Police Wrap – 17 July

By johnboy - 17 July 2009 25

1. Thuggies come to Civic:

    ACT Legislative Assembly car park Friday, July 17, 2009 in which two males were assaulted and had cash and mobile phones stolen.

    ACT Policing Beats Team responded to the incident, in which it had been reported that the two males were assaulted by a group of five males. An 18-year-old man from Red Hill received a possible jaw fracture while another 18-year-old man from Downer received soft tissue issues to his face.

    Police had stopped and questioned five male youths as persons of interest for suspicious behaviour earlier in the evening and suspect the same group may have been involved in the aggravated robbery.

    Enquiries are continuing.

    Police would urge anyone who may have witnessed any suspicious activity or behaviour in Civic, particularly around the Legislative Assembly car park on London Circuit, in the early hours of this morning, possibly involving a group of five male youths, should contact Crime Stoppers.

If you can help police contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online.

What’s Your opinion?

Who needs a txt speaking wanker when I have JB ‘the anti-establishment’ man calling me completely ignorant? Should you be throwing stones? I’ve been old for some time but you don’t come across as the kind of character to display even a little respect for anybody older. I don’t think you should respect me in any way but if you want some for your thoughts it does go both ways.

So, you think that there is no lesson to be learnt from history or from those around you and their observations? How very open minded of you.

As for your point regarding the actions of kids since Cook sailed in – in those days some of your opinions you post here you would have seen you lashed and I would have been happy to swing the whip but alas we have moved on.

Dear God, DJ, dear god…

Btw, old man…would hard work and character building include not getting a pension? Kids today won’t be…

It’s ironic how, since the rise of the Generation With Rights, we seem to be going back to the law of the jungle.

Yeah it’s great, bagged me a lion last night walking back from the pub!

But I see your point ant, when those pesky barons got these new-fangled individual rights proclaimed back in 1215 at Runnymede they obviously knew that it would just be eight short centuries before their dastardly plan came to fruition in the anarchy and destruction that is the mean streets of Canberra.

Pig? Maybe your 16 year old son made a remark like that when they took his wallet.

DJ can you pinpoint the exact moment you turned into an old man or did it happen gradually?

These particular kids on the other hand are vicious scum. I hope they get caught, and I hope they get locked up.

My hope is that they try it on with someone who kicks their arses from here to next June.

Oh and JB, if you expect people here not to call names or make personal remarks, some example setting would be good.

Maybe we should import thugs. We’ve tried it with cane toads. *chuckle*

Pish! How Soft! Try growing up in the East End. My dad’s family knew both the Kray’s and Cornell who, nut for a modicum of good taste on the part of my aunt, could have ended up as my uncle. The pack of so called thug’s getting around here would crap themselves in the company of some of these folk…

Gosh DJ.

I knew you liked me, but sado-erotic fantasies? That’s very special.

You’d need to at least buy me dinner and, frankly, improve your line of sweet talk significantly.

But hey, lift your game and you never know your luck in the big city.

A minority of Australian youth have been badly behaved since the first fleet arrived and the first whinge about the “kids today” oddly enough was included in the earliest written records.

I mean seriously, is it that you’re completely ignorant? Or you just enjoy being part of millennia old repetition (which by its ancient nature disproves its point)?

These particular kids on the other hand are vicious scum. I hope they get caught, and I hope they get locked up.

DJ 6:10 pm 18 Jul 09

No piss taking should happen. It keeps happening because kids today have no respect for themselves or anything else. Work hard to achieve or earn something you can take pride in? Sounds like hard work and character building… not something the new generation seems capable of.

Now some txt speaking wanker will no doubt take the piss….

Everytime I read one of these thug bash reports I feel sick. As some of you know from earlier posts my 16 year old son was victim to one of these “wallet and mobile or we will kill you” attacks. He received severe facial injuries including breaks, fractures and eye damage. Note- he handed both wallet and mobile over immediatley but it made no difference.

In his case it was 5 against 1- there are enough similarities here between his case and this one for me to call the Officer in charge and see if there is any similarity between the AFP sketches.

How can this keep happening? Please note this is not a post against the AFP esp Woden, who were fantastic- just a cry to the heavens. What kind of person could gang up on a couple of 18 year old boys and do such a thing and still sleep at night. My thoughts are with the boys and their parents and the long road ahead to recover from this.

Rant over- feel free to take the piss, it might lighten the mood.
