Why did this “security guard” wait three days before reporting it to police?

Trial by media – all those positive comments about how well people behaved just is not acceptable especially when there is a pic of a viscious headlock.

Something had to give, the HD footage, the haters hating, I am sure Mr Corbell has spoken to the CPO who has decided come hell or high water, this matter will be investigated to the full extent of the law. It is a mockery if you ask me, nobody seems to give a s%$t about the behaviour of locals on a weekend unless there is serious injury, just because its ‘Summernats’ it is all of a sudden so important?

If the people involved wanted Police action I am sure it would have happened there and then, after all Police were present inside this year.

Beat up I say…

These are normally donkeys that are dumb as doggy doo.

That’s not very kind. At least they’re earning a living, unlike the tens of thousands of welfare bludgers my taxes support in the ACT alone.

I wonder if it was the guy who kicked Nuckingfuts?

There is a FB page called “Bring Back Nuckingfuts”, aparrently (third hand from another forum) that guys name, address & registraion number of his car were placed on the page but was removed later. I had a look & it was not there & it was pretty tame really

@GLC, no one has said it doesnt come without its problems, its just that the world does not implode every time its on like some people are suggesting.

A security officer is somebody who is employed by the government ie. Protective service

A security guard is somebody who is employed by a private company ie. Mall cop, crowd controller, vehicle driver etc. These are normally donkeys that are dumb as doggy doo.

Why did you put security guard in scare quotes? Do you think he’s an anti-Natter posing as an assault victim to further their sinister agenda?
