    — The dead man appears to have been of Asian appearance.
    — His body was seen by passing motorists as the sun rose.
    — There might have been a weapon of some sort used.
    — There might have been gunshots in the night.
    — There were serious head wounds.
    — Northbourne southbound to remain closed into the afternoon

The perfect situation would be to kick everyone out, demolish the entire place, build some nice expensive apartments that only people with a job can afford, and force the scum into the outer suburbs to do their dealings and leave everyone else alone.

tuggeranong preferably, i dont want them anywhere near my suburb.

Yeah, Gungahlin’s out too.

Fair enough too. I mean I’m all for punishing drug dealers, etc but making them live in Gungahlin is just cruel.

surely im not the only one who upon hearing a police incident had occurred in the flats between Girrawheen and Ijong, immediately jumped to the conclusion that it was a dead crack head?

Crackhead is an all encompassing term, it is still smoked in a glass pipe.

Interestingly,
I’m pretty sure these flats are slated for demolition in the next few years to be rebuilt as expensive high density units.
And sorry Watson, I think Gungahlin is the most likely destination for a large proportion of the residents. Have they filled all the CHC units on Flemington road yet?

I will put in my two cents and say that it is a heroin thing.

That’s ridiculous, we don’t have any Crack heads in Canberra.

Our druggos only do meth.

As a resident of Braddon Northbourne Flats – let’s put some of these rumours to rest:

– 2 People walking to work found the body & called the police.

– There are more cops here that we have ever seen – which is saying something as the Jacks are always around due to the s***hole this place is.

– Bets currently run at it being a ‘disagreement’ between the resident Meth dealers, although a neighbour reckons it could of been a robbery gone wrong (as we’ve had doors shot in with shotguns, people held up with handguns, and several bashings the past six months…) leading on to –

– ‘Gunshots in the night’ – yeah Canberra, welcome to our world. People here are pretty much dulled by hearing things that go bang in the night. There may have been, we were watching a movie that was heavy on the gunfire – maybe our TV was turned up to high… *cough*

– Maybe housing may actually take us seriously now when we tell them that this place is f**king dangerous, and needs to be cleaned up…

There’s always hope.

No most of the scum already lives in the burbs – with 3 kids, drug habbit, and wonders that offer protection by classing others as scum.

PS: If your the kind of person responsibile for having people bashed – because you class them as scum, then remember that you will die a far more horrid death (your turn soon ok).

Yeah, the city needs a better class of d***head.

Who cares about rumours, or if people sit in their appartments waiting to bash someones brains out (DHCS dont care).

The good news is that any pensioners living in that area can now call up DHCS for a grant, or two.

Seriously, I hope that you folk get some relief and action – sounds fairly bad.

Wow, I didn’t know there was such a striking resemblance between Braddon and downtown LA!

It’s a miracle we don’t get dead bodies there more often, with all those guns going off every night.
