Police Wrap – 22 May

By johnboy - 22 May 2009 46

1. Garran Crash:

    ACT Policing is investigating a collision at the intersection of Yamba Drive and Wisdom Street in Garran around 9.45pm on Wednesday (May 20).

    A silver Ford Territory was turning right from Yamba Drive into Wisdom street when a white Ford Falcon utility travelling south on Yamba Drive collided with turning vehicle.

    One of the passengers in the Territory was transported to The Canberra Hospital with minor injuries.

    Other vehicles were waiting in the intersection at the time of the collision and police believe these witnesses may be able to assist in identifying who had a green signal at the time.

    Anyone who may have witnessed this collision is urged to contact Crime Stoppers

2. Farrer Stabbing:

    ACT Policing has arrested a 32-year-old Farrer man after a stabbing which occurred in a home on Spafford Crescent, Farrer yesterday (May 21).

    Around 4.50pm police received reports of an altercation between two men during which a 31-year-old Farrer man was allegedly stabbed. ACT Ambulance attended and the victim was conveyed to The Canberra Hospital.

    AFP Forensic Services attend the scene and investigations into the circumstances surrounding the incident are continuing.

    The alleged male offender was arrested at the scene and is expected to face the ACT Magistrates Court today (May 22) charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

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

You do get worked up easily Jim. 🙂

I just mentioned that the person in question may have fallen on a knife during an altercation, which isn’t the same thing as being apparently stabbed.

I also mentioned that I had a friend who had twice had a similar incident occur with a knife. It was not a stabbing.

I did not mention about the heatedness or otherwise of the incidents that my friend was involved in, or any police involvement. I was simply giving you an example of how something that causes a hole in a body with blood coming out involving a knife does not mean a stabbing had occured.

Have a nice deep intake of oxygen. Hold it. Now exhale. Repeat until you feel better. 🙂

I did.

How in all hell do you “allegedly stab” someone?

The victim was allegedly stabbed – slightly different; it simply means someone has been accused, but not proven or convicted, of stabbing someone.

Jim Jones said :

The very first line of the write-up calls it “a stabbing which occurred”, and then the second line devolves into cop-speak: tack on the word “alleged” to absolutely everything, regardless of whether it’s warranted or not.

They probably should have called it ‘an apparent stabbing’ initially.

And presumably item 1 should have been called an “apparent collision”?

Oh, if I only had a penny for every time this happened to me.

My friend would have two pennies if she had a penny for everytime she had fallen on a knife and penetrated herself.

How much would you have Jim?

Oh my god, your friend was involved in a heated argument, the cops became involved, and they arrested someone for stabbing your friend, and it went to court, but really she’d only fallen over on a knife.

And it happened twice!!!

He was either stabbed, or he wasn’t. That sort of detail really isn’t hard to figure out.

How do you figure? Because I can write more than one sentence about a subject?

Tooks 2:34 pm 22 May 09

Wow, you get worked up easily.

Jim Jones 2:30 pm 22 May 09

He was either stabbed, or he wasn’t. That sort of detail really isn’t hard to figure out.

Holes in body … check! Blood gushing out … check!

The very first line of the write-up calls it “a stabbing which occurred”, and then the second line devolves into cop-speak: tack on the word “alleged” to absolutely everything, regardless of whether it’s warranted or not.

The alleged man was allegedly walking his alleged dog down the alleged street, allegedly brandishing an irregular wooden device [stick].

Great zombie Jesus, can someone not tell the cops to start using the English language to communicate rather than obfuscate.

Seriously, cops have got to start using English instead of their own cliched jargon. I’m amazed that the write-up doesn’t include anyone “brandishing” a weapon.

Do we take it from you he was definitely stabbed by someone?
