I am responsible for my own actions.
I don’t go blaming people and I certainly don’t go seeking sympathy.
I don’t live in public housing and don’t ask for government handouts.

I also have never put myself in a situation where I may be stabbed.
If it smells like smoke it’s probably a fire, so get outa there.

What do you want a cookie or something?

but its not handouts remember, they are all hardworking genuine battlers fallen on hard times…..

none of em are lazy bludgers who find it easier to keep belting out kids to keep the welfare coming than go and get a job.

when i was a student making next to nothing i still managed to pay my tax and rent.

People, it’s time to grow up, stop balming others, society, parents, backgrounds, descrimination, gender and whatever else. Be responsible for yourself.

I hope the young fella pulls through and learns from this.

did anyone ever get the pleasure of meeting the crazy old bat who used to hang around the shops and harass anyone who came out with alcohol?

my wife bought a bottle of wine from dennis one day only to be harassed all the way to the car, harassed thru the window, and chased out of the carpark.

havent seen her in about 18months tho. classic stuff, sadly she wouldnt say boo to me

hmmm…..this sounds a lot like the crazy old sheila i have encountered a few times at the higgins shops over the last 12 months or so…….perhaps she has moved 1 suburb over?

i dont live in scullin but live in a nearby suburb and use the shops on a semi regular basis
a little while back i came out of the shop to find some idiot attempting to break into my vehicle……..in broad daylight…….directly in front of the shop, there certainly are some clowns in this town i tell ya…

I too live close to shops, I regularly shopped at 5 star when Dennis owned it who sold it as he got a great offer not due to any other reasons yes in the beginning he was having problems with break ins trouble etc but that did die down, since the new owner has taken over a lot more people seem to hang around out the front doing nothing and can be intimidating and new owner seems to struggling to keep the shop going which is a shame as it was a good little corner store, the baker to my belief he cooks and out sources sales. As for the stabbing please try to remember it didn’t happen at shops which seems to be the main focus of everyones rant mine include I guess. I would personally welcome a revamped shops but sadly I don’t see this happening due to the fact Hawker and Florey are so close. And as for building more flats in the area I for one am against it clearly this was the problem in the first place putting so many low income earners in the same location always seem to attract trouble, I quite often see police cars attending one of the many flat complex’s around the shops and behind old servo, Or driving around looking for someone. I for one think it’s a joke the courts let these people back out on to the street to cause more harm.

I live here, I feel safe,

likewise, but i wont let my wife walk unattended to the shops after dark. you only had to speak to dennis who used to run the shop about his experiences with residents of those flats.

i popped in there last night to get something i had forgotten. i admire the bravery of the group of young people who work there now.

Sheetstirer is right. We should keep using the shops if we want to improve the vibe. Avoiding the place would only make things worse. And thank God the supermarket was open when the injured guy needed help!

The 17 year old charged was apparently on bail for other violent offences.

Wonderful, just wonderful…

Ok, so here it is all you heartless, snob and misinformed.
How would you feel if you were at the bedside of a loved one who had been stabbed like this?
Please if you will just take a moment to fathom the feeling…
I just have a few things to say about this issue;
It doesn’t matter where you live! These things could happen just about anywhere, whether you live in Scullin, Red Hill, Belconnen or Tuggeranong you never know what is around the corner.
To start, ‘Chop71’ do you have a mental disability that prohibits you from writing a comment that is actually constructive? That is one of the most heartless, unnecessary comments i have ever seen. Do yourself a favour and stop posting.
Secondly “housos” that is a phrase that is so archaic. There are plenty of hard working people in this world that just cannot seem to make ends meet whatever they do which means they need to live in a government funded house. What is wrong with that? God forbid you judgemental people ever need help. GROW UP!
Lets hope this young man makes it through, after all he is MY FAMILY!

Maybe this FAMILY member of yours needs to take a good hard look at the people he is associating with? This bloke has already STABBED a person….did you hear me, STABBED a person!!!

You don’t associate with people like that unless you accept that getting stabby is ok, and if that’s the case then your family member must accept responsibility for being STUPID!

@ The Frots

Ellipsis (plural ellipses; from the Ancient Greek: ????????, élleipsis, “omission” or “falling short”) is a mark or series of marks that usually indicate an intentional omission of a word in the original text. An ellipsis can also be used to indicate a pause in speech, an unfinished thought, or, at the end of a sentence, a trailing off into silence (aposiopesis). When placed at the end of a sentence, the ellipsis can also inspire a feeling of melancholy longing. The ellipsis calls for a slight pause in speech.

The most common form of an ellipsis is a row of three periods or full stops (…) or a pre-composed triple-dot glyph (…). The usage of the em dash (—) can overlap the usage of the ellipsis. (Source: Wikipedia)

Please use dots responsibly.

You got that Frots? Let’s get our shit squared away here before the excessive use of dots causes someone to start getting stabby………………..
