’s all happening in Tuggers.

Well if the ACT Government isn’t going to provide any entertainment areas or things to do for young people in Tuggeranong, then I guess they have to take it into their own hands.

Actually I should be congratulating them for showing some initiative.

I saw 7 teenagers crammed into a small car at the Hyperdome last week. That’s more commuters than the free ACTION Bus that travels around Civic every 10 minutes! Once again Tuggeranong youth showing local leaders Andrew Barr and Zed how it should be done.

You are getting bikie related from where exactly? Apart from the assumption that any firearm related offence in the ACT must be bikies of course, no other criminals here use firearms right…… You probably aren’t wrong, but making assumptions based on no evidence to that end it well…. a little presumptuous no?

Well given that the police have apparently failed to lay any charges after the ACL attack in Deakin despite the perpetrator being identified, I suppose we have to make assumptions.

Obviously I don’t know the story about this case, but the police seem to be turning a blind eye to a lot of Bikie based crime in Tuggeranong.

There is an obvious Bikie house up the road from my very elderly fathers place with a full wall around it. We have never seen a police car even enter the street.

Seems to be consistent reports of shops burnt down or people and houses attacked in Tuggeranong and nothing comes out of it. Rattenbury keeps saying we don’t need the Bikie laws of other States, but the Rebels don’t seem to cause much issue around his inner north home or create noise disturbance with their loud motorbikes in his street.

The AFP Canberra police appear to have acknowledged the problem 2 years ago:

I love the bit where Simon Corbell (what happened to him?) is quoted as saying “he didn’t want the bikies to think Canberra was a “soft touch”. LOL.

When the Rebels recently had a big annual get-together at Fyshwick, I saw a very visible police presence throughout Fyshwick, and many bikies engaged in discussions with police.

Yes, it is a bit weird that a criminal organisation is allowed to publicly advertise its existence, but you can’t blame the police for that.
