The Chief Police Officer has just tweeted thusly:

2nd suspect in Braddon murder arrested in Queanbeyan – 20 yr man pulled knife after police spotted him on street but eventually surrendered.

UPDATE: This statement from ACT Policing:

A second man has been arrested in relation to the murder and aggravated robbery of a 27-year-old man in Braddon on Thursday (August 4).

ACT Policing members located the 20-year-old Turner man walking along Stornaway Road, Queanbeyan around 11:30am today (Monday, 8 August). At the time he was in company with a 17-year-old female.

Police approached the man, who then drew a knife and brandished it towards officers. A negotiation ensued, resulting in the man surrendering to police.

The man has been taken into custody and will face the Queanbeyan Court later today where ACT Policing will seek extradition.

You need to update your knowledge of Australian law. It is innocent until proven guilty, except on RiotAct where the Laura Norder mob are free to advocate lynching anyone suspected of committing a crime – they, of course, fail to see the contradiction in this.

It takes someone particularly devious to make up stuff like this.

Not guilty Your Honour. This Asian bloke dived at me out of nowhere and head-butted my bat while I was swinging it around.

If I hear anything else, especially anything about the suspects personal life, I will seriously spit the dummy…

For a moment there I thought that was an open invitation…

I hope one day you have the opportunity to look face to face at Mr and Mrs Zhao and say “not guilty”.

Adult crime deserves adult time.

Why do scum always have such f***ed up names?

30 years ago in the town I lived in, two people killed another lad they had met. One of the killers was 16 1/2, the other 19 years old. The whole town knew which one was the absolute headcase – the “minor”. He got 18 months in a “Quamby” prison, let out and to this day, I don’t know whether he reformed or not. Nevertheless, his life after relaese was his to play with. The other lad got nearly 20 years. He’s out now. I beleive it was either the only crime he had committed or the last one he committed. I’m not condoning the 2nd lads actions, but the concept that a minor does not have the adult intellect therefore is tried in a childrens court is bulls***.

Drawing a knife on police is pretty much an admission of guilt, The only problem is working out what he’s admitting to.

The low life forms may end up doing porridge… paid for by the rest of us taxpayers…. do we really believe they will be rehabilitated into civic-minded individuals after time at Her Majesty’s pleasure?

LOL at you both. Good job police. I’m surprised it was ACT Police… Where is AFP?

Um, why would the AFP have anything to do with this? Policing the ACT is done by ACT Policing (strange, I know). Whereas the AFP deals with National crimes and incidents.

The only strange thing is you making this comment… and getting it wrong.

ACT Policing refers to a business unit of the AFP. Police officers in the ACT are AFP. Simple.

All officers assigned to the ACT are under contract to the ACT Government but remain Commonwealth Officers sworn to the AFP and wearing AFP uniform.
When assaulted, the offence is “assault of a Commonwealth official”.
The Chief Police Officer is an assistant commissioner within the AFP.

The ACT has not had a distinct police force since 1979.

Assaulting a commonwealth official led to the creation of the AFP. Billy Hughes was pelted with rotten egg’s at a QLD conscription rally in 1917. The QLD state policeman refused to take any action against the egg throwers. Along the lines of ” I don’t have to do what you tell me”. Thus the AFP was born to enforce commonwealth laws and put an end to the rotten food throwers.

Makes you long for the bye gone day when slinging political shit was an over arm action.

“The ACT Government has to do more to clean up the Northbourne flats. Let me tell you, I don’t walk anywhere around here after 10pm. If the Govt truly wants to achieve their aim, they have to put a helluva lot more elbow grease into making this an area where people can feel safe.”

They should clear the lot out and move them to Parramatta in Sydney or Carlton in Melbourne, or some other god-awful sh*thole. If all the scum are kept together in one place it makes the rest of the country a better place for the rest of us. Canberra doesn’t need this, get rid of them.

I’m surprised at how relieved I feel that these two druggie psychopaths have been found and are behind bars – living not very far from where the poor man was murdered has felt pretty uncomfortable.

Couldn’t agree more. Here’s to hoping that ACT Housing and Police start to do something about this.

The ACT Government has to do more to clean up the Northbourne flats. One the one hand, they are bending over backwards (and forwards) for developers to build thousands of postage stamp size apartments around here, with the objective of ‘sustainable’ housing – which is overwhelmingly reliant on people walking into the city. Let me tell you, I don’t walk anywhere around here after 10pm. If the Govt truly wants to achieve their aim, they have to put a helluva lot more elbow grease into making this an area where people can feel safe.

Condolences to the family of the murdered man – what a sad waste.

You know I always imagined arrests in the streets of Queanbeyan going a little like this

i’m not arguing that they were criminal masterminds or just complete wankers who at least deserve to be arrested for being dumbarses (hello, pulling a knife on a cop is just plain dumb) but it disturbs me when assumptions are made without due process being carried out by people on here…

Jesus, relax, we aren’t a jury. A trial will still be taking place. And yes, assumptions will be made because with such limited information that’s all the general public has to work on.

If he pulls a knife on a cop he’s a dickhead anyway, so i’ll consider my private trial complete.

Silentforce 8:26 pm 08 Aug 11

1.Brandished and ensued.
They could just disarm me with their words.

2.I much prefer the Victorian Police version of negotiation
Suspect Draws knife
BANG!
Saves the cost of a trial.
+1

3. …and the no doubt classy female companion he was with.
I bet her first name is Skye.

All things await the trial.
