It’s pretty sad. Especially considering this is the offender’s second stab happy episode in a short period of time.

<==== Same guy.

I am intrigues of the alleged offender is ‘african in appearance’ as to whether he is one of the many we have welcomed to the ACT with open arms in recent years? Sad but the actions of a few can tarnish so many…

People are people. You some who are amazing, some who are scum, and everything in between. You also get examples of each type from different races, genders, religions, ages and sexes.

I’ve lived in and around Scullin for years and have just moved to QBN (Phew?) – all’s I can say is Mr Stab Happy is lucky Denis the Shopguy isn’t still running the 5Star – That man could sort some bogans OUT!

Sadly, I’m quite sure that the reason he sold in the end was that his wee shop was the target of an absurd amount of shoplifters, break-ins and other damage πŸ™

Scullin shops is a strange place.

The op shop is good, as is the hair salon. And I don’t mind the old servo lawnmower/French car repair business. But the little supermarket is pretty depressing. I only go in there in an emergency – it always feels as if a robbery is about to happen. There is a strange bakery that seems to have been closed down for ages. Every now and then there is a bit of activity in there, as if it’s about to reopen for business – then nothing. Also there is a weird coffee bean roaster/(?)/wholesaler(?) that has a sort of front counter, but there is never anybody there.

The pizza cafe has recently closed down… I guess they tried, but overcoming the bad location must have been a tough battle. Their pizzas were OK. On the couple of times I went there the wait was way too long. Soon after they opened, the sign in their window said they were going to bake bread, but it never seemed to happen.

All a bit sad really.

The pizza place seems okay, but even they’ve had their windows smashed in several times. Don’t move to Scullin.

theres nothing wrong with scullin apart from the housos. move the housos on, and youve got one of the best suburbs in the city. plenty of nice open space, close to the mall without being too close, and good roads around, not thru it.

and the pizza place is rubbish, “Organic Wholemeal bases” which is code for flavourless tough to chew cardboard.

Can’t wait for the posts on how the stabber:
Is a good bloke
It was an accident
It was self defence as the victim was a hassling him
Is a great Dad/brother/mate
Has mental issues that in no way relate to drug taking

What is happening to Canberra?? Why are there so many bogans lately who act like butthurt brain sucks? I was in the food court at Woden the other day and two guys started having a fight at the table next to me. A full on stand up yell at each other and hit each other fight. WTF? Woden foodcourt?

Where I come from that was just the normal way of saying hello.

And compared to there, Canberra is the garden of Eden. Maybe you are following the local news more than you used to (and probably should)? In a town with 300,000+ people, there’s got to be some nutters lashing out occasionally.

Exactly what I mean. This is crap what’s going on and it’s just escalating…………………………and I don’t understand why.

I too, live a stone’s throw away from the Scullin shops. At 7:15 I decided at the last minute to go Kippax rather than Scullin shops. Pretty sure I catch the bus from the stop across from those apartments. I’m a young person myself, and absolutely sick of some of the people who reside here. I live across the road from two houses that keep me up at night with their antics, loud cars and fighting. I’ve lived here 3 years and am soon to move because nothing is ever done.

All you have is a pub and a Vietnaese eatery in page, and then a crappy Chinese place in Scullin. That ‘5Star’ market isn’t even worth mentioning. The pizza place seems okay, but even they’ve had their windows smashed in several times. Don’t move to Scullin.

its the flats behind the shop. all housos, and junkies

i also live very close to the scullin shops, but like other posters, i dont go there, florey or hawker much better options.

the best way to fix the problem is have the whole complex carpet bombed, around about 10 or 11am, when the residents are most likely to be in bed. hopefully also take out the eyesore that is the old servo and his collection of wrecked citroens

then rebuild the area with a nice park, some new apartments and a new shops complex.

a small statue of a rotting magna and a stolen commodore to remind society of the areas clean up and all will be well.

… having said all that, it turns out the stabbing itself occurred in a unit nearby, and the stabbee made his way to the shops for help. Maybe just as well someone is still trading there :-\

shirty_bear 10:18 am 02 Jun 11

That’s been a dire area for some years now. We live spitting distance (with a firm/gale-force tailwind) away, and *never* go there. Drove past them about an hour before this event, and commented to SWMBO that I can’t understand any shop still trading there, nor any punter going there.

There seemed to be plans for an overhaul some time ago. And they seem to have evaporated. Not certain it would make enough difference anyway.

I just got onto Google Maps and was very surprised to see that Scullin is in fact in Canberra apparently, not New York as I first thought.

I mean………………WTF???
