By johnboy - 17 December 2008 40

1. The kids are getting bolder:

    ACT Policing is investigating an assault at the Woden Bus Interchange about 12.45pm yesterday (December 16).

    The 31-year-old victim was attacked by four men who restrained him and punched him in the face and head. The offenders are described as between 18-19 years-old.

    One of the offenders is described as approximately 5’7” (170cm) tall, medium build, olive skin, medium length black hair, wearing black track suit pants, a dark coloured shirt and white sneakers.

    The victim received a blood nose and abrasions to his face and head. The offenders were last seen running towards Bowes Street in Phillip.

    Police will be reviewing CCTV footage of the Woden Bus Interchange and surrounding shops in an attempt to identify the offenders.

2. Ice bust in unknown suburb (did they mean “Conder”?):

    ACT Policing executed search warrants on homes in Macgregor and Condor today (December 16).

    Officers from ACT Policing’s Special Response and Security and Detectives from the Territory Investigation Group entered the homes in simultaneous warrants about 5am.

    Police at the Macgregor home located a substance believed to be methylamphetamine (commonly known as ‘ice’), 40 tablets of alleged ecstasy an amount of alleged cannabis and several rounds of ammunition.

    The 21-year-old occupant will face the ACT Magistrates Court today charged with two counts of trafficking in a controlled drug other than cannabis, possession of a prohibited substance and possession of ammunition.

    At the Condor address police located an amount of powder suspected to be methylamphetamine. The 20-year-old occupant will also face the ACT Magistrates Court today charged with possession of a drug of dependence.

If you can help police contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via the web site www.act.crimestoppers.com.au.

Dexi I hear you! Last week I had the luck of sitting in front of a smack addict explaining to his friend that lesbians like being in jail because of the “lickitisplits”. I nearly did myself an injury trying not to laugh out loud! He was also pretty sure that someone tried to inject herion in his eye but he might have just dreamt it so he wasn’t going to bash them.

I’m with dexi on this; it is Reality Soap Opera.

It is a bit scary when emotions explode on the bus, rather than at the interchange, though.

“What is it about ferral people and interchanges?”
Maybe they are catching the bus.

Some of you really have a sheltered life. I use public transport all the time. Occasionally you get loud mouths shouting stuff at each other or the kiddies threatening to scrap. This is entertainment to a otherwise bland, safe form of transport. Without them Id have nothing to talk about when I get home.

You know they are not interested in, all you citizens. Who they want, is the C### who sold them salt or are wearing the trainers they had stolen. My personal favorite are the pram pushers with potty mouth, an arm full of plastic bags and a dislike of some girls sexual choices.

I like the bus. It is an interesting slice of Canberra.

Must be the entertainment hub of their pathetic lives.

Semi-captive audience?

What is it about ferral people and interchanges? Surely it can be that exciting for them to hang out there.

You can be charged with posession of ammunition?

If you don’t have a license to posess it of course you can… Just the same as being charged for driving without a license.

Bet the MacGregor house was the one a street over… I’ve always had my suspicions.

Plus it has to be stored correctly.

Back to the interchange… politicians should have to catch public transport and experience what the rest of the public have to endure. I also think that there may be more to this story than meets the eye – I am ready for the blokes mates to jump in here and defend him (and would be happy to be wrong).

Does anybody else see the contradiction between attempts to force us onto buses and then expecting us to run the gauntlet of the hoods and bogans at the interchanges? At least when I drive my car I don’t have to put up with low lives begging money for drugs.

I’d love for my 11 and 8 year old children to catch a bus to school. And then a bus to my work when they have finished school. Alas, all our Action buses to school (public school) go through an interchange. It will never, ever happen. These Canberra interchanges are scary places.

I have had the misfortune to collect my partner from the Woden interchange when his car died on him. I have never seen so many people with so few teeth.

Least not until you’re held at knifepoint in the carpark, have your car broken into and/or stolen…
