Rock throwers on Belconnen Way

By johnboy - 7 October 2011 22

Two men were taken to hospital for medical treatment following a rock throwing incident early this morning (Friday, October 7).

About 4 am, police responded to a report of a rock being thrown through the front passenger window of a taxi on Belconnen Way, at the intersection with Macarthur Avenue in O’Connor, injuring two of the passengers.

A 20-year-old Palmerston man required glass to be removed from under his eyelid and a 19-year-old Hawker man received a laceration to his lip, requiring stitching.

Police spoke with three males at the location who are currently assisting police with their enquiries.

Anyone who may have witnessed suspicious activity on Belconnen Way before 4 am this morning and may be able to assist police with the investigation is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

So there – these mindless morons are just poor, disconnected, misunderstood things that deserve only our sympathy, not condemnation for being Massey-like thugs.

[Sniff]That was beautiful.

I think it should be read out at their hanging.

It must be so empowering never to have f**ked up in life. Never to have hurt or adversely affected another living being in your pursuit of happiness. How does it feel to shit roses? Will you have that as your epitaph? “Here lies “insert perfect citizens name” who never f*&%ed up ever….not once….not one little smidge….honest mate (and when I did, I just didn’t get caught ;))

I understand that you have a deep empathy for people, but please realise that when scumbags do things like this which are deliberate and malicious, the community is understandably angry and wants the culprits brought to justice. This is not a f**k-up, this is a deliberate act designed to damage people and property.

I have not condoned this incident at all. I also do not condone hypocrisy.

When are we going to bring back public floggings for these ‘tards, as I have called for in previous posts?

No doubt the retards who did this will be crying that they were bored, there’s not enough for them to do. Seriously do people have nothing better to do?
Suggest we hunt them, catch them and use them in a sub-human exhibit at the Zoo.

Now, now, now. As someone posted on another current thread, “It’s not only a culture of rebellion and criminal behaviour, it’s a culture of disconnection from society and using whatever one can to survive and avoid abuse (physical, emotional and financial)”.

So there – these mindless morons are just poor, disconnected, misunderstood things that deserve only our sympathy, not condemnation for being Massey-like thugs.

If you want to quote me, do it in context. I was responding to an invitation for thoughts on prison system and culture. Quite a different context to people throwing rocks at taxi’s out in the community. Perhaps you should have posted your response on that thread rather than this one. Then it might have made some sort of sense……sort of

Creative Canberran….if you are going to quote me, do it in context. I was responding to a request for thoughts about prison culture – not people throwing rocks at taxi’s out in the community. Perhaps you should stop being a bitch and post a constructive response on the relevant thread instead.

Sounds like you know these offenders personally and Mr Massey too. How do you know they are Massey like? Do tell……or is this just another of you uninformed generalisations?

Remind me again how many millions the govt is spending on protecting us from rock throwers by installing cages around overpasses? Clearly the troubled yoof / criminal underclass/ general d**kheads of canberra are adapting by bypassing overpasses and throwing rocks from regular footpaths.

Instead of overpasses, maybe we should be building cages around these scumbags and their neighbourhoods instead.

I think that’d be a waste of potential food for the carnivorous exhibits.

Aww, I was hoping phone books were involved 🙁

I think it means they found some likely suspects who surrendered their details when asked, but they don’t have any/enough evidence.

I hope this means what I think it means.

Firstly, that sucks and I hope the victims recover with no dramas.

Secondly…
“…on Belconnen Way, at the intersection with Macarthur Avenue in O’Connor…”

Macarthur Ave doesn’t intersect with Belconnen Way. It changes to Fairfax St at the Miller Street lights. Hopefully that doesn’t cause any dramas further down the track.
