Police Wrap – 15 September

johnboy 15 September 2008 22

1. An alleged Braddon liquor store blagger has been found:

    A 37-year-old man will appear in the ACT Magistrates Court today charged with the aggravated robbery of a liquor store in Braddon on Tuesday (September 9).

    The alleged offender, dressed in black and wearing a balaclava, entered the liquor store on Tuesday around 10.30pm, threatened the attendant with what was suspected to be a firearm, and stole a sum of cash.

    On Saturday (September 13) around 5pm, members of ACT Policing’s Territory Investigations Group executed a search warrant on the alleged offender’s place of residence and seized a number of items as evidence.

    The alleged offender was then taken into custody and conveyed to the Regional Watch House at City Station where he was charged with aggravated robbery.

2. Police would like to know more about islanders beating the brown stuff out of a young man in Griffiths on Friday:

    He was located just after 5am slumped next to his vehicle and appeared to have suffered injuries consistent with an assault.

    The victim is yet to provide police with a statement as his injuries required him to be sedated. The injuries are not thought to be life threatening.

    Police believe five people of Islander appearance, three males and two females, were seen in the vicinity of the male’s vehicle around the time of the incident.

If you can help police with any of these matters contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au.

I had a cup of tea hand-delivered this morning, but alas no chocolate. Perhaps I don’t have everything after all … omigosh! A cherry ripe has appeared even as I type. Somebody’s awful keen to keep me happy!!

*chuckle*

Surely you coulda learnt armed robbery closer to home Johnboy? Seems like a long way to go to learn such a common artform.

I just served them beers, pushed the brown paper bag (filled with I never looked to find out what) at the detective sergeant once a week to stay out the rest of the time, and made away on my toes when I slept with the wrong blaggers girlfriend.

I can’t even think what I want for my birthday because I’ve just got everything – well, now I’ve got my Feldons CD at any rate – so I am driving my family crazy.

Granny, I know exactly what you mean. Now I have a Feldon’s CD my life is pretty much complete. Now if I could just get someone to hand deliver cups of tea and blocks of chocolate, I’d be set for life!

And as for blagging, yeah, I’m pretty good at tylersmayhem’s definition 😉

But here’s the dictionary definition, if anyone’s interested.

Well, in that case I’m all for it!

; )

Well, I’m sure having a Feldon’s CD constitutes as an abuse of human rights 😛

Granny Granny 4:21 pm 16 Sep 08

I am almost as good at complaining as blagging, but I am pretty much the luckiest woman in the whole darned world I reckon.

I can’t even think what I want for my birthday because I’ve just got everything – well, now I’ve got my Feldons CD at any rate – so I am driving my family crazy.

Sadly prisoners are in prison a long time before any court passes sentence, I’m afraid.

Deadmandrinking Deadmandrinking 4:06 pm 16 Sep 08

You can always come on Riot-Act and complain that it’s like being in prison.

Granny Granny 3:59 pm 16 Sep 08

Hey, I’ve just realised I don’t get paid now! Someone is in so much trouble when they get home. Thank you for bringing this to my attention, dmd!!

Deadmandrinking Deadmandrinking 3:57 pm 16 Sep 08

Why do the brits slaughter their own language?

Granny Granny 3:57 pm 16 Sep 08

Oh, I’d soon blag ’em into shape. Somebody stop me!!

*heh heh heh*

Gosh, I do two of those three kinds of blagging all the time! Who knew …?

It’s the army for you then, Granny!

(You don’t get paid for it either, see?)

To blag, in England, is to is talk someone into giving you something.

Not entirely accurate. Blagging is just as commonly used to refer to “winging it”.

For example “I applied for a job as a Microsoft Word Trainer. I’ve never been a trainer before, but I completely blagged (lied and made up bulls**t) the interview and got it.

Same same, but different.

That’s the beauty of English – the same word has different meanings depending where you’re from. Great init? Gets better when you move over here and wonder why people are chucking their problems on the barbie, etc (snags).

2. blagger – British Prison slang for a bank robber

Also used in the parts of the East End where I hung out for a few months for anyone undertaking armed robbery.

To blag, in England, is to is talk someone into giving you something.
“I just blagged a ticket to Galstonbury”, etc.
Robbing them with a gun is not blagging.
I’d just assumed there was another Aussie meaning…
