Conclusions are like that though, they just kind of sit there and holler, “Jump! Jump!”

Are you sure?

Hmm, how to answer this one. Yes you are right, No, I’m not sure….However,

Unless you were involved in the incident, attended the incident, or are the investigating officer/s, one’s knowledge of it, will be limited and possibly clouded by opinion. My point was and still is, to not jump to conclusions until the full details come out (I am not defending the actions of ANYONE)

Managed to get in contact with my mate, he lives only a few houses away. Says he didn’t hear or see anything unusual but he adds that domestics, loud music and cars roaring up and down the street/burnouts are “normal” for the area.

Mate of mine lives down the road. Says it was a lovers tiff or something.

Doesn’t sound good.

I have a friend that lives in that street, I hope it wasn’t him that was hit and killed. Was the victim a resident can you tell me?

Wake up special G….That is not what I was saying at all. Read carefully what you are commenting about before blasting from the hip.

There is no excuse for “hit and run”. Simple.

I was simply saying that we should see more details before making ill informed judgements. You have no idea what happened apart from what has been reported in the media and I am sure all will be revealed in the future.

Get on your bike Spideydog. Anyone who hits a person and then leaves them lying on the road to die gets everything they deserve. Too bad it’s the ACT Courts and her excuse will probably be “I thought it was a Kangaroo” which will get her off.

If you hit a person/animal the least you should do is stop and render assistance – be that contacting Wildlife control to come and shoot the poor roo.

I can only say, don’t jump to conclusions….wait for the full details of the incident to be revealled before judging.

Sympathies to family and friends concerned.

I also know this family and it is tragic, I cannot believe this has happened.
You have to really live and enjoy life because you never know the minute, I just hope he wasn’t lying there for to long in pain before he was found.

That just makes my blood boil!

Poor thing.

How long was he lying there before somebody found him? For his sake I can only hope that he died instantly and did not linger and suffer.
