Scum attack blind man in Spence

By johnboy - 30 May 2011 7

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an assault in Spence on Friday night (May 27) in which a 61-year-old man was injured.

The victim, who is vision impaired, had been waiting at a bus stop on Alpen Street, Spence at about 10.30pm when he was attacked without warning by two males.

The victim was knocked to the ground where he was kicked and punched by the two offenders until a passing motorist stopped and the offenders fled the area.

As a result of the incident the victim suffered a number of abrasions on his legs and face as well as swelling to his right eye. He was taken to Calvary Hospital for treatment.

Both offenders are described as being approximately 17 to 19 years-of- age. They were both wearing jeans and one of the offenders was wearing a dark coloured hooded jumper.

Anyone who may have been in the area at the time of the incident or could assist in identifying the offenders is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

I walk my dog every night in Spence about this time. I’m very sorry I was not walking near by to help this guy out.

The proliferation of such elements in our society has clearly given rise to the need for more detail when identifying people as scum. E.g. Level One scum wouldn’t go two to one against an innocent bystander, Level Two Scum would go two to one, but not against a 60-year-old, and Level Three Scum would go two to one against a 60-year-old, but would still draw the line at a vision impaired 60-year-old. The scum described above have clearly decided to plumb new depths of abhorrent behaviour, and as The Frots says above, all the rest of us can really do is say “WTF………….????”

What do you bet it went along these lines:

“whatcha f*cken lookin at ya c*nt?”
“Er, nothing”.
“Whatcha f*cken mean ya c*nt? Ya takin the p*ss?”
“Er, no, I’m actually vision impaired, so I can’t really see anything.”
“F*ck you c*nt, yer full a shit”
“No, I assure you, I really am partially blind”
“Well turn yer f*cken head the other way, ya c*nt”
“I beg your pardon?”
“That’s it, yer f*cked ya c*nt, we’re gonna teach ya some respekt.”

As someone who is Vision Impaired and been faced with a verbal attack that I always felt could have gone this way, I am appalled and like an earlier poster said, if only we could 5 minutes with these low life GRADE A SCUM.

Now, if I didn’t know any better, I’d say you were there!

Also, there was a scum attack at Erindale Vikings which may have actually blinded a man on Friday night.

Not good news. I hope that the victim is okay.

WTF………………????

Words simply aren’t enough to explain what I would do to these pigs. It’s only 1030hrs and already there have been 3 posts today on violence or violence related issues. I’m leaving the computer for a little while to check on where I am geographically – I thought it was Canberra but perhaps I’m actually in the middle east somewhere.

Damn my time-travel machine!
